The Road has been pushed back quite a bit...it was originally supposed to be an end-of-year movie LAST year...now it's pushed back to November. But it doesn't appear they are doing it because it stinks, as it's getting great buzz for the Viggo Mortensen performance and the adaptation of a critically aclaimed Cormac McCarthy script.I think part of it is just to build up buzz for a movie that is going to be exceptionally written, produced, directed, and acted, but may not be very mainstream."The Road" may be by the same guy who wrote "No Country for Old Men", but evidently it lacks any of the subtle humor in that film (not that there was much).In the same vein, "Shutter Island" is Scorcese's first foray into "horror", so it's a bit of a different audience that will be watching it.Perhaps the "Silence of the Lambs" reference was perfect. That movie was also considered (somewhat) "horror", although not slasher, and look what it was able to do.
