Trailer for Cormac McCarthy’s The Road


This will nicely follow Richard’s post about our Bleakest Books feature. Here’s the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of The Road by Cormac McCarthy. The film is set for release in the USA on November 25th.

(skip ahead to 0:43 to skip the annoying announcer lady at the beginning).

If you’ve read the book, then the trailer will probably make you shiver a lot, like it did me. If you haven’t read the book, I’m torn as to whether to recommend it. I would say it is among the finer pieces of writing I’ve ever experienced, and it did a bang-up job at staying with me – it was a profoundly affecting book. That said – holy nightmares, Batman.

Nevertheless, it was so effective, so engrossing, and so paralyzingly captivating that I know I’ll see the movie ASAP – and then wonder whether to recommend it to others.
