Robert Pattinson in The Rover Available on DVD Blu-Ray (video)

25 August 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Robert Pattinson’s dystopian thriller, “The Rover,” one of his best films yet and as far away from Edward Cullen as he can get, is now available for pre-order on DVD and Blu-Ray. It’s worth watching over and over. Rob has been searching post-”Twilight” for roles that take him in different places, and “The Rover” has taken him the farthest yet. He shot the picture with actor Guy Pearce in the harsh Australian outback [...] »

Recently, former Twilight Saga main man, Robert Pattinson, participated in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge ,which donates cash to help people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. His buddy and superstar actor, Zac Efron, called him out to do it, so he accepted the challenge (video below). In the clip, Rob got ice dumped on his head and water sprayed at him continuously as he tried to name the people he wanted to call out for the challenge. It turns out that he challenged: Guy Pearce, his Maps to the Stars co-star, Mia Wasikowska, and Marilyn Manson! The video was actually originally posted to Zac Efron's Youtube Channel. »

Neighbours stars turned pop singers: five of the best

Aussie anthems: Kylies Cant Get You Out of My Head

Its all too easy to poke fun at soap-turned-pop stars, but no one predicted that legitimate Hollywood outfit Guy Pearce would be next in line. The former Neighbours actor cum A-lister is set to release his album Broken Bones on 7 November, with live appearances in Melbourne and Sydney to follow.

First single Storm is surprisingly (for those unschooled in Pearces musical passions) good. The track falls squarely in the Aussie singer-songwriter category, somewhere between Augie March and the John Butler Trio, with a funky baseline sliding playfully under Pearces croon.

As well as a look back at some of the numerous highlights (and occasional, but still beloved – at least by Dom – lowlights) of the tragically late Robin Williams’ phenomenal and sprawling career, the gang also put their film critic hats on for reviews of The Congress and Guy Pearce Grimaces: The Movie (Aka: The Rover).

Get wet with Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron and Shakira's Ice Bucket Challenge videos

20 August 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just when you thought we'd run out of celebrities to undertake the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, here come Robert Pattinson, Tom Cruise, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth, Shakira, Michael Jordan and more to prove you wrong. My personal favorite this round is Stephen King (nominated by the fantastically-creative Dave Grohl), mostly because the way he says "challenge" is really endearing. (Donate) Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale (nominated Robert Pattinson, Matthew McConaughey and "Howard Stern Show" Wack Packer Eric the Actor): Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie: Robert Pattinson (nominated Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska and Marilyn Manson): Michael Jordan (nominated Phil Jackson and his "Dream Team" teammates): Derek Jeter (nominated Hannah Davis, Kevin Connolly and Michael Jordan):   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); = id; js.src = "//"; fjs. »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

20 August 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung


Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

It’s been nearly ten years since we last visited Basin City and some feel that the decade absence has dampened a lot of the hype and interest in its sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. But the directing team of Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were not going to let that stop them as they bring perhaps the most popular book from the Sin City cannon to the big screen with some old faces, some new »

Second Opinion – The Rover (2014)

19 August 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Rover, 2014.

Directed by David Michôd.

Starring Guy Pearce, Robert PattinsonScoot McNairy and Tawanda Manyimo.


10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves’ brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.

The title card tells us we’re in ‘Australia, 10 years after the collapse’. Guy Pearce’s Eric sits in his car, a nondescript BMW, as the wind outside howls through the open desert landscape. The world outside the car is desolate, dry, and dust clings to the window like a reminder that it will never go away. This, we will learn, is Eric’s sanctuary and safe place and there aren’t many of them.

When Eric leaves his car and gets a drink, another car loses control, crashes, and is stuck. The three men inside have guns, »

Following on from its UK release this past Friday, Entertainment One has posted the first five minutes of David Michod’s The Rover online, and we have it for you below after the official synopsis…

When a brutal gang of thieves steals his car and only remaining possession, they leave behind the wounded Rey (Robert 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. »

True Horror: Real Life Horror Stories On Screen

18 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Thanks to a somewhat suspect series of sub-genres born out of horror cinema’s tendency to descend into an exploitative pit of B-Movie mediocrity, to many the genre at large has lost its bite over recent decades. Horror fans stand shaking atop a perilous precipice, debating whether to plummet into one of James Wan’s undeniably entertaining demon infested households – littered with creepy kids and their even creepier fondness for jump-scare inducing toy antiquities – or to skip dinner and experience a Smörgåsbord of torture porn delicacies. Thankfully studios aren’t as willing to give Eli Roth money these days and this ugly trend has been somewhat curbed – minus the upcoming The Green Inferno, which, in all fairness, looks rather tasty. Also, don’t forget the wealth of found footage which lay hidden in darkened attics and dank cellars, because in an age of Hi-def, Blu-ray movies and instant streaming services, »

Understanding Plot Holes – Misdiagnosis & Bad Lexicon

17 August 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’ve all been there. A group of friends or perhaps colleagues, at a bar around the block from a cinema or in your office rec room, chewing the cud about movies. One particular film comes up in the discussion, most likely a big release. Conversation turns to debate, since one of your group loves said picture and another loathes it. The more the fan sings its praises, the stauncher the naysayer’s protest becomes. With debate coming close to evolving into an argument, the critic goes for the home run strike by throwing out the gamechanging claim. “It’s full of plot holes” they declare.

