New Images & Video: Amber Heard, Johnny Depp & Aaron Eckhart in Hunter S. Thompson’s “The Rum Diary”

Posted by & filed under Photo Gallery, SFW, Video.

Johnny Depp’s new film, “The Rum Diary,” is adapted from the novel by Hunter S. Thompson. Depp portrayed Thompson in “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and the two were close friends until Thompson took his life. Like any good friend, Depp helped pay for Thompson’s elaborate cannon-firing funeral, then set about bringing one of the author’s first written works to life.

If you’re a fan of “Fear and Loathing” then you’ll love “The Rum Diary,” starring Depp, Aaron Eckhart, Amber Heard and Giovanni Ribisi. Check out the newly released images below, and a just released clip from the film right here:

A friend of Celebs.com, photographer Scott McDermott, sent over some gorgeous shots of Amber looking very Marilyn Monroe… or is she summoning a young Kim Basinger? Either way, you can check out the images here: http://www.celebs.com/archives/celebs-com-originals-ammmb…
