Ever since the Cannes International Film Festival knocked down a few walls between itself and the West in 2001 with festival director Thierry Frémaux coming on board to liven up the Croisette with more of a Hollywood acceptance, the connection between the annual May event and the awards season has become more pronounced. Films like Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge!," Roman Polanski's "The Pianist," Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River," Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom," Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Babel" and David Cronenberg's "A History of Violence" all started their Oscar trajectories in the south of France, while others like Paul Greengrass' "United 93," Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris" and Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" got high profile beginnings out of Competition. A coveted Palme d'Or win sometimes leads to a significant boost in the Oscar season, even if no recipient of the festival's »

As it turns out, you can take the vampire out of Twilight and find some pretty unexpected results. With The Rover, the new film from director and writer David Michôd (Animal Kingdom), Robert Pattinson sheds his sparkly teen vampire image yet again to take part in a dark and dreary drama devoid of all supernatural intervention. Pack all your girlish screams away somewhere, because this isn’t the time or place. “Anarchy is loosed upon the world,” and it’s up to Eric (Guy Pearce) to dig through that chaos as “things fall apart” in the Australian outback (things are really bleak out there). His quest: to hunt down a strange band of criminals who have taken hold of his last possession as he attempts to stay alive and keep his head above water in the process. In his journey, he meets Rey (Pattinson), one of the members of the gang who have messed with his life »

In 2010, David Michod brought us Animal Kingdom - a brutal and gripping drama about an Australian crime family and a teenager's attempts to escape its clutches. It was a superbly acted and observed film, which Michod spent several years writing and perfecting. In fact, we liked Animal Kingdom so much, it made the number one spot in our list of underrated films of 2010.
Four years on, and Michod's back with his second feature, The Rover. Set in a post-apocalyptic, near-future Australia, it stars Guy Pearce (who was great in Animal Kingdom, incidentally) as a traveller whose car is stolen by a gang of vicious criminals, who also leave a seriously injured member of their own group (that'd be Robert Pattinson) in the process. Together, they »
Animal Kingdom director David Michôd's post-apocalyptic Western The Rover is set to premiere at Cannes next month, and judging by the trailer, festival-goers can expect a lot of bleak, parched landscapes, Australian accents (at least, we think that's what Robert Pattinson is going for) and Rust Cohle-style macho philosophizing. Also: a solid amount of Guy Pearce/Robert Pattinson bromance, which is a draw that should not be underestimated. »

‘The Rover’ trailer HD: Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in David Michôd’s Australian Outback-set thriller (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘The Rover’) The Rover, David Michôd’s futuristic, Australian Outback-set thriller that will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival (Midnight Screenings), has a new trailer. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson star in this dark tale about a middle-aged man, Eric (Pearce), hunting down the members of a gang who have stolen his last and most prized possession: his beat-up car. Pattinson, best known as the sparkling vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, plays a (now) former member of the gang, Rey — left behind to die after he’s seriously injured in a fight. See The Rover trailer below. The youthful Rey, in fact, is unlike the other gang members. “If you don’t learn to fight," Eric warns him in a hard-to-understand mumble, "your death’s gonna come real soon. »

Coming from Animal Kingdom director David Michod, The Rover images a future where the world has become a wasteland after the collapse of society. Into this desolate hell comes Eric (Guy Pearce), a loner, who must team up with Ray (Robert Pattinson) after Ray's gang steal Eric's car and leave him for dead. Mixing in heavy drama with some fantastic imagery (just check out the car crash at 0:44), this latest trailer gives a real taste of what to expect, especially the promise of some fantastic performances from the leads. Many will continue to throw Twilight in Pattinson's face, but since that franchise ended, he has been really trying to get out of his comfort zone, more often than not showing he is more than Edward Cullen. Released: 13th June (U.S.)/ 22nd August (Irl/U.K.) »

The crime drama, set in the Australian desert, follows main character Eric (played by Guy Pearce) as he sets out to track down a gang of criminals who have stolen his last possession. Along the way he meets Rey (Pattinson), an injured member of the gang who is left behind near the start of the trailer.
The clip ominously states that “anarchy is loosed upon the world,” and from the looks of it, Pearce and Pattinson’s characters will come up against some rather formidable enemies along their journey. “If you don’t learn to fight, your death’s going to come real soon,” Eric warns Rey.

Robert Pattinson is a quivering bowl of jelly in a new trailer for his upcoming film “The Rover.” His character learns about survival and being a man in a harsh, post-apocalyptic future ruled by criminal gangs. He’s a far cry from the Rob fans know and love on the big screen as Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” vampire series. Pattinson stars as Reynolds, an outlaw gang member who helps rob steely drifter named Eric, played by Guy Pearce. ...Read More
The post Robert Pattinson Beat Up, Shirtless in New ‘Rover’ Trailer (watch!) appeared first on TheImproper.com: Breaking News on Pop Culture, Arts, Music, Theater, Film, TV & Fashion.
With two films set to be screened at Cannes this year, it's safe to say Robert Pattinson has officially left his sparkly vampire past far behind him. The trailer for one of those movies, The Rover, was released Thursday, and it finds the Twilight actor bloodied and desperate in post-apocalyptic Australia. A mysterious criminal named Eric (Guy Pearce) drags Pattinson's Reynolds around the dusty, barren landscape, searching for Reynold's brother and his rival gang. The music is eerie, the cinematography dark and the tone ominous. But we're treated to a a few seconds of Pattinson shirtless, so it seems the »

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, here you go.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 the 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 go to any lengths to take back the »

There was slight disappointment for those awaiting "Animal Kingdom" director David Michôd's buzzy post-apocalyptic revenge thriller "The Rover" this morning -- it didn't nab a slot in the Cannes Competition. Nevertheless, it will premiere at the festival in the Midnight Screenings section, and if this stark, moody and decidedly unsettling first trailer is anything to go by, that might be the right place for it. We've now had glimpses of both Cannes entries starring Robert Pattinson -- the other being David Cronenberg's Competition entry "Maps to the Stars" -- and this looks the grabbier one. That said, this looks like a most impressive showcase for Guy Pearce, playing a man hunting down the gang who stole his car in the Australian Outback. Michôd doesn't appear to have lost the brutal command of atmosphere, balancing latent and not-so-latent violence, that he wielded in his debut -- count me very excited for this indeed. »

While already having numerous short films under his belt, filmmaker David Michôd made a big splash in 2010 with Animal Kingdom, his first directorial feature film, which he also wrote. Having also co-written Hesher, many people in the film community were interested to see where Michôd would go next, which led to excitement at the announcement that the filmmaker was working on a new project. Titled The Rover, Michôd once again directs from a screenplay he has written, working with a cast that includes Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Anthony Hayes, and Scoot McNairy. A new trailer for the film, which will make its debut at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.

So-called existential westerns are making something of a comeback in recent years, with many of them taking place in the Australian outback. Guy Pearce already appeared in one such drama: 2005′s The Proposition. Now, he’s starring in The Rover, a Cannes-selected film from David Michod, the director of Animal Kingdom. Today, in preparation for the film’s premiere, the first trailer has landed online.
Following the collapse of the western economic system, Australia has become a land of criminals and desperate men, drawn to its mineral resources. Pearce plays loner Eric, a traveler in the Australian outback who loses his car to a gang of criminals. Left behind by the gang is the wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson), whom Eric forces to help him track the gang across desolate land.
