Johnny Depp is Box Office Poison: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Johnny Depp`s " Transcendence" bombed last night, taking in just $11.5 million. That`s a disaster of Biblical proportions for a $150 million flick.


Depp has enjoyed a remarkably successful career; his forte is playing quirky but endearing characters. I can`t imagine anyone but Depp starring in "Edward Scissorhands" or " Ed Wood."

But Depp`s box office magic has been snuffed out by his decision to star in a series of duds: Dark Shadows, Lone Ranger, and Transcendence.

Depp is now box office poison, and even if he films another Pirates of the Caribbean movie it`s guaranteed to bomb. Depp`s Captain Jack Sparrow character is played out, he`s squeezed out all the money he can from his Keith Richards on crack impersonation.

Depp faces a critical juncture in his life, his options are limited: Retire, commit hari kari, star in a reality series or become a gigolo.

My advice for Depp? Stock up on condoms.
