INTERNATIONAL gangs, an aristocratic rogue and the theft of a priceless piece of artwork feature as an all-star cast appear in Mortdecai.
When a historic painting is stolen after being sent to be cleaned, Inspector Martland (Ewen McGregor) calls in Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) to fight dirty and find out who is responsible.
Promising to hunt down the thieves for queen and country – and reasonable expenses – debonair Mortdecai and his manservant Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany) begin a journey that will take them all over the world.
Angry Russians, an international terrorist and even Nazi gold feature during their crazy travels but will the unpredictable aristocrat get to the bottom of this arty mystery or will he get distracted from his mission?
Gwyneth Paltrow stars as Mortdecai’s domineering wife in this camp comedy.
