‘The Rover’ Gets a New Trailer, New Posters and a Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival

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.

Just announced, ‘The Rover’ will premiere at Cannes this year, which sadly most of us won’t be able to make. The good news is that we have the brand new trailer for you right here, along with two new posters for the film. Here’s a quick refresher course if this is the first you’re hearing of all this:

‘The Rover’ is set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey (Robert Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him.

‘Animal Kingdom’ – which introduced us to Joel Edgerton and earned an Oscar nomination for Jacki Weaver – was fantastic and Michod has proved himself to be a director to keep your eyes on (he’s already working on his next project with Brad Pitt). Also, it’s another impressive right turn from Pattinson, who continues to show he can do solid work that doesn’t involve playing an angsty vampire.

After its debut next month at Cannes, ‘The Rover’ opens in New York and Los Angeles on June 13 and nationwide on June 20.
