The court’s order on this defamation case awarded $10 million to Johnny Depp. This was the compensation for the damages made by Amber Heard to Johnny Depp’s reputation. Also, there was a $2 million compensation money awarded to Amber Heard for her troubles. No matter what the results have been, people are finding the trailer of the movie “unintentionally hilarious”. The underlying story also involves serious allegations of sexual violence too. The screenplay is by a comedy writer, Guy Nicolucci, whose background mostly revolves around late-night shows and the roasts on Comedy Central. This is the reason why it seems like there is a borderline incomprehensibility about the movie, powered by the celebrity media circus.
