The first official full trailer has been released for The Rover, the upcoming Australian drama starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.
The movie tells a post-apocalyptic story, set a decade after society has collapsed and anarchy reigns. Pearce stars as a mas who leaves everything and everyone behind, but when his one last and most valuable possession is stolen from him he sets off to get back what is his.
You can read a synopsis for the movie and check out the intense trailer for The Rover below.
Set in the near future, the world of The Rover is one where mankind’s greed and excesses have pushed civilization to the breaking point. With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Hardened loner Eric (Pearce) travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback. When a brutal gang of thieves steals his car and only remaining possession, they leave behind the wounded Rey (Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric gives chase.
Determined beyond reason, unrelenting in the pursuit of his prey, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that matters to him. Animal Kingdom established [David] MichÃ´d as a master of brooding, slow-burning tension. With The Rover, he will take audiences on a white-knuckled odyssey across a scorched and dangerous world, in one of the most highly anticipated productions of 2014
LOVE David Michod’s first movie, Animal Kingdom and this one looks fantastic – dark, edgy, violent, thriller, â€¦. Rob looks so vulnerable and Guy looks ferocious ! SO PROUD it’s going to the Cannes Film Festival !
