Quentin Dupieux's Rubber - Follow the jump to watch the trailer

Making a film about an evil, sentient car tire that manifests its anger by using psychokinetic power to explode people's heads sounds like an easy way to get laughed out of a room. In fact, it would appear the opposite is true: a film about exactly that topic has scored independent filmmaker Quentin Dupieux a 2010 Critics' Week (May 13 to May 21) screening at Cannes.

The movie itself is called Rubber, and the teaser trailer is embedded after the jump. Be forewarned: it's every bit as weird as you'd expect, given the subject matter. Follow the jump to watch for yourselves. Avatar's leviathan box-office grosses are probably safe, but hey - you never know, right?

      A lot of guys would have forgotten that idea while sleeping off the drunk that hatched it.

        Dude, dude, dude. I have this totally badass idea for a movie. It's about a tire. But not a normal tire alright man. A tire that's alive. And here's the kicker, wait for it... it can blow up stuff. Yeah, isn't that legit? Now let's go get some more shots.

      I'm going to wait until they make a musical out of it, surely it's going to be full of satire...

      It was an entirely unforseen end...

      His performance was stilted and wooden, um I mean round and rubbery...


      But seriously, I'd have to see the whole thing to make up my mind, but judging from the teaser itself, it looks more like the producer had a long night on some mind altering narcotics.

        So they killed a poor crow to make a movie. WTF? Poor bird.

      I would rather watch this than Avatar.

        Thank God I'm not the only one. Most unoriginal, predictable, piece of crap I've ever seen.

        @Jrejre: Exactly. Some people believe they're cool when hating something widely adored/accepted/respected. And some people remain like that even after their adolescence. :P

        I think most the hate for Avatar is simply because it's so popular. I haven't seen it yet but at the worst it's an average action adventure flick. I seriously doubt it's the most unoriginal, predictable, piece of crap ever made. Reminds me of how on IMDB there's a post on EVERY SINGLE MOVIE LISTED that says "Worst movie ever". . .

        Just stop it! Dances With Wolves... *cough* I mean Avatar... has a wonderful story line!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oh gawd don't get me going with Avatar, the entire movie didn't make sense. Obviously the millions of people who like avatar couldn't possibly imagine what "orbital nuking" is.

      Meh. Big plot hole in this one.

      Mr Ozio? Like Flat Beat?

        Indeed, it's him.

      My head explodes when I see certain tires — this one isn't low-profile enough.

      The star of the film has since retired from acting and has taken a job at a local park as head swing.

      Some say that his father was a tyre, and that his sperm are impervious to certain types of contraceptive.

      All we know is....he's called The Stig.

      Unbelievably stupid!!!
