Tuesday’s Top Trailer: On the Road

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

On the Road – Opening May 23, 2012

I’ve been hearing about this movie for a bit, the adaptation of the classic 1950s novel by Jack Kerouac on which I did a 12th grade AP English project. Walter Salles, director of “The Motorcycle Diaries” and “Central Station,” is a strong choice to direct this material, and the cast is spearheaded by two up-and-coming young actors, Garrett Hedlund, recently seen in “Country Strong,” and Sam Riley, who appeared in “Brighton Rock” and “Control,” among others. This cross-country tale is littered with other actors, including Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Elisabeth Moss and Alice Braga, and it looks like Kristen Stewart may even be properly cast in her role. The film appears to be beautifully shot, and if ever there was going to be a genre-defining road movie, this is it. The costumes are detailed and the colors pop, and something tells me this is going to be one of the most talked-about and well-reviewed films of 2012.
