    Another 'Rum Diary' Soundtrack On The Way Featuring Patti Smith, Dick Dale, The Tornados & More

    Okay, so the "Rum Diary" wasn't a big hit and frankly, wasn't a very good movie either. All the promise of a sun soaked Hunter S. Thompson surrogate in Johnny Depp was wasted with a narrative that went nowhere in a movie that is really only notable for Amber Heard looking great in it. But the music ...

    Um, WHAT? There is no horror movie opening this weekend. WHO WILL FILL THE SAW VOID???

    Disney Would Prefer 'The Rum Diary' Didn't Exist, Bans ABC Networks From Talking About It

    'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5' Apparently Aiming To Start Production In Summer 2012It's easy to forget what a roll of the dice Marvel took in casting Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark in "Iron Man." At the time, the actor was still best known for his checkered and controversial past, and the studio was concerned about attaching Robert Downey Jr. to one of their centerpiece franchises as any bad behaviour would put not only the box office into jeopardy, but sequels, licensing opportunities and more. And while Johnny Depp certainly isn't a bad boy, it's that kind of thinking that still dominates the executives overseeing lucrative, four-quadrant fr...

    Johnny Depp Visits The Set Of 'The Hangover' In New Poster For 'The Rum Diary'

    Back when the trailer dropped for "The Rum Diary," this writer (who has not read the book on which the film is based) got pilloried for daring to suggest that the boozy, Caribbean vacay vibe felt less adventurous than Terry Gilliam's "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas." "It’s way different than fear and loathing," our commenters said with folks arguing, "These stories are two different galaxies" and that "nothing really happens in the book other than him going to South America, trying to keep a paper from going under eating alot of cheesburgers and of course drinking alot of rum." Ok, we'll grant that the story is different and comparing "Withna...
