Aquaman star Amber Heard has accused Johnny Deep of lying to the court in their current million dollar defamation case.
Aquaman‘s Amber Heard and Fantastic Beasts‘ Johnny Depp are currently in a defamation case. This case follows Amber Heard’s accusations of abuse from ex-husband Johnny Depp. However, Johnny Depp has denied the accusations and has sued Amber Heard for defamation.
The alleged incident goes back to May 21, 2016, when 911 calls were made. Johnny Depp’s team turned in video surveillance footage with the actor leaving their home at 8:30 PM. Johnny Depp also claimed Amber Heard’s friend waited an hour and a half to call, but he testified in court that he actually called 911 after Amber Heard screamed during a fight. However, Amber Heard’s records say two calls were made regarding an assault that night, one at 8:30 PM and another at 10:09 PM. The Blast has now obtained legal documents with Amber Heard saying Johnny Depp:
“Clearly perjured himself claiming that there was only one 911 call reporting his abuse on the evening of May 21, 2016. ”
With the new findings, Amber Heard hopes Johnny Depp is:
“Held responsible for submitting provably false and misleading, and in any event, irrelevant statements in his declaration. These signal an intention by Mr. Depp to litigate in the court of public opinion. The true impetus of this lawsuit is not the alleged defamation but that three years after the fact, Mr. Depp found ‘new evidence’ he wanted to present to a court some 3,000 miles from where any evidence or witnesses are found.”
Another record from Amber Heard shows that the LAPD met with her and Johnny Depp and verified a verbal dispute. Jonny Depp’s team has pointed out LAPD statements that say there was no sign of physical abuse done to Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp’s attorney Adam Waldman said the following in response to Amber Heard’s claim:
“Ms. Heard says she ‘will not be silenced,’ and then remains silent for months as her hoax is buried by the avalanche of evidence.” He adds, “As for her hoax-assisting friends, willing to perjure themselves for her 3 years ago ― where are they now? Ms. Heard continues to defraud her abused hoax victim Mr. Depp, the #metoo movement she masquerades as the leader of, and other real abuse victims worldwide.”
Here is the official synopsis for Aquaman:

‘Aquaman’ 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Review: DC’s Most Stunning Release Yet
The DC Extended Universe may have had a mixed history in regards to the critical reception to its numerous films, but James Wan’s underwater epic Aquaman has been widely considered to be a home run for the DCEU as the franchise turns to a new direction focusing on the standalone outings for their beloved roster of heroes. Now, Aquaman will finally be available to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday March 26.
This review will focus on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of the film, tackling its picture quality, surround sound and bonus features to see if this is worth adding to your collection.
The visual presentation for Aquaman on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is showcased through 2160p Ultra High Definition Variable 2.4:1 & 1.78:1. Given that the film is one of the most visually pleasing and colorful comic book films in recent memory, the stunning cinematography both on land and sea is something to behold.
The colors particularly stand out through each action sequence that takes place underwater as well as the incredible chase sequence in Sicily where Arthur Curry (Jason Momoa) and Mera (Amber Heard) are on the run from Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his team.
But what makes this visual presentation of Aquaman stand out from the pack is that the IMAX aspect ratio was preserved for this release. This is similar to previous Warner Bros. Blu-ray releases such as Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises so viewers can have a semblance of what the big screen IMAX experience was like at the comfort of their own home.
Overall, the visual presentation of Aquaman is truly demo-worthy for those wanting to show their friends the visual capabilities of their 4K TV or to even have some exciting visuals to play in the background. In particular, the Trench Sequence is one that demands to be replayed again and again.
On top of being a visual splendor both on the big and small screens, Aquaman is filled with incredible sound design that rocked audiences when it dominated the box office during the holiday season and will continue to rock viewers at home. Presented through Dolby Atmos-TrueHD, the sound is particularly prominent whenever the numerous transitionary explosions are showcased.
Every splash of water, every clanging of swords and of course, every explosion immerses home viewers into Wan’s Atlantis. The underrated score by Rupert Gregson-Williams is also showcased powerfully through the surround sound presentation that helps compliment the stunning visuals on display.
Both the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and regular Blu-ray release of Aquaman is equipped with over an hour of bonus features that will give fans an epic behind-the-scenes look at how Wan and company brought this epic Atlantean story to life. Although the lack of a director commentary is disappointing, it is still exciting to see how Wan brings his unique directorial vision and craft to the DCEU. These bonus features give fans a look at how Wan collaborates with his cast and crew and even gives viewers an opportunity to look into the history of the King of Atlantis as well as his archnemesis Black Manta among others.
Of all the DCEU 4K Blu-rays to be released thus far, Aquaman is certainly the most stunning release yet. When it made a splash in cinemas worldwide, the film proved to be the most visually stunning DCEU movie thus far, and the fact that it missed consideration for Best Visual Effects at the Academy Awards is an utter shame.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment did not disappoint with this release. In fact, the IMAX aspect ratio being preserved with this 4K Blu-ray is reason enough to add Aquaman to your collection. As far as the full home video package goes, this is as good as it gets.
Aquaman is now available to own on Digital HD. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, regular Blu-ray and DVD will hit stores on Tuesday, March 26.
