A new trailer and two new posters have debuted for ANIMAL KINGDOM director David Michôd's new post-apocalyptic thriller THE ROVER. Starring Guy Pearce as a hardened loner in a desolate future who forces a gang member (Robert Pattinson) to help him find the men who stole his car, the film has a bit of a MAD MAX vibe to it, although nowhere near as flashy or cartoony. Still, it looks dark, intriguing, and rich with ugliness, which fits well when you're dealing with a lawless, savaged future.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

THE ROVER, David Michod's highly anticipated follow-up to ANIMAL KINGDOM, is set in a world 10 years following the collapse of society. The rule of the law has disintegrated and life is cheap. The film follows hardened loner Eric (Pearce) as he travels the desolate towns and roads of the outback. When a gang of thieves steals his car they leave behind a wounded Rey (Pattinson) in their wake. Forcing Rey to help track the gang, Eric will go to any lengths to take back the one thing that still matters to him. Michod also wrote the film based on a story he conceived with Joel Edgerton.

I still have yet to see ANIMAL KINGDOM (I know, I know, don't yell at me), but hear nothing but great things. I've always been a fan of "road movies" as well. There's something great about the journey, taking two characters from one location to another and running them through a whole series of run-ins, coincidences, accidents, and all manner of collisions with all manner of people along the way. THE ROVER feels like a good candidate for that model.

THE ROVER opens in theaters on June 20, 2014.

OH CRAP - this looks fantastic. Good pieces of cinema are so rare nowadays. And shout out to Rob Pattinson for being the post apocalyptic Mac Miller.

I love me a hard-edged, post-apocalyptic thriller. Also, this looks to be the one movie that will finally allow Robert Pattinson to move away from Twilight's shadow.
