It would seem that FilmDistrict doesn't feel like they need Johnny Depp's face to sell audiences on Bruce Robinson's The Rum Diary. While the international poster we reported on yesterday brought us so close to Johnny Depp that we could almost see his pores, the US posters have been going a more creative route. Earlier this month we received the film's first poster, which spelled the title of the film in alcohol miniatures, and today a new one-sheet has premiered featuring Depp with his back to the camera.

Check out the new art below and head over to Apple to see it full size.

I think this is a fantastic poster. While I'm sure the ladies will appreciate the shirtless, pantless rear view of the movie's star, it also does a great job setting the illusion of chaos - something that will hopefully be able to sell the movie. I don't know about you, but I can't even imagine the kind of night that would result in a goldfish, a gun, and bowling pins lying on the floor of my room.

Set to be released on October 28th, The Rum Diary is based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson and chronicles the tale of a journalist named Paul Kemp (Depp) as he lives life in San Juan, Puerto Rico during the late 1950s. The film has an amazing supporting cast that includes Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins, Amber Heard, Giovanni Ribisi and Michael Rispoli.
