Walter Salles' On the Road Gets UK Release Date

Posted November 28, 2012 04:42 AM by Webmaster

Lionsgate FilmsLionsgate Films UK have revealed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray acclaimed Brazilian director Walter Salles' On the Road (2012), starring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi, and Terrence Howard. The preliminary release date set by the studio is February 25th.

Earlier this year, On the Road was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was nominated for the Palme d'Or Award.

Brazilian director Walter Salles helms this adaptation of the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac that defined the Beat Generation. Sam Riley stars as Kerouac's self-styled protagonist, down-and-out intellectual Sal Paradise, who takes to the backroads of America with his free-spirited friend Dean Moriarty (Hedlund) in a frantic odyssey fuelled by jazz, poetry and drugs in search of the 'it' at the heart of life.

This title was released in France on Blu-Ray earlier this month and is in stock at Amazon FR. It opens in theaters in late December in USA.

Thanks for the additional info RM. Great book. Hoping the movie does it justice. Also drawn to the film because that poster could have been shot on a road close to my house. Looks strangely familiar...

More information on the French Blu-Ray -

The French disc is apparently the original release length of 137 minutes. Imdb indicates that the upcoming USA theater release may be 124 minutes. There is also an indication that some small part of the dialogue is in French. There is no English subtitle support indicated for the disc as listed on Amazon. This may be a non issue???? Can someone who has seen this film comment?

@RogerMathus: In doing some research, here is what I have found. You're right that "apparently" the original release at Cannes is 137 minutes, I have that quoted because I can not verify, but it is what most sources quote.

There was also a shorter version shown in Toronto, it came in at 124 minutes.

The version I watched, which was a screener Blu-ray a friend lent me, was 134 minutes (all English dialogue.)

And after all of these varying run-times, I decided to check out a couple DVD and Blu-ray rips online... Of which I found a DVD rip that was 134 minutes and a Blu-ray rip that was 139 minutes (both beginning and ending with the same studio logo and end credits.)

So, that being said... It appears that there have been several cuts of the film. I know it's not much help, but it will be interesting to see which version(s) eventually get released.

I viewed the French Blu-Ray disc yesterday. It is all in English but the French subtitles are coded as forced. Some players, however, will over ride this lock and allow the sub titles to be turned off. I viewed the disc successfully on my OPPO 93 with out subtitles. As soon as the play started I chose subtitles and moved the selection to off. The screen prompt said operation not allowed but the titles were indeed turned off. I tried this again after watching the movie and I was successful in one of three attempts to turn them off. I am not sure what the trick is - maybe timing or holding the button down for several seconds????? The disc is Region B but my OPPO is made region select.

The video quality of ON THE ROAD is excellent and I enjoyed the film. I did not note the actual running time but I recall the meter reading about 134-136 minutes?
