Here we get to see the first couple of official images from the Johnny Depp movie, The Rum Diary. Depp is a busy chap at the moment with the first photo from his film, The Tourist, with Angelina Jolie being released last week along with filming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides which is now filming as I type.

Our friends over at SlashFilm put these up after they were sent them from Dutch website, who tell us a bit more about the film (again using Google translator!).

Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) is a freelance journalist who himself is a turning point in his life. He left for San Juan there to write for The San Juan Star, an important newspaper. Paul tries to escape reality through the use of large quantities of alcohol, drugs, women and music. However, if a local outbreak of rebellion, he gets together with his new friend Bob Sala, embroiled in a corrupt Development of a hotel.

The Rum Diary is directed by Bruce Robinson and also stars Amber Heard, Giovanni Ribisi, Richard Jenkins and Aaron Eckhart. It’s based around Hunter S. Thompson’s memoirs written in the 1950s.

From what I can find, The Rum Diary is released in the UK September 24th.
