Today, we have a new trailer for Viggo Mortensen
(A History of Violence) upcoming post apocalyptic thriller “The Road
,” which is based on a best-selling novel by Cormac McCarthy
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.
The post apocalyptic thriller stars Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce
and Kodi Smit-McPhee
. Director John Hillcoat
(The Proposition) led the production, based on a screenplay by Joe Penhall
and Nick Wechsler
“The Road” hits theaters on October 16, 2009.
