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.'
