BREAKING NEWS–Johnny Depp arrives for Disneyland premiere of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END
The photo at left shows Johnny Depp arriving on the red carpet at the world premiere of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END at Disneyland on Saturday night March 19th. Johnny wore a white shirt, dark vest, blue jeans, his favorite boots, blue sunglasses, and a full complement of necklaces, bracelets, and danglies. When it turned a bit cool, he donned a familiar leather jacket. Thousands of fans lined up in the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the park to open so they could rush to their spots along Main Street, where they waited for more than twelve hours for the chance to see and applaud the PIRATES crew.
Here’s Reuters’ description of the event: “Looking every bit the part of the Hollywood star he is, actor Johnny Depp brought cheers from his adoring fans as he arrived Saturday night,” while the Hollywood Reporter noted, “Pandemonium reigned wherever the actor was sighted.” Commenting on the “sea of faces” bordering every possible inch of space along the red carpet, Buena Vista Pictures Group president Oren Aviv called the premiere turnout–more than 15,000 fans of all ages–“amazing. You really get to see the power that movies can have when you look around and you see that these lives are affected by what were initially just words on a page.”
