The Rover Trailer - Sci-fi with Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce from the Director of Animal Kingdom
The future ain't a happy place

Australian director David Michod made a big impression with Animal Kingdom a couple of years back and he's going bigger for his follow up.

The Rover is set in a near future Australia that is basically destroyed, a non-specific post apocalyptic setting that we're quite happy to see. When a gang steals Guy Pearce's ride, he gets a little bit testy and brings the brother of one of the gang members (Robert Pattinson) on a journey to get his stuff back.

Taking the sensibilities of Animal Kingdom and thrusting them into a post-world setting in the Outback. Colour us intrigued. And the cracking trailer helps to cement that impression, with a little help from W.B. Yeats...

The Rover also stars Scoot McNairy and will premiere at Cannes in May before arriving in the US in June and Europe in August 2014.
