Watch This: The Making of The Road New Extended Featurette
Late last week, this 11-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for The Road appeared on Apple. I wanted to feature it because it's a great video, but it's quite excruciatingly long, especially to watch online (and not in the Special Features on the DVD). For those that have been waiting anxiously to see this movie, it finally hits theaters this week. I've got an interview with the director, John Hillcoat, that I'll be running in a few days. There's a lot of footage and, to be honest, a lot of spoilers in this, so tread carefully. And I suggest everyone watch it on Apple, it's much better quality, but enjoy it either way and don't forget to see The Road, too!
