And same here, I’m sorry again for the delay. I uploaded the latest on set photos of Johnny’s current movie project “LAbyrinth” to the photo gallery. Enjoy!
Johnny Depp thanked fans for their support in a speech at the 2017 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night – just days after finalizing his tempestuous divorce from wife Amber Heard.
While accepting the favorite movie icon award at the show’s close, Depp told the audience, “I came here for one reason tonight and one reason only. I came here for you, the people, who through whatever good times or bad, you know, have stood by me, trusted me. Thank you.”
He added, “You’ve very, very graciously invited me here tonight. I appreciate that very much – you have no idea how much I appreciate it.”
“I was very deeply affected by the kindness of your recognition and by the well wishes to my family and to myself, which is why it’s especially meaningful to me to be here in front of you and say thank you,” Depp said during his Wednesday speech,”and tell you that I truly feel that need to thank you because in all honesty we all know that none of us, especially me, wouldn’t be standing up here if it wasn’t for you tonight.”
He ended the show with a call-out to his late mother – who died in May 2015 – saying, “Give ’em hell, Betty Sue!”
Bardem’s character will wreck havoc on the ill fated Captain Jack after he escapes from the Devil’s Triangle. The only hope for Jack is to find the legendary Trident of Poseidon, which seems an impossible task considering Jack’s current miserable condition.
The lord of the sea, who was once sailing on the legendary Black Pearl, is now helming a small, dilapidated ship named the Dying Gull. It appears he needs major support from his uneasy allies including Carina Smyth and Henry. It is still unclear whether Captain Hector Barbossa will play a friend or a foe to the crushed Jack.
The synopsis reads: “The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea — notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitiful small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.”
Johnny was spotted filming scenes for his upcoming 2017 movie LAbyrinth in a suit on Tuesday (December 13) in Los Angeles.
The cast and crew shot on a golf course, as Johnny rode around in a golf cart.
In case you don’t know, he stars in the film as a detective who investigates the Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. murders.
I added 5 LQ images to the photo gallery, which are tagged, unfortunately. Enjoy!
Johnny Depp, Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone are among the Hollywood stars set to take part in Los Angeles’ latest — and perhaps most curious — addition to awards season.
The actors are set to attend China’s Huading Awards, to be held at L.A.’s Ace Hotel on Thursday (December 15). But before awards analysts start wondering whether they have to factor an odd-ball variable into their Oscars prediction formulas, it’s worth noting the Chinese award show’s unique history and content.
A live awards gala roughly akin to the Oscars, the Emmys, the Tonys, the Grammys and the People’s Choice Awards all rolled into one — with a strong Chinese twist — the event dishes out honors to talent from all fields of entertainment, from stage theater to film, pop music to TV, and even traditional Chinese opera. The film categories, crucially, hand out honors to movies from the year prior, so titles like The Martian, Fast & Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron are among the nominees in the show’s best global picture category this year (nominations tend to have a populist bent).
Johnny brought some festive cheer to some sick children after dressing up as Captain Jack.
The Hollywood superstar surprised patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London when he turned up in his full Pirates of Caribbean costume.
So yesterday he gave poorly kids an early Christmas present, but donning his famous costume and becoming Captain Jack for the day.
One onlooker who saw the 53-year-old star posted a snap on Instagram, and wrote: “This is actual Johnny Depp. Just came in to the hospital. I’m so confused.” Another person added a snap saying: “Yes folks that is indeed Johnny Depp with my lovely niece! One of the few upsides of being stuck in Great Ormond St for Xmas is you get some pretty awesome visitors.”
Johnny has spoken in the past about his appreciation for the hospital, and the treatment Lily-Rose received.
Speaking on The Graham Norton Show last December he said: “For me it’s a gift. They give me the gift.”
He added: “When my daughter was ill in Great Ormond Street, it was the darkest period of my life. I’d always done these visits but after that experience the visits became more and more important.
“The kids are so courageous but to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.”
A group of A-list talent came together in November to help 16-year old cancer patient Anthony Jonathan Conti fulfill his dream of writing and starring in his own film. Johnny Depp, J.K. Simmons, Laura Dern, Penelope Ann Miller, Chad Coleman, and Richard Chamberlain were joined by David Lynch, Catherine Hardwicke, Theodore Melfi, Sam Raimi, Peter Farrelly, and Sean Furst for The Black Ghiandola, a post-apocalyptic zombie story about a young man whose family has been killed and who risks his life to save a young girl he has grown to love. Filming took place November 18-20.
Anthony, diagnosed this summer with stage 4 Adrenal Cortical Cancer, stars in and co-wrote the film with Scott Kosar (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), with additional writing by Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice). The production was made possible by the Make A Film Foundation, a nonprofit established in 2007 that helps children enduring serious or life-threatening medical conditions to create short film legacies by teaming them with industry professionals who volunteer their time.
When news broke that Johnny was set to “co-star” in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, the sequel to this mont’s wizarding world expansion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, speculation immediately zeroed in on who Johnny might play. Given that Gellert Grindelwald, former friend of Albus Dumbledore, supposedly has a major role to play in this new Fantastic Beasts franchise, folks began wondering if Depp might be bringing the dark wizard to life. Well, yes, it’s true: Johnny Depp is playing Gellert Grindelwald.
The news was confirmed by director David Yates himself, who directed the final four Harry Potter films as well as Fantastic Beasts and is returning for the sequel. In speaking with The Leaky Cauldron, he revealed why they chose Johnny to fill such a pivotal role:
“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”
Great news to all the Harty Potter fans among us (which includes me!). It’s officially been confirmed that Johnny will be featured in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The second movie will be released in 2018 and directed by David Yates with Eddie Redmayne returning as Newt Scamander.
No further details have been revealed about Johnny’s role except that it’a going to be a co-starring one.
Stay tuned for more information! By they way, I’m super excited about those news since I’ve been a huge Harry Potter since the first book. Now my favorite actor is going to take part in my favorite book saga.
First of all, I’d like to apologize for the server issues at the moment. I’m not able to upload the recent images to the photo gallery due to problems with the server connections. I hope to get that fixed as soon as possible!
