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