Robert Pattinson's Rover, Come On Over! New Flick Coming Stateside!

therover

Scientific fact: Robert Pattinson's Rover > Mars Rover! Sorry NASA!

Robert Pattinson's first flick after the Twilight series, The Rover, just got picked up by A24 for distribution in the US!

Yay! You hear that, everyone? Now we don't have to re-watch Twilight over and over again to get out R-Patz fix!

The Rover, which filmed over in Australia, features Robert Pattinson as an outlaw in a dystopian future who gets left in the desert by the rest of his gang. Pattinson then joins up Guy Pearce's reclusive character to help him find a stolen car.

So, basically The Rover = Dude Where's My Car + High Plains Drifter? Awesome.

Although no release date is set, we can't wait to see it! The only thing that could brighten a Twi-hard day more is if R-Patz was cast in 50 Shades of Grey!

People went to their rooftops this afternoon to get the best sighting of the Endeavor space shuttle as it made its zany loop de loop on top of a 747 around Tinsel Town.

The shuttle spent crazy time in space before making its final landing at LAX on Friday — marking the end of NASA's space shuttle program. Sadface!

But what a great finale!!

As Endeavor taxied on in at the United Airlines hangar, one man popped out of the cockpit's roof to wave an American flag while bystanders' emotions began to pour out.
