One of several in a series of posters promoting the Tim Burton Expo at La Cinematheque Francaise features Johnny Depp as Barnabas in the “Dark Shadows” movie. The official expo description:
The Tim Burton event at La Cinémathèque française is not only a wonderful opportunity to see all of his films (including very limited-distribution short films) but also, thanks to the major exhibition designed by the New York MoMA in 2009 and shown here this spring, an opportunity to discover Burton’s talents as a draftsman, painter, video director, photographer and inventor of colorful, amazing sculptures.

Tribute Entertainment is organizing a “Rum Diary” DVD/Blu-Ray giveaway (thanks to Soriyya for informing us). Unfortunately this is only for people in Canada, so if you live over there you can take a look and try win a free copy here.
I’ve been a terrible webmaster lately and I’m really sorry. I just wasn’t feel like working on the site. Although Johnny is my all-time favorite actor I sometimes don’t feel motivated enough to update the site. Well luckily Johnny wasn’t too busy while I wasn’t around so it was easy to catch up with the latest photos for the gallery.
The only public appearance during this time was in 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards where Johnny presenting Hugo. Other than that there were some new stills of “Dark Shadows”. Along with these I uploaded an old photoshoot of Johnny back in 1998 and decided to work a bit on the photoshoots section of our gallery. The previous webmisses Annie and Luciana did an amazing job collection and uploading photoshoots of Johnny but I think it would be better to organize them by date so I’ll slowly work on it along with the other updates.
For now enjoy the new pics in our gallery (credit our partner depplovers for some photos of Johnny at Golden Globe Awards):

Johnny Depp has topped a new poll of celebrities fans would most like to spend the holidays with.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star has been named the dream Christmas dinner guest by more than 1,000 movie fans in a poll conducted by Britain’s Sky Movies HD Christmas Channel.
The Hollywood hunk saw off competition from fellow actors including George Clooney and Tom Hanks, who finished second and third respectively.
Love Actually star Emma Thompson was the top British nominee and highest-ranked actress at number four, while Friends favourite Jennifer Aniston was a popular pick in fifth place.
Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies, says, “The guys led at the top of the league and while Hanks and Clooney would both undoubtedly light up anyone’s Christmas, Depp was the clear winner for U.K. film fans. He is this year’s ultimate Christmas cracker.”
The 10 most popular festive guests are as follows:
1. Johnny Depp
2. George Clooney
3. Tom Hanks
4. Emma Thompson
5. Jennifer Aniston
6. Julia Roberts
7. Simon Pegg
8. Hugh Grant
9. Cameron Diaz
10. Jim Carrey.
Next year, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will bring The Rum Diary to Blu-ray. Directed by Bruce Robinson (Withnail and I), this adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s early novel stars Johnny Depp (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) as Paul Kemp, a journalist working for a newspaper in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
While Kemp is initially content with plunging into San Juan’s debauched underworld for his own amusement, he finds his moral compass tested when he becomes involved with a corrupt American businessman (Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight) and his beautiful young fiancée (Amber Heard, Drive Angry).
Sony’s Blu-ray presents the film in its 1.85:1 aspect ratio with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc also contains a number of bonus features, including:
