View the TRAILER

Plot synopsis: A father and his son traverse through the burned out hull of America. Headed for the coast to escape the cold, dark winter, they have just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands of brigands that stalk the road.

Well, the trailer for this just hit the net a couple of days ago, and I must say I'm impressed. I've never read the Cormac McCarthy book, but I've only heard good things, so I hope that the films lives up to the expectations. The cast is pretty star-studded and I'm always up for a post-apocalyptic adventure!

I can't wait for this movie. The book is in my top five favorite books of all time. Let's just hope those folks in Hollywood don't I Am Legend the whole shebang.

really awesome book. i read it cover to cover in 4 hours. couldn't put it down.i hope prattfalls is right and they don't 'Legend" it. Legend is a good read too but nothing like the movie.

the only thing that has me nervous is the Charlize Theron is top billing. i like her and all but there isn't a major female role in the book. spoiler alert.
