I have a feeling we’ll see The Rover on a lot of lists but Blackbook have started the ball rolling with their ’30 Most Anticipated Films of 2014′.
Here’s what they had to say about The Rover:
Director: David Michod, finally following up his outstanding 2010 debut, Animal Kingdom.
Concept: A loner tracks the gang who stole his car from a desolate town in the Australian outback.
Cast: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy.
The Skinny: Animal Kingdom was one of the most confident, assured debuts of the last decade, and I have a strong feeling this will cement Michod as one of the great modern auteurs. Also, Guy Pearce has a knack for appearing in cult classics (Memento, LA Confidential), and Pattinson showed surprising chops in 2012′s Cosmopolis. - DH
