Often put in the category of an unfilmable book, and in the works for decades, this fall will finally see Walter Salles' long-awaited, star studded adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" hit theaters. And after plenty of posters, clips and promo material before the Cannes Film Festival where it premiered this spring, this brand new trailer offers the most extensive look at the film yet.

On The Road Riley Hedlund

Often put in the category of an unfilmable book, and in the works for decades, this fall will finally see Walter Salles' long-awaited, star studded adaptation of Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" hit theaters. And after plenty of posters, clips and promo material before the Cannes Film Festival where it premiered this spring, this brand new trailer offers the most extensive look at the film yet.

Led by Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kristen Stewart, Walter Salles' film attempts to capture the freewheeling nature of the Beat classic, and while James Rocchi approved of the film back in May, this writer was decidedly less taken with the movie that, running nearly 2 hours and 20 minutes, is almost too much for its own good. However, it should be noted that the performances are all strong, from the youthful leads to dudes like Viggo Mortensen and Steve Buscemi and step in and knock small appearances out of the park.

IFC Films and Sundance Selects picked up the film and have it slated for as yet unannounced late fall release this year. Check out the trailer below.
