New Rum Diary Clip Promises Dancing, Amber Heard, And A Shirtless Dude
Johnny Depp’s The Rum Diary, which opens Friday, Oct. 28, catapults the actor back into Hunter S. Thompson’s surreal prose for the first time since 1998’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. And if fans of that that adaptation fear Bruce Robinson’s effort won’t be sultry enough without Terry Gilliam at the helm, this new clip posted via DanceOn: The Dance Video Network should ease their concerns.
That’s Zombieland and Drive Angry star Amber Heard cutting a rug in the exclusive clip. And her moves are so hot, the gentleman trying to keep up on the dance floor’s compelled to remove his shirt. Then again, if I had abs like his, I’d look for any excuse to take off my shirt, as well.
A couple of things were absent from the clip, though. Depp, for starters, who couldn’t even be spotted in the background. Also, the bizarre visual touches Robinson appears to have slipped into his film (as evidenced by that massive tongue in the film’s strange trailer) are non-existent in this straightforward clip. But there’s dancing. So if you’ve already seen Footloose and you’re looking for more passionate moves, Rum Diary appears to have a few. I can’t tell you much more about it, as FilmDistrict neglected to screen the film for review. Didn’t they read our Footloose review? We love dancing. Honestly.
