Lionsgate are ramping up the promotion work for next January’s Johnny Depp-starrer Mortdecai, with the latest taster being a series of character posters.

Riffing on the sumptuous moustache sported by Depp’s titular character, the series features Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Depp himself, in similar poses.

In case this one has passed you by, here’s the official synopsis:

Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumoured to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Directed by David Koepp, Mortdecai hits cinemas on January 23.
