The Daily Pulse:

"The Road" Finally Leads to Knoxville

Last month we ran a review of the long-anticipated screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road. We don't often have access to press screenings, so it was exciting to have an advance review of a big-budget movie with award-season expectations and some tangential local connection.

The movie was originally scheduled to open nationwide on Nov. 25 or 26--the Thanksgiving weekend. That's why we ran the review. It got bumped at the last minute, but it is finally opening in Knoxville this weekend. (At least that's how it looks right now.)

Thanks for the reminder. This deep into the Season of Giving Me a Headache, a nice advance notice is necessary if I (and I'm presuming a lot of other locals) want to clear out the time needed to see it as early as possible.

Oh, wait. Avatar opens this weekend. Kudos to The Road's handlers for guaranteeing empty seats in their movie's screenings.
