At last, the trailer for "The Road," the movie based on Cormac McCarthy's critically acclaimed book, is hitting theatres this weekend. But even better, there's finally a release date for the film produced by Gloucester couple Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz. The trailer for "The Road," a post-apocalyptic story starring Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron, will be screened starting today before of "Angels & Demons." The movie itself opens Oct. 16. "The Road" is directed by Australian John Hillcoat, with music composed by countryman Nick Cave. (Cave worked on Hillcoat’s movies "Ghosts of the Civil Dead" and "The Proposition," and Hillcoat directing a video for Cave's song “Babe I’m On Fire.”) The Schwartzes, who run the Waltham-based PR firm, Schwartz Communications, have other projects in the works, including a film based Pete Takeda's book "An Eye at the Top of the World," and a script by Paul Schrader.

Interested in hearing a snippet of Cave's score? The BBC did a short piece on the movie, which you can listen to here.
