Many current players are still legend, beyond the terrible decisions that make cinematically, these are usually established talents, which in the past attracted hordes of spectators to the boards, but that currently cannot be connected with young audiences (examples: Robert De Niro, Bruce Willis).
The current movie buff possibly grew up watching movies starring Johnny Depp who, as well as Tom Cruise, should have a relatively successful career in cinema. But it is not so. The question is: has ceased to be Johnny Depp a box-office attraction?
This question arises mainly after the huge failure that was his most recent film, Transcendence, that despite looking quite attractive for the public fan of the science fiction and adventure that he made Oblivion a success, hardly had he managed to collect one-sixth of its budget of $ 100 million. Even though this last decision inadequate, considering that it was the debut of a director of photography, it is impossible to think that, given what is supposed to be a big star like Depp in the lead role, he has raised even less than the recognized failure of science fiction Stealth.
