Opens Friday, Jun 20, 2014 Synopsis: Guy Pearce stars in this post-apocalyptic Western about a lone-wolf drifter who joins forces with a wounded man to pursue a sadistic band of thieves. A decade after the collapse of the western world, Australia has become a lawless wasteland.

Meanwhile, Eric vows to reclaim his most-treasured possession by whatever means necessary, and forces Rey to help him track down the men who left him for dead. Scoot McNairy and David Field co-star in this grim tale of revenge from writer/director David Michôd (whose script for the 2010 crime drama Animal Kingdom took the Best Screenplay prize at that year's Australian Film Institute awards). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce, Scoot McNairy, David Field, Anthony Hayes Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
