Directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Focus and Crazy, Stupid, Love), the feature film lifts inspiration from Kim Barker’s wartime memoir, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan, shipping Fey’s budding Chicago Tribune reporter off to the front lines as a war correspondent.
And so, without a shred of experience to call her own, Fey’s lead finds herself knee deep in Operation Enduring Freedom – Aka the global war on terrorism – as our photojournalist begins capturing the skirmishes across the sun-scorched region. As today’s trailer attests, overseas reporting is by no means her forte, and Ficarra and Requa are doubling down on the fish-out-of-water dynamic for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. There’s an air of Liz Lemon’s slick sense »
- Michael Briers
The trailer begins with Robbie’s British journalist asking Fey for permission to sleep with Fey’s bodyguard — which Fey gives after only a brief hesitation. It ends with Fey on camera and describing Afghanistan’s first woman driver, who immediately crashes the car.
“That sucks for women,” Fey responds.
Freeman plays a Scottish war photographer and Molina is a local official — who both make advances on Fey’s Kim Barker.

"This is an extreme environment. People with actual experience make bad decisions here." Paramount has debuted another new trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the comedy from Glenn Ficarra & John Requa starring Tina Fey as a TV reporter sent to do coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan for her first time. It's a good story to tell, and they try to have fun with it, but sometimes the jokes in this fall flat and it doesn't look that good, but other times it looks solid. This also stars Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Nicholas Braun, Josh Charles, Alfred Molina, plus Christopher Abbott. This trailer is slightly better than the first one, but it still doesn't really show too much. Opening in theaters next month. Here's the second trailer for Glenn Ficarra & John Requa's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, direct via YouTube: You can watch the first official trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot here, »

The actor slips into his best Donald Trump mode for a hilarious Funny or Die spoof, impersonating the presidential hopeful in a cheeky biopic that features a slew of star-studded appearances. The faux film, titled The Art of the Deal: The Movie, is a 1980s-set 50-minute romp that jumps off the mogul's best-selling book of the same name - but with a twist.

Thanks to his win in the New Hampshire primary, Donald Trump has momentum, and more so than ever, he's ripe for satire. Funny or Die has released a 50-minute movie called The Art of the Deal, which stars Johnny Depp as Trump.
The Art of the Deal is a faux-adaptation of Trump’s best-selling book of the best name, which has recently served as a noticeable influence on campaign strategy. For the film’s lead role, Depp dons Trump’s signature hairpiece and puts on his best New York accent, and a loaded supporting cast backs him up. The actors who appear alongside Depp include Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Lloyd, and Kristen Schaal. The film’s director, Jeremy Konner, is a Funny or Die vet best known for his work on Drunk History.
Trump is an easy guy to make fun of, and Funny or »

A spellbinding chameleon, Johnny Depp has once again completely transformed himself into one of America's most prominent and colorful characters: Donald Trump. In a nearly hour long satirical movie by Funny or Die, the Golden Globe-winning actor traded in his celebrity veneer for that of the Republican presidential hopeful. The parody takes place circa 1987 when the real estate mogul had just released his first book, Trump: The Art of the Deal. A #1 New York Times bestseller, the financial guide helped launch Trump's celebrity status as an American tycoon, an era of the Donald's life that is highlighted in this brand new sketch by Funny or Die featuring Depp, Ron Howard, Alfred Molina and »
Johnny Depp is know for creating memorable movie characters, but his portrayal of Donald Trump in a new video spoof by comedy site Funny or Die is one for the record books. He is Donald, right down to the mogul’s brass balls! Depp appears in the movie trailer with an all-star cast that includes Michaela Watkins as ex-wife Ivanka Trump. “Happy Days” star and Howard pal, Henry Winkler, Patton Oswalt, Alfred Molina, Andy Richter, Jack McBrayer, Jacob Tremblay, Stephen Merchant and Paul Scheer. ...Read More »

Johnny Depp is having a yuuuuuuuge day. He was just revealed to be starring in Universal's "The Invisible Man" movie, but first you can see him as the very visible Donald Trump in the 50-minute Funny or Die movie, "The Art of the Deal."
Depp and a dozen other major celebs shot this back in December, and it's being presented now as a "lost film" directed by Trump himself in the 1980s, based on his own 1987 advice book. The "TV movie" starts with an intro from Ron Howard, and includes appearances from Alfred Molina, Robert Morse, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer, Michaela Watkins, Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Lloyd, Kristen Schaal, Andy Richter, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Tymberlee Hill, Alf, Jordan Coleman, Joe Nuñez, and Jeremy Konner.
But the real star is Johnny Depp as Trump, and his impression is pretty strong. JDepp is always at his best when he lays it on thick, »

Well, Funny or Die has done it. The site made a movie about Donald Trump, and it's starring Johnny Freaking Depp as Trump (if you thought Depp's Whitey Bulger impression was good, wait until you see his Trump. Just awesome), based on Trump's best-selling book Art of the Deal, and done in the style of an 80s TV movie that never aired, as, Ron Howard explains, it was pre-empted by a Monday Night Football game. Besides Depp and Howard, the film stars Jack McBrayer, Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Kristen Schaal, and Henry Winkler as Mayor Ed Koch. Plus a ton of other familiar faces. Like Alf.

