    What surprises me more is there appears there will be the 2.0 Alice with Depp made. Why?
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    That announcement annoyed me, too. But, the first one made money, so they're running with the franchise. Again, throw a bunch of stuff against the wall and see what sticks. If Lone Ranger or Oz did well, we'd be seeing Part 2 and maybe Part 3 down the line. They took a gamble with Pirates and made crazy money with it. But I don't know if Johnny Depp is as popular as Jack Sparrow. Remember that one studio tried an unnecessary remake of Dark Shadows with Depp and it TANKED.

    Depp is somewhat in the same boat as Jennifer Aniston. Need to be more careful what they pick to star in, they are already beloved, wealthy beyond wealthy...need to be

    Depp draws in a pretty large demographic, agood looking man though a bit eclectic, that hoovers around that half century mark. The man just keeps getting more attractive with age (giggle) ever notice that those deep wrinkles in forehead above nose are poof gone? Botox or some work or both? You look at pictures of him 15 years ago and he looks younger today.
