I’m about to confess something–I’ve never seen a single “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie. Not. One. Oh, I love Johnny Depp behaving badly in eyeliner, I just don’t want to sit through the rest of the crap for two hours. So there you have it. Seems I enjoy a different genre of Johnny Depp films…and don’t come NEAR me with that chemistry-free pile of garbage, “The Tourist”, either.
So, take a look at the trailer for Johnny’s new film, ‘The Rum Diary’, won’t you?
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. I want my Johnny Depp films to be dangerous, funny, sexy-cool and Disney-free, thankyouverymuch.
This film has been in the works off and on since they year 2000. It’s based on a Hunter S. Thompson novel about a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean. Paul is challenged on many levels as he tries to carve out a more secure niche for himself amidst a group of lost souls all bent on self-destruction. (IMDB)
