Lionsgate's 'Mortdecai' to be Released Early

Variety is reporting that Lionsgate's upcoming feature Mortdecai starring Johnny Depp will be released on January 23, 2015, two weeks earlier than originally slated.

Depp plays debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai, who must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

The new date moves Mortdecai out of what has become a crowded weekend, with potential competition from Jupiter Ascending, Seventh Son and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

Prime Focus World is proud to have provided 105 VFX shots for this action comedy directed by David Koepp.
