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.

    Olivia Munn has a nice pair of tits…..IJS

    • James Franco

      She should expose them more

    Hey, Johnny Depp is playing a weird character, what a shocker!

    • zomney

      But this time he doesn’t have a bird on his head or dread locks, so it’s a little different….or something

    • MIXTER

      whats wrong with that? would you rather he just play the same role in every movie like robert deniro or tom cruise? Its called being a character actor! Takes more skill. Embrace it!

        Actually, possibly the problem is that these ‘oddball’ characters have become more the norm and they’re kind of blending together.

        At this point for him to play a down to earth, every day sort of human being would be the unconventional thing for him to do.

        This summer, Johnny Depp is “My Neighbor John”.

        Julie and Tom have it all: a nice home, two kids, and…a perfectly normal neighbor named John. (Johnny Depp waves from his yard)

        Tom: That John guy seems like a nice fellow
        Julie: Yes, he bought some lemonade from Lindsay’s lemonade stand last weekend.
        Tom: That was nice of him.
        Julie: It was.

        But there’s something about John they don’t know: John has a dark…..room, because he’s a practicing photographer for the local paper. He works the typical hours, mows his lawn, and pays his homeowner dues as required.

        Coming to theaters July 4th

        Third Act Twist:

        Julie & Tom don’t exist, they’re all hallucinations from neighbor John’s mind!!!!!!! He’s been alone the entire time, having become completely and hopelessly addicted to rum!!!

        This does seem like the same thing he’s doing in every other movie.

        Although this one seems like he’s trying a bit to channel Peter Sellers.

  • Dan_K

    Looks awful.

  • DEADP00L

    Horse says THIS sucks.

    Amazing mustache. That is all.

  • bidi

    i think it actually looks pretty entertaining. not understanding all the hate

  • Micoy

    I’m not (anymore) a fan of Depp. But it seems that you guys have already decided that this movie sucks… After a single trailer? Are you so good to judge a creative works just with a glimpse of it? WOW!

    • milo

      There are always exceptions but for the most part a great trailer gives the hope that a movie may be great, and a terrible trailer doesn’t inspire confidence.

    looks ok, hard to tell from a trailer like this though. one thing that is for sure, that cast is absolutely fantastic.

  • theseeker7

    I wonder if he’s ever going to put together his remake run at the Thin Man series, feels like a good 3 years ago (at LEAST) of first hearing he was trying to get attached to that. I don’t know, given how far down the rabbit hole (pun not intended) Depp has gone the last decade of producing something just as much incoherent rambling dreck, as he then can something that’s so offbeat all the right producers fall in love and America has been given a nice new popular brand for the kids to zap to like an electromagnet.

    but my original point being, that it would have to have juuuuuuust the right combination of screenwriter, leading lady (to play Nora going toe to toe with and frankly drink to drink with dear old Nicky) and of course more important than all — the DIRECTOR!!

    but what I’m seeing in this Mortjeidca footage, it looks like he alreadly is testin out the N&N dynamic here on his own…. hey, why not multi-task, yea?
