Feast your eyes on the first two official photos of Johnny Depp looking mighty fine in his new film, The Rum Diary.

Based on Hunter S. Thompson’s autobiographical novel of the same name, Depp plays Paul Kemp who is described as “a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean.”

Depp starred in Thompson’s last movie adaptation, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which became a cult classic after he and Benicio Del Toro brought the twisted tale to the silver screen.

The film also stars Aaron Eckhart, Richard Jenkins, Amber Heard, and Giovanni Ribisi and is set for cinema release this September.
