Johnny Depp Placed Front And Center In New Poster For The Rum Diary
There are thousands if not millions of Hunter S. Thompson fans who have been waiting for Bruce Robinson's adaptation of The Rum Diary, but that's not the biggest mystery behind the project's numerous delays. Rather, it's the fact that Johnny Depp, arguably the biggest star in the world, is playing the film's starring role. Now that the wait is over and the movie is set to come out on October 28th, it was even more surprising that Depp was all but completely absent from the film's first poster. It was a creative choice and one that was much appreciated by fans of clever designs, but it would seem that the international markets aren't messing around. IMP Awards has posted the newest one-sheet and it's 99% Johnny Depp.

In the movie Depp plays Paul Kemp, a freelance journalist that moves to San Juan, Puerto Rico in the late 1950s and begins to work for a small newspaper. Interacting on a daily basis with a full cast of colorful characters, Kemp runs into trouble when he meets a gorgeous woman named Chenault (Amber Heard), with whom he becomes infatuated, and her rich fiance, Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), who is developing a land deal that may not be aboveboard. The film also stars Richard Jenkins, Michael Rispoli, and Giovanni Ribisi.
