Rubber Trailer

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:

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?

    #13 Looks like someone here doesn't know what a teaser is.

    It looks like a commercial for Goodyear or Firestone ... until it's not.
  • dave13
    lmao. i can't believe someone made that. #16 put it best.
  • Debra L
    It lost me as a potential viewer when it killed the bird. Revenge on tire or automobile company execs I could understand, but what do birds have to do with anything?
  • Nome
    Crows are evil. There's one on my street that won't leave me alone. Maybe I'll buy a tire...
  • Lar

  • Richard

  • thejugfather
    @24....LMAO!! man this looks like a very stupid movie and get excited if you want but i'm sure we just saw the best parts of it.....already

  • blasphemer
    alrighty then...I am definately in for this...
  • Mr.Cookie
    In french film, tires puncture you!
  • Cracky
    Lol. This is incredibly intriging.
  • DarkFox
    Hey....if this tyre was set loose by Spock, would that make it Vulcanized rubber?
  • @nick lol what the hell is the difference between this piece of made-up fiction and any other goddamn piece of movie fiction. Wonder if Flat Eric will make an appearance... i was really hoping for a cameo in 'Steak'
