Kristen Stewart Reveals Steamy Side In Final On The Road Trailer

Now that The Twilight Saga is drawing to a close, Twi-hards have to look elsewhere for their KStew fix. Just the other day, the no-doubt wealthy actress was complaining to the press that she’s “desperate” to find her next gig. Maybe that’s because her next film, On the Road, is actually an old(ish) that has been banging around since early 2012, when it played to mild praise at the Cannes Film Festival.

An adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s timeless beatnik novel, Walter Salles’ On the Road rambles along in the path of free-spirited thinkers Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund) and Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), struggling poets drinking and smoking their way through life … and putting off maturity for as long as is physically possible. A new trailer just hit Apple’s trailer site (opens in new tab). See it ifor yourself right here:

Stewart plays Marylou, Dean’s “girl” (though in the beatnik days, loyalty between lovers was nonexistent). It’s a revealing turn for the Snow White actress, meaning you get to see her nude in steamy love scenes. But the selling point of On the Road is Eric Gautier’s dusty cinematography, and some eye-catching supporting performances by the likes of Steve Buscemi, Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen. Hedlund’s pretty impressive, as well, as the generally unlikeable Dean.

After a lengthy delay, On the Road finally opens in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 21. It will expand in 2013, and hopes to contend for a few year-end awards. We shall see.
