The Johnny Depp specials will air in the popular MN+ property, Walk of Fame, starting the 5th of March, every Saturday night at 9.
Films to be aired in the Johnny Depp Walk of Fame on MN+include the 2005 musical fantasy, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Directed by Tim Burton, the storyline of the movie moves along with young Charlie, accompanied by Willy Wonka, in a guided tour he has won through the most magnificent chocolate factory in the world.
Another remarkable movie is Dark Shadows, a 2012 American horror comedy based on the gothic television soap opera Dark Shadows. The film is about an imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins, who is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.
The third film on the Johnny Depp Walk of Fame on MN+ this month is Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Based on the hit Broadway musical, the movie is the story of the infamous Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd, who sets up in London a barber which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett. For the movie, Depp was bestowed the National Movie Awards, UK in the Best Performance – Actor category.
Another movie is the American science-fiction-thriller, The Astronaut's Wife, written and directed by Rand Ravich and featuring Charlize Theron with Depp, is about how, after an explosion in space and the subsequent two-minute radio-out period, two astronauts return home to their wives. Only – now that they’re back, it’s revealed that they're not the same as they were.
Interestingly, Depp is a movie buff with a somewhat encyclopedic knowledge of older films. He loves watching animated films with his daughter such as Shrek (2001) and Finding Nemo (2003). For movie connoisseurs like Depp, this festival is a can’t-miss event.
