First Trailer for 'The Rover' Starring Robert Pattinson Looks like 'The Road: Australia'
Ever since Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part II came out in 2012, Robert Pattinson has been on a quest to prove that there's more to him than sparkles and fangs. First, he agreed to play a role in Maps to the Stars , an artsy fartsy film that promises "a contemporary tale exploring the demons of our celebrity-obsessed society." That sounds like penance for wasting our time with tabloid coverage of his ever-fizzling relationship with film's most boring white girl. Or maybe he's just desperately trying to make use forget about his dramatic vampire-angst faces. Newsflash: we will never forget.
Now, His Vampiness will be starring in another mortal film, a dystopian thriller called Rover . Although the trailer for this film is exciting, it also seems to be The Road: Australia. Remember when The Road came out? We were all impressed by the dusty, desolate wasteland, and Viggo made us cry a few times by being so damn depressed about the end of the world.
Apparently, that wasteland existed in Australia all along, and if you add a few more people and a lot more guns to The Road, you seem to be left with Rover. Watch the trailer below, and try not picture Viggo walking past in the distance.
