This gallery collects the photos which the Zone offered as the "Picture of the Week" during the year 2010—a wonderful year in which we had the privilege of seeing Johnny Depp out in public often. Following our custom for the past twelve years, our Picture of the Week always privileges new photos of Johnny whenever they are available; however, when Johnny is not out-and-about, we fill the void with beloved vintage photos that attempt to capture the full range of Johnny Depp's career. Also following Zone tradition, we "held over" some favorite pictures for more than one week because we could not bear to part with them too quickly.
The gallery displays 48 photographs in the order in which they were featured on the Zone, so it begins with Johnny Depp’s surprise appearance at the People’s Choice Awards, when he was named Favorite Movie Actor of the Decade. Wow! Photos of Johnny’s trip to Emir Kusturica’s film festival in Kustendorf and his promotional appearances for Tim Burton’s billion-dollar blockbuster ALICE IN WONDERLAND in Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo highlight the first months of the year. From March through May, we were treated to extraordinarily beautiful photos of Johnny in Venice as he filmed THE TOURIST for Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. In July, cameras began to roll on PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 4: ON STRANGER TIDES; the gallery shows Johnny in Hawaii during filming and appearing (as Captain Jack Sparrow) in a video shown at Comic Con. After a performance at the Voices for Justice concert in Little Rock, Johnny returned to filming ON STRANGER TIDES in the UK; we have photos from location shooting in Greenwich and from Johnny’s impromptu visit, in costume, to a local school. The final months of 2010 feature still photographs from THE TOURIST and promotional appearances by Johnny in support of the film in New York, Berlin, and Rome. All in all, a wonderfully satisfying year, full of accolades, good work, and surprises!
