It's one of the most anticipated pictures of the year, and today (October 28) "The Rum Diary" has made its long-awaited release into theaters.

Adding the high level of appeal to the action/drama flick is its stellar cast, which includes big screen favorite Johnny Depp and his two talented co-stars Amber Heard and Aaron Eckhart.

Per IMDB’s website, “The Rum Diary” involves an American journalist named Paul Kemp who takes on a freelance job in Puerto Rico for a local newspaper during the 1950s - during which time he struggles to find a balance between island culture and the ex-patriots who live there.

While talking about production of the film during a recent interview, Miss Heard told press, "I'm in a 1958 Corvette convertible on an empty highway. It's a beautiful spring day in Puerto Rico. And I'm making a movie with Johnny Depp. He's a beautiful specimen of a human being," adding, "It was a wildly, wildly seductive combination. That moment quite possibly has ruined every other job for me."
