The first feature film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel On the Road is finally slated for release this year, and now a new batch of images from the film has gone online.  The studio has been releasing some nifty character posters over the past few weeks, but this group of images gives us a better idea of what to expect from the adaptation.  I was quite a fan of the film’s trailer, and director Walter Salles’ (The Motorcycle Diaries) involvement is encouraging, so hopefully we’re in for a faithful iteration of Kerouac’s story that celebrates the spirit of the book.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film stars Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Tom Sturridge, Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Elizabeth Moss, Alice Braga, and Danny MorganOn the Road is currently without a U.S. release date, but its slated to screen at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival in May.

Here’s the synopsis for On the Road:

After the death of his father, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a wild and infectiously charismatic ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined to avoid the pitfalls of a narrow, prescribed life, Sal hits the road, joining Dean on what evolves into a life-changing physical and emotional odyssey. Thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, the ecstasy of experience, the connectedness of humanity and ultimately themselves.

The images come courtesy of the film’s official website (via The Playlist):
