One of my most anticipated films of December/January has to be On the Road. While I have never read the book, the great ensemble cast and look and feel of the film is what is getting me excited. This is the third trailer, and probably the one that gives you the best look at the film and the story. The boys are a little excited about a Kristen Stewart topless scene, and there might be others.
On the Road is a film based on the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac. Walter Salles directed and Jose Rivera wrote the screenplay. The film stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Alice Braga, Elizabeth Moss, Danny Morgan, and Marie-Ginette Guay.
“Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles (CENTRAL STATION, THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) and based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac, ON THE ROAD tells the timeless story of Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by the arrival of Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a free-spirited, fearless, fast talking Westerner and his girl, Marylou (Kristen Stewart). Traveling cross-country, Sal and Dean venture out on a personal quest for freedom from the conformity and conservatism engulfing them in search of the unknown, themselves, and the pursuit of “it” — the pure essence of experience. Seeking uncharted terrain and the last American frontier, the duo encounter an eclectic mix of men and women — Bull (Viggo Mortensen), Camille (Kirsten Dunst), Carlo (Tom Sturridge), Jane (Amy Adams), Terry (Alice Braga), Galatéa (Elisabeth Moss) – each impacting their journey indelibly.”
On the Road is in limited release on December 21, 2012 and goes wide in January 2013.
