Check This Out: Sleek New Poster for Johnny Depp's 'The Rum Diary'
Absolutely nothing in moderation. We've seen a few new posters debuting recently for Bruce Robinson's The Rum Diary, a new Hunter S. Thompson adaptation starring Johnny Depp, but none of them have been that good yet - until this one. The last one just featured Depp's face and nothing else, in this new poster (via Apple), we get a good look at the mayhem he wakes up to one morning in Puerto Rico. Its definitely got a bit of a Hangover tinge, but I really like it, I love the oddity of everything, from the fish to the gun to the bowling pins. Yea, this is going to be a fun time - watch the trailer. See it below and click to download in HD.
Based on Hunter S. Thompson's novel, The Rum Diary, directed by Bruce Robinson (Withnail & I), follows Depp as Paul Kemp, a divorced alcoholic and struggling novelist who decides to "kick around" in San Juan until his ship comes in, working as a journalist for a newspaper that's on its last legs, drinking "gallons of rum" and experimenting with LSD. With his new friend Bob Sala by his side, Kemp becomes entangled in a corrupt hotel development scheme with a PR consultant named Sanderson. After quite a delay, FilmDistrict will finally be releasing The Rum Diary in theaters starting October 28th this fall. Planning on seeing it?