Sometimes the fan will be silenced, the other members of the group may nod in agreement or realization. The idea has been planted in their heads, and they would have to go watch the film to disprove the critic. Even if they did, they »

Watch: First Six Minutes of 'The Rover' Featuring Guy Pearce

15 August 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

David Michod's The Rover is one of the best films of 2014 so far, easily. In my review I gave the film an "A" and ended the review with, "If you're a fan of cinema, you have to see this movie. Sit with it, don't rush it, let it slowly wrap you up and tear you apart before blowing you away in the end." amz asin="B00M7DIK5A" size="small"Within the review I also set the stage for the film's opening moments, which have now been officially released by A24. Here's how I described things: Here we begin with Eric (Guy Pearce), a drifter, driving the lonely highways and stopping for a brief respite and a drink. Without saying a word he walks through a dilapidated building, sits and keeps to himself. Next, a truck is speeding down the same highway. A man (Scoot McNairy) in the back »

Watch: Guy Pearce Doesn't Give Up In First 6 Minutes From 'The Rover'

15 August 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lord knows we've been trying to get everyone to see David Michod's "The Rover." Not only did it rank on our Most Underrated And Underseen Films Of 2014 So Far, but the excellent work of Dp Natasha Braier placed her on our On The Rise 2014: Cinematographers To Watch. In short, this film boasts a tremendous amount of talent, but if you still need another nudge to check it out, here's a generous helping. The first six minutes of the movie are now online, and it's a helluva opening. When Guy Pearce's car gets stolen by a band of thugs in the dusty, arid, not-too-distant future, he hunts them down with singleminded intensity. This may be a car chase, but the sequence builds character. And sorry, Robert Pattinson fans, the actor doesn't enter the movie until a little later, hence he's not in this clip. Check out the video below »

Film Review: 'The Rover'

15 August 2014 3:39 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Australian director David Michôd turned heads back in 2010 with his superb debut feature Animal Kingdom, an intense, intertwining drama set within a Melbourne crime family. An ambitious and sophisticated work for such a relatively inexperienced filmmaker, Michôd clearly felt a palate cleanser was what was called for from his follow-up, The Rover (2014). A post-apocalyptic road movie that divided the critics at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this minimalist sophomore outing follows two characters - Guy Pearce's Eric and Robert Pattinson's Rey - as they make their way across the outback. Tonally intriguing, Michôd's latest poses numerous questions but withholds almost all of the answers.

Movie Review – The Rover (2014)

15 August 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Rover, 2014.

Directed by David Michôd.

Starring Guy Pearce, Robert PattinsonScoot McNairy, and Tawanda Manyimo.


10 years after a global economic collapse, a hardened loner pursues the men who stole his only possession, his car. Along the way, he captures one of the thieves’ brother, and the duo form an uneasy bond during the dangerous journey.

Movies like The Rover do not come around often and some would argue that they don’t come often enough. But this year alone we have seen this type of story told by Out of the Furnace and Blue Ruin to almost better effect. That’s not to say you should discredit The Rover as some other movies have a similar vibe, because this is a movie that demands to be seen.

Guy Pearce is at an all-time best as the quiet and stoic Eric who lives his peaceful life in an economic »

14 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth Podcast goes down under….

Flickering Myth deputy editor Luke Owen sat down with Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson and David Michôd to talk about The Rover, released in the UK tomorrow.

Read our ★★★★ review here.

“The film is set in the Australian desert, in a dangerous and damaged near future. Eric (Pearce) has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him when a gang of desperate criminals steals his last possession. Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, forced along the way to enlist the help of Rey (Pattinson), the naïve and injured junior member of the gang who was left behind in the chaos of the gang’s most recent robbery.”

Featuring alongside Pearce and Pattinson in the cast of The Rover are David Field (Chopper), Gillian Jones (Oscar and Lucinda), Scoot McNairy (Argo) and Animal Kingdom stars Susan Prior and Anthony Hayes. »

Down Under Dystopias – ‘The Rover’ And Other Nightmares From The Far Side Of The World

14 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Rover opens in UK cinemas this week, bringing a welcome note of despair and post-meltdown male posturing to our baking hot summer. Featuring a memorable lead performance from Guy Pearce and strong support from Robert Pattinson the film follows in a long tradition of Antipodean sagas involving social decay and dog-eat-dog. To celebrate the latest evolution of this warped branch of their industry, let’s take a petrol-fuelled, sweat-drenched look at some intense offerings from Australia and New Zealand. If you associate these lands with Home And Away and Lord Of The Rings (or maybe even Flight Of The Conchords) prepare yourself for a shock…

Mad Max (1979)

Though the makers distance themselves from him, The Rover bears the hallmarks of tortured avenger Max Rockatansky. Dusty tracks, speeding cars, a broken soul and a total lack of decency – David Michôd’s movie realizes these qualities admirably, but director George Miller »

The Rover review: Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson in sparse thriller

13 August 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: David Michôd; Screenwriter David Michôd; Starring: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy, Gillian Jones, Anthony Hayes; Running time: 103 mins; Certificate: 15

Having made his staggeringly assured debut with the brooding ensemble thriller Animal Kingdom in 2010, writer-director David Michôd strips things down to the bone for his sophomore feature, a near two-hander set against all-encompassing desert. The Rover takes place on the Australian outback in a not-too-distant future where Western civilisation has collapsed in upon itself, and only the dregs of society, law and order remain.

Guy Pearce's enigmatic drifter Eric is a man purpose-built for this muted apocalypse: his needs are few, and his killer instinct is sharp. But his battered and dusty car, for reasons that remain mysterious up until the film's very final shot, is the one thing Eric has left to lose, and when it's stolen at random by a gang he sets out to recover it at all costs. »
