Looking good, Rob! A new still from the ‘Twilight’ star’s futuristic Western hit the internet on Mar. 15, and proved that he wasn’t afraid to get a little dirty. Is it just us, or does he look pretty good all bloodied up?!
Robert Pattinson: Down & Dirty In ‘The Rover’
The new still, taken and posted by still photographer Matt Nettheim, is of the The Rover’s two main characters, Rob and Guy Pearce, in a bit of a scuffle. A scuffle that Rob appears to have lost, judging by the gun in his face.
Even though he got his butt kicked, we’re liking this side of R-Patz. He’s like a million times manlier than those underwear modeling photos!
Robert Pattinson: ‘The Rover’ Is A New Challenge
The new picture is just further confirmation of what we already knew — that this role is one of the grittiest Rob has ever played. Talking to Entertainment Weekly, the movie’s director David Michod said that Rob’s character is “quite troubled and damaged,” before adding that he’s also a “beautiful and naive soul.”
Overall, David is calling the movie “chillingly authentic and menacing” Rob has played challenging, off-beat characters before, but we still totally think of him as Edward Cullen. Maybe playing a down and dirty, complex character like this can change that. Our mouths are already watering with excitement to see this!
