Public Enemies

\

"Public Enemies" is based on the true story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Johnyy Depp) and the FBI agent on his trail Melvin Purvis. I am so excited to see this upcoming film set to release July 1 so I can drool over Johnnys dapper attire and manuresims as well as all of the costumes, hairstyles, cars and sets! This story takes place during the 1930's Great Depression, and Dillinger and his gang are on the run and can not be stopped. J. Edgar Hoover announces that John Dillinger is America's first Public Enemy Number hence the name of the movie. The film is adapted from Bryan Burrough's book Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34, the crime drama is directed and co-written by "Collateral" helmer Michael Mann.


I bet you couldn't tell he is one of my all time favorite actors. This is not only because he is an amazing actor, really handsome, and a snappy dresser inside and outside of work, but also because my bf met him a few years ago at a private party in North Hollywood (which I envy him for) and they spoke for quite sometime. Johnny Depp Quizzed my bf on all of the movies he told him he liked that Johnny had been in, asking all sorts of questions like who directed each movie, and so on. Luckily my boyfriend has an incredible memory so he knew every single answer to all of his questions, my bf thinks if he hadnt Johnny wouldn't have been so interested in talking with him. All in all my boyfriend walked away from the conversation with an even better opinion of Johnny Depp he said he was extremely friendly, intellectual, interesting and actually interested in what my boyfriend was telling him. Freaking amazing right?

  3. I am so glad it's not another Tim Burton movie! Not that Sweeney Todd wasn't amazing but JD deserves a movie like this.

  9. Love the pics. I'm excited to see the film. I hope Johnny can carry off Dillinger. Dillinger was such a public image and so well known, that I'm not sure if Johnny can do it justice. I hope so!
