EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Viggo Mortensen and Cast Travel on ‘The Road’

Viggo Mortensen is an actor who is known for pushing the envelope with every screen role he takes. From a warrior king in The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, to an amnesia ridden reluctant hero in A History of Violence, to his Oscar Nominated role as a undercover agent posing as a Russian Mobster in David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises, Mortensen always delivers with a strong and moving performance. In his new film The Road, opening in theaters on November 25th, the actor once again takes on a difficult role as a father trying to protect his son from the hardships of a post-apocalyptic future. We recently had an opportunity to speak with Mortensen, along with his co-star Michael K. Williams (The Wire) and the film's director John Hillcoat (The Proposition) about the movie, the cast, the book it was based on and how to survive the inevitable post-apocalyptic future. To watch our exclusive interview click on the video clip below.

An unnamed father (Viggo Mortensen) and his young son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) struggle to survive after an unspecified apocalypse and make their way toward the coast for possible food, shelter, safety, or to potentially find other survivors of the cataclysmic events in this film based on No Country for Old Men author Cormac McCarthy's best-selling and Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Road. Along the way, they encounter grave struggles and hardships across the barren landscapes, with scarce shelter and resources available to them, and having to avoid bands of cannibals and other desperate gangs looking to pillage valuables and food. Various flashback sequences occur where the Man remembers events prior to the catastrophe, many involving his deceased wife played by Charlize Theron. Also starring Guy Pearce, Molly Parker, Garret Dillahunt and Robert Duvall, directed by John Hillcoat, The Road opens in theaters on November 25th.

MovieWeb's 2009 Fall Movie Guide!

Labor Day weekend is coming up, and it's a holiday that marks the end of the summer movie season along with summer itself. All the kids are heading back to the classroom for another dreaded year of school and (for those in L.A. like myself) the weather starts to cool... hopefully. While fall usually isn't seen as a cinematic hotbed, with the blockbuster summer season over, there are still plenty of quality films to check out at the box office. This year we have Megan Fox's possessed body, a sensational animated film and a new zombie adventure. There's a lot more that I'm looking forward to this fall, so here is a comphrehensive look at what you can expect from this fall movie season.
