Johnny Depp doesn’t post on his Instagram account that often, but he made an exception for an exciting new project that was just released.

The Oscar-nominated actor’s new movie City of Lies was just released in theaters across the U.S. and he took to social media to promote the film.

“Thank you to Voletta Wallace and the Poole family for allowing Brad, Forest, myself and the crew to tell this timely and important story. Truth is a rare bird. All the more reason to search for it,” Johnny captioned a post. “City of Lies in US theatres today. VOD on April 9th. More territories to be added soon.”

Here is the movie’s synopsis: “Los Angeles Police Department detective Russell Poole has spent years trying to solve his biggest case — the murders of The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur — but after two decades, the investigation remains open. Jack Jackson, a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies.”

Also starring in the movie is Oscar winner Forest Whitaker.

Johnny Depp Wants Retrial in Libel Case, Claims Amber Heard Failed to Make Her Charitable Donations

Johnny Depp‘s legal team stood before the UK Court of Appeal on Thursday (March 18) to argue why they believe he deserves a retrial in his Amber Heard trial.

Depp requested a retrial back in December for his 2020 libel claim against The Sun over an article calling him a “wife beater” amid his ex wife’s allegations against him, which a High Court judge found was “substantially true.”

His lawyers argued today that Amber has failed to pay charitable donations from her divorce settlement with him, which was supposed to total $7 million. They called this a “manipulative lie” that “tipped the scales,” according to Deadline.

Meanwhile, Amber‘s lawyers have responded to the claim that she pocketed the divorce settlement.

About if the appeal will be granted, Lord Justice Underhill said, “We are not going to reach an immediate decision today but we will make it very shortly and it will be handed down in writing.”

Mads Mikkelsen is discussing his new role.

The 55-year-old actor spoke out in a profile for WSJ. Magazine.

Here’s what he had to say…

On taking over Johnny Depp’s role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise: “I don’t feel constrained at all. I think it would be creative suicide if I tried to copy what Johnny did. It’s also very specific. He’s a wonderful actor that nobody can copy, so trying to would be insane. Obviously, I have to find my own path.”

On the role his kids thought was the coolest, starring in Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” music video: “Yes, I was the bitch. But I never knew quite why or how I became the bitch…that made me go off on the cool meter among my kids. Bond— fine, OK. Star Wars movie—kind of OK. But working with Rihanna—just top-notch. You know, I might need to get in another video soon.”

On what he does on a night off: “There is a game in Europe called handball, which is very big. Denmark is in the world championships, and we’re reigning champions. So I’m going to watch that tonight. Everyone in the country follows it. It’s like—don’t ask me to explain it. Just watch it. It’s much easier.”

Here’s what he said when asked if he’s spoken to Johnny Depp.
