The World premiere of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is happening right now at
UGC Ciné Cité Bercy
along with participating cinemas throughout France. The main cast attended the red carpet, but as most of us expected, Johnny couldn’t go. We all know he has a really busy schedule and the last thing we know is that he is in the middle of a filming somewhere in Morocco for the upcoming “Waiting for the Barbarians” movie.
This month, there’s 2 premieres schedule to happen: Next tuesday (November 13) at
Leicester Square in London, and in Tokyo in November 21. Some months ago, the USA premiere was set to happen in New York, today (November 8), later when the official dates were announced the NY date became
absent, and now, for unknown reasons, it’s said that the premiere was cancelled.
As the main character in this movie, many fans missed Johnny’s presence today, but we do hope he goes to the London Premiere.
David Yates already has the script for Fantastic Beasts 3 in hands. J.K. Rowling sent to him few weeks ago.
To celebrate the 7 DAYS left to “Fantastic
Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” première in France, I present my new
creation: The Wanted Poster for Gellert Grindelwald in French. This was based on
the poster shown in the November issue of Total Film Magazine, where you can see the investigation wall of the French Ministry of Magic. I couldn’t find the right photo, so I added
the promotional photo instead. Oh, If you missed, I already made a similar poster in English. Check it HERE.
> Here is the translation for what is written on
of Magic of France & International Magic Police.
Wanted for conspiracy against the secret
of the magical world.
Fugitive: Gellert Grindelwald.
This powerful wizard is sought after and extremely dangerous.
Do not approach it!
Recompense: 5000 Bz
If you have any information, advise the forces from the International Magic
AND SAVE THE DATE! “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” premieres in Paris next week (November 8) at UGC Ciné Cité Bercy, along with participating cinemas throughout France, with the cast (Johnny is still unconfirmed) and J.K. Rowling attending the red carpet that will be livestreamed worldwide.
“ – Do you speak English? – Asks Gabrielle – Oui.” – Answers the Unknown”
14 years ago, today (August 25), the French movie “Ils Se Marièrent Et Eurent Beaucoup d’Enfants” known as “(…And They Lived) Happily Ever After”
in English, premièred in France. 6
months after the release, in 2005, the movie was screened in New York and Los Angeles
in selected theaters, but the movie became more popular after its release in
DVD in October 2005, now under the title “Happily Ever After” and with optional
English subtitles. The movie got more attention for Johnny’s special cameo in two
scenes, one of then, speaking in French.
> Synopsis:“Happily Ever After” gives
exuberant new life to the age old dilemmas surrounding love, marriage, and
fidelity. Uncovering a web of marital deceit and sexual combustion, the movie
connects three men in their forties who wonders about their lives with friends,
spouses and lovers. Vincent (Yvan Attal) lives
with Gabrielle (Charlotte Gainsbourg), and
Georges (Alain Chabat) with Nathalie (Emmanuelle Seigner), and both envy the freedom of
their friend Fred (Alain Cohen), a bachelor who
goes out with beautiful girls occasionally. But behind these relationships
everyone has a “hidden” feeling. Fred is hoping for a long-term
relationship to finally give meaning to his life, Georges has no courage
to break up with the abrasive feminist Nathalie, and Vincent
is having a secret affair with another woman (Angie
David) not knowing his wife already knows
and begins to consider an affair of her own.
* Johnny character has no name, but he is popular named “L’inconnu” or
“The Unknown” between fans. Also, his name doesn’t appear in the credits, although,
before the credits roll in, there’s a special “credit”, written: “Avec la participation exceptionnelle de
Johnny Depp”, or in English: “With
the exceptional participation of Johnny Depp”.
* Busy Agenda: Johnny’s scenes were shot in Paris, France, in October,
right after he had finished the movie “Secret Window”. He is even wearing the
exactly same glasses!
* Johnny takes 18 minutes to appear for the first time. The second scene
happens more than an hour later in the end of the movie speaking in French. In 1h40min of movie,
Johnny’s appears for a little bit more than 7 minutes.
* Yvan Attal, the writer, director of the movie, and also the actor, told about his experience
– “I wanted to write more because I really
like him as an actor, but I felt ridiculous to give him these two ‘ridiculous’
– “When I
wrote the script I thought… ‘Who will be this guy for whom all women will
fall?’ And… Right away, I thought about him.”
I wrote the scene (at the Virgin Mega Store), suddenly I realized who can do
this, so I talked to his assistants. I told them very simply. I said ‘Here’s my
first film. Here’s the script. It’s a very small part, so I give you everything
and I hope he says yes, and I hope I can meet him to explain what I can do’. And
the assistant rang me back and said, ‘You know, Johnny is in the south of
France now and you can go and meet him’. And I know he likes Charlotte as an
actress too so we went there and we met. We talked about a lot of things and
about the subject of the film. He’s my age, roughly, and he has a girl and
children like me and I thought I’d be there for 10 minutes, but we spent the
night talking together.” Suddenly, I wanted to write more, because I like him
as an actor, so I wrote the scene where they get into an elevator, and the
elevator goes, and they are going to heaven, and when I wrote the ‘going into
heaven’, again it was just a way to finish, to write the feeling of it… This
gave me the idea to shoot it that way, so it was very funny to shoot.”
Happily Ever After (Ils Se Marièrent et Eurent Beaucoup d’Enfants)
Gabrielle (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and her cute and dreamy encounter with an Unknown Man (Johnny Depp)
in a Paris record store, while “Creep” by
Radiohead is playing. This is one of the two scenes where Johnny appears in the 2004 movie “Ils Se Marièrent et Eurent Beaucoup
d’Enfants” (Happily Ever After).
How many fans already have
dreamed (or still dreams) with an encounter like this…
“I wish I was special… You’re so f*ckin’ special…”
