The first trailer for gritty, futuristic chase movie The Rover has debuted online.

Directed by David Michod (of hard-hitting Aussie flick Animal Kingdom fame), the film stars Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson as a hardened loner and wounded gang member respectively, who collide after Pearce is accosted by a vicious gang of thieves.

Pearce’s Eric forces Pattinson’s Rey to help him track the gang (and his car), making their way across a landscape ravaged by 10 years of lawlessness following the collapse of society as we know it.

We were big fans of Animal Kingdom here at Movie Ramblings, so this one has piqued our interest.

The Rover lands in UK cinemas on August 22.
