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.

* ApocalypseHow: Debatable. We don't know how much of the world is dying, but the parts that are may potentially be [[ApocalypseHow/{{Class 4}} Class 4]] - biosphere extinction has already occurred and the affected areas are in the final stages of dying. Some scientists [=McCarthy=] knows have stated that the world the novel is set in is consistent with Earth after a meteor strike or the eruption of Yellowstone Caldera, both of which the world has dealt with and recovered from. But just because the world (and life in some form) would be able to recover from such a disaster doesn't mean that humanity, or even ''most'' other life would.
