Indie Teaser Sunday: Quentin Dupieux's Killer Tire Film Rubber
Yet another new Cannes film today, but this time I've got something truly special to share with you. Quentin Dupieux's Rubber is (and I'm not kidding) a drama/comedy/horror film of sorts about an angry, killer tire that roams the California desert exploding people's heads with psychic energy out of revenge. Yes, this is as totally awesome as it sounds, and we've got a very early teaser trailer to prove it thanks to Quiet Earth (and a poster over on Twitch). It's not a part of the official Cannes line-up, but Rubber was chosen to be a part of the Critic's Week sidebar, and I will definitely be seeing this in France in a few weeks. Check out this teaser!
Watch the first teaser trailer for Quentin Dupieux's Rubber:
In the Californian desert, an incredulous audience gathers to watch a telepathic tire's adventures that are mysteriously attracted by a beautiful lady. An investigation begins. Official website: rubberfilm.com.
Rubber is written and directed by French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux, aka Mr. Oizo (who's a well-known French music producer), who has a few other indie films under his belt including Nonfilm and Steak. This will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month, but doesn't have a US distributor yet. Stay tuned for updates on Rubber, as I'm definitely planning on seeing it while I'm in Cannes, and will try and let you know more details on when/if it will eventually make its way over to the US. Who else is down for this?
