Here’s the official trailer for the movie adaption of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel “On the Road,” directed by Walter Salles and featuring actors Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Kristen Dunst, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.
“On the Road“ was first published in 1957 and is loosely autobiographical, based on Kerouac’s years traveling with friend, Neal Cassady.
An overview on Barnes & Noble says, “Kerouac’s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be “Beat” and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than forty years ago.”

The movie is set to be released in December of this year.
