‘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, 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 »
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.

The Rover, David Michôd's highly anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, is set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (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 (Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him. Michôd also wrote the film »
The U.S. will be represented by two films in the 67th annual Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or competition: Actor Tommy Lee Jones—who co-wrote the screenplay and directs fest select “The Homesman”—will also be acting alongside Meryl Streep, Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld (“True Grit”), Miranda Otto (“Rake”), and William Fichtner (“The Dark Knight”) in this year’s competition. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher,” featuring a starry cast that includes Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo, also made the Cannes competition cut. The full lineup was announced by Thierry Frémaux in Paris this morning; it’s his seventh year as the festival’s general delegate. Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars,” starring Robert Pattinson—also in another Cannes select with Guy Pearce titled “The Rover”—is also in competition, as is fellow Canadian Atom Egoyan’s thriller “The Captive,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Rosario Dawson. »
A few years ago Australian director David Michôd made waves with his gritty drama Animal Kingdom, about a young man caught up in the middle of his criminal family. Not only did that film go on to critical acclaim, but it even made an appearance at the Oscars when Jacki Weaver was nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Meliaa Leo won for The Fighter). Now Michôd is back with another film, The Rover, and it looks like it may be one of the most gripping films of the year. Starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, The Rover is a twist on your standard postapocalyptic story. It's not set in some zombie- or virus-stricken world, it just takes place a decade after society as we know it has collapsed. It then follows a nomadic man (Pearce) who is seeking revenge...

We have a new trailer for you to check out for Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson's post-apocalyptic thriller The Rover. We also have a couple of new posters for it as well. This looks like it's going to be a great film. I'm definitely putting it on my must watch list. I enjoy movies like this. There's nothing wrong with watching a good, depressing movie to give you a pick-me-up! Also, Pearce is just a fantastic actor, and he doesn't star in enough movies, so I'll watch anything he's in.
The story is "set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap.

The newly released trailer, celebrating the movie's upcoming Cannes debut is just as gorgeous and bleak as the first and while it hits on the same scenes of the teaser, it expands those familiar snippets to include more of the story and dialogue rather than simply Guy Pearce's monologue. It's a thing of quiet and brutal beauty, the story of a man so desperate to keep the memory of the past alive that he endangers his life to retrieve his last possession and along the way, it look [Continued ...] »
A24 has been having a good decade. The fledgling studio first formed back in 2012, and since then has already made a name for itself among other indie production companies thanks to a swath of critical successes – some controversial (Spring Breakers), others less so (The Spectacular Now). In 2014 alone, A24 can already claim the likes of Enemy, Under the Skin, and – soon enough – the upcoming Locke to its credit; that’s an elliptical release slate for sure, but one that may prove even more successful than last year’s.
Now, they’re adding The Rover to their schedule, and the movie looks more bleak than oblique courtesy of a desolate Australian desert backdrop and a throughline of justice. It doesn’t hurt that the cast is in full-on gritty mode; a bearded and scowling Guy Pearce ...

The trailer for "The Rover," starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce, is here. It's the latest film from director David Michôd, and it's a post-apocalyptic crime drama. Pattinson plays Rey, a young gang member abandoned by his pals after he's injured (harsh, guys. Way harsh.). He meets Eric (Pearce), who, conveniently, is searching for that very same gang after they steal from him. Watch yourself, gang members — guy looks pissed. The trailer for the ...
