Latest On The Road Trailer Rolls In

'The ones who are mad to live...'

Taking its cue from the recent UK promo, the latest trailer for On The Road aimed at our American cousins features a similar aesthetic, with a passage from the book read over some jaunty jazz and images from the film. Take a look below courtesy of Yahoo Movies.

Originally crafted as an autobiographical travelogue by Jack Kerouac, it morphed into something more like a novel when he switched the names. The style – which the movie has adopted – is a stream-of-consciousness that the book is most known for.

With Sam Riley taking on the role of protagonist Sal Paradise (the Kerouac stand-in), Garrett Hedlund plays Dean Moriarty, Kristen Stewart is the free-spirited MaryLou, Kirsten Dunst is Camille, Tom Sturridge is Carlo Marx and Viggo Mortensen is Old Bull Lee, a character not-so-loosely based on William Burroughs.

We’ll get to take the trip on October 12. America will have to wait until December 21.
