Watch Johnny Depp in THE RUM DIARY Trailer
Check out the new trailer for Johnny Depp’s THE RUM DIARY, due in theaters October 28.
Johnny Depp is a machine, an unnaturally youthful and nearly infallible creative machine. THE RUM DIARY is his newest starring vehicle, a long time gestated, adapted from Hunter S. Thompson’s book of the same name. From the trailer, the film looks fun and features a respectable cast including Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi and Richard Jenkins.
As if the cast wasn’t enough to justify seeing THE RUM DIARY, the film was written and directed by Bruce Robinson… wait, what? Ok, I didn’t just hear you say “the guy who made JENNIFER 8,” because (while that’s a modestly decent film) the man was a cultural filmmaking icon of the ’80s! For those of you unfamiliar with his early work, go out this weekend and track down WITHNAIL & I (1987) and HOW TO GET AHEAD IN ADVERTISING (1989) and redeem yourselves. You’re welcome.
