American star Johnny Depp apparently regained the luster of fame, as he was seen taking pictures with his fans and leaving his signature on them before the premiere of his movie “John de Barry” at the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, in his first major role since his trial in a defamation case that attracted attention. .
Depp’s fans in the French city on the Riviera held banners reading “Congratulations, Johnny” and “We’re sorry.”
Johnny Depp also received a warm welcome among a group of big stars, during the opening of the festival, the day before yesterday evening.
And in a black suit, hair styled in a ponytail and sunglasses, Johnny Depp regained the rites of passage on the red carpet, after he was banned from filming films by Hollywood studios, since the court series in which he confronted his ex-wife, Amber Heard, on charges of abuse.
The Cannes Festival did not break its promise as usual every year, and its opening witnessed the emergence of a large group of stars, such as: Mads Mikkelsen and John K. Riley and Helen Mirren, who dyed her hair blue.
Johnny Depp plays the role of the French King Louis XV in the movie “John de Paris”. The film is directed by Maywen Le Pescot, better known as Maywen, in which she also plays Du Barry, a concubine of the French king who climbs the social ladder and becomes his favourite.
Critics highlighted the attractiveness of the film, which received funding from the Red Sea Film Festival Foundation in Saudi Arabia, within a total budget estimated at $22.4 million, but said the film lacked rhythm.
The French-language film, which has yet to be released in North America, marks the beginning of a comeback for “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Depp, who has appeared in a handful of films and television since his trial ended in June.
An American jury awarded Depp an almost complete victory in the defamation battle he fought with his ex-wife, actress Amber Hurd, and awarded him compensation of more than $ 10 million.
Among the stars of the opening ceremony at the Cannes Festival: Helen Mirren, with a sky-blue look from dress to hair, Chinese actress Gong Li, in a black dress with a round neck, and Mads Mikkelsen, who participates in the new “Indiana Jones” movie, the most prominent work presented at the festival.
The festival paid tribute to one of the brightest names in Hollywood, actor Michael Douglas, who received an honorary Palme d’Or from the hands of star Uma Thurman, who described him as “an eternal star and a brilliant artist.”
After that, the opening of this 76th edition of the festival was officially announced by Catherine Deneuve, along with her daughter Chiara Mastroianni, after reciting a poem in support of the Ukrainians.
