Movie Preview: Public Enemies Stuff that we probably could have predicted about the trailer for Michael Mann's gangster movie, Public Enemies: this film will be intense, Johnny Depp is an awesome actor, and this cast overall is absolutely gorgeous (Depp, Christian Bale, and Marion Cotillard? Yes, please). Check out the clip!
Stuff that we probably could have predicted about the trailer for Michael Mann's gangster movie, Public Enemies: This film will be intense, Johnny Depp is an awesome actor, and this cast overall is absolutely gorgeous (Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard? Yes, please). Michael Mann has proven that he works quite well with crime/action movies and Public Enemies is, of course, all crime and a lot of action. The trailer alone got my blood pumping.
As the story description goes, "the Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s." Depp plays Dillinger, Channing Tatum is Pretty Boy Floyd and Stephen Graham plays Baby Face Nelson. Bale plays top FBI agent Melvin Purvis while Cotillard is Dillinger's lady, Billie Frechette.
Public Enemies opens July 1. Though the story is dark, something about this trailer just makes me grin. You can check it out and tell me what you think if you read more
Johnny Depp was showing off some quirky outfits both on and off the set of Public Enemies in LA yesterday. When he wasn't on camera, Johnny was clean shaven but showing off that armful of tattoos with one of his standard flannels around his waist. Back into character, he sported a neon tie and gross 'stache — seems a silly departure from the gangster wardrobe we've been getting a few sneak peeks at. He's still pretty hot either way, but which Johnny do you prefer?
Johnny Depp had his 45th birthday yesterday, but he didn't take a day off to celebrate. Instead, he was back on the set of Public Enemies in Chicago with a gun under his arm and a glare on his face.

Johnny Depp was back in his gangster fedora — not to be confused with his favorite brown hat — to continue working on Public Enemies in Wisconsin on Wednesday. We've already heard about how gracious he's been with his fans while filming the movie, and this weekend Johnny lovers will be getting a special treat.

Johnny has been extra nice to fans while filming this movie, and word of his autograph-giving ways must be getting around. Hundreds of people camped out last night near his set in Aurora, Illinois in hopes of catching a glimpse of Mr. Depp. Like the nice guy he is, Johnny came out around midnight to have a meet and greet with waiting fans.
