Johnny Depp is the moustachioed star of Mortdecai, the art heist comedy caper set to hit theatres in January. And when better to debut a trailer featuring a pretty impressive 'stache  than in the heart of moustache season?

Based on a series of comic-thriller novels from 1970s, Mortdecai is a throwback to the Pink Panther movies with Charlie Mortdecai himself taking facial inspiration from the moustache of Peter SellersInspector Clouseau. »

Johnny Depp Layers On The Spoof In New Trailer For Mortdecai

11 November 2014 12:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Johnny Depp’s transition from a serious actor to parody player is still continuing to develop. From his over-the-top pirate, a hyperbolic Native American and lest we forget the stream of caricatures he’s happy to keep rolling out for Tim Burton, there’s no stopping this next chapter in his acting career. For his next over-the-top role, he’ll be adding the title of “part-time rogue” to his resume in this winter’s bumbling comedy, Mortdecai.

For David Koepp’s screwball chucklefest, Depp is perfectly cast as an art dealer tasked with jet-setting around the globe to locate a missing painting. The artwork in question allegedly contains the whereabouts to a hidden trove of Nazi treasure, so, he’s on a quest to find this untold wealth of gold bars.

In the first initial teaser which debuted earlier this year, the emphasis was firmly on the show-don’t-tell angle. »

Watch: Johnny Depp is a Moron in the Second Trailer for 'Mortdecai'

11 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's a moment in the second trailer for the art heist comedy Mortdecai where Johnny Depp, as the title character, sighs audibly out of exasperation. That's exactly how I feel when watching this latest tease for the film coming in February of next year. Honestly, I don't know how this movie got made. No, I haven't seen the film yet, so I'm not saying that because I know it's terrible. But I'm saying that because I have no idea who this film appeals to beyond people who will see anything that Johnny Depp appears in on the big screen. Maybe that's enough, but this trailer just looks like another Pink Panther remake to ignore. Watch! Here's the second trailer for David Koepp's Mortdecai, originally from Yahoo: If you haven't seen the teaser trailer for Mortdecai yet, you can still watch it right here.
