Looks cool. Meh tagline. ''But can this face still sell movie tickets?'' is the question lingering over this poster. C

As a keen student of the Mad Max movies, I’m never sure whether the Australian countryside will be the best, or the absolute worst, place to hole up come the inevitable apocalypse. And the trailer for the new, Cannes-selected film The Rover only makes the issue murkier.

Written and directed by David Michôd — the filmmaker responsible for 2010’s wonderful Animal Kingdom — the movie stars Guy Pearce as a loner wandering through the Aussie outback a decade after civilization has collapsed, and Robert Pattinson as a man he forces to help track down the gang who steals his car.
