The trailer for Walter Salle’s On The Road finally premiered today, and it’s a hauntingly beautiful glimpse into a film we’re dying to see. It’s been a while since we’ve read Kerouac’s iconic tale, but from what we can tell in ninety seconds, the film feels very close to the book. (Smart Kerouac fans, do you agree?) The movie stars and is narrarated by Sam Riley (Sal), who has a shockingly sexy voice. Garrett Hedlund co-stars as Dean, Sal’s co-hort in his cross country journey of discovery and debauchery, as does our girl Kristen Stewart, who plays Dean’s wife, MaryLou. We love her dancing scene in the trailer, don’t you? So electric!
We’re also excited to see Kirsten Dunst in the mix, who is coming off an amazing year filled with serious accolades for her work in Melancholia, as well as a new, handsome boyfriend who just so also happens to be her On The Road co-star (Hi Garrett!).
What do you think of the trailer, OTR fans?
