New posters have gone online for The Rum Diary starring Johnny Depp, Rodrigo Cortes Red Lights starring Robert De Niro, and Zhang Yimou’s The Flowers of War starring Christian Bale.  Here’s what you need to know about each poster: The Rum Diary is the second poster this year featuring Johnny Depp’s character and a fish.  The international poster for Red Lights poster is the same as the U.S. one except it has a black background and the tagline translates to “The Truth Is The Most Dangerous Of Illusions.”  Finally, The Flowers of War poster has Bale as a priest admiring a nice Asian lady’s cleavage.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The Rum Diary opens October 28th and also stars Amber Heard, Richard Jenkins, and Aaron Eckhart.  Red Lights opens in 2012 and also stars Cillian Murphy, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sigourney Weaver.  The Flowers of War has no U.S. release date but it’s China’s official submission for the Best Foreign Film Oscar.


Here’s the official synopsis for The Rum Diary:

Based on the debut novel by Hunter S. Thompson, “The Rum Diary” tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman (Richard Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked life of the island, Paul soon becomes obsessed with Chenault (Amber Heard), the wildly attractive Connecticut-born fiancée of Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart). Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals, is one of a growing number of American entrepreneurs who are determined to convert Puerto Rico into a capitalist paradise in service of the wealthy. When Kemp is recruited by Sanderson to write favorably about his latest unsavory scheme, the journalist is presented with a choice: to use his words for the corrupt businessmen’s financial benefit, or use them to take the bastards down.

    Very beautiful lips. I mean the woman´s not Bales´. Just don´t get why he is looking so strange at the camera. It would have been a very good looking poster, but now it just looks like a picture of Bale taken on a set (like all those Batman set pics) where he is looking straight at the camera and thinking: “who the hell is that dude who is trying to take a photo of me??”. Then the director was on the internet and found out about the picture and contacted the amateur photographer and told him he wants to use his photograph on this poster??? Worst idea ever.

    The Flowers of War poster like like a cheap poster of a straight to DVD film. It’s a disgrace to that they couldn’t get a professionally made movie poster made for this film which stars an Academy Award winner.

    I am laughing my ass off at that Flowers of War poster. It’s absolutely terrible.

    I’m very anxious to see Depp embody the good doctor again! Thompson influenced the past few generations with his invention of Gonzo Journalism. His work and antics will live on to influence even more generations to come. I paid tribute to Hunter S Thompson and his work with my portrait and article on my artist’s blog at
