All Of Johnny Depp movies


Director: Tim Burton. Writer: Linda Woolverton. Starring Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham-Carter.

Although the young Mia Wasikowska stars in this spectacular film directed by Tim Burton, all eyes are on Johnny Depp’s appearance as the Mad Hatters. Depp’s hatter, with his bright orange hair and big hat, is a walking embodiment of Tim Burton’s films.

However, Depp takes the time to show Hatter’s tender side – in his scenes with Alice, he bonds with her, perhaps recognizing that they are both outsiders in this strange wonderland. Depp’s performance earned him his tenth Golden Globe nomination.


Director: Michael Mann. Writers: Ronan Bennett, Ann Biderman, Michael Mann. Starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard.

Legendary mobster John Dillinger gives Depp a large canvas to play in Michael Mann’s crime saga, which depicts the final years of the life of bank robber extraordinaire Dillinger and his stalker, FBI agent Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale).

Depp’s role as the Dillinger-rock star, a man not beholden to any authority, was an image that appealed to a public devastated by the effects of the Great Depression. The way he carries himself as Dillinger and the fact that he’s always on the run, Deep’s performance demands more physicality than he provides.

3. INTO THE WOODS (2014)

Director: Rob Marshall. Writer: James Lapine, based on music by Stephen Sondheim, James Lapine. Starring Emily Blunt, James Corden, Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp.

In his second Stephen Sondheim musical, Depp plays the plum role of The Big Bad Wolf, who uses all his powers of charm to lure Little Red Riding Hood to her grandmother’s house so the wolf can have a tasty meal. But on Wolf’s signature song, “Hello, Little Girl,” Depp does it with a distinctly sexier tone that turns the creepy meter up to 11, given Little Red Riding Hood’s young age. But it gives “Into the Woods” a grown-up vibe that helps the film distinguish itself from the usual Disney kiddie fare.


Director: Tim Burton. Writer: John August, based on Roald Dahl’s novel. Starring Johnny Depp, Freddie Highmore, Helena Bonham-Carter.

This Tim Burton version of the beloved Roald Dahl children’s book is much darker than the 1971 Gene Wilder “Willy Wonka” classic and therefore closer to the tone of Dahl’s book. If you’re looking for a dark Willy Wonka, Depp is your man.

Yes, his candy mogul is flamboyantly larger than life, but Depp explains that his Willy Wonka has hurt in his past, and being the lovable candy man is how he tries to cope. For his performance as Willy, Depp received his sixth Best Actor nomination from the Golden Globes.

5. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Series (2003, 2006, 2007, 2011, 2017)

Depp struck lightning in a bottle with his decision to model his pirate Jack Sparrow. Depp’s bold approach reportedly angered some Disney executives during daily press briefings, with some wanting to shut down the production altogether, convinced it would fail.

It certainly flopped, and Depp’s now-famous pirate is now the centerpiece of a five-film franchise. Depp won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor for “The Curse of the Black Pearl,” the first “Pirates,” and received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for “Dead Man’s Chest” in 2006’s Pirates 2. Depp received his seventh Golden Globe nomination.


Director: Mike Newell. Writer: Paul Attanasio. Starring Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Michael Madsen.

With several stellar films under his belt, Johnny Depp makes a sudden change of image in this true story of young FBI agent Joseph Pistone (Depp) going undercover as “The Jewel Man” Donnie Brasco. Donnie soon becomes deeply embedded in the Bonanno crime family and becomes the protégé of aging mobster Lefty Ruggiero (Al Pacino).

“Donnie Brasco” did a lot for Depp’s burgeoning career — it not only proved that Depp, known mainly for arthouse films, could work in a genre film but also answered questions about whether he could continue with bigger films. Guys, few people are bigger than Al Pacino.

7. Waiting for the Barbarians (2019)

The action drama was directed by Ciro Guerra in his English language directorial debut. The film is based on the 1980 novel of the same name written by J. M. Coetzee.
