Quentin Dupieux on Wrong and Wrong Cops

Many musicians have dabbled with movies, but few have stuck it out and become as well known separately for their film work as director/d.p./editor Quentin Dupieux. Formerly best known as electronica artist Mr. Oizo, Dupieux began making short films at age 15. His first two features — 2002′s Nonfilm and Steak — didn’t attract attention outside of France, but 2010′s Rubber introduced him to a wider audience. The film follows killer tire Robert’s deadly road trip across California, beginning with a direct-to-the-audience monologue from actor Stephen Spinella explaining Dupieux’s philosophy of narrative and his bizarre sense of humor. “In the …

Quentin Dupieux's Nonfilm Now Online For No Reason

I'm hoping enough people have seen Quentin Dupieux's Rubber so that headline makes sense. With Rubber out on DVD and his new film Wrong making the festival rounds, the supreme king of No Reason cinema has recently uploaded his 2001 film debut  Nonfilm for our viewing pleasure. As Mr Oizo himself explains: Nonfilm is unwatchable.Nonfilm is my first attempt to make a movie (failed).Nonfilm is the essence of the 'No Reason'.Nonfilm is Rubber's handicapped brother.Nonfilm is a wild animal.Nonfilm contains only One joke.Nonfilm has been shot with Flat Eric's money.Nonfilm is great if you know how to watch it. Try.Personally I love Dupieux's special brand of cinema. Making Lambs Anger is one of my favourite things ever -- I like to imagine all albums are made this way....

Rubber crashes into Blu-ray/DVD soon

Magnet Releasing’s artsy-grindhouse film in Rubber (review here) is coming to Blu-ray and DVD June 7th as they’ve made public in a press release.

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.

UK Poster Released For Rubber – Officially The Strangest Film Of The Year!

You may remember a few weeks ago we unveiled the trailer for what has to be the most peculiar film of the year, if not of the last ten years – Rubber. So taken with the outlandish premise were we, that the trailer also featured as our clip of the week the following week.

The brain child of French director, Quentin Dupieux, Rubber tells the story of a discarded tyre, “Robert” who, having been abandoned in the Californian desert, suddenly comes to life and discovers his deadly telepathic powers. Now with nothing left to lose (except maybe some tyre tread) and a thirst for blood, Robert is on the rampage, and no one is safe.

Well with that in mind, Rubber has an awesome new poster to go along with it’s trailer. Featuring Robert on a bloody trailer of destruction, it’s certainly a keeper – I may have to see

'Rubber': Director Quentin Dupieux reveals all about his totally nuts killer tire movie

'Rubber': Director Quentin Dupieux reveals all about his totally nuts killer tire movie
Cinemagoers have become accustomed to the idea of faceless movie serial killers thanks to the bemasked likes of Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Leatherface, and the assorted knife-wielding maniacs of the Scream franchise. But the new film Rubber (which is currently available on VOD and hits theaters on April 1) features a murderer who is also lacking arms, legs, and a body. In fact, the movie’s villain is a discarded car tire that, for reasons which are never even remotely explained, comes to life in the California desert and starts making people’s heads explode with his psychokinetic powers. (We know

Red Band Trailer for ‘Rubber’

I can’t think of many other movies in the past, oh, five years that are as high concept as Rubber. Directed by Quentin Dupieux, the film is centered around Robert. The thing is, Robert is a tire. Who kills people. Just that idea has made me want to see the film since I first read about it months and months ago. While we had a first trailer, Hulu has been kind enough to give us a new, red band look at the movie.

