Hey all you Johnny Depp fans, his new movie, Public Enemies, is set for a July 1 release date, but you can catch special advanced screenings in Oshkosh, Madison and Milwaukee on June 30th.

Directed by Michael Mann, Public Enemies tells the story of notorious gangster John DillinDillmansBayResortger (Depp), his girlriend Billie Frechette (Marion Cotillard) and the FBI agent (Melvin Purvis played by Christian Bale) who sets out to stop him.  As we’ve shared in a previous post, Wisconsin played host to many depression-era gangsters including Dillinger, Capone, Baby Face Nelson and more.  With a great deal of the filming taking place here in Wisconsin in actual locales like Little Bohemia Lodge in Manitowish Waters and Dillman’s Bay Resort in Lac du Flambeau, Public Enemies was the lastest big budget Hollywood film to shoot in the state.

Whether you’re a diehard Depp fan or a movie “extra” curious to see if you made it into the film, check out the Film Wisconsin site to see planned events for this “Special Advance Screening” of Public Enemies.

Can’t wait until the 30th?  Click on over and check out the trailers here & here.
