Johnny Depp’s Shocking Transformation For His Latest Movie: What’s It About?

Published

on

The film is now available on DVD and streaming on HULU

Even though Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood’s most well-known actors, his recent projects haven’t generated much buzz. For a while, he and his ex-wife Amber Heard were involved in a contentious defamation case that culminated with a verdict that was largely in Depp’s favor.

Depp’s most recent major motion picture, Minamata, has now been formally released on DVD and streaming as he gets ready for another court case. Deppreleased a small video of his transformation process to commemorate the occasion.

The Samuel Goldwyn Films-distributed movie Minamata is available on Hulu. Given that it’s the first movie starring the Pirates of the Caribbean star to be released in a while, it’s not unreasonable to assume that a sizable number of people may be interested in checking it out. Of course, at this point, the idea of how it will be received on the streamer is pure conjecture.

What is Minamata about?

Based on the same-named novel by Aileen Mioko Smith and W. Eugene Smith, the film was also produced by Johnny Depp. Depp plays the late Smith, an introverted American photojournalist who visited Japan in the 1970s to look into the emergence of an unexplained illness.

From there, Smith fights the corporate entity that is responsible for the disease and tries to expose the world to the events leading up to the tragedy. In the process, he elevates himself to the status of an industry icon.

In reality, Minamata’s journey to the big screen involved some challenges. The film, which had received favorable early reviews, had been scheduled to open in theaters in the United States in February 2021, but the COVID-19 pandemic ultimately forced a postponement.

Many people at the time seemed to be ignorant of the studio’s choice because they thought the movie bombed because of how little money it made that weekend. The movie finally hit theaters this past February and earned a pitiful $1.7 millionduring its run.
