* The trouble behind “London Fields” and its NEW 2019 version…
Considered one of the “Worst Films of 2018”, “London Fields” was recorded
between September and October 2013, screened one time for press and industry at
2015 Toronto International Film Festival, it was cancelled on the festival due a
legal dispute between the director and producer for fraud, failing to pay him,
and taking away the final cut. Later a second lawsuit was filed by the
producers suing Ms. Heard for $10 million claiming that she and the director
Mathew Cullen made unauthorized changes to the film’s script and failed to
finish the work. Later again, she counter-sued claiming the producers violated a
nudity clause in her contract, and finally in September 2018, the producers
reached a settlement with her. But meanwhile the damage was done: They lost
time, money and almost lost the whole movie.
Due to this mess, it took 4 YEARS to the movie be finally screened for the
first time, last year, in Russia. And to make things worse, it suffered A LOT with
the negative critics. The movie was later re-edited and screened in 613 theaters
around the USA in the middle of Johnny and Ms. Heard court battle, which again
contributed for the movie being a flop and considered “the second worst US box
office opening for a wide release film of all time”.
ONE MORE YEAR passed by, and this year (2019) the movie was RE-RE-EDITED and RE-RE-RELEASED, being
now screened in selected theaters in Europe. Named “London Fields: The Director’s
Cut”, the movie is slightly longer with 12 minutes, has a new cut edition, new
colorization, new soundtrack, and new and alternate scenes. Unfortunately,
Johnny’s scenes on the “Director’s Cut” seems to be fewer than on its previous version
(The Producer’s Cut). One of them is his character introduction: While Chick Purchase
on the “Producer’s Cut” is introduced right on the 7th minute, on
the “Director’s Cut” he takes almost 40 minutes to be introduced.
The new scene above is from the “Director’s Cut” version and meanwhile, you can check all the Johnny’s scenes on the “Producers/Theatrical Version” on my two previously posts:
Finally after 9 years, one of Johnny’s
tattoos can be admired in a better photo. This one,
on Johnny’s left
calf, is a tribute to his late friend Hunter S. Thompson. It has one of
in a typewriter font, the gonzo fist and blade logo, along with Hunter’s birth and
death years (1937 – 20005) and his initials: H.S.T.
The tattoo could be first seen in June 20,
2010, Father’s Day in the USA. Johnny was with his children Jack and Lily-Rose
boarding on a helicopter in Hawaii to celebrate the day. During that time there
was only the logo
with no lettering, which was added sometime later.
The final design, as seen today, could be “better” seen in August 17, 2011,
when Johnny was photographed during a trip with Vanessa Paradis and their
children on their yacht in France,
