Posted Wednesday March 13, 2013 11:05 AM GMT

They’re both handsome hunks in their own right, and Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce are joining forces for a dystopian futuristic thriller called “The Rover.”

And in a first look at the gruesome action, the “Twilight” stud looks a bit roughed up as the “Memento” man threatens him.

Per the synopsis, “The film is set in the Australian desert, in a dangerous and damaged near future. Eric (Pearce) has left everything, everyone and every semblance of human kindness behind him when a gang of desperate criminals steals his last possession.”

“Eric sets off on a ruthless mission to track them down, forced along the way to enlist the help of Rey (Pattinson), the naïve and injured junior member of the gang who was left behind in the chaos of the gang’s most recent robbery.”
