Today we have the trailer for the upcoming drama, "The Rover," a new film starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. Check it out below.
Plot: "The Rover" is set in the Australian desert in a dangerous and dysfunctional near future. Eric (Pearce) has left everything and every semblance of human kindness behind him. When his last possession, his car, is stolen by a gang of dangerous criminals, Eric sets off to track them down and is forced along the way to enlist the help of Reynolds (Pattinson), the naive member of the gang left behind in the bloody chaos of the gang's most recent escape.
The new movie is directed by David Michod (Animal Kingdom). A release date has yet to be set.
I will definitely see this.
Guy Pearce knows how to pick his roles, usually.
And if Robert Pattinson keeps going with roles like this, I think hes got potential.

Interesting concept, but casting Pattinson is a misfire. He has no acclaim outside Twilight and hasn't proven himself worthy of an audience outside that fan-base (I never saw Cosmopolis FWIW, and don't see why I should).
Some will argue his role In Rover is an attempt to build that worth, but to me it looks like he's merely playing the game for the sake of money, and I just can't past his previous gay vampire role or that annoying crooked nose.
