NEW exclusive clip of Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce in ‘The Rover’   1 comment

Here’s a first clip of ‘The Rover’ with Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce

From Indiewire

Australian director David Michôd’s (“Animal Kingdom”) much-anticipated crime drama “The Rover” will premiere out of competition at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, but before then, here’s an exclusive clip featuring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.

In the scene we see an intimate and angry conversation between the Pearce character, who seeks revenge from a group of dangerous criminals after they steal his last possession, and Pattinson, one of the criminals left behind after being shot.

In addition to the clip, Michôd also gave an exclusive statement to Indiewire. Check them both out below. A24 opens “The Rover” June 13.

“The Australian Outback of The Rover is a world ten years after a great Western economic collapse. It’s a near future of social and economic decay. Services, utilities, law and order have fallen into dangerous disrepair. And yet people from all corners of the world have come to this place to work the mines that feed the new world alignment, that feed the great powerhouses of this, the Asian century.

The world of the movie, as such, mirrors the American and Australian gold rushes of the 19th century. People are drawn to the land’s mines and with them come the leeches, the refuse, the hustlers and criminals who hope to exploit the mines’ margins.

This isn’t a complete collapse of society – it’s an inversion of present-day global power dynamics. This is Australia as resource-rich Third World country. This is the violence and unrest of contemporary Sierra Leone or the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

And at the centre of this world are two men – one, a murderously embittered Australian man, a former soldier who has lost his farm and his family; the other, a simple and naive American boy, too young to remember a time when things were anything other than what they are.”

‘Maps to the Stars’ and ‘The Rover’ in Cinemateaser Magazine

Maps to the Stars




Excerpts: Actress Sarah Gadon raved about the curious experience that this film was, still a mystery for her. “(…) The script is incredibly bright. It’s mostly a very violent satir of Hollywood. It’s very strange for me to find myself in the heart of the system after filming something so dark and so nasty.”
(…) Between genre film and lampoon, film noir and soap opera, we hope Maps to the Stars is going to shake up festivalgoers. We would especially love to have there, with this tortuous tale about Hollywood, a kind of Mulholland Drive 2.0. All the ingredients seem brought together, to recreate the confused experienced felt during the presentation of the feature film by Lynch in 2001 on the Croisette. Cannes loves nothing more than films that escape us. If Cosmopolis was probably too theoretical and verbose, Maps to the Stars seems rather full of excesses and flesh, a film whose apparent madness probably hides unexpected nooks and shadows so dear to the director. We hope the famous Cronenberg’s maps to the stars doesn’t take us where we would want to go.
