Jeanne du Barry Trailer Featuring Maïwenn and Johnny Depp

Fathom Events and Vertical Entertainment have released the official trailer for Jeanne du Barry, the period drama written, directed, and produced by Maïwenn and starring herself and Johnny Depp.

Jeanne du Barry follows Jeanne Vaubernier (Maïwenn), a working-class woman determined to climb the social ladder. She uses her charms to escape her impoverished life.

Her lover, the Comte du Barry (Melvil Poupaud), wishes to present her to King Louis XV (Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean films) and orchestrates a meeting through the influential Duke of Richelieu (Pierre Richard).

The encounter goes far beyond his expectations, for it was love at first sight for the King and Jeanne. Through this ravishing courtesan, the king rediscovers his appetite for life and feels he can no longer live without her. Making Jeanne his last official mistress, scandal erupts as no one at Court will accept a girl from the streets into their rarified world.

The French-language film was written by Maïwenn (DNA, My King), Teddy Lussi-Modeste, and Nicolas Livecchi. The producers include Maïwenn, Pascal Caucheteux, and Gregoire Sorlat.

Fathom and Vertical will release the film on May 2, 2024, in North American theaters. The movie also stars Benjamin Lavernhe and Pascal Greggory.
