Thanks to Bloody D for filling us in on the just-announced release pattern for John Hillcoat's adaptation of the Pultizer-winning Cormac McCarthy novel The Road. And here it is:

November 14 -- New York and Los Angeles
November 21 -- Limited release
November 26 -- Wide release

There, now you know how long you have to finish the book -- which takes a few pages to get into, but is really quite excellent if you want my opinion. The movie version comes from the director of The Proposition (which is also quite excellent), and the adaptation comes from screenwriter Joe Penhall. The impressive cast includes the likes of Viggo Mortensen, Robert Duvall, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, and young newcomer Kodi Smit-McPhee..

Expect a Cinematical review of The Road in mid-November, since Erik Davis lives in New York and he is REALLY freakin' excited to see this movie. (Oooh, or maybe it will play at Toronto, in which case you can bump that review up a month.)
