Quentin Dupieux's Rubber - Click above to watch video after the jump

Rubber movieWe'll let you all in on a little secret: when we aren't furiously rowing away out our keyboards, snapping photos of our review vehicles or splitting knuckles on the world's worst project vehicles, we're stuck in front of Netflix sucking up a deluge of horrible B movies. We just can't help ourselves. Bad acting and worse editing dipped in the sugary coating of a strange premise is the perfect concoction for shutting off your brain for awhile, which is exactly why we first got excited when we heard about director Quntin Dupieux's new film, Rubber.

The movie centers on an old tire by the name of Robert that somehow comes to life, acquires telepathic powers and sets out on a murderous rampage. If that doesn't sound like B-movie gold, we don't know what does. But after watching the trailer for the flick, we can't help but think this is a legitimate film that just happens to be slumming it alongside flicks like Death Bed – The Bed that Eats.

Even setting our questionable cinematic tastes aside, we can't help but want to see this movie when it hits theaters on April 1. Hit the jump to check the video for yourself.

      So a murderous tire movie.

      ... my guess is that there are no product placement ads by Firestone.

      I've see some earlier trailers, and they were pretty weird.

      Okay... anyone good at tire forensics? What brand of tire(s) did they use?
        • 3 Years Ago
        I could vaguely make out a brand on the carcass.

        Also "Dupieux"....as in "Dupe You"

        BUT....upon researching this guy a little bit I've found that this is a real movie that was featured at Cannes already and you'll probably be able to stream it from Netflix on Feb. 25.

        This concept is so moronic that I must see it.

      With the acting skills of Megan Fox, as it seems.
