Rubber - A film about an angry tire with deadly psychokinetic powers. Really. (w/video)
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?
