On the Road Gets New International Trailer
Posted 08.10.12 by Mandy
"A young writer trying to take off."
A new international trailer for the movie adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel On the Road has arrived online, and it looks like the movie stays very true to the book. Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, and Kristen Stewart play Sal, Dean, and Marylou, respectively, as the characters scamper across a "vast backyard doing something so frantic and rushing-about."
Yay:From this trailer, it looks like the movie has all the right mid-century details, but still feels young and fresh rather than old-timey.
Nay: Unfortunately, it contains much of the same footage as the US trailer released in the spring, so there's not much that's new.
Question Answered: How do you make a movie about a book that has long observations about the narrator's shoes and the nutritious aspects of apple pie à la mode? From this clip, it looks like it requires a whole lot of voice-over.
