The new poster for The Rum Diary spells out the title in rum bottles

Sep. 7, 2011by:

I don't know what the overall opinion of the trailer for THE RUM DIARY was, but I sure as hell liked it.

It's nice to see Johnny Depp get back to the world of Hunter S. Thompson. Plus, Amber Heard is really, really ridiculously good looking. Just saying.

The first poster for the film looks more like a book cover to me. I enjoy it. The title is spelled out in rum bottles. Alcoholism is fun children. I imagine someone hanging it in their dorm room next to a Bob Marley poster simply because it has bottles of alcohol and Johnny Depp's name on it. "Did you read the book?" "There's a book?" Yep.

Check it out in hi-res over at the Pimpin' Poster Palace.

"The Rum Diary tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Depp). Tired of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Lotterman (Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late 50s version of Hemingways The Lost Generation, Paul soon becomes entangled with a very attractive American woman, Chenault (Heard) and her fiance Sanderson (Eckhart), a businessman involved in shady property development deals. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man."

I can't describe how excited I am for this. Bruce Robinson + HST = something is right in the world.

It sort of reminds you of a poster to some college teen comedy, but it works nonetheless. I'm down to seeing this. (Probably on DVD though)
