The Rover: Guy Pearce Threatens Robin PattinsonJune 13th, 2014
In this trailer for The Rover, we see Guy Pearce’s first encounter with Robert Pattinson in a post-apocalyptic world. And we’d like to point out that Pattinson has looked better in other films — it looks like his character has been through some tough times. The Rover is Michôd’s anticipated follow up to Animal Kingdom and tells a grim tale of revenge in a post-apocalyptic world.
A post-apocalyptic western about a lone wolf drifter who joins forces with a wounded man to pursue a sadistic band of thieves. A decade after the collapse of the western world, Australia has become a lawless wasteland. As desperate outsiders pillage the country’s precious mineral resources, taciturn Eric (Guy Pearce) travels from town to town searching for signs of life. Then, one day, Eric falls prey to vicious thieves who steal his car. In the process of making their getaway, the thieves abandon Rey (Robert Pattinson), their wounded partner-in-crime. Meanwhile Eric vows to reclaim his most treasures possession by whatever means necessary, and forces Rey to help him track down the men who left him for dead.
