Kooky U.S. Trailer for Kooky French Guy Quentin Dupieux’s Rubber

Ever get that disastrous feeling when you’re out and about and realize you forgot to pack some rubbers? I’m sure kooky Frenchie Quentin Dupieux doesn’t have that problem, especially with this U.S. trailer for his action/thriller/comedy “Rubber” making its Stateside debut. Yeah, it’s a movie about a killer rubber tire named Robert. Yeah, it’s like that.

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.

Rolling into theaters April 1, 2011.
