On The Road

Well, we got the trailer for "On the Road" about a month ago, and since then a handful of character posters for Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Amy Adams, Alice Braga and Elisabeth Moss, so how about a few more looks at the actual movie?

The official website (via HeyUGuys) for the film has unveiled a handful of new images both from the film and behind the scenes, giving us another opportunity to peek at the extended ensemble cast. We get our first look at Kirsten Dunst, who plays Camille (aka Carolyn Cassady), the wife of Neal Cassady and friend to Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. We also get snaps of Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley as Marylou, Dean Moriarty and Sal Paradise. It's all pretty lovely stuff, and mostly, we just hope a bunch of Twihards start reading Proust because Stewart is holding "Swann's Way."

We don't need to remind you, this is tipped for Cannes and has a U.K. release date of September 21st. No U.S. date yet. Check 'em out below.

    Kristen has said from day one that her role in On the Road is a small role. On the other hand, I think that although the book itself is about the two main male characters (Sal and Dean), the movie by Walter Salles could be putting a bit more emphasis and development on female characters. I am impressed by the entire cast and most of them are sort of similar to the book's characters - a bit of beat, hippie, off the beaten path, poets, loners, musicians, rebels and not the typical Hollywood stars even if some like Kristen and Garret became well known and popular after they were cast in On the Road.

    peoples need to remember that it's not kristen the problem but the media and stupid girls who won't leave her alone.
    and aslo if you love kerouack that much then you would know that the beat generation is not pretencious and dosn't care that much about the reputation...

    Hi my fav. film of this year!

  • Huh? | April 5, 2012 6:25 PMReply

    Where does it say "lead" and Kristen Stewart above?

  • amanamandada | April 5, 2012 3:00 PMReply

    Are you sure that Kristen Stewart is not the lead, look at the principal names on the official poster

  • lia | April 5, 2012 4:02 PM

    Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart. That's the order of the names on theofficial poster. Marylou is in 1/3 of the movie only. Kristen only filmed for 2 months while Garrett and Sam did it for 6 months. I suggest you all read the book before talking, please.

    Based on the book, she's not the lead. Maybe the movie's different.

    Haha peple calling out Playlist are so right. You always call On The Road 'Kristen Stewart's movie'. I know you're desperate for hits but it's getting ridiculous by now. Respect Walter Salles and the real leads of the movie, Sam Riley and Garrett Hedlund. Kerouac must be rolling on his grave now, poor dude.

  • james | April 5, 2012 2:49 PM

    when have they said it was kristen stewart's movie?

  • Kiki | April 5, 2012 2:44 PM

    Who cares about Kerouac's great American classic novel when you can have another teen movie for twihards, right? Yes that's how those idiotic media outlets are treating this fabulous film. It's a shame.

    Garrett Hedlund looks like no one else could have been Dean Moriaty but himself in this film. Amazing casting and impressive stills!

  • terry | April 5, 2012 4:04 PM

    I agree, he also looks fantastic in the trailer. I see at least a Golden Globe nomination for him, or maybe more, who knows? It's definitely a break through role for him. He's gonna be a big star after On The Road.

    Marylou is just a supporting character in the film, so begging hits from those teen fangirls making them thnik she's the lead is pretty sad. Playlist, you can do better than that.

  • a | April 5, 2012 2:31 PM

    What are you people talking about? They never said she was the lead. They said there were brand new pictures of her in the movie.

  • Missie | April 5, 2012 2:17 PMReply

    Oops, I meant literary savviness. See, I just showed you the importance of rereading ones post and how easy it is to fix it! Now you try it!

  • Kiki | April 5, 2012 2:14 PMReply

    If you want ignorant twihards to read Proust why don't you stop calling On The Road a Kristen Stewart's movie? That's ignorant and pathetic. Just because you want hits from those teeny boopers you don't have to go that low. Get a grip morons.

  • Oogle monster | April 5, 2012 10:33 PM

    @A- I interpreted your comment ("It is kind of a Kristen Stewart movie") as you saying she was enough of a presence in the book or film to warrant some sort of "lead" title. Yes, she does get top billing but that's not the point I was arguing you on. Anyway, matter settled.

  • a | April 5, 2012 5:03 PM

    B - Learn to read.

  • B | April 5, 2012 4:57 PM

    LOL Kristen is not the lead whatsoever. She's just a supporting character and has almost no lines. Read the book before talking BS for God's sake.

  • a | April 5, 2012 4:03 PM

    Um, when did I say she was the main character? What I meant was that it can be considered a "Kristen Stewart movie," simply because she's in it, unless we're getting formal about things in which case it's A Walter Salles Film. It's also worth noting that she's billed as a lead on the poster, so either her role has been expanded or they're using her name to sell tickets. Regardless, The Playlist didn't even say this was "a Kristen Stewart movie," or that she had a lead role, so I don't see the issue here.

  • Oogle monster | April 5, 2012 3:34 PM

    A- Have you even read On the Road? K Stew's character is not even a main character and unless they drastically altered the script, she shouldn't have THAT much screen-time to be considered a lead of any sort.. I get that the marketing of this film is angled more in her favor at the moment because Hollywood is test-driving her star... she needs to have a solid hit outside of Twilight to prove she can carry a film. This movie and Snow White and the Huntsman (though one could argue the appeal for Snow White is more Charlize than anyone else) will be her two biggest tests this year.

  • a | April 5, 2012 2:25 PM

    What you say makes no sense. Twilight fans are going to NOT read Proust because The Playlist called ON THE ROAD a Kristen Stewart movie? (It kind of is a Kristen Stewart movie, by the way, among other things.) Calm down, Kiki.
