The killer tire named Robert will cause your head to explode as seen in this trailer for Rubber

01.18.2011

I'm sorry but I must start the article with a big, "WTF?"

The usual response to a movie about a killer tire with a mind of its own might be to make disparaging remarks. The first one I can think of would be, "This shit is stupid." But no, this shit is not stupid. I mean, unless you really do think it's stupid and I'm not here to change your mind so calm down.

As soon as I learned that the tire actually had a name (Robert), I was sold. Come on, you know you played killer tire with your Legos...

Check it out below and enjoy the chaos. If you want to see the tire in HD over at Apple, do so by going here.

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."

I'm a fan of Mr. Oizo's music (Positif, Jo, and Gay Dentists are classics), and I am interested in this film. Sure, the plot is extremely weird but hey, we had horror comedies about killer clowns, rabbits, and tomatoes!

I enjoy silly, odd comedies so hopefully it will be good. The premise is unique and fresh(though it wouldn't be green-lighted in [link] Hollywood), and I don't mind trying something new.

I'm sick of films retreading such tired concepts. :P

(I would actually want to watch this movie.)

I couldn't help but notice the April 1st release date. Is this some sort of hugely elaborate joke?

No Reason.

Also saw this at MIFF, is a great movie to see with a crowd. Great idea with a very good excecution. 2/3 acts are great, but the thrid is very tiresome and seems to be overlong. It's made by Mr. Oizo, if your a fan of his work as a dj, producer or video artist, this is right up your alley.
Highly recommended.

hmmmm.... definitely unique, and my hat's off for an original story! I can only imagine the brainstorm for this! How about a tire that has telepathy and goes on a killing rampage? LOL! Maybe I'll have to check this out!

Saw it at the Melbourne Film Festival. First half is pretty fantastic, very funny, but from there it just drags, with less truly funny moments, and more ridiculous (and not really in a good way) events.
Should've been a short.

Yeah that will make almost no money.

Seriously? Sorry I like weird bad movies & I thought the joke was funny but following around a freaking tire? UM, No.

Saw it at Toronto After Dark Film Festival back in August. It's a hilarious movie that isn't afraid of breaking the 4th wall. There's also more human interaction then this trailer shows.
