The Rum Diary, starring Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, coming to Blu-ray in February

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why THE RUM DIARY didn’t do well at the box office, but a lot of the blame has to go on Sony, who seemed to market the film as more of an afterthought than anything. The trailers were confusing and the TV spots tried to make it look like more of an adventure film than a drama. But, the film does star Johnny Depp, so I’m sure it will find a home when it hits Blu-ray on February 14th, 2012. Along with Johnny Depp, the film stars Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart and Giovanni Ribisi. Bruce Robinson handled directing duties.
Special features are almost non-existent, consisting only of two behind the scenes featurettes; A Voice Made of Ink and Rage: Inside The Rum Diary and The Rum Diary Back-Story. Check out the trailer below.
