Like most of [=McCarthy's=] books, it was optioned for a film, and TheFilmOfTheBook (Also called ''The Road'') was released on November 25, 2009. It was directed by John Hillcoat, the director of ''TheProposition'', starring Creator/ViggoMortensen and Creator/CharlizeTheron (in a minor role). The score was done by NickCave and Warren Ellis (no, not ''that'' WarrenEllis).

* '''RealIsBrown''': Combined with relentless SceneryGorn like woah. Much of the movie was filmed in an abandoned strip-mine, which is about as close as you can get to a RealLife post-apocalyptic wasteland.
