Some brand new photos from the upcoming movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Road have hit the web and Screen Rant has them here for you.

The more I see from this movie, the more I’m confident that director John Hillcoat (The Proposition) has done right by McCarthy’s bleak vision of post-apocalyptic America. Viggio Mortensen and young Kodi-Smit McPhee look like they have really nailed the lead roles of The Man and The Boy. No matter how gritty they look, you can see their father/son bond holding strong. Great acting, from great actors. I can’t wait to see this movie.

Still no word on when the Weinstein Co. plans on releasing The Road. In the meantime you can check out Screen Rant’s collection of production stills here. After you’ve had a look, let us know what you think.

  1. This looks like one of those movies that you need a strong stomach to sit through. Not specifically due to gore but due to how bleak it seems it will be.

    Never read the book but I get the feeling it doesn’t have a happy ending.


  2. @vic

    Which picture gave you that impression or was it the script talking about baby eaters? lol I think the baby eaters did it for me

  3. Just things I’ve heard about the story in general.


  4. Yes your right Vic, that’s going to be its ironic fate…

    Will it drive people away??? The book works because you use your imagination, and its all you and your imagination…
    When you see the images in (movie form), it might be considered a bad horror movie, or such a downer that most only see it once,,, (as with the saw films)

    The book is a fasinating, well written trip though hell… Its dire bleakness is a real page turner…

    Let’s pray it never get this bad…

  5. When the food runs out…you gotta eat something I guess…YEESH!!

  6. Vic the story is unremittingly bleak. The ending is too but includes a glimmer of hope.

  7. These are not the “cannibals” — These people are the cannibal victims from the cellar, where they are kept pending consumption. Sadly, the cannibals are probably in better shape.

  8. At lwast the victims look happy in this photo cant say what they will be like in the movie

    Has anyone found a trailer for this? Ive looked all over the internet and no one has it.

  9. just got the book cant put it down awesome read but i find its a lot like robert edmon’s path to savagery witch was later made into movi ecalld ravagers witch was shot in my home town of birmingham al

  10. I personally know Jeremy Ambler…I met him on the set of HBO;s John Adams…I’m proud of this film…i have several actors i know personally…and i very very recently talked to jeremy and he attended the premiere in toronto, and i was told the movie was very dramatic and one of the saddest films he has ever seen…not ot mention he is in the trailer as well…I think this will reach oscar nomination…at least golden globes
