A new trailer has been released for the Francis Ford Copolla-produced film On The Road, directed by Walter Salles. This looks like a really interesting coming of age period road trip movie. It's got a solid cast, and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
The film is an adaptation of the book from Jack Kerouac, and it has a great cast that includes Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), Sam Riley (13), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Amy Adams (The Fighter), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), Viggo Mortenson (LOTR) and more.
Here's the Synopsis:
After his father's death in the late 1940s, 24-year-old aspiring writer Sal Paradise meets 20-year-old ex-jailbird Dan Moriarty and his beautiful wife Marylou in New York. Dan is extremely charming and has a flexible moral code, and is as fascinated by Sal's obsession with writing as Sal is by the unfettered freedom of his lifestyle. The two men spend intense nights of drinking, dreaming of another world, and forming a friendship that will take them on a trip across America. After staying at Bull Lees place in Louisiana, Sal, Dean, and Marylou continue traveling - naked and utterly enjoying themselves.
The movie is set to be released on December 21st. Watch the trailer and let us know if you'll be checking this one out in theaters! If you've read the book, does this movie look like a good representation of it?
