First Look: Guy Pearce Threatening Robert Pattinson in 'The Rover'
If seeing Robert Pattinson step outside his sparkly vampire self from The Twilight Saga for more serious dramas like Water for Elephants and Cosmopolis just didn't sit right with you, then we have a new film that might work. David Michôd made a splash with his low key Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom starring Joel Edgerton, and now he's back with The Rover. The film sees Pattinson in the middle of the desert sometime in the near future after a financial collapse has sent many away from the city to all corners of the world to try and live on as little as they can. Many have become hustlers, petty criminals and other seedy characters and Guy Pearce looks to be one of them in this first look photo from the film. Look below!
Here's a first look at David Michôd's The Rover from EW:
David Michôd writes and directs The Rover (with the story coming from the director's Animal Kingdom star Joel Edgerton), an existential western following people from all corners of the world have come out to the desert to scrape out an existence. Petty criminals, miscreants and hustlers have sprouted from people effected by a worldwide financial collapse and the Australian Outback has become a haven for felons yet again. Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson and Scoot McNairy star in the film which doesn't yet have a release date. Stay tuned for more information and a trailer sometime down the road. Anyone interested in this?

I liked Water for Elephants. Pattinson was good in it. Guy Pearce on the other hand... I liked him as Mike Young in Neighbours back in the 1980s, but I've never liked him much on the big screen. He doesn't have movie star actor quality IMO.
