the road trailer

Another trailer has been released for the John Hillcoat drama, The Road and it’s grittier than ever. The film will hit theaters this Thanksgiving and doesn’t exactly evoke warm and fuzzy feelings on the inside. It might be weird to watch people starving in a post apocalyptic world when you’ve got a Turkey dinner waiting at home. Either way, the latest trailer shows Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smitt-Mcphee as a father and son on a mission to survive.

As I previously stated, The Road is scheduled to hit theaters on November 25th, which might serve as an obstacle for the promotion of the film. The talent and the story are definitely not in question, and everyone involved has something amazing to bring to the table. Even though it will depress the hell out of me, I might give the film a shot when opening day comes around.

Check out our interview with Viggo Mortenson, John Hillcoat, and writer Joe Penahll and our first look at the film from The London Film Festival for more on what we and they thought about the film.
