The long-in-the-works adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's book, which sees Johnny Depp return to the part of the author, which he previously played in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," is slightly over two weeks from release, but, having skipped the festival circuit entirely (not a particularly good sign...), the publicity machine has been fairly quiet for Bruce Robinson's film, considering it stars the planet's biggest movie star.

Release Includes Score By Christopher Young, Plus Cuts From Dean Martin & Patti Smith



Hey, you know a movie that we keep forgetting is coming out soon? "The Rum Diary." The long-in-the-works adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's book, which sees Johnny Depp return to the part of the author, which he previously played in "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," is slightly over two weeks from release, but, having skipped the festival circuit entirely (not a particularly good sign...), the publicity machine has been fairly quiet for Bruce Robinson's film, considering it stars the planet's biggest movie star.

But, as a reminder that the film is sneaking up, Lakeshore Records have announced the soundtrack, which will go on digital release just ahead of the film, on October 24th, with the physical release following on November 29th. The bulk of the tracks are the score by Christopher Young ("Spider-Man 3"), with colorful titles like "Mother of Balls," "Rockin' on Rooster (With My Dead Monkey's Mother)," "My Car the Cockroach" and "Puerto Rican Piss-Off," but there's also a classic track from Dean Martin, and a new cut from Patti Smith, "The Mermaid Song."

There are also four tracks which seem to feature Depp himself in some capacity: an instrumental version of "The Mermaid Song," a duet with JJ Holiday on "Kemp in the Village," and two tracks by JD Band, which we assume features the star, what with the initials and all. It'll be interesting to see whether he's bringing out his Diet Bowie warble from "Sweeney Todd," or simply playing on the guitar, but we should find out soon enough; the soundtrack lands two weeks tomorrow, and the film will be released by FilmDistrict on October 28th. See the full cover and tracklisting below. [Lakeshore Records] -- Oliver Lyttelton
