The long awaited trailer for the Road – and it’s bad.
Some of us have been waiting to see a trailer for The Road for a year now. The dumbass Weinsteins chose to push it’s release back and focus their Oscar- promoting funds on The Reader (good call Weinsteins). From all accounts, the film is supposed to be utterly devestating, and fantastic. The script is one of the best adaptations I’ve read. Ever. If you haven’t read the Pultizer Prize winning book by Cormac McCarthy yet, you should be ashamed, then go buy it.
The trailer is finally now released and it looks bad. Real bad. It’s understandable why they chose to make such a trailer, it’s going to draw crowds in that are fans of Underworld, and 28 Days Later, but here’s to hoping ‘ this movie isn’t the fast paced on the run from cannibals, fire storm, kaboom, pow! flick the trailer makes it out to be (Meredith Woerner).’ Watch the trailer below. But please also read the article Esquire did which will restore all the hope we’ve been carrying for a year, that the trailer managed to shatter. I’m just going to call it now, this will win the Oscar for best picture.
Thanks for the heads up Matt.
