Johnny Depp leads an all-star cast in this tash-twirling comical caper

Johnny Depp returns to our screens this January as the roguish Charlie Mortdecai, leading an all-star cast that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Jeff Goldblum in David Koepp’s action-comedy.

This is the second collaboration for the pair, who also teamed up for dark thriller Secret Window. Koepp’s latest offering is a decidedly lighter affair, with the debonair Depp as an oddball art dealer in frantic pursuit of a stolen painting, fending off the MI5 and a host of irate others hot on his heels.

 In cinemas from Friday 23 January
