Back in January, we posted the first trailer for David Michôd’s post-apocalyptic revenge film The Rover, starring my longtime man-crush Guy Pearce as well as Robert Pattinson, who has been doing a hell of a job distancing himself from his Twilight roots these past couple of years. That first trailer for The Rover was slick, gritty, and moody.
This second trailer is even more appealing – perhaps even elevating it to my much coveted “most anticipated” position for this summer’s films.
Director Michôd is best known for directing 2010′s stellar crime drama Animal Kingdom. While he wrote the screenplay for The Rover with actor Joel Edgerton (Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty), his other writing credits include the pretty solid Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring Hesher and the very enjoyable horror short I Love Sarah Jane.
According to Twitch, it was recently announced as an Official Selection for the Cannes Film Festival before opening up in North American theaters on June 20, 2014.
Leave your thoughts on the trailer (and Michôd’s other films) below!
