'On the Road' movie still with Kristen Stewart

The first American trailer for On the Road takes a different tact from the international trailer that we posted earlier in August. It has greater urgency, moves to a bolder beat and puts more emphasis on sex and energy.

I think it works. I’ve posted it after the jump. Take a look and tell me what do you think?


Based on Jack Kerouac’s classic novel, On the Road stars Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, Terrence Howard, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi.

It’s directed by Walter Sales (The Motorcycle Diaries) and will be co-distributed in the United States by IFC and Sundance Selects. The movie debuted at Cannes in May and will play at the Toronto International Film Festival this month, but so far no release date has been announced.

Synopsis: After the death of his father, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a wild and infectiously charismatic ex-con. They hit it off immediately. Determined to avoid the pitfalls of a narrow, prescribed life, Sal hits the road, joining Dean on what evolves into a life-changing physical and emotional odyssey. Thirsting for freedom, they discover the world, the ecstasy of experience, the connectedness of humanity and ultimately themselves.
