He’s having a rough time these days.
His latest movie, Transcendence is proving to be a box office bust on its opening weekend, after bringing in only $12 million by Saturday. This follows Depp’s flops The Lone Ranger, Dark Shadows, and The Rum Diaries.
But not to worry, because a lot of the blame for the flick has fallen on just the overall movie itself, not Depp’s involvement. It’s getting terrible ratings both on Rotten Tomatoes and CinemaScore! However, since Johnny is one of the hottest and hardest working men in Hollywood, BoxOffice.com vice-president Phil Contrino says he thinks it’s a matter of over-exposure:
“I think he's become over-exposed in the U.S., not just in the movies, but because of all the celebrity coverage that he has no control over. He's made some questionable decision in terms of his movie choices, and you string a few of those together and you can hurt your good will. He's such a big movie star that all it will take is one big role and he'll be back.”
We agree on the bouncing back, not so much the over exposure because you can never have enough Johnny Depp!
And the good news is that the actor has lots of chances to redeem himself, since he’s working on Disney’s Through the Looking Glass, the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean flick Dead Men Tell No Tales, the horror film Tusk, London Fields, Mortdecai, and Into The Woods. Oh, and he also landed the role of Whitey Bulger in Black Mass.
So, even though Transcendence is flopping around like a fish out of water, Mr. Depp will redeem himself in no time!
