Director John Hillcoat is bringing us The Road, a post-apocalyptic movie based on the bleak novel of the same title written by Cormac McCarthy. Here below four new preview clips of the Road:
The Road – Taking a bath
The day before the apocalypse.
The Road – Not gonna quit
The Man (Viggo Mortensen) pleads with his wife (Charlize Theron).
The Road – Last Man on Earth
The Man (Viggo Mortensen) talks to a fellow traveller (Robert Duvall) about God.
The Road – Dream
The Man (Viggo Mortensen) dreams about his past life.
“A post-apocalyptic tale of a man and his son trying to survive by any means possible.”
I thought it would be hard to convey the feeling of despair described in Cormac McCarthy’s novel. But Director John Hillcoat did manage it quite well in his movie adaptation of The Road. But the great performances of Viggo Mortensen, Kodi Smit-McPhee and the rest of the cast definitely contributes to that feat too.
