EVEN JOHNNY DEPP COULDN’T SAVE “THE RUM DIARY”
Johnny Depp has been EVERYWHERE promoting “The Rum Diary” (magazines, TV, even colleges) which opened this weekend, but it flopped anyway. Depp has long been a fan of alcoholic drugged-up journalist Hunter S Thompson, and he was responsible for getting the movie made. Apparently moviegoers do not share Johnny’s fascination with self-indulgent Thompson. It only pulled in around five million dollars and could be the biggest flop of Johnny’s career. This still of Johnny from the movie, which takes place in the late 50’s, almost – almost – makes us want to see it.
