Last week, the studio behind the upcoming Beatnik film, On the Road, released even more posters profiling the story’s many colorful characters on the official Facebook page. While the big-screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s iconic book doesn’t have a release date yet, we do know it will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later in May.
For the main poster, we see stars Garett Hedlund, Kristen Stewart, and Sam Riley in a rear view mirror, set against a desert backdrop. The other posters feature a quote for which each character is known.
The movie trailer for Walter Salles’ film adaptation was released in March. It portends an extremely satisfying movie experience that literary fans have been anxiously awaiting for over 30 years.
After the death of his father, aspiring writer Sal Paradise is staring at the blank page in his typewriter wondering what path his life will be taking. A millisecond later a green automobile comes screeching sideways to a stop and Sal finds his muse as Dean Moriarty appears on the scene. Sal’s life will never be the same as Dean takes us all on a ride to places we never knew existed. Sal Paradise, of course, is Jack Kerouac, and Dean Moriarty is Neal Cassady, Kerouac’s iconic hero of the American night.
