In case you have been living in a cave these past five months, you might have missed one of the biggest trials in the world. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were locked in a huge legal battle that saw Depp suing his ex-wife for defamation, after her op-ed piece named him as her abuser, leaving Depp to be fired from two big franchises. The result was a wild six-week process that saw plenty of both their private lives showcased to the world, and that trial has now been turned into a movie, and we have the first trailer.

This new Tubi-produced movie is titled Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial, and from the above trailer, we would assume that this might not be the kind of film that is going to get any kind of award recognition. Still, if you like hacky story retellings, then this might be the right movie for you. Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are actors, but the actors that are portraying them seem to be going a bit hard on the melodrama.

Also, if you happen to not have paid much attention to the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard drama that was started way back in 2019, this dramatic retelling might be something for you to check out. Not to offer up spoilers, but Depp would go on to win his defamation trial, leaving Heard to essentially be shunned by everyone. However, she is said to be releasing a tell-all book that will detail more about her allegations that Depp was highly abusive.

The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard drama lasted for months after the trial had concluded, with Heard’s legal team even seeking an appeal for the decision handed down by the jury and court, though she would lose that appeal. While everyone was hoping that this situation would be behind them, it is now being highly dramatized in the new Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial. There are also rumors that a docuseries is also being worked on that will detail the real-life trial.

So, whether you want to check out a low-quality movie about the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, or you want to wait for a documentary about what all transpired, it appears that both options will be available. However, the Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial movie is now streaming on Tubi, which showcases movies and television shows for free with ads. Quite honestly, some people enjoy watching these types of movies and we don’t blame you for it.

The above Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial movie looks quite ridiculous, but sometimes we all need time to unplug our brains and watch something outlandish, and this movie looks to be just that. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard did have a highly publicized trial, as the whole thing was also live streamed for the world to see, so it’s only natural that a made-for-TV movie was going to follow. Check out the trailer above and see if it’s worth your time to see this melodramatic take on the biggest trial of 2022.
