Media Reactions to "The Rover" Trailer

Media Reactions to "The Rover" Trailer

Movies
A few years ago Australian director David Michôd made waves with his gritty drama Animal Kingdom, about a young man caught up in the middle of his criminal family. Not only did that film go on to critical acclaim, but it even made an appearance at the Oscars when Jacki Weaver was nominated for Best Supporting Actress (Meliaa Leo won for The Fighter). Now Michôd is back with another film, The Rover, and it looks like it may be one of the most gripping films of the year.
Starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, The Rover is a twist on your standard postapocalyptic story. It's not set in some zombie- or virus-stricken world, it just takes place a decade after society as we know it has collapsed. It then follows a nomadic man (Pearce) who is seeking revenge on a gang of thieves who stole his car, and to get that revenge he's willing to team up with one of their own (Pattinson).
As you can see from the below trailer, The Rover looks like a beautifully photographed, intense tale of one man who decides to say screw it all and chase down the men who took the one thing he had left. And if you're the type who instantly dismisses Pattinson because of his Twilight days, this is further evidence as to why he shouldn't simply be ignored.
The Rover will be playing at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. It opens in New York and L.A. on June 13, and then expands across America on June 20.

The Film Stage
A few days before the first wave of Cannes competition titles are announced, here’s our initial look at one surefire example and, no less, one of our most-anticipated 2014 titles: Maps to the Stars, in which David Cronenberg makes a Cosmopolis reunion with Robert Pattinson and Sarah Gadon — in addition to teaming with directorial newcomers Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, and Olivia Williams — for an examination of Hollywood culture, the treatment of child stars having long been noted as a key component of Bruce Wagner‘s screenplay.
This first preview — almost more in line with a sales piece than some official glimpse — offers a closer look at some of the plot machinations, what’s on display possibly working (early as this guess is) in some harmony with A History of Violence. All else looks and feels like a late Cronenberg picture — the return of cinematographer Peter Suschitzky ought to play some part in as much — and for yours truly, who considers the aforementioned 2012 picture among his greatest, a continuation (or “evolution,” as is probably more fitting) is one of many signs which point to one of 2014′s most essential pictures. Here’s one that can’t come soon enough.

Empire : The 10 Most Exciting Movies At Cannes 2014

Between May 14 and 25, the Cannes International Film Festival will play host to some of the most gifted and glamorous faces in movieland. Empire, whose face likes to think it combines both qualities into one geeky visage, will be there covering every gala, screening and soirée worth physically breaking into. But which movies will hoover up the most attention in the Midi? Our very own Damo-on-the-spot, Damon Wise, has picked his ten to keep an eye out for.

MAPS TO THE STARS
Category: In Competition
Director: David Cronenberg
Cronenberg has been a frequent visitor to the Croisette since Crash made the competition in 1996. Maps To The Stars – written by Bruce Wagner, screenwriter and author of the eccentric Oliver Stone-producer mini-series Wild Palms – promises to be the kind of fractured genre riff that has characterised the director's recent work (notably A History Of Violence), dealing with a dysfunctional Hollywood family. Evan Bird, playing a troubled former child star, heads up an impressive cast that includes Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska and Robert Pattinson.


THE ROVER
Category: Midnight Screening
Director: David Michôd
David Michôd, who made a big splash with his debut, Animal Kingdom, has been tucked away in the Midnight Screening strand, which suggests that his latest film, ostensibly another crime drama, might not quite be what it seems. Though you wouldn't know it from the trailer, The Rover is actually sci-fi variant set in a post-apocalyptic world, this time starring Guy Pearce as the title character, who teams up with Robert Pattinson to track down the gang that stole from him.

Dane DeHaan Talks about "Life" with Independent

Dane DeHaan Talks about "Life" with Independent

Dane DeHaan has revealed that he made no attempt to become friends with Robert Pattinson before they started filming Life.

The Amazing Spider-Man actor stars alongside the Twilight heartthrob in Anton Corbijn's drama, focusing on the friendship between Life photographer Dennis Stock (Pattinson) and Hollywood icon James Dean (De Haan).

"It's an interesting relationship that they have. They do become close in the film, and they do become friends, but they're not friends from the start," he said.

"So what we did is we didn't try to make any sort of friendship beforehand. We got there and that's when our friendship started. So as it was happening on screen, it was also happening in real life."

The 28-year-old said they bonded on set, adding: " He's a really nice guy. He's totally chill and he's fun to hang out with, and he's fun to be on set with. We had a great time."

Sir Ben Kingsley and Joel Edgerton also star in Life, which wrapped shooting on April 1.

"We just finished a week and a half ago," Dane said.

Life, which is now in post-production, is expected to be released later this year.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), the film stars Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Walton Goggins.

American Ultra is a fast-paced action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

A PalmStar/Likely Story/Circle of Confusion production, the film is produced by Anthony Bregman, Kevin Frakes, Raj Brinder Singh, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio, with Ray Angelic as executive producer. Jason Constantine, President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions and Eda Kowan, SVP of Acquisitions, will oversee the project on behalf of Lionsgate.
