Update: MTV has debuted a new poster for the movie which you can check out below.

It seems as if we've been waiting forever for "The Rum Diary," and in a way we have. It started filming over two years ago and has taken its time in reaching the big screen, and while the decision to skip the festival circuit entirely has made us a bit wary, there is denying that Bruce Robinson -- who directed the grimy cult classic "Withnail & I" -- had no problem adjusting to the sun baked tropical setting of the film.

Based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson, the film has Johnny Depp playing Paul Kemp (reprising his role to a degree as the Thompson stand-in from “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”), a freelance journalist who finds himself drawn to the Caribbean at a critical turning point in his life. While there he battles his editor (Richard Jenkins), and meets the saucy Chenault (Amber Heard) who hangs on the arm of Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart). A plethora of new pics from the film along with a couple of clips suggest a much more laid back vibe than the trashed hotel room poster might suggest. Either way, Robinson makes the most of his Puerto Rico locations where the film was shot, with folks like Giovanni Ribisi still looking good under a scruffy bread and Heard simply looking gorgeous.

"The Rum Diary" opens on October 28th. Take a look and pics and clips below.
