Rubber is easily the strangest movie that is set to release this year. I mean the film is about a tire, called Robert, who discovers he has telepathic powers and goes on a killing spree. See told you it was weird. And now it has a trailer!
Directed by French music producer Quentin Dupieux a.k.a Mr. Oizo, Rubber stars Stephen Spinella, Roxane Mesquida, Jack Plotnick, Wings Hauser and a big rubber tire.
There’s no Irish release date yet, but the US gets it on April 1st. You owe it to yourself to see this.
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.
