RUBBER’s red band trailer will make your head explode
RUBBER has been heating up the film blogosphere since it was first announced. What else would you expect from a film about a killer tire? The film screened at Fantastic Fest earlier this year to rave reviews, even scoring a 5/5 from our own Chase Whale.
While you can already watch it on Video on Demand, RUBBER will hit theaters on April 1. The film's director, Quentin Dupieux, is still promoting it as if it were only a theatrical release, which is great for building buzz with such a unique flick. It's got fantastic word of mouth buzz going for it from the festival circuit and from those who have seen it on VOD. And after this red band trailer, I can understand why. Watch the trailer after the break.
The official plot synopsis:
"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.'"