Seemingly everyone has a Donald Trump impression, and that now includes Johnny Depp. The actor behind Jack Sparrow stars as the billionaire businessman in a new 50-minute Funny or Die film, “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie,” which surprised the Internet on Wednesday. The all-star cast also includes Patton Oswalt as Merv Griffin and Jack McBrayer as Trump architect Der Scutt. Henry Winkler, Jacob Tremblay, Stephen Merchant, Alfred Molina, Michaela Watkins, Andy Richter and others are along for some 1980s fun. The period movie’s original theme song comes courtesy of Kenny Loggins, because, of course it does. »

With the New Hampshire win in his back pocket, Funny or Die has decided to finally release the long-lost Donald Trump biopic The Art of the Deal: The Movie. And who better to portray the billionaire himself? Johnny Depp, of course. Jack Sparrow is nearly unrecognizable under that wig and make-up, and he gives one heck of a performance in this forgotten TV movie from a bygone era.
Accomplished actor and director Ron Howard hosts this autobiographical look at how Trump acquired his fortune. It arrives from Funny or Die just as the presidential hopeful took the New Hampshire primary away from the other Republican prospects vying for the White House. As Howard explains it, the movie was written, directed and stars Donald Trump himself.
This colorful expose is a treasure from a forgotten age, when TV just wasn't what it is today. And people anxiously awaited their small screen movie-of-the-week. »
Mordecai. The Wolf from Into the Woods. That little weird French-Canadian detective from Kevin Smith’s Tusk. Johnny Depp has made a career out of transformation, and he’s done it again in Funny or Die’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie. According to director Ron Howard, the 50-minute film adaptation of Trump’s 1987 memoir/business-advice book, directed by Drunk History’s Jeremy Konner and written by @midnight’s Joe Randazzo, was found at a yard sale outside Phoenix. Then again, Ron Howard is a notorious liar. Depp stars alongside Alfred Molina, Patton Oswalt, Henry Winkler, and Kristen Schaal, with Michaela Watkins as Ivana Trump. You can watch the entire film here to see Depp’s miraculous mutation, and you can be goddamn sure when Donald Trump wins the presidency, his first point of order will be getting Johnny Depp an Oscar, which will then be made out of pure brass. »

While it's easy to poke fun at Johnny Depp for some of the choices he makes ("Mortdecai"), he can really turn it on when he wants to ("Black Mass"). And the actor hilariously goes for it, leading the big comedy surprise which has just dropped, and should take the wind out of the sails of Donald Trump's victory in New Hampshire last night. Funny Or Die has released the mock documentary "The Art Of The Deal: The Movie," featuring Depp as Donald Trump (yes, really) and a star-studded cast including Ron Howard (who narrates), Alfred Molina, Robert Morse, Patton Oswalt, Jack McBrayer, Michaela Watkins, Henry Winkler, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Lloyd, Kristen Schaal, Andy Richter, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Tymberlee Hill, Alf, Jordan Coleman, Joe Nuñez, and more. Jeremy Konner ("Drunk History") directs, and Kenny Loggins wrote the theme song. Read More: 5 Ways Johnny Depp Can Get His Career Back »

Donald Trump woke up to more than just a win in the New Hampshire primary Wednesday: Funny or Die have unleashed their 50-minute film The Art of the Deal: The Movie, a faux-biopic centered around the mogul's best-selling business book starring Johnny Depp in the role of Trump.
"Thought to be lost in the Cybill Shepherd blouse fire of '89, The Art of the Deal was a TV movie based on the best-selling Donald Trump autobiography of the same name. In fact, it was written, directed and starred Donald Trump himself, »
He’s played a host of wacky characters, but Johnny Depp may have found the most outlandish yet. Produced in secret by Funny or Die, the actor has portrayed Donald Trump in Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie, a 50-minute biopic special presented as a lost movie from the 1980s, “directed” by none other than the presidential candidate.
“The plan was to move really fast because we thought Trump would go away, as least as a presidential candidate. When he bizarrely didn’t go away, we had a little more time. But that meant keeping the secret for longer,” Funny or Die editor-in-chief’s Owen Burke tells NY Times. “We had a few people sign nondisclosures, but mostly we just begged people not to say anything.”
