Hollywood stars Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce suit up for the North American premiere of their latest flick "the Rover" - a tale set in a gritty, lawless Australia. It's ten years past a global financial collapse, and Pearce is in pursuit of the takers of his sole possession, a car. Not much about him is revealed in the film, not even his name. SOUNDBITE: Actor, Guy Pearce, saying (English) "It took awhile for me to understand this man through the conversations of the man I was planning because not a lot there on the page about who he is. So, you know there were a few discussions to be had." While Pearce's character is an utter loner, Pattinson portrays Rey, a dependent gang member, and a brother of one of the thieves who took Pearce's car. The part is a far cry from the vampire heartthrob role in the Twilight series that propelled Pattinson into international stardom. But the 28-year-old says it didn't feel all that different. SOUNDBITE: Actor, Robert Pattinson, saying (English) "I mean, it's... I don't know, the script, I connected to it so quickly and easily that it doesn't feel like I had to put any effort into it, the part, it was there. I feel like every part I do it is just part of the same journey really, so I don't really feel like I am changing massively every time." Viewers can judge for themselves when "The Rover" opens widely on Friday, June 20th.
