On The Road Movie Trailer Promises an Adaptation Worthy of Kerouac
Controversy has raged for decades among Beat Generation fans as to whether this movie should even have been attempted. I can understand both sides of the argument. On The Road is a very personal novel for many, many people. At the Beat Museum, located in San Francisco, we see people from every corner of the world walk through our doors daily who are on their own personal journey kick-started by their reading of Kerouac’s books. On The Road holds a very special place in the hearts of many of these people and they don’t want their vision of Kerouac’s book (and their own personal journeys) messed with.
The flipside of that argument, of course, is that On The Road must be made into a film. Jack Kerouac himself sent a letter to Marlon Brando back in 1959 imploring Brando to make the film. Kerouac understood that a novel is not a movie and he even told Brando he was willing to write the screenplay himself incorporating whatever accommodations and changes needed for the story of the book to work as a film.
In 2012 that argument still has not subsided. But with the release of the trailer for Walter Salles’ film adaptation of On The Road I believe the filmmakers have magnificently met their obligation to the true fan and to their own artistic callings.
Captured in this 1.45-minute trailer is all the energy, drive, excitement and uncertainty of the book itself. The raw sexuality of Garrett Hedlund as Neal Cassady and Kristen Stewart as his 16-year-old bride, Lu Anne Henderson. From the dance halls of New York to the hotel rooms of Denver to the whorehouses of Mexico, Kerouac’s words come alive on the screen.

Thanks to @KerouacDotCom!
KristenStewartFrance.com got some info from @PanicCinema on twitter about an On the Road trailer that was shown at an event in Lyon, France among the upcoming films for 2012.
KristenStewartFrance asked about their thoughts of the trailer and here are the responses:
- @KSFranceCom That is the adaptation of Kerouac? I do not know what to think but it made me really want to finally read the book
- @KSFranceCom But it’s very own adaptation of a classic. We feel a certain energy in this.
- @KSFranceCom I do not remember a specific but I would say 2min 30sec easily. It is quite rhythmic montage that reveals a lot of pictures of the film
- @KSFranceCom Above pictures: a voice, probably the main character, who shares his world view.
- @KSFranceCom I seem to have been mostly the actors and not many girls so little Kristen Stewart
- @KSFranceCom but I could be wrong. After 8 hours of trailers non stop, the brain begins to melt
Big thanks to KristenStewartFrance and MrHedlund for the info Cannot wait for the trailer now!
I’d like to thank Laura from Garrett Minds for this info she got from KristenStewartFrance. This is so exiting! Is it fall yet?
En fin d’après-midi, on a reçu un nouveau mail de MK2 soit le distributeur d’On the road. Et dedans on a pu y apprendre que cet automne un trailer et un site internet seront dévoilés. Aucune date précise néanmoins, ils sont toujours à l’étape de montage du film. De plus, à court terme ils n’ont pas l’intention de dévoiler de photo supplémentaire.
C’est vraiment une bonne nouvelle pour le trailer, avoir un aperçu en vidéo du film est une très bonne chose et nous sommes tous très impatient !
In English :
To recap :
- This fall a trailer and official website of the movie will be released (no precise date).
- They are still at the stage of film editing.
- At short-term, they have no intention of reveal a stills.
