Viggo Mortensen narrates the struggles and hardships he and on-screen son, Kodi Smit-McPhee, deal with when making their way across a barren landscape in the adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel.
Dimension Films has presented another look at the November-released "The Road" in the form of a new trailer. Debuted via Yahoo! Movies, the two-minute plus sneak peek offers a more depressing tone of the movie. A narration is provided by leading man Viggo Mortensen, while glimpses of him and his on-screen son, Kodi Smit-McPhee, struggling to survive flash.
This post-apocalyptic movie is based on Cormac McCarthy's best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It follows an unnamed father and his young son as they make their way toward the coast for possible food, shelter and safety after an unspecified cataclysmic event. With scarce shelter and resources available to them, they have to avoid the lawless cannibalistic bands that stalk the road along the way.
Dubbed to be "the most important film of the year" by Esquire, "The Road" stars Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and Robert Duvall in addition to Mortensen and Smit-McPhee. Helmed by "The Proposition" director John Hillcoat, the drama thriller has been set to come out in theaters across the U.S. on November 25.
