Lionsgate has released four Mortdecai character posters online, and all of them feature the title character’s dapper facial hair. The film stars Johnny Depp as the roguish Charlie Mortdecai, an art dealer who finds himself in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold (everyone wants Nazi gold these days). My hope for Mortdecai is that it just manages to be a fun romp rather than a reminder of how hard Depp tries to do wacky characters.
Hit the jump to check out the Mortdecai posters. The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Aubrey Plaza, Jeff Goldblum, Oliver Platt, and Paul Bettany. Mortdecai opens January 23, 2015.
Here’s the official synopsis for Mortdecai:
Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
