Today debut in Brazil the film Diary of a Drunk Journalist ((The Rum Diary)
We could not afford to omit this fact here on the Blog. Many people do not understand why the film is not debuting nationally, but only in some theaters of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.
Unbelievable leaving entire regions without, as the South, Midwest, North and Northeast.
The explanation is that those responsible for the dissemination of the film seems to have no idea of the importance and meaning of Hunter Thompson!
For if Johnny was in England disclosing in Oxford, through debate, and the United States in various colleges, here and everywhere, to have followed the same project, mobilizing students and journalists. Because it is not a commercial film.
If the people only focuses popular horror movies, action and comedy, it's because the advertising leads them to it.
Show them the better, explain why things that certainly the public is smart enough to understand. This is also in music.
Then the film will certainly have a lousy box office, not because it is a bad movie, but not being understood and not being distributed to all audiences.
Johnny Depp said he wanted to promote "The Rum Diary", with a bus tour of colleges.
"It's a special little film," says Depp, "The Rum Diary" is one that I feel should be promoted very unlike most movies.
Of course, there are the press conferences (press junkets), the premiere and everything. But Hunter used to give lectures at colleges and things like that.
I feel like I want Bruce and I getting on a bus and driving up to three, four different colleges, and go talk to people. "
For those who want to know a little more of the reasons that led Johnny to do this movie, read this my post a few months ago, when the US debut
And good movie!
