Just because we have the propensity to show an gnawingly weird short film trailer about an evil tire that boasts of uncanny superpowers, it doesn’t mean that we’ve gone off the deep end, too. We wanted to preface this piece with that only because that’s exactly what we’re going to show you. This is the teaser video of a short film directed by indie filmmaker Quentin Dupieux.
The short film is exactly what we said it’s about and with absolutely no traces of exaggeration. The star of the film is really a tire. It really does have superpowers. It really blows off people’s heads with it. ’Nuff said.
In case you’re wondering, the movie is called ’Rubber’ and it’s actually been cited as one of the short films that has been given a screening during the 2010 Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. So just because the plot - and the lead star - of the short film is about as weird as you can get, it doesn’t mean the film doesn’t have some semblance of substance in it.
Check out the trailer and see how Mr. Evil Tire handles an unassuming crow.
