THE ROVER trailer/poster – Guy Pearce & Robert Pattinson in a gritty thriller from ANIMAL KINGDOM’s director


A24 has sent us the first trailer and poster for their film THE ROVER, from director David Michôd and starring Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy and Nash Edgerton. It’s safe to say Pattinson has actively been trying to do more diversified roles after the end of THE TWILIGHT SAGA film series, and this looks like a pretty engaging entry. If you never saw Michôd’s last film (ANIMAL KINGDOM), you missed out big time. This is a re-teaming of sorts for him and actor Guy Pearce, and it’s based on a story by Joel Edgerton (he and Pearce both starred in ANIMAL KINGDOM). Granted, the poster is pretty minimal, but the trailer may already be in the running for one of my favorites of the year. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
