Quentin Dupieux (Steak) will be following up his bizarre first feature this year with a movie called ‘Rubber‘. Normally, unless he’s making electronic music under his pseudonym Mr. Oizo, I wouldn’t bother to mention anything he’s currently working on, but the plot description of this one makes me reconsider my previous indifference.
The movie will follow the adventures of a disgruntled tire that decides it’s had enough of humanity pushing him around, so he uses his psychic powers to blow up heads. You read that right. A psychic tire. Blows up heads. If that’s not cause enough to be excited, then I don’t know what is. If, for some reason, that’s not enough for you, the teaser trailer has found its way online. Check it out after the break.
Written, directed, and edited by Dupieux, the movie will star Stephen Spinella, Jack Plotnick, and Wings Hauser. Not exactly an awe-inspiring cast, but what it lacks in talent, it makes up for in psychic killer tires. Look for it to premiere on May 15th at the Cannes film festival in France.
There is also a poster for the film and a few photos at Twitch, be sure to give your own opinion in the comments section.
