It’s not easy trying to keep your kid alive, what with all the cannibals running around licking their lips. For one, kids being kids, they don’t always listen to you, and let’s face it, haven’t we all entertained the idea of selling our kids for a nice meal at least once? Or not. Here are some new images from John Hillcoat’s depress-a-ton, aka his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road”. Sure it’s depressing as shit and you’ll probably want to slit your wrist after seeing it, but man, does it all look visually awesome or what?
Based on the novel of the same name by award-winning writer Cormac McCarthy, “The Road” follows an unamed father (Viggo Mortensen) and his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) as they try to make their way through a post-apocalyptic America, encountering tragedy and cannibals along the way.
Starring Charlize Theron, Viggo Mortensen, Guy Pearce, Robert Duvall, Garret Dillahunt, Michael K. Williams, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Bob Jennings, Jeremy Ambler, and directed by John Hillcoat.
The road leads into theaters November 25, 2009.
