Today Brazil debut in the film Diary Drunk ((The Rum Diary)
We could not let this fact go unnoticed here on the Blog. Many people do not understand why the film is not debuting nationally, but only in a few theaters in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia.
Unbelievable leave out entire regions, like the South, Midwest, North and Northeast.
The explanation is that those responsible for the release of the film seems to have no idea of the importance and meaning of Hunter Thompson!
For if Johnny was in England at Oxford disclosing, through debate, and the United States in various colleges, here and everywhere, should have followed the same project, mobilizing students and journalists. Because it is not a commercial film.
If the people only favors popular films of horror, action and comedy, is because advertising leads to it.
Show them the best, explain why things that surely the public is smart enough to understand. This also occurs in music.
So the film will surely have a bad box office, not for being a bad movie, but because it is not understood and has not been distributed to all audiences.
Johnny Depp said he would like to promote "The Rum Diary" with a bus tour of the colleges.
"It's a special little film," says Depp, "The Rum Diary" is one that I feel should be promoted very unlike most films.
Sure, there are press conferences (press junkets), the premieres and everything. But Hunter used to do lectures at colleges and stuff.
I feel like I want to Bruce and I going on a bus and driving to three, four different colleges, and go talk to people. "
For those who want to know a little more of the reasons Johnny to make this film, read my post this a few months ago, at the time the U.S. debut
And good movie!
