The official theatrical trailer for The Road was released yesterday. The film, which stars Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Garret Dillahunt, is now scheduled for an October 16th, 2009, release.
Based on Cormac McCarthy’s best-selling and Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Road is the epic post-apocalyptic tale of a journey taken by a father and his young son across a barren landscape that was blasted by an unnamed cataclysm that destroyed civilization and most life on earth. I’ve been worried that it would be just quietly depressing but it looks as though there is a lot of action adventure to balance the quiet. I’m expecting this to be another incredible Viggo performance. Is it October yet?
