Amidst the flashing cameras, fans and buzz of The Rover’s Australian premiere, its star Robert Pattinson was really just missing the Outback.
Pattinson, his co-star Guy Pearce and director David Michod walked the red carpet in Sydney on Saturday night for Michod’s much-anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, which is screening as part of Sydney Film Festival.
Hundreds of fans waited along the street for the Twilight star, some who had been there since early that morning.
The anticipation seemed to be too much for one, who climbed over the barrier for a closer look, before realising it probably wasn’t a great idea to stand in the middle of three lanes of CBD street traffic.
When the stars turned up, one lane outside the State Theatre was blocked off to allow Pattinson and Pearce to meet and take photographs with the crowd. Cars crawled past as people, realising what the fuss was about, pressed against windows with their phones trying to get a snap.
