Trailer Watch: Rubber, your WTF-moment for the week

A horror(?) movie. Starring a telepathic tire. Named Robert….nevermind, just watch.

According to the official synopsis on Trailer Addict:

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.

Rubber hits theaters on February 25, 2011.

    I’m actually looking forward to this. I just hope that they can give some sort of reason for the tire having powers. Even if it’s a silly reason, as long as it doesn’t end with a “…we’ll never know” moment.

      I disagree, I think I’d rather have it be completely unknown. We don’t want another The Happening on our hands, do we?

        Another Happening? OH, GODS, NO! If it can’t be well done, I’ll take a mystery.

        My thing, lately has been writers that create mystery and leave the cause unresolved. That’s easy to do and, I feel, a bit lazy. So, I’ll say that I’ll even take an implausible Doctor Who-style reaso :)
