Robert Pattinson is changing his look and accent for The Rover. In the new trailer for the gritty drama, Pattinson plays Rey, an injured robber who is forced to help hardened loner Eric (Guy Pearce) find his stolen car. The twist? Rey was one of the thieves, and he has to help track down his gang (including his brother) to help Eric. The story takes place shortly after the collapse of modern society, and the men are stranded in the Australian desert. Things look bleak, but hey, at least Pattinson is there! This is a departure from many of his previous roles — much like his other upcoming sexy film, Maps to the Stars — and you can see him in action in the new trailer below. The Rover opens in NY and LA on June 13, with nationwide release on June 20.
