Here is your first look at The Rover, David Michôd’s follow-up to his hugely successful Australian crime thriller Animal Kingdom.
Michôd has reunited with his Kingdom star Guy Pearce for this one, which looks just as stressful and grim as their last collaboration.
In the flick, Pearce plays a man searching for a prized possessions in a dystopian wasteland.
Another of AK‘s alum, Joel Edgerton, is involved: he helped conceive the story.
Robert Pattinson and Scoot McNairy co-star in the picture.
It arrives in Australian cinemas July 31, 2014. Will be interesting to see if this local production can similarly make a splash at the Academy Awards just as Michôd’s last flick did.
