Director John Hillcoat’s The Road is coming out shortly, and needless to say, I am quite enthusiastic. I loved Cormac McCarthy’s book so much so that’s it one of my favorite books of all time, which isn’t too surprising considering it won the Pulitzer Prize.
When I first saw the trailer, I was somewhat ambivalent about a movie adaptation, especially because it wasn’t quite as I had envisioned it throughout the course of my readings. Even now, I am not sure if it looks amazing, but according to every single report that has come out about The Road, it’s fantastic. With that in mind, I eagerly wait for this weekend, having an excuse to see Viggo Mortsensen in another role in which he looks as though he direly requires a shower.
Watch the trailer here.
