Last week we got our first look at the first promo poster for the upcoming big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac‘s classic Beat generation novel On the Road … and today we get our first look at the film’s first movie trailer. From the first time I heard this movie was being made, I became extremely worried that the source material would not be done justice (especially when I learned that Twilight‘s Kristen Stewart got a starring role in the film). But, thankfully, this first trailer has really put my mind at ease. Check out the trailer below and see what YOU think.
Yes, I am very impressed by what I see in this trailer. This first look at the film hits all the right emotional spots for me … it deffo gives a feeling that the film will be able to adequately bring Kerouac‘s genius novel to life. As I’ve said before, I’ve read On the Road many times and consider it one of my all-time favorite books. I really hope this film can come close to living up to the brillance of the book. While no movie can ever do any book justice, some films come close to getting it right. I hope and pray this On the Road film is one of those successful films … Kristen Stewart, notwithstanding.
So … what do y’all think?
