‘City of Lies’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Investigates the Murder of The Notorious B.I.G.

Saban Films has released an official teaser trailer for City of Lies. Based on the book Labyrinth by Randall Sullivan, the upcoming film sees Johnny Depp playing a retired detective investigating the murder of The Notorious B.I.G.

This feels like a nice, small crime-thriller. I’ve always dug Depp’s acting and I don’t mind Forest Whitaker‘s either. The fact that it is also a true story adds just a little bit more icing to the cake. I’ll definitely be watching this.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on the book, Labyrinth, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Randall Sullivan, this compelling crime-thriller follows the investigation into the infamous murder of iconic rap artist Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G. Oscar nominee Johnny Depp stars as determined LAPD detective Russell Poole, who spent nearly 20 years trying to solve the murder, and Oscar and Primetime Emmy winner Forest Whitaker as Jack Jackson, a journalist who teams up with Poole in search of the elusive truth. Together they explore why the case remains cold — and why a secret division of the LAPD is seemingly set on keeping it that way.

City of Lies hits theaters March 19, 2021 and on VOD and digital platforms April 9, 2021.
