The Rum Diary Debuts Another Stylish Poster


Just yesterday, we featured a look at a new poster design for FilmDistrict’s The Rum Diary that took a 180 from the original teaser’s minimalist design and featured leading man Johnny Depp front and center. Now, another one sheet has debuted and it seems to feature the best of both worlds.

Reprising his role as a Hunter S. Thompson alter-ego, Depp plays New York journalist Paul Kemp, who travels down to San Juan, Puerto Rico to work at the local paper.

Previously, Depp played Thompson in Terry Gilliam’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and was the narrator for Alex Gibney’s doc Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

Also starring Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart, Giovanni Ribisi and Richard Jenkins and directed by Bruce Robinson, The Rum Diary is scheduled to open on October 28.
