With the holidays comes more than good food, crisp weather and obnoxious family … apparently we also get global devastation, too!
Feast your eyes on “The Road,” John Hillcoat’s adaptation of Comrac McCarty’s Pulitzer Prize-winning best seller. Set before the backdrop of a dystopic future laid waste by some unknown disaster, the film journeys with Viggo Mortensen and co-stars Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron and Guy Pearce.
The poster — “Road to Perdition” meets Hobo-Chic? — doesn’t say much about where the film could go or how good it might be.
But if you’re looking to unleash some post-apocalyptic hell via a glossy revolver, it’ll suffice to distract you from the usual family fluff of November.
Take heed … looks like it’s gonna be a bumpy ride out there!