And it’s a pretty fun trailer, too. There seems to be a certain confidence on display, as no real acknowledgment seems to be given of how absurd the concept is. I like that, as it makes me think that the filmmakers, while aiming for humor, actually took the movie seriously. It looks fairly beautiful; like a real movie. You can watch it below, or over

‘Rubber’ Red Band Trailer

‘Rubber’ Red Band Trailer
Magnet is going to open the very strange-sounding film Rubber in theaters in April, but the movie is already playing On Demand. All those I know who have been watching the film (and who have seen it at festivals) love the picture, and I can't wait to see it. Now there is a red-band trailer to whet your appetite in case the other trailers and the Olly Moss and Boris Vallejo [1] posters didn't do the trick. If you've seen the earlier trailers for the film (here [2] and here [3]) a lot of this footage will be familiar, but this edit is pretty good. Rubber isn't a movie with a lot of really beautiful locations, but it is quite well shot. Some of the individual shots in this trailer are just beautiful. It is a red-band clip due to violence and printed profanity, so use that info at your discretion with respect

Prepare For the Strangest Film Ever Made With ‘Rubber’

Quentin Dupieux has directed what could be the coolest and most bizarre film ever made. Rubber is the story of a car tyre coming to life and ‘roaming the bleak landscape’ of a Us desert. Oh and it’s got telepathic powers which means it can blow shit up at will. Do you want to see it yet?

The film is released in April on Blu-ray and DVD along with several special screenings around the UK. Is Rubber destined to become a cult classic? We hope so! Check out the Us trailer and revel in the genius and sheer lunacy! French actress Roxane Mesquida is in this too! Judging from the trailer it looks like Bruno Dumont’s TwentyNine Palms via the music video by Hammer and Tongs for Blur’s Coffee and T.V. track… or something like that.

Boris Vallejo Creates a Great Poster For Killer Tire Movie, ‘Rubber’

Boris Vallejo Creates a Great Poster For Killer Tire Movie, ‘Rubber’
It can't be all that easy to sell a movie about a killer tire, but Magnet is really making an effort with Quentin Dupieux's movie Rubber, which has played several festivals over the last nine months and is available On Demand as of this past weekend. (Check out the trailer here. [1]) One of the best ways to sell it might be to key in on the simple stuff, like women and the sense of strange that pervades the movie. We've already seen a poster for the film, created by Olly Moss for Fantastic Fest [2], but this is an image in a totally different direction. Boris Vallejo was famously the cover artist for fantasy and sci-fi paperbacks, and has done occasional movie poster work over the years. (The first two Vacation movies, and the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, for example.) Now he's back to sell Rubber, and his image

New Poster for Rubber

It's tough to compete with Olly Moss when it comes to movie posters, but Rubber is trying by releasing a new poster by Boris Vallejo (who last did the poster for 2007's Aqua Teen Hunger Force).  The movie is a tough sell since the protagonist is a rubber tire, but Magnet is doing a good job when it comes to their marketing.  The film was released on VOD last week and I've heard nothing but positive things about it. Hit the jump to check out the poster.  Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux, the film stars  Stephen Spinella, Jack Plotnick, Wings Hauser, Roxane Mesquida, and Daniel Quinn  Rubber is available now through video-on-demand.  It hits theaters on April 1st. Poster via HeyUGuys. Here's the official synopsis for Rubber: Rubber is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, and suddenly and inexplicably comes to life.

Tire Slasher ‘Rubber’ Full Trailer & Stills

French filmmaker and music-producer Quentin Dupieux’s killer tire movie ‘Rubber’. Who knows why Robert the killer tire comes to life and goes on a murderous rampage and who really cares? This nonsensical tale of a tire with a vicious streak seems so retarded, I feel compelled to watch it. Believe it or not, ‘Rubber’ played at Cannes Fantastic Fest, AFI and a few others to surprisingly good reviews. Magnet picked up the film, which will be released to VOD on February 25, then in theaters on April 1.Even though it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, I would watch it.

Trailer: “Rubber” the Killer Tire

A trailer for Rubber is now available online. Written, directed, and scored by Quentin Dupieux, Rubber is without a doubt one of the oddest films to come out last year – a comedy / horror / coming-of-age piece about a killer tire with telepathic powers which he uses frequently to explode the heads of his victims.

To check out the trailer for yourself, hit the jump. Rubber played the Fantasia Film Festival last year and I got a very positive review of the film here.

It will be available on-demand on February 25th before hitting theaters April 1st.
