2014 “Most Anticipated Film” (or similar) Lists Made by ‘The Rover’ – COLLECTION & links (last update 4/23/14)

Film: The Rover Most Anticipated Film: 2014

While I don’t have a dedicated site on The Rover as I do on most of Robert Pattinson’s indie films since Cosmopolis (sites hyperlinked at right ->), I do post most major news and try to add value other ways for those interested in the film.

Hence, I’ve created this post collecting all ”most anticipated film” lists I’ve found that have included  The Rover. [FYI: I've also done this for Robert Pattinson's second film directed by David Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars.] I have 30 lists made- if a reader knows of one I’ve missed, please comment below or tweet @LFMoreFilmBlog.

Another way to gauge interest and anticipation in this film is the incredible buzz and positive reactions that happened when the teaser trailer of The Rover was released. Here are my two ROUNDUP collections on that.

[2/20/14 update:] David Michod’s The Rover teaser trailer first appeared on distributor A24 Films YouTube Site and is now profiled and ready to watch on its website. This post retains the link to the initial YouTube and a screencap of the teaser, but now links to the A24 website too.
When I first posted the Youtube below (vulture) right after it appeared it had 150 hits.

The buzz on this film- especially since the full official trailer was launched the same day it was announced as a Cannes 2014 Official Selection- has been truly amazing. Now we have IndieWire choosing it as its #1 most anticipated film of the summer.

David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis opened a lot of doors for Robert Pattinson back in 2012. Just before and after the film played at Cannes, Rob reported he was attached to somewhere between 8-10 films. These include auteur directors such as David Michôd, Werner Herzog, James Marsh, David Cronenberg, Anton Corbijn, and James Gray. This post was designed to help you (and me!) keep track.

Production Notes for ‘The Rover’ at FilmTV.it Site – Story/Characters/Filming Location

Film: The Rover

I learned of an informative Italian site this week when they tweeted me a link on Maps To The Stars (Robert Pattinson film directed by David Cronenberg- also to premiere at Cannes 2014) for new stills from that film (incl. first of Pattinson as ‘Jerome’).

I subsequently checked, and they have a page on The Rover. Here’s the main page link. Here’s story information from their production notes (under “other”) at the main page. Hope you find informative!


Production Notes


Directed by David Michôd and based on a story written by the director himself paired with Joel Edgerton, The Rover is set in Australia a decade after the collapse of the western economy, in a context in which the mines are still active and have attracted men more desperate and dangerous and where survival is a daily struggle. The protagonist of the story is Eric, a drifter who has left everything behind and who is full of anger at the theft by a gang of his car, the only thing he had left. His only chance of finding the car is given by Rey, one of the Mebra band which was abandoned after being injured. Forced by circumstances, the two men will pair up for a trip that no one could have predicted the outcome.

As I did with Robert Pattinson’s Maps To The Stars trailer that also came out this past week (both will have world premiere’s at Cannes!), I’ve create a transcript of The Rover trailer dialogue.
Background- the Story: “With society in decline, the rule of law has disintegrated and life is cheap. Hardened loner Eric (Pearce) travels the desolate towns and roads of the Australian outback.
