The Rum Diary Trailer Starring Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp Drinks Up in Puerto Rico in The Rum Diary Trailer

Johnny Depp took on the work of Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and he's doing it a second time for The Rum Diary. Though this film is far less trippy than the former, Depp's characters do share a common characteristic: adventures fueled by mind-altering substances. This time it's alcohol, as Depp plays a journalist named Paul Kemp who moves to Puerto Rico in the 1950s for a change of scenery. There, he meets some wacky locals (including Richard Jenkins, Aaron Eckhart, and Giovanni Ribisi), becomes enchanted with an American girl (Amber Heard), and develops a taste for — you guessed it — rum.

There's a lot of beauty in this trailer: a scenic backdrop, gorgeous costumes, and, of course, the easy-on-the-eyes Depp. Though at times the preview gets a bit silly (there's one double entendre that feels plucked right from a Judd Apatow movie), it could be a light, fun ride — kind of like watching Depp let loose on vacation in a tropical paradise. Check it out when you read more.
