All-Star Cast Leads A Hilarious Caper Comedy When Mortdecai Arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD This May
SANTA MONICA, CA (March 23, 2015) – The witty caper comedy, Mortdecai, arrives on Digital HD May 5 and on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) May 12 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. In the vein of Austin Powers and Inspector Clouseau before him, Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean franchise) leads an impressive ensemble cast on an adventure through the world of black market art dealers to find a missing painting.

After a priceless painting is stolen, shady art dealer Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) is recruited by an old rival (McGregor) to get it back. Mortdecai questions his rival’s intentions, but takes the job for the money and to keep his high-maintenance wife (Paltrow) happy. With the help of his manservant (Bettany), Mortdecai must face terrorists, angry Russians and more in a hilarious globe-trotting chase.
