The Rover
Fear The Man With Nothing Left To Lose. So goes the tagline of David Michod's "The Rover" starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and with the film now headed to Cannes, A24 has dropped a new trailer and a couple of posters for the thriller. And yes, it looks pretty damn good.

Robert Pattinson’s clout-building continues in 2014 though it technically has barely begun. Pattinson’s post-“Twilight” career rehab started with David Cronenberg’s “Cosmopolis” and the film world took notice. Auteurs, perhaps needing a viable start to greenlight their projects, took notice too. Werner Herzog came knocking (“Queen Of The Desert”), James Gray (“The Lost City of Z”), Cronenberg again (“Maps to the Stars”), Anton Corbijn ("Life") and many others. One of the earliest adopters was Aussie filmmaker David Michôd who quickly cast him in “The Rover” opposite Guy Pearce.

The Rover
Four, far too long years have passed since David Michôd shook up the cinematic world with his nerve jangling gangland drama "Animal Kingdom," but it looks the wait has been worth it. The director is back with "The Rover," and judging by the first teaser trailer, he'll once again be putting you on the edge of your seat.

We gotta admit, we sort of forgot this one was happening, but we have to say, we're glad it is. It's coming on three years since David Michod made his mark with "Animal Kingdom," and now he's back with a thriller that goes to the great outdoors.

To say that Robert Pattinson has been filling his post-"Twilight" calendar with ambitious films would be an understatement. This weekend brings his trippy David Cronenberg odyssey "Cosmopolis," and over the past few weeks and months, the actor has signed on to a handful of interesting films, including "Mission: Blacklist" about the hunt for Saddam Hussein, Werner Herzog's historical tale "Queen of the Desert" and "Animal Kingdom" director David Michôd's "The Rover." And it's the latter about which the actor has shared some tantalizing details.

To say that Ben Wheatley has been striking while the iron is hot would be an understatement. The director arrived in a huge way last year with the cult fave "Kill List" and didn't waste much time with a follow up, arriving at the Cannes Directors' Fortnight this spring with black comedy "Sightseers." And now, he's already getting ready to roll on his next effort, "Freakshift."

There is no doubt that after making a huge statement with "Animal Kingdom," that Hollywood would be interested in Australian director David Michod. He was wishlisted for the Irish-American cop drama "Once Were Cops" and there was likely more than one project studo execs wanted to send his way. However, for this followup to the acclaimed crime family drama, Michod is staying in his native home, and working with a longtime collaborator instead.
