The new trailer for John Hillcoat’s “The Road” is the clearest example yet that Dimension Films has absolutely no idea how to market this movie. They’re trying to show the bleakness of the post-apocalyptic world and then show rousing hope as if to say, “Look! You can see this movie on Thanksgiving weekend! It’s a feel good movie! It’s about the love between a father and son and you won’t even notice that most of the world is an empty wasteland populated with corpses.” I’m looking forward to the film, but since I try not to read reviews for movies I haven’t seen I don’t know if the film is this schizophrenic or if it’s just the marketing. I’m hoping it’s the latter.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. “The Road” opens on November 25th.
