Are you ready for your next favorite Johnny Depp movie? The Rum Diary is almost here — it is set for release on Oct. 28 — and we have a new sneak peek for you!
In this scene, Paul Kemp — played by Depp — unexpectedly meets a beautiful blonde and is instantly entranced. It doesn’t hurt that Chenault, played by Amber Heard, is naked and soaking wet when he spies her.
Desperate to get any identifying information out of the beauty — she won’t even tell him her name — he asks her sign.
“What’s your star sign? I’m an experienced astronomer,” he says.
“You can try Pisces,” she responds. “The fish.” And then she swims away.
Watch this new clip from The Rum Diary:
According to the studio, “Based on the debut novel by Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman (Richard Jenkins).”
“Adopting the rum-soaked life of the island, Paul soon becomes obsessed with Chenault (Amber Heard), the wildly attractive Connecticut-born fiancée of Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart). Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals, is one of a growing number of American entrepreneurs who are determined to convert Puerto Rico into a capitalist paradise in service of the wealthy. When Kemp is recruited by Sanderson to write favorably about his latest unsavory scheme, the journalist is presented with a choice: to use his words for the corrupt businessmen’s financial benefit, or use them to take the bastards down.”
Catch The Rum Diary in theaters Oct. 28.
