Explore the Timeline of the Collapse on A24's Official 'The Rover' Site

June 4, 2014

The Rover Website

"Fear the man with nothing left to lose." Simple, but perfect tagline for this film, it says it all without saying too much. A24 has launched a sleek new website for The Rover, the second film from Australian filmmaker David Michôd (of Animal Kingdom previously), a post-apocalyptic western thriller starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson. Designed by agency Column Five, the site features photos, video, and a "Timeline of the Collapse" and interactive "Remapping the Future" page, which tie into the backstory behind the world the film is set in; think of it like a modern Mad Max, in a way. I'm glad they provide a context - take a look.

Here's a few more screenshots of The Rover site - click either one below to go straight to the new website:

The Rover Website

10 years following the collapse of society, a loner tracks the gang who stole his car from a desolate town in the Australian outback with the forced assistance of a wounded guy left behind in the wake of the theft. Australian filmmaker David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) writes and directs The Rover, with a story credited to Joel Edgerton & Michôd. The film is described as an existential western following people from all corners of the world who have come out to the desert to scrape out an existence. Petty criminals, miscreants and hustlers thrive in the Australian Outback, a haven for felons yet again. A24 Films will release The Rover in theaters starting June 13th this summer. The film premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where I screened it and reviewed it in full. Worth seeing in theaters this summer. Visit the site:

      Yessum, seems like his first non-teen heart throb movie...Pierce is great ... enjoy all of his films, and Animal Kingdom was great, director has a gritty real-ness to his story telling..
