Trailer: The Road

The long-delayed adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road finally gets a trailer and it's a corker! I'm a sucker for post-apocalypse movies so your mileage might vary - but it does look visually stunning and like director John Hillcoat (The Proposition) spared no cost to preserve McCarthy's vision of the end of the world (though I can only presume as such, since for reasons I cannot explain, I have never been able to finish the book! One day...). The film stars Viggo Mortensen, Charlize Theron and Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire), and currently has a US release date of October 16, which puts it comfortably in the running for next year's Oscars.
