Johnny Depp Returns To Acting With Short Film For Sea Of Dawn

Johnny Depp returns to the screen with a short film for Sea of Dawn, a new mobile game. The Pirates of the Caribbean star was once one of Hollywood’s most commercially successful actors and has a long list of blockbuster movies to his name. Aside from portraying Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s Pirates franchise, Depp is known for starring in multi-movie hits such as Alice in Wonderland and Fantastic Beasts. He is also a three-time Oscar nominee. However, Depp’s reputation has suffered greatly in recent years.

In 2018, amid legal battles involving his ex-wife Amber Heard and her domestic abuse accusations against him, Depp was asked by Warner Bros. to resign from the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Subsequently, plans for him to do a sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film were dropped by Disney. Depp then took on several smaller projects and last appeared on the big screen with the limited release Minamata in 2020. While the film was critically praised, it was a stark contrast to the actor’s previous box office projects, grossing only $1.7 million against a budget of $11-13 million. Most recently, Depp made headlines for his defamation trial against Heard, which was ruled in favor of the embattled actor.

Following the heavily-publicized trial, Depp now surprises fans with a new mini-movie entitled “Adventurer’s Game” for the mobile game Sea of Dawn. The short film was made by the game’s Chinese developer, Mosasaur Studio, and shared online by Superpixel. In the four-minute video, Depp steps into the character of an eccentric sea-faring adventurer and trinket collector named Phillip Artoosh. Watch the clip below:

In the accompanying behind-the-scenes video, Depp reveals that he personally created the character himself and was deeply involved with Sea of Dawn’s production. Interestingly, the character Artoosh bears striking similarities with the actor’s most iconic role. Fans would note that the slurred speech, heavy makeup, and peculiar costume are all apparent references to Captain Jack Sparrow, which just might fuel renewed calls for Depp to return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Sea of Dawn’s promotional video is barely a comeback for Depp. Still, it’s definitely a pleasant surprise for fans who have been fervently wishing for his return. The outpouring of support from the public during the Depp vs. Heard trial proved that his star has not diminished. Despite controversies surrounding his personal life, Depp undoubtedly remains an immensely talented actor who can pull off any role with total ease. As the 59-year-old actor has repeatedly expressed his reluctance to return to his Pirates of the Caribbean role, it will be interesting to see what his next project could be. Whether Depp can still pull off another phenomenal box office hit remains to be seen, but he likely isn’t leaving acting behind any time soon.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
