Stop me if youíve heard this one before: Johnny Depp released a new movie, and American audiences placed it on the "Pay No Mind" list.

Deppís latest film, Transcendence, banked a meager $11.1 million over the weekend, good for a fourth-place opening on the box office charts. Deppís new film couldnít beat Captain America: The Winter Soldier in its THIRD week. It couldnít even top Greg Kinnearís sappy Heaven Is For Real (which is dreadful).

We got up this morning and crunched the numbers. This isnít a blip for Depp. Itís the new norm. American audiences are largely tuning out Deppís movies, from The Lone Ranger to The Tourist. Even his last stint in the Jack Sparrow role was a significant drop from previous Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

So this morning, in the Monday Movie Memo, we break down the state of Johnny Deppís movie-star career. Is it in a rut? Completely over? Give a listen, then weigh in with your own thoughts below.
