Four 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.

Starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, the story is set in war-torn future beset by financial collapse, and follows a man who trudges across the Australian desert to locate his stolen car and secure the mysterious cargo found inside. But obviously, that logline is barely half the story with this first look promising a stark tale of violence in the desolate outback. Based on a story by Michôd and actor Joel Edgerton, in short, it looks like our instincts were right in ranking this so highly on our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014.

"The Rover" opens this summer via A24. Watch below.

    Pattinson seems to be making seriously excellent choices in his life. I'm sure he'll have the last laugh.

    animal kingdom is (arguably) the best crime film ever made.

    this looks serious, hoping twilight can hang.

    Definitely intriguing.

    What is with the teaser trailers? Just release the full one. Animal Kingdom was just ok for me. I might go and see it although it will be for Pearce not campy vampire Pattinson

    Michod delivers. This looks dark and cool.

    Joel, are you a judge, so the guy act in twilight- why don't you wait and see the movie, also vampire pattinson got allot of other movies, did you ever see remember me, water for elephant or cosmopolis? why don;t you give the guy a chance, like the director!

    In Michod's defence, I would say he kind of cringes at that bit too.

  • Chet Thomas | January 29, 2014 8:28 PM

    yes, this is the only negative of the teaser.
