I was a big fan of David Michôd’s gritty crime movie “Animal Kingdom” from 2010. His follow up movie is the new Australian film “The Rover,” which looks amazing. From the trailer below, it looks like an updated version of the Australian cult classic “Wake In Fright.” The film is set in the future in the dangerous Australian Outback.
“In a dangerous near future in the Australian desert, Eric (Pearce) has left everything behind, but when his last possession is stolen by a gang of dangerous criminals, Eric sets off on a hunt to find them. Along the journey he enlists the help of Rey (Pattinson), the naïve and injured member of the gang, who was left behind.”
The crime film features Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy, Anthony Hayes, Gillian Jones, David Field, Susan Prior, Nash Edgerton, and Jamie Fallon as Colin the Gun Runner.
“The Rover” hits theaters in a limited release sometime this summer 2014.
