THE ROVER Full Trailer and Posters
Hot on the heels of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup announcement, A24 Films has released the full length trailer for David Michod’s The Rover, a post-apocalyptic western thriller starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.
The full theatrical trailer shows even more of the story than the initial teaser in late January and features Pearce as a loner who is associated with an abandoned drifter (Pattinson) after the man is carjacked and left to die by his brother.
Co-written by Michod and Joel Edgerton, the story looks like one packed with a grim sense of place, and damn, it looks awesome.
The Rover was just announced today as an Official Selection for the Cannes and hit theaters June 14th.
Check out the trailer and posters for this existential western and “fear the man with nothing left to lose.”
THE ROVER, David Michod’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. Michod also wrote the film based on a story he conceived with Joel Edgerton.
