Over a year after filming ended, Dimension Films has finally released a trailer for John Hillcoat’s “The Road”. If the name sounds familiar to you, that’s because it’s based on Cormac McCarthy’s novel and it was originally scheduled to be released last November. While people wondering why the release date was changed, supposedly the studio pushed it back to allow more time for post-production.
After watching this great looking trailer, it shows.
The film is about a family trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. And while many films have tried to tells stories in this type of environment, I think this one looks like the real deal. Of course it helps when you have a cast like Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce starring in the movie.
Anyway, I suggest watching the trailer after the jump. It looks really good.
Here’s the HD version. “The Road” is scheduled for release October 16th.
