A trailer for Rubber is now available online. Written, directed, and scored by Quentin Dupieux, Rubber is without a doubt one of the oddest films to come out last year – a comedy / horror / coming-of-age piece about a killer tire with telepathic powers which he uses frequently to explode the heads of his victims.
To check out the trailer for yourself, hit the jump. Rubber played the Fantasia Film Festival last year and I got a very positive review of the film here.
It will be available on-demand on February 25th before hitting theaters April 1st.
Here’s the trailer [from Apple]:
RUBBER is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, and suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses terrifying telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. At first content to prey on small desert creatures and various discarded objects, his attention soon turns to humans, especially a beautiful and mysterious woman who crosses his path. Leaving a swath of destruction across the desert landscape, Robert becomes a chaotic force to be reckoned with, and truly a movie villain for the ages. Directed by legendary electro musician Quentin Dupieux (Steak, Nonfilm), aka Mr. Oizo, RUBBER is a smart, funny and wholly original tribute to the cinematic concept of no reason.
Starring Stephen Spinella, Roxane Mesquida, Jack Plotnick, Wings Hauser, and directed by Quentin Dupieux.
