‘The Rover’ trailer is finally here! On Jan. 29, director David Michod definitely transformed Robert Pattinson into sexy vamp to serious bad boy — watch the new trailer here!

Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce are about to blow up the big screen! The official trailer for The Rover is officially out, and we can see loud and clear that Rob has come a long way since his days as Edward Cullen. We can’t wait to see the new movie, coming out in summer 2014.

‘The Rover’ Full Trailer

In the trailer, we see Rob looking sexier than ever playing a bad boy. We can definitely see why director David Michod was positive Rob was right for the role.

“I knew that I wanted to see him,” David told the Sydney Morning Herald. “And we looked at quite a few people and a number of, you know, quite big names, and sure enough Rob came in and just straight away was my favorite.”

In the trailer, Guy is telling his story of a dangerous, lonely journey through the Australian desert. Rob is shown shirtless, bloody and ready to fight.

Rob’s Risky ‘Rover’ Role

According to the film’s website, Rob plays Rey, who was a gang member! It’s definitely a far stretch from the vampire role he’s known for, but it’s not a surprise since he’s been working hard to get out of that light.

Here’s the full synopsis:

The Australian desert in a dangerous and damaged near future. Eric (Guy Pearce) has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him. And then he has his last possession stolen by a gang of dangerous criminals. Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, forced along the way to enlist the help of Rey (Robert Pattinson), the naïve and injured junior member of the gang, who was left behind in the bloody chaos of the gang’s most recent robbery.
