Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in First Teaser for 'The Rover'

David Michod's searing, unsettling crime drama Animal Kingdom not only put him on the map, it put a spotlight on the entire Australian movie scene. In the process it introduced us to actors like Joel Edgerton, Ben Mendelsohn, and Jacki Weaver, while reconfirming just how amazing Guy Pearce can be at anything he sets a mind to. It's been four years since that film and now Michod is finally back another thriller, The Rover, and it looks mighty impressive.

Starring Pearce and Robert Pattinson, the post-apocalyptic flick takes place in the harsh Australian outback and centers on a man who must make his way across the desert to retrieve his stolen car and secure the mysterious cargo inside. Bleak, ominous, and obviously very violent, there's clearly a lot more going on than is suggested by the plot or is this footage. Good; hopefully the mystery can remain hidden until the film opens later this summer.
