No “Pirates of the Caribbean” or “Beasts”: New Johnny Depp film now on DVD and on Amazon Prime Video
Johnny Depp is known for his crazy roles in Tim Burton films and of course 9MOVIES Captain Jack Sparrow. In “The Professor” he’s a completely normal guy again, but he also turns it up a lot – from today on DVD, Blu-ray and Prime.
Whether in Tim Burton’s colorful and gloomy fairy tales (“Edward Scissorhands”), as a chaotic pirate (“Pirates of the Caribbean”) or as a black magician (“Fantastic Beasts”) – Johnny Depp likes to shoot freely in front of the camera . Preferably, of course, in roles that benefit from it.
While the three-time Oscar-nominated megastar is currently making the headlines primarily with his private life, we want to focus on his work in front of the camera – far away from his blockbuster franchises. As of July 31, 2020, his film “The Professor”, which was shot in 2018, will finally be available on DVD in Germany *. The film has also been included in the subscription to Amazon Prime Video * since July 23.

This is what “The Professor” is all about
When the university professor Richard (Johnny Depp) found out one day of his fatal illness, he was fed up – and turned his life upside down again. From now on he decides to give a damn about social conventions and only do what he feels like doing.
So while he always tells everyone exactly what he is thinking, smoking, drinking and enjoying his life to the full, he finally realizes that he has not been so happy for a long time. But better late than never!
Audience favorite, but not a critic’s favorite
Wayne Roberts’ film was released in many countries in May 2019, over a year ago – time enough to get an idea of how well it is actually being received. Exciting: Critics hardly let a good hair down on the film, while the audience is quite impressed with “The Professor”.
Critics hardly leave a good hair on the film, while the audience is quite taken with “The Professor”.
The tragic comedy failed mercilessly in the trade press, as shown by values such as 37 out of 100 possible points on Metacritic or even only ten (!) Percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The audience ratings on the same portals are, however, significantly higher with 7.8 out of 10 possible points and 76 percent (as of July 31, 2020).
So if you want to see Johnny Depp in a slightly different role again, it might be best to just get a picture of his new film for yourself – that’s pretty easy from now on.
