UPDATE: On The Road international trailer debuts

The international trailer for the film adaptation of On the Road surfaced. It isn't all that different in terms of dialogue from the first trailer we received prior to Cannes but it's different enough. I usually prefer international trailers to US trailers for some reason. They always seem to be better put together.
On the Road stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, and Kristen Stewart. It is based off the classic Jack Kerouac novel of the same title. There is no US release date officially set just yet. I read a rumor of December 2012 but I don't think Sundance Selects and IFC have confirmed that.
UPDATE (8/7): IFC and Sundance Selects have set a release date for the film. We will see it here in the US on December 21, 2012. It shares the weekend with This is 40, The Impossible, and Jack Reacher. I highly doubt On the Road will be getting a wide release, though. As much as I would love a wide release it probably isn't going to happen because it is such an independent-like film. Unless it does really well it might have to wait for DVD or an early On Demand engagement.
