Must Watch: Brand New Trailer for John Hillcoat's The Road
The Weinstein Company has debuted a second, brand new trailer for John Hillcoat's The Road adapted from the beloved Cormac McCarthy novel. A lot has changed since the first trailer for The Road debuted in May - mainly that lots of critics and people have finally seen the film (including me, read my review). It not has great buzz and confirmation that it stays true to the themes of the book, including that they never reveal why the world is the way it is, and so on. This new trailer captures how depressing and bleak and hopeless the film feels, which sounds bad, but is actually one of the many reasons why it's such a wonderful film.
