Rubber: An Independent Film About A Killer Tire [WEIRD TRAILER]

If you're a fan of originality, creativity, and weirdness in filmmaking, the French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux's wacky new independent film Rubber might be right up your alley.  It's a film about a tire, hellbent on revenge for the way humans have treated his ilk.  The film conjures up images of Stephen King's Christine with more kitsch. 

Here's the movie description from the Rubber official website:

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.

Rubber premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and is set to debut on February 25th for on demand viewing and is scheduled for limited theatrical release on April 1st.
