Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson in "The Rover."

An intense teaser trailer has arrived for David Michod's "The Rover," the much anticipated follow-up to the Aussie director's brilliant 2010 crime film "Animal Kingdom." Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson star. Watch below.

The film, which hits theaters this summer via A24, is set in an apocalyptic wasteland future, and centers on a man trekking across the unforgiving Australian dessert to locate his stolen car and its valuable contents. It's based on an original story by Michod and actor-collaborator Joel Edgerton.

Scoot McNairy ("Argo," "Killing Them Softly"), Susan Prior and Anthony Hayes (both "Animal Kingdom" alum), Gillian Jones ("Oscar and Ludinda") and David Field ("Chopper") also 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.

    All right! This looks interesting. I've waited for the next Michod's film. When is a release date?
