The Rum Diary will be released by Entertainment in Video on Rental & Retail DVD & Blu-Ray on March 5th 2012. We have three copies of the Blu-ray to give away.

Based on the debut novel by Hunter S. Thompson which initiated his long, distinguished and brilliantly unpredictable career, 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 late 50’s version of Hemmingway’s lost generation, Paul soon becomes increasingly obsessed with Chenault (Amber Heard), the wildly attractive Connecticut-born fiancée of Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), a businessman involved in shady property development deals.

All you need to do for your chance of winning a copy of the Blu-ray is email contest@obsessedwithfilm.com with the e-mail header The Rum Diary Make sure you leave your full name and address. Winners will be picked at random and notified in April.
