Honestly, aside from Gwyneth Paltrow, the teaser for Mortdecai is ridiculously hilarious. Johnny Depp plays a rake and art dealer on the chase for a stolen piece of art. He must use his charm and his cutting wit to get the job done. At one point in the trailer, Mortdecai shoots some poor guy straight back to Jesus with a shotgun by accident. I laughed the whole time. Check it out!
Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny 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.
