‘The Rover’ Teaser Trailer: Guy Pearce Burns Down the Outback


Here’s a tip for your own survival: don’t steal Guy Pearce‘s car. Any joy you might get from it will be swallowed whole by the crushing debt you’ll endure as a result of your hospital bills.

Animal Kingdom writer/director David Michod knows this, and he’s gracefully created a reminder for all of us in the form of The Rover. The film features an idiotic gang that steals Pearce’s characters car, leaving their injured comrade (played by Robert Pattinson) behind and futilely hoping that Pearce won’t force Pattinson to help track them down for revenge. Guess what happens.

The teaser trailer for the film is a struck match. Angry and desperate, it’s an aggressive introduction to a world built by men who have nothing left to lose. Enjoy it, and ask Pearce nicely not to beat you to death next time you see him.
