In David Michôd's second full length feature film, 'The Rover' (his first was the surprise Australian hit 'Animal Kingdom,' which garnered Jacki Waver an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress), Guy Pearce is a khaki shorts-wearing misanthrope living in post-financial apocalypse Australia
Back in January, we brought you a teaser trailer for 'The Rover', the follow-up film from 'Animal Kingdom' director David Michod. It looked great. Today, we're back with the full trailer and news that, yes, it still looks great. So good, in fact, that it's an official selection of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
We don't envy the work Robert Pattinson has to do to shed the vampiric shadow the 'Twilight' franchise cast on his career, but the actor has done a remarkable job, so far. He's being smart and working with visionary directors like David Cronenberg on 'Cosmopolis' and David Michod (who directed the fantastic 2010 movie 'Animal Kingdom') on the upcoming film, 'The Rover.'
There are some directors who seem to be able to summon great casts with a simple snap of their fingers and the great David Cronenberg is one of them. His latest film, 'Maps to the Stars,' has not only secured financing, but a cast that includes Robert Pattinson, John Cusack and Julianne Moore.
The opening credits of 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' alternate between red and white images; seeping blood, spreading ice crystals. The symbolism couldn't be clearer: bundle up, Twihards, it's going to be a long cold lonely winter. Here comes the sun, dawn is breaking, and with it the end of your beloved franchise. After this, no more sexy vampires and hunky werewolves. It's all over -- and now that it is all over, let's give 'Twilight' its due: as one of the absolute bats--- craziest blockbusters in Hollywood history.
