Johnny Depp: You pretty much either love him or hate him. Personally, I love him. Combine him with Hunter S. Thompson’s “The Rum Diary” and you couldn’t make me more excited. By excited, I mean jumping up and down and screaming with my friend when we first saw the film’s trailer.

The film is based off Thompson’s novel about a journalist who moves to Puerto Rico for his new job and the insanity that ensues. Yes, that’s an extremely simplified summary of the plot, but you really should just read the novel or, at least, go see the film. Needless to say, my friend and I will be fueling our Depp-obsession at midnight on Oct. 28 when the film hits theaters. Jerks are welcome to come with!
