Kristen Stewart stars in 'On the Road', an adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel of the same name.

The first trailer for the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel 'On the Road' was released March 11, offering a look at the upcoming film to play Cannes.

Set during the era of the 1950s Beat Generation, the footage follows the 1957 semi-autobiographical story of a group of friends on a road trip across America in a search for "It". The trailer highlights Stewart as the wild 16-year-old wife of Kerouac's friend Dean Moriarty.

It stars Kristen Stewart ( The Twilight Saga), Garrett Hedlund ( Tron: Legacy) as Dean Moriarty, Kirsten Dunst ( Melancholia), Viggo Mortensen ( A Dangerous Method), Amy Adams ( The Fighter) and Sam Riley ( Brighton Rock).

Trailer: On the Road

The trailer is narrated by Sal Paradise, Kerouac's alter ego, who reads an excerpt from the iconic book: "The only people that interest me are the mad ones...who burn like Roman candles across the night."

The film is directed by Walter Salles ( The Motorcycle Diaries) and produced by Francis Ford Coppola ( Apocalypse Now, The Godfather).

On the Road premieres at the Cannes Film Festival, May 16-27, and opens in May in Belgium, France and Portugal.

It then opens in Sweden, Brazil and the Netherlands in June, followed by Italy, Denmark and the UK in September and then Germany and Argentina. The North American release date has yet to be determined.
