So, in case you thought you missed "On The Road" or forgot about it entirely, the movie is actually still coming and/or getting released again. Or something. Basically, Walter Salles' film was supposed to open in December -- Kristen Stewart even did a big press sweep to promote it at the time -- and then at the last second it was yanked or they decided to hold on expanding it until the spring. So here we are again, and now some awkward promotion is here to remind you that this is now an option at your local theater. (Again).

On The Road

So, in case you thought you missed "On The Road" or forgot about it entirely, the movie is actually still coming and/or getting released again. Or something. Basically, Walter Salles' film was supposed to open in December -- Kristen Stewart even did a big press sweep to promote it at the time -- and then at the last second it was yanked or they decided to hold on expanding it until the spring. So here we are again, and now some awkward promotion is here to remind you that this is now an option at your local theater. (Again).

A new clip has arrived for the movie, with Stewart's Marylou and Garrett Hedlund's Dean getting all steamy in a car and then having feelings. It doesn't lead to the handjob scene, you pervs, but you should know that it technically did win an Oscar. Okay, maybe not technically, but of all the movies that had handjobs last year -- including "The Sessions" and "Hyde Park On Hudson" (it was a good year for hand love) -- it's certainly the most memorable. But back to the movie for real, it has been whittled down from its Cannes running time. We haven't compared both versions yet, so hard to say how drastic the edits were.

Anyway, you can attempt to see "On The Road" again when it goes VOD and hits theaters on March 22nd. Watch below. [MTV]
