Minamata, a Johnny Depp film, is getting a lot of stream now ...

Though Johnny Depp is a well-known actor, he hasn''t been drawing interest through his work as of late. He was embroiled in a legal battle with his ex-wife Amber Heard just a few weeks ago, and the verdict was narrowed mostly in Depp''s favor. Now, his last big film, Minamata, has officially set a streaming release date. It''s set to arrive sooner than you may expect.

Minamata, which is distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films, will be broadcast at Hulu (opens in a new tab) per the streamer, and the film will be available to subscribers starting on July 8th. It may not be wild to speculate that a significant number of people might be interested in seeing it out, considering that its early motion pictures featuring the Pirates of the Caribbean star have been dropped in some time. At this point, this notion of its distribution is purely speculation.

Johnny Depp''s work, directed by Aileen Mioko Smith and W. Eugene Smith, is based on the same name. Depp is the late Smith, a reclusive American photojournalist who traveled to Japan in the 70s to investigate the emergence of a mysterious illness. From there, Smith engages in a confrontation with the corporate entity who caused the tragedy and attempts to make the perpetrators known to the world. In the process of doing so, he becomes something of his own.

The journey to the big screen ended with a difficult one-sided affair. The film, which received positive early reviews, was originally scheduled to go public in February 2021, although it was later postponed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. At the time, many believed it bombed due to the modest amount of money it took in the weekend. Eventually, the film was released to theaters this past February and ended its run with a $1.7 million.

As the Andrew Levitas-directed drama progresses, Johnny Depp will travel to court for an assault-related case. He is being sued by the location manager from his 2018 film City of Lies, who claims that Depp punched him twice. Despite their victory, the lawyer for this latest defendant has spoken out and isn''t too phased by the verdict.

Johnny Depp will play Louis XV in a film set by Maiwenn, a French filmmaker, and reportedly planned a concert with Jeff Beck. Time will tell how these two projects will go, but more immediately, additional reactions to Minamata should be brought to you early next month.

If you want to see Minamata when it goes on Netflix on July 8th, please make sure that you have a Hulu subscription.
