Update: 'The Road' Moving to 2009? Say It ain't So!

16 October 2008 12:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee in The Road

Photo: Dimension Films Update: THR is now reporting it has quietly "been shifted until at least December -- and might be moved out of 2008 altogether." Sasha Stone over at Awards Daily points me to a new article at Entertainment Weekly floating a rumor that John Hillcoat's The Road based on Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel may in fact be moving to 2009. Though the Weinstein Co. web site currently lists its release date as Nov. 14, the mini-studio is unable to confirm that its eagerly-awaited Cormac McCarthy adaptation, starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, will actually be in theaters that day. The website Ew's Dave Karger points to is the long in place official site that has always labeled the film with a November 14 release date. However, Karger's report seems bleak for the equally bleak apocalyptic flick saying: Should The Road get pushed, »

Get a Load of the Victims from 'The Road'

Cannibal victims from The Road

Photo: Courtesy Jeremy Ambler If you haven't seen our stills from John Hillcoat's The Road maybe you should give them a look in our gallery right here before taking a look at the behind-the-scenes photos snapped up by Quiet Earth from the personal website of Jeremy Ambler to give you some idea as to how they will look through the lens of Hillcoat's director of photography Javier Aguirresarobe. The photo above is just one of several looks at the victims The Man (Viggo Mortenson) and The Boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee) come across as they travel a lonely road in a world destroyed by some unknown cause. The film is based on Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name and hits theaters on November 14. Unfortunately pics are all we have so far as The Weinsteins and Dimension have yet to release a proper trailer, »

Behind the scenes pics from The Road + official film website found

8 October 2008 8:30 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

It's been a while since we've brought you any news of John Hillcoat's The Road (last update was September 2, 2008 but who's counting heh), so I thought I'd regale you all with some behind the scenes pictures that were taken during the filming of one of the most crucial and suspenseful scenes in the movie. Those of you who've read the book will no doubt remember the scene I'm talking about; the one where The Man and The Boy explore a seemingly empty manor only to find that it's occupied by, well let's just say, those of less than acceptable eating habits... okay fine, they're cannibals.

The photos are from the personal collection of actor Jeremy Ambler (shown to the right) who was lucky enough to play one of the unfortunate "people in the cellar." One thing I can say about the crew of The Road is that everyone seems »

Who's the Next Big Male Movie Star?

29 September 2008 1:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Can anyone catch up to this cool cat? With Shia Labeouf's Eagle Eye taking the top spot at the box-office this weekend it makes four-in-a-row for the actor (not counting the animated Surf's Up) and it made me wonder if the 22-year-old is our next big time actor or if it's just a case of him starring in the right film at the right time that has made his films so popular leaving the title of "The Next Big Thing" up for grabs. Let's face it, Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull were going to make big bucks no matter what, Shia had very little, if anything, to do with their success. One could make the argument that Disturbia opened during a very weak time in 2007 and that accounts for its three week box-office domination with rather modest numbers, winning that third weekend with barely over $9 million. »

Why Wasn't 'The Road' at the Festivals? It isn't Done Yet

16 September 2008 8:09 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee in The Road

Photo: Dimension Films Nick Cave, along with Warren Ellis, delivered what I believed to be one of the top five film scores from 2007 for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and so far this year there hasn't been much in the way of impressive movie music to believe their score for John Hillcoat's The Road based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Cormac McCarthy won't bowl me over again. In an interview with Margaret Wappler for the Los Angeles Times, Cave reveals he is still working on the score as new cuts of the film are still being submitted. As a matter of fact the interview was held while Cave was on a break from recording music for The Road at a London studio. We're working on The Road, and a new edit gets sent every »

Two more images from The Road appear

1 September 2008 6:10 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Considering The Road is primed to be the biggest mainstream post-apocalyptic film of the last few years it should come as no big surprise that we're following every bit of information we find on it and, be it big stuff, like getting our hands on and reviewing Joe Penhall's jaw dropping screenplay, or, like today, tracking down a couple of new images on Yahoo movies you can bet we're gonna continue to follow this film until it's released. But enough about my, probably odd and ill advised, devotion to the film. Lets discuss what we're seeing, shall we? Like the majority of the pics that have been released, these two images below show little else than Viggo Mortensen and young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee. Considering The Road also features an allstar cast, including Guy Pearce, Carlize Theron, Robert Duvall, and The Wire's Michael K. Williams (editor's note: who we've »

Quiet Earth World Exclusive: The Road script review

25 August 2008 9:47 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

No you're not seeing things. I hold in my hands the entire 123 page screenplay for Cormac McCarthy's The Road, written for the screen by Joe Penhall. Oddly, there is no cover page to help indicate which draft I might be looking at but each page is watermarked 9/11/07 (eerie eh?) and there is no question that this is a complete and fully realized work. To be blunt, the script is a complete stunner. It is a devastating masterwork which, I'm glad to report, has been written with absolute devotion to the original novel. If this is the script that gets filmed, then The Road will not only be the most important post-apocalyptic film ever made but it will profoundly affect the cinema going world. But I can't help but wonder; is the world ready for a film this dark? You can read the rest of our review after the break »

Several New Looks at 'The Road'!

21 August 2008 12:38 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Dimension Films courtesy of USA Today USA Today published the image you see above in a new article discussing the creation of the bleak world created in Cormac McCarthy's book "The Road". The film adaptation is being directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition) and stars Viggo Mortensen as The Man and Kodi Smit-McPhee as The Boy. It tells the story of a destroyed world inhabited by cannibals as one man and his son follow the road in hopes of something. In creating the film Hillcoat did not depend on CGI he went for practical. It seems the ashen world created in McCarthy's book is a lot like Pittsburgh. "It's a beautiful place in fall with the colors changing," Hillcoat told USA Today. "But in winter, it can be very bleak. There are city blocks that are abandoned. The woods can be brutal. We didn't want to go the CGI world. »

First Photos From The Road

7 August 2008 10:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The first stills from the upcoming adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s instant classic The Road have hit The Web, and the photos seem to indicate that the film is doing its best to stay faithful to the novel.

And that’s just the way it should be.

For those who read blogs and not books, The Road is the gripping story of an unnamed man and his son, who are making their final trek across the wasteland of post-apocalyptic America towards the California coast, where salvation and warmer weather hopefully await. They have just one gun, two bullets, and a wobbly shopping cart of supplies to keep them alive and protected from roving bands of cannibals, thieves and degenerates. (National Lampoon’s Vacation this is not.)

The Road is slated for a November 26, 2008 release. It stars Viggo Mortensen  as “The Father”, Charlize Theron as “The Wife” and twelve-year old Australian »

Five New Photos from Cormac McCarthy's The Road

7 August 2008 6:43 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This isn't officially the first time we've featured photos from The Road (that was back in May), but it is the first time we get an actual glimpse at how the bleak post-apocalyptic world of the film will tie into the heartwrenching story. John Hillcoat's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road is becoming increasingly interesting as we near the release and start to hear more about the finer details of the production, which is living up to all of the hype so far. This latest update comes from USA Today and introduces six new photos featuring Viggo Mortensen and his on-screen son Kodi Smit-McPhee, as well as Michael K. Williams as the thief. Mortensen shares: "I think what's made this story so universally loved is because it's really about protecting your child, no matter what the circumstances. At its core, it's a love story." If you're unfamiliar with the story, »
