USA Today has published the first photo from Dimension Films and MGM's The Road, opening in theaters on November 14.

Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce and 12-year-old Kodi Smit McPhee star in director John Hillcoat's big-screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. It is the story of a man (Mortensen) and his young son (Smit-McPhee) traveling through a desperate, post-apocalyptic world.

Yeah I'm pretty excited too Whalestoe. I've read the book and it's fantastic. I just hope it can live up to that. There's been a lot of buzz going on about this film lately, so I've read.

The Proposition was wonderful, so I have high hopes for this.

Thanks for that link. The book is quite brilliant, though utterly grim, and I'm looking forward to the filmed results. My first reaction though was that they didn't look smelly enough. The odour of the characters is constantly insisted on in the novel.

No problem Juan Miranda. I hope the film can live up to some of the hype it's getting.

Me too. Viggo looks killer. Any idea when we're gonna be seeing a trailer? I'm so pumped.

Plus, isn't Nick Cave doing the soundtrack?

Coolest part: Australian filmmaker Andrew Dominik wants to film "Cities on the Plain," the last book in McCarthy's border trilogy.

Someone give him the money. Now.

I'm just wondering about the wife she has no part in the book other than a memory so who is Theron playing?

His wife. From what I've read the trailer is über misleading.
