One of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year On The Road, Walter Salles adaptation of the classic Beat Generation novel, finally has a poster to tease us with … although it doesn’t give away much.
Looking more like a book cover to us, we don’t see how this poster will entice in a new audience other than fans of the book (whilst the filming of the book may have been controversial to a lot of fans, we’re sure they’ll be heading to their local cinema to watch this)
Salles has assembled an exciting young cast of up and comers for the project though, including Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley as protagonist Sal Paradise, and Kristen Stewart, Elisabeth Moss, Tom Sturridge and Kirsten Dunst as well as Viggo Mortensen and Amy Adams. The poster also looks like Salles has kept his promise to film in black and white – although previously released shots were in colour so we may be looking at a mix of both.
