Robert Pattinson's The Rover Stalls At US Box Office
Twilight star's new movie is a damp squib on first weekend of release...
Robert Pattinson's latest movie The Rover has bombed at the US box office on its first weekend in cinemas.
The gritty post-apocalyptic thriller, which also stars Guy Pearce, sees R-Pattz playing a vulnerable young adult called Rey.
It took just £293,000 from 599 cinemas across the US, but the distributor A24 is hoping the movie will be a "grower".
It issued a statement which read: "David Michod made an excellent film that received very strong reviews for its unique filmmaking and wonderful performances from Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson.
"Unfortunately we were unable to find a broader audience this weekend, but have no doubt that the film will gain fans as we continue to push it out in the weeks and months ahead."
R-Pattz recently opened up about the audition process for the film.
