While the premise of a man hellbent on revenge against a gang of criminals who stole his car might sound a tad comical, the first teaser trailer has arrived to prove it is anything but. Add to that the film is directed by David Michod, who directed the superb Animal Kingdom, and add an impressive cast of the always excellent Guy Pearce, Scoot McNairy and, erm, Robert Pattinson, and you have a real dark thriller to look forward to.
The first teaser trailer can be found below, and I can’t wait to see what this film has in store!
The Rover is written and directed by David Michod, and co-written by Joel Edgerton. The cast includes Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy, Nash Edgerton, David Field and Anthony Hayes.
The Rover is set in the Australian desert in a dangerous and dysfunctional near future. Eric has left everything and every semblance of human kindness behind him. When his last possession, his car, is stolen by a gang of dangerous criminals, Eric sets off to track them down and is forced along the way to enlist the help of Reynolds, the naive member of the gang left behind in the bloody chaos of the gang’s most recent escape.
