So it looks like they’re finally going to be releasing the movie version of The Road on October 16th. The movie was filmed over a year ago and was originally supposed to be released last fall/winter, but got pushed so that the studio could focus its efforts on The Reader.
Anyway, here’s the new-ish trailer for the movie. I can’t tell how closely the movie hews to the original — it certainly seems to have the requisite darkness and despair, but it almost seems like they’re trying to make it an action movie.
If you haven’t read the book yet, I really recommend that you try to fit it in before the movie comes out. It’s not a cheery read, but it is one of the better books I’ve read over the last few years.
