Public Enemies shows a welcome lack of Pirates or Goth influences

In a welcome change of pace for a Johnny Depp film, Michael Mann's new gangster pic Public Enemies appears to be free of both pirates and freakish goth-styled weirdos. For a while there, I was beginning to think that if a script didn't have feature a character that would make you change seats on public transit if he sat next to you, Depp wouldn't do it. However, following his trend, he will base Dillinger on a member of the Rolling Stones, but he's using Bill Wyman this time, so it just looks like he's playing a normal guy who likes banging chicks half his age.

I love his poster, too, which subtly comments on the fact that Dillinger was, shall we say, packing a pistol with a verrrrrrry large barrel. Get it? Eh? Do ya?

The trailer's below, and it looks great.
