Johnny Depp Launches NFT Collection

It's a really nifty project but so, so complicated. I just wish his portraits were available to simply buy as prints (not the originals obviously) for us all mere mortals who want to own them and not this :grin2:

MINAMATA Updates

I'm not worried about a DVD/Blu Ray release considering Samuel Goldwyn Films has put out indie films with tiny budgets on Blu Ray recently. About the release, I can't believe anyone seriously believed they had a shot. Award frontrunners are established already by the time we hit November or somethin...

MINAMATA Updates

IFOD is indeed saying tomorrow's the last day in most theaters which doesn't make any sense to me. If there's no expansion and that's it, then Samuel Goldwyn just gave it a token release just so it would qualify for awards. So bizarre. Or it didn't perform at all, but I've seen no numbers for it.

MINAMATA Updates

What's annoying is that the film is available on Blu Ray in multiple countries but none of them (on purpose perhaps?) have English subtitles for the Japanese portions which are pretty substantial. I'm keeping my eye on a UK Blu Ray release but nothing so far.

MINAMATA Updates

Once again, the film will likely expand from week to week, and that won't necessarily show up right now on the link you posted (and the numbers doesn't always get updated to the latest info).

Stephen Deuters (one of the writers) liked my tweet saying the film should expand gradually.

MINAMATA Updates

"Distributor Samuel Goldwyn Films said expansion is to be determined." from Deadline. It most likely is going to expand from week to week. That's how platform releases go, like with award films. A few theaters at first, then expanding. I mean, Minamata was never planned to open wide like blockbuster...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

Seen several people on Twitter say this is huge. Potentially that he could win without the trial going through or am I misunderstanding?

Johnny Depp Launches NFT Collection

Yeah, get ready for a backlash. I'll admit NFTs baffle me, it just seems so utterly pointless and bizarre, and people overall really seem to vilify any celebrity promoting or getting into the NFT world themselves. I imagine Johnny isn't aware of this and thinks it's a cool idea. After all, Kevin Smi...

Re: JEANNE DU BARRY Updates

Johnny, having heard him speak French in recent events, still has a noticeable accent. It's one of those languages where you can always tell whenever you have characters who are supposed to be French, who are not played by French actors. So I've been wondering if either Johnny is going to heavily wo...

MINAMATA Updates

What's the issue here? The film is getting released, several companies are shifting dates because of Omicron. I gotta say I'm partial to a hybrid model these days with a streaming component but it's really cool that they're doing a proper theatrical run.

MINAMATA Updates

Look, it's absolutely fine that Minamata probably won't be in the Oscars. The film has all sorts of other awards from other countries where the film industry is able to identify an electrically compelling movie. That ain't here -- the US is all about making money from shlock material that retreads ...

MINAMATA Updates

The film itself just doesn't have enough traction. There are plenty and plenty of films that are already earmarked for the Oscars, Golden Globes, etc, and it'd take a miracle for them to get in. It's awesome that they're campaigning, but it should have happened way earlier.

Oh brilliant, did they shoot themselves in the foot? This absolutely tracks with the rumor that Jo fought tooth and nail to keep Johnny on on FB3.

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

Highly doubt that someone like Costner would ever get mixed up in all this honestly.
