A trailer for the “killer-tire” horror/comedy Rubber is now available online. Written, directed, and scored by Quentin Dupieux, Rubber tells the story of a once inanimate tire named Robert (without a birth certificate, there’s no way of knowing if that’s his given name) who discovers he has telepathic powers and soon decides to use said powers against humans. The film stars Stephen Spinella, Roxane Mesquida, and (you guessed it) a rubber tire.
To check out the trailer for yourself, hit the jump. Rubber played the festival circuit last year screening at Cannes and Fantastic Fest just to name a few. It will be available on-demand on February 25th before hitting theaters April 1st.

Here’s the 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. 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.
