The official trailer for the film Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial has been released. The film comes from Tubi, a free streaming service, and aims to dramatize the trial and the preceding events including the relationship between the two.
The trailer appears to have an energy that is the same as the Hunter Biden movie called ‘My Son Hunter’ in that one is not sure whether it is a parody or it is meant to be serious. It is not the production quality, which is fine, but the tone that is intentionally or unintentionally satirical.
The actor Mark Hapka as Depp and Megan Davis as Heard, are almost hired for their resemblance to the subjects. Sara Lohman, known for ‘Good Satan’, ‘Grace and Frankie, and ‘The Blind Side, is the director. The film seems interesting and deserves a watch. It will premiere on Tubi, and it will be free and will cost just your time. Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial begins streaming on September 30.
Depp was the winner of the trial, which was held at Fairfax, Virginia. He had Heard of an op-ed she had penned for the Washington Post title of the was”I spoke up against sexual violence and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change”. She had not named him, Depp filed for defamation anyway. Watch the trailer below:
The trial ended with Depp being awarded $10 million in damages. Heard was awarded $2 million in damages and for being “defamed” by Heard’s lawyer who had accused her of creating a hoax. IMDB
