The slick, suited and dripping-in-jewelry version of the sometimes Caribbean pirate and father of an angel that Dior shared back in June is indeed the Johnny Depp of the brand's new Sauvage fragrance campaign. Released alongside a series of desert mood shots -- an eagle taking off; a wolf on the roof of a vintage Dodge Challenger -- Depp stares seriously across the rocky landscape wearing a navy blue shirt (collar undone, of course), a black waistcoat and fists full of rings and bracelets.

In a teaser for the upcoming film by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, the camera pans over skyscrapers at night, as Depp growls, "I gotta get outta here. Which way? I don't know," over an electric guitar playing a slow blues riff. A release from Dior suggests that Depp will take a road trip from LA to Joshua Tree, California, with an original soundtrack by slide guitar master Ry Cooder.
