He later said the remote desert, harsh conditions and blistering heat changed him as an actor.

Now, we can see why in the short 22-second look at the film. The clip includes commentary by Michôd.

“Sure enough, Rob came in and was, straight away, my favorite,” the director said.

The movie unfolds in the near post-apocalyptic future where the land is lawless and controlled by roving gangs. Eric, played by Guy Pearce, has everything in his car when he is set upon by a gang intent on robbing him.

In the ensuing fight, Rob’s character, a naïve gang member named Reynolds, is wounded and left behind. Eric enlists him to help get back his possessions. They form an unwary alliance.
