The buzz around The Road, an upcoming post-apocalyptic movie directed by John Hillcoat: the first trailer of The Road is now available!
10 years from now one event will change the face of the planet…
Wake, Search, Move, Hide
From Cormac McCarthy
“No country for old men”
At the end of Civilization, an epic journey is about to begin
Run, Protect, Sacrifice, Kill
“A father (Viggo Mortensen) and his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and, when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing: just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food–and each other.”
– Viggo Mortensen as the Man.
– Kodi Smit-McPhee as the Boy.
– Charlize Theron as the Wife (she appears in flashback).
– Michael K. Williams as a thief.
– Robert Duvall as an old, dying man.
– and Guy Pearce as a father wandering with his family.
The bleak future described in The Road is quite scary. And it does not need monsters or aliens to scare: just need humans turned savages…
The movie The Road will hit theaters on October 16th, 2009.
