The image appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, cover date August 19, 2011, which focuses on this fall’s new movies. Of the much-anticipated film, Clark Collis writes, “Depp stars as a writer at a Puerto Rico newspaper in the ’50s-set The Rum Diary, an adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson’s novel. The actor was a friend of the late author’s and played him in 1998’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

Collis also notes that Johnny shot The Rum Diary before Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but “deliberately delayed its release.” Explains Johnny, “You can’t open it next to some blockbuster thing. It’s a special little film.” The Rum Diary will open in North America on October 28.
