'THE ROAD' Oscar® Buzz! & New International Trailer

After the success of No Country For Old Men it was only a matter of time before more Cormac McCarthy novels were adapted for the big screen.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road film adaptation stars Viggo Mortensen who turns in a performance worthy of an Oscar® nomination. He just may take home the hardware this year!

Mortensen leads an all-star cast featuring Charlize Theron, Robert Duvall, Guy Pearce and young newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee in this epic post-apocalyptic tale of the survival of a father (Mortsensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) as they journey across a barren America that was destroyed by a mysterious cataclysm.

The Road is an emotionally charged masterpiece adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world. It boldly imagines a future in which men are pushed to the worst and the best that they are capable of—a future in which a father and his son are sustained by love. Shot in real environment and "playing it for keeps emotionally" emotionally the tough journey unravelled in The Road is both beautiful to look at and believable, with an uplifting ending. In conclusion, being kind is the most important thing.

Check out the new UK (international) trailer below.

We highly recommend you experience The Road, a soon to become favorite 21st century classic. Looks like Harvey and Bob have another Oscar® contender to add to their slate of Oscar® Buzz films this year: NINE, A Single Man, and Inglorious Basterds! The Weinstein Company's The Road is currently playing in theaters across North America.
