While already having numerous short films under his belt, filmmaker David Michôd made a big splash in 2010 with Animal Kingdom, his first directorial feature film, which he also wrote. Having also co-written Hesher, many people in the film community were interested to see where Michôd would go next, which led to excitement at the announcement that the filmmaker was working on a new project. Titled The Rover, Michôd once again directs from a screenplay he has written, working with a cast that includes Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Anthony Hayes, and Scoot McNairy. A new trailer for the film, which will make its debut at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.
