Filmmaker David Michôd impressed critics and audiences alike with his debut feature, the 2010 crime drama Animal Kingdom. We’ve spent the intervening years waiting to see what Michôd would come up with next, and we have an answer at last.
Today marks the official reveal of the first trailer for The Rover. The postapocalyptic thriller stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and offers up this suitably vague synopsis:
“Ten years following the collapse of society, a man will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him.”
The trailer itself doesn’t really help clarify what’s going on with the story, but we didn’t care because it looks awesome. A grizzled Guy Pearce broods and blasts his way through some dirt-strewn buildings alongside a fairly unrecognizable Robert Pattinson? Sign us up now.
There’s no official release date set for The Rover, but you should expect this to drop over the summer. Until then, watch the trailer above and let us know what you think.
