Pretty new layout! Tell me what you think! I tried to make it easy to navigate, also added the upcoming movies to right —> along with the release date and websites for more reference
As for the gallery, or should I say, NEW gallery? Click here to view it. There are many NEW pictures, or, high quality versions from older versions, and it’s impossible for me to list everything here. I will list here the big sections and a small explanation in case you’re lost:
Awards and Film Festivals: any movie award, music award and festival that Johnny attented will be here Interviews & TV Shows: screen caps from TV Shows Magazine Scans: this section will have scans, photoshoots and promotional pictures, magazines separated by A-L and M-Z and Photoshoots by number. Also, miscelaneous sets like Magazine Covers, etc – many HQ versions in the Photoshoots section, you should check Movies: obviously, movies, this contains screen caps, promotional stills/pictures and dvd extras. I’m looking for screen cappers! If you have a DVD that we don’t have screen caps yet, and you can make some, e-mail me, please! Premieres & Press Conferences: from movie openings and talking to the press about his movies Candids & Misc. Pictures: candids, misc sets like P and Women (please note that we do not have stalkerazzi pictures, so you won’t find any picture of Johnny that was taken without his consent)
See? Not so difficult! Any question, post here!
If you have registered before, you’re gonna have to re-register as I’m not able to retrieve the old member list, ok?
As for the fanart on the old gallery, I will download everything and re-add to the new gallery, but, if you’re have submited fanart, please, register and send a contact form, so I can set you and allow you to upload again.
I’m looking to build the biggest Johnny gallery on the net (I’m pretty sure it’s the biggest already), and I can’t do it by myself, I need YOUR help. If you can contribute with scans, pictures, screen caps that we don’t have yet, please, e-mail me, okay?
I haven’t had time to test everything, it’s past 4am and I gotta work tomorrow, please report any errors or weird things, ok?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (July 15)
•What’s popping? Director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp join forces for the fourth time with this trippy take on author Roald Dahl’s deliciously subversive fable, which also inspired the 1971 Gen-X fave Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
As before, good-natured Charlie Bucket (12-year-old Freddie Highmore, who reunites with his Finding Neverland co-star Depp) and his Grandpa Joe (David Kelly of Waking Ned Devine) win a chance to tour Wonka’s wondrous candy factory.
They are joined by four gluttonous children who suffer sticky comeuppances, thanks to the wily Mr. Wonka. Willy’s dad, Wilbur (Christopher Lee) — a new character — shows up in flashbacks.
•A few more kernels. The pop-art trailer suggests a psychedelic sugar rush is in store. But those salivating to hear The Candy Man, forget about it. “The only music is when the Oompa Loompas (the factory’s tiny handymen) sing chants after each child encounters problems,” says producer Richard Zanuck. As for the 1971 version, he says, “this not a remake. This is Tim’s version of Dahl’s book.”
Burton is doing his best to bring Dahl’s semi-sweet fantasy to high-caloric life, building a candy land on 17 soundstages at London’s Pinewood Studio. Besides a chocolate river with an 80-foot waterfall, “there’s a nut room with 200 squirrels at work,” Zanuck says. Yes, actual rodents. “From birth, we sent them to training school for six months.”
As for Depp’s interpretation of the mysterious Wonka as a Carnaby Street mod hatter with a propensity for saying, “Let’s boogie,” Zanuck notes, “All I can say is that it lives up to his sense of the bizarre.”
•Bonus treat. In the first movie, the Oompa Loompas were played by dwarfs. Now they are all played by the same 42-inch-tall actor, Dee Roy, who is shrunk via camera tricks to a mere 30 inches.
•Yum factor. Johnny Depp and chocolate outdoes peanut butter and chocolate any day.
Also, I havent been replaying to my e-mails, so, please don’t e-mail me again ok? I’ve been busy and I’m trying to post news as they happen. And also, please, DON’T apply for affiliation, I’m not accepting at the moment and I will not reply to any request.
Hey guys! I’ve upgraded the script I use to post news, it seems like everything is working, but let me know if you see any error.
Now, when you post a comment and it goes under moderation it should show your entry with a “Waiting for moderation” (because of spam – which IS a lot, I had to set many words to automatic moderation and as result many people would post 3, 4 times thinking that they comment didn’t work)
In pictorial news, I’m almost finished organizing the pictures, and I should start uploading the new gallery very soon
After that I will try updating the movies section and make it as complete as possible!
The BBC reports that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequels plan to portray Dominica’s Carib Indians as cannibals. Shooting on the films is expected to take place this April in the area, with hundreds of Dominicans applying to be extras in the movie.
Carib Chief Charles Williams said talks with Disney’s producers revealed there was “a strong element of cannibalism in the script which cannot be removed”.
The Caribs have long denied their ancestors practiced cannibalism. “Our ancestors stood up against early European conquerors and because they stood up…we were labelled savages and cannibals up to today,” said Williams.
About 3,000 Caribs live on the island of Dominica.
Hey guys! I’m slow, I know! But, I did manage to add some goodies to the gallery today: Misc. photoshoot #52 (thanks Mariana!), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Promotional Pictures, 2005 Golden Globes (thanks, again, to Mariana), 2005 SAG (thanks Roberta), Rolling Stone February 2005 (finally, I know!!)
I have more things to add, tons of emails to reply (probably still have stuff from november or so, I suck replying e-mails!) but I decided to re-organize the gallery and install a new script before I add everything I have new.
Unfortunatelly, Johnny didn’t win I’ve posted a couple of pictures from the red carpet:
Johnny is nominated for best Actor in this year’s Academy Awards!! He has to win this year!
Mariana has sent scans of the next Premiere magazine:
The Corpse Bride Trailer is up. Click here to check it out! It’s hilarious, I can’t wait to see it!
As you guys might know already, Johnny didn’t win the Golden Globe last sunday. Oh well. I still think he is the best and I know most of you do the same and that has got to count for something right?
I will post pictures tomorrow!
I found this sweet article from timesonline.co.uk
PIRATES OF the Caribbean star Johnny Depp lives in a farmhouse “near St Tropez” with Vanessa Paradis and their two children.
“I was very lucky that something steered me to France. I came here in 1998 and immediately felt at home, really at home. It is still possible to live a simple life in France. You can go to the market, walk about, and buy your fruit and vegetables from the locals — just as they did here 100 and 200 years ago.
“I can walk to a tiny village from my home, sit in a cafe, smoke a cigarette with my coffee and be left alone. That’s what I enjoy — the cafe and, of course, the culture. We have moments when our kids are playing, and we look at one another and think, ‘Thank God we escaped.’ And I add, ‘Thank God for France.’ It doesn’t get any better than this.”
