New Promo For The Rover
Fear the man with nothing left to lose

Late January brought the first, moody look at Australian director David Michôd’s much-anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, The Rover. If you were after a promo that keeps much of the intense, atmospheric feeling from that teaser, but offered a little more in the way of story, it's your lucky day!

In fact, the new trailer shakes up what we knew of the movie’s plot, aside from the initial post-apocalyptic set-up. The Rover takes place in a world 10 years after the collapse of society. The rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will, it seems, go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him.

It’s another fascinating, complex role for Pearce and appears to be another leap for Pattinson, who has thrown himself into a career working with interesting, challenging filmmakers.

Michôd co-wrote the story with Joel Edgerton before cranking out the script himself. With Scoot McNairy, David Field and Susan Prior also in the cast, The Rover hits US screens on June 13 before arriving here on August 22. It’ll also be shown as part of the Midnight Screenings series at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
