Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. As a die hard fan of Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and of Johnny Depp's approach at adapting the autobiographical characters of Hunter S. Thompson, I am so ready to see The Rum Diary.
It's been in the can for a while and that has led to some speculation that it isn't very good. Now, we finally see a trailer and I can't say anything about the finished film, but the trailer itself is pretty damned exciting.
I mean, Depp has his Thompson voice on, which automatically makes me partial to the trailer and then the craziness of the bits and pieces we see leads me to think just maybe the film will end up being close to the same crazy fun universe glimpsed in Fear and Loathing.
"Try and look normal!" Alright, I'm in.
