Tubi exclusive Depp/Heard Trial movie obviously takes Amber’s side, but the trailer is so bad that everyone around the world hates it.
Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial is a low-budget movie that attempts to vindicate Amber Heard after her shocking performance on the stand for defamation in Virginia. However, the Tubi exclusive movie looks to be nothing more than a poorly made student project by Heard fans — everyone hates it.
It’s barely been six months since Johnny Depp won his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard and there is already a feature length movie about it that’s about to drop exclusively to Tubi.
It is clear, from watching the trailer, that Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial sides with Amber Heard, the disgraced and now blacklisted Aquaman actress, and the director does his best job of making her look like a real victim and attempting to vindicate her.
In the teaser, Johnny Depp is depicted as a manipulative addict who only wants to party, while Amber Heard is presented as a victim who lives in the shadow of her A-list star husband.
The trailer demonstrates that this low-budget picture is not even up to the standards of daytime television, which is presumably why it is exclusive to Tubi, the free video-on-demand streaming service.
Andy Signore of the popular YouTube page Popcorned Planet was not impressed with the trailer and called it “exploitative.”
“This is so terrible. It looks so cheap. It looks so bad. They couldn’t even get good actors for this,” Andy said in his reaction video.
He continued: “Oh my God, the lighting. This is so cheap. Like, so bad, it is worse than a soap opera.”
The Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial trailer has 120,000 views on YouTube with almost 4,000 dislikes and only 700 likes on the official Tubi channel.
While the trailer is generally reviled, some say Megan Davis’ portrayal of Amber Heard is superior to the Aquaman actress’ performance on the witness stand during the defamation trial.
“Still better acting than what Amber could manage when testifying,” Hector Rivera commented on YouTube, it has since received almost 300 likes.
This low-budget Tubi exclusive movie will premiere on September 30th, 2022. It stars Mark Hapka as Johnny Depp, Megan Davis as Amber Heard, Melissa Varty as Camille Vasquez, and is directed by newcomer Sara Lohman.
