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.

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. 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.”
