The new poster for “The Road” wants you to know that you can stand up to the apocalypse with a revolver and a love for your son. Also, don’t forget to wear layers.
While Dimension has slapped it around the calendar countless times, it looks like we’ll finally get to see John Hillcoat’s (“The Proposition”) adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s movie on November 25th. For families, it’s going to be a tough decision of whether they go see this or “Old Dogs”. While it may not have Robin Williams and John Travolta getting into wacky situations, “The Road” has a stronger tie-in to Thanksgiving because in this poster Mortensen is looking at the world’s last butterball turkey. Hit the jump to see the poster and think of ways you can trick your family members into seeing “The Road”.
For those just tuning in, here’s a brief synopsis:
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.
