Lionsgate has released the first Mortdecai trailer, and it looks rather amusing.  The film stars Johnny Depp as the roguish Charlie Mortdecai, an art dealer who finds himself in a race to recover a stole painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.  None of those plot details are mentioned in this trailer.  Instead, it quickly conveys the goofy character, and even though this is yet another oddball/eccentric part for Depp, at least it comes off as quite entertaining.

Hit the jump to check out the Mortdecai trailer.  The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Aubrey Plaza, Jeff Goldblum, Oliver Platt, and Paul BettanyMortdecai opens February 6, 2015.

Watch the trailer below.

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.
