Check out this first new image of Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in David Michod's "The Rover," the Aussie director's follow-up to 2010's critically praised "Animal Kingdom." That movie also starred Pearce and broke out actors Joel Edgerton ("The Great Gatsby"), Ben Mendelsohn ("Killing Them Softly") and Jackie Weaver ("Silver Linings Playbook").

This thriller is set in the South Australian desert, and went into production in early February, with filming set to complete in mid-March. Scoot McNairy ("Argo," "Killing Them Softly"), Susan Prior and Anthony Hayes (both "Animal Kingdom" alum), Gillian Jones ("Oscar and Ludinda") and David Field ("Chopper") co-star.

Here's the official synopsis:

The film is set in the Australian desert, in a dangerous and damaged near future. Eric (Pearce) has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him when a gang of desperate criminals steals his last possession.  Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, forced along the way to enlist the help of Rey (Pattinson), the naïve and injured junior member of the gang  who was left behind in the chaos of the gang’s most recent robbery.

    This looks pretty good. Really enjoyed Animal Kingdom.
