The Rover released a teaser trailer in January, and now the first full-length look at the film is here!
The movie, starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce, has been chosen as an Official Selection at Cannes Film Festival. It hits theaters in New York City and L.A. June 13 and goes nationwide June 20.
The Rover is set in the futuristic Australian outback. After a gang of criminals stole his sole possession, Eric (Pearce) goes on a mission to track his missing car down and enact justice. Along the way, he enlists the help of Rey (Pattinson), a naïve and injured gang member who was previously left for dead.
Directed and co-written by David Michôd, the crime drama also stars actors Scoot McNairy, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones, Susan Prior, Nash Edgerton, David Field, Jamie Fallon and Samuel F. Lee.
Before production began, Pattinson spoke to IndieWire about the movie. "It's a kind of a western. It's very existential. It's really interesting," he said. "I couldn't really explain to you what it's about but it's sort of about how much pain can the world take and how much disgust and cruelty before love dies."
