A couple of Johnny Depp video clips recently popped up in my recommended section on Youtube. I’m not sure why they are recommended to me but these videos show another side to the actor known for “weird” roles. The videos aren’t shocking or salacious. In the video, Johnny Depp is at a children’s hospital fully dressed up as Pirates of The Caribbean’s Jack Sparrow and greeting sick kids.
Back in May 2016, ex-wife Amber Heard made domestic abuse claims against Depp. At the time, according to Los Angeles Police Dept., officers responded to the call and found no evidence of any crime. Still, the unproven accusations remained a cloud of controversy over Depp.
Upgrade (2018) is a cyberpunk thriller that paints a murky outlook on technologically enhanced humans in the near-future. Self-driving vehicles, VR technology and artificial intelligence are already a reality today. Just imagine how much further we will have developed and integrated these technologies in the years to come. The believable aspects to the futuristic setting in Upgrade adds to the disconcerting anxiousness to what could be in store for the next stage in humanity.
