Following the initial teaser trailer earlier this year, A24 Films has now released the full length trailer for David Michôd’s The Rover. Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson take bromance to a riveting and gritty level in this official trailer. The haunted and grim Eric (Pearce) finds his bargaining chip in the southern-American manchild, Rey (Pattinson). The trailer paints a harsh world but one that is disturbingly recognizable. I can’t wait to see this film and what happens to men with nothing to lose.
The film was just announced today as an Official Selection for the Cannes Film Festival. You can see why in this incredible trailer for THE ROVER….
Excerpt poem “The Second Coming” by Yeats: Things fall apart. The center cannot hold. Anarchy is loosed upon the world.
Off camera voice: It’s over for you.
ERIC: I know that. Whatever you think is over for me was over a long time ago.
Man 1: Let’s go! Come on, come on, come on!
HENRY: Turn the car around.
Man 1: We’re not turning around. He’s gone.
HENRY: What do you mean he’s gone. He’s my brother!
Woman 1: That looks good. Is this man your friend?
ERIC: Tell me where your brother is.
REY: He’s going south, gone away from here. I’ll take you to him I promise.
ERIC: Your brother left you to die. He’s abandoned you out here to me. You don’t learn to fight, your death is going to come real soon.
ERIC: You should never stop thinking about a life you’ve taken. That’s the price you pay for taking it.
REY: I’m still in control here.
HENRY: What’s he doing?
Man 1: He ain’t giving up.
ERIC: Start talking to me!
Woman 2: What a thing to get worked up about in this day and age
REY: There’s no harm God wants to see me coming to.
ERIC: God feels nothing for you. The only thing that means anything right now is that I’m here and he’s not.
If you’re like me, you want to download that song in the trailer! It’s called Enter One by Sol Seppy.
