SPACE STATION 76 Trailer Shows Patrick Wilson, Matt Bomer and Liv Tyler Living in Deep Space 70s-Style

We’ve got an abundance of films set in a futuristic version of space, but what if space travel and deep space living more closely resembled the 70s instead?  That’s exactly what Jack Plotnick’s feature directorial debut is all about.  Rather than run with a single primary narrative, Space Station 76 puts the focus on a number of main characters going about their daily lives on a refueling station called the Omega 76.

There’s the bitter captain, Glenn (Patrick Wilson), his new assistant captain, Jessica (Liv Tyler), the space station mechanic, Ted (Matt Bomer), and his wife Misty (Marisa Coughlan) who struts around without a care in the world, often neglecting her own daughter.  You can catch them all in action in the very first Space Station 76 trailer after the jump.

WRONG Review

[This is a re-post of my review from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.  Wrong opens today in limited release.]

In 2010, Quentin Dupieux‘s Rubber hit the screen to critical acclaim. The acclaim was mostly along the lines of “The best killer tire movie you’ll ever see.” Despite its odd-ball premise and protagonist, Rubber did seem to have cohesive subtext about criticizing the audience and purposely messing with their expectations. By contrast, Dupieux’s new movie, Wrong, is all killer tire and hardly anything to say. That’s doesn’t make it a bad flick. Strangeness along the lines of a killer tire can still be pretty funny, and Wrong‘s off-kilter reality offers plenty of laughs. It’s just too silly and devoted to strangeness to make any exploration of a convoluted subtext worth considering.

Fans of Quentin Dupieux’s film Rubber look to be in for another dose of weirdness if this new trailer and poster for his next film Wrong are any indication.  While Rubber dealt with a homicidal tire with telekinetic powers, Wrong tones it down just a bit and focuses on Dolph (Jack Plotnick), a man who wakes up one morning (at 7:60) and realizes that Paul, his dog/soul-mate, has gone missing.  What follows is sure to be a strange adventure as Dolph encounters some rather odd individuals on his quest to find Paul.  Also starring Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little and William Fichtner, Wrong will be available on VOD starting February 1st, with a theatrical release on March 29th.  You can also check out the previously released teaser trailer and Matt Goldberg’s review of the film here.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer and see the poster.

Teaser Trailer for WRONG, Quentin Dupieux’s Follow-Up to RUBBER

Writer/director Quentin Dupeiux made some noise on the 2010 festival circuit when he unleashed Rubber, alternately wowing and perplexing the varied audiences of Cannes, Toronto, and Fantastic Fest.  The hyper-meta movie about a tire who kills people is right in my wheelhouse of movies that talk incessantly about their own structure; ultimately, it never quite connected, but marked Dupeiux as a filmmaker to watch.

The next Dupeiux film to watch for is Wrong, which will premiere as part of the World Cinema Dramatic Competition lineup at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.  A teaser trailer has been posted online, and promises that Wrong—led by Jack Plotnick, Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little, and William Fichtner—will strive to out-strange Rubber.  Watch for yourself after the jump.

Magnet Releasing Takes US Rights to RUBBER

by     Posted 4 years, 102 days ago

A few weeks ago we posted the trailer to one of the most unusual movies we’ve covered on Collider: Rubber.  While most movies feature a person as the protagonist, Rubber is the story of a murderous tire with telepathic powers.  The film premiered a few days ago at the Cannes Film Festival to mixed reviews, but that hasn’t stopped Magnet Releasing from picking up the US rights.  No word yet on when they plan on releasing the film, but I’d imagine it will be in the near future.  For more on the film, including some reviews from around the web, hit the jump:

Teaser Trailer for RUBBER: The Story of a Psychic Killer Tire

by     Posted 4 years, 118 days ago

Every now and then a truly inspirational film comes along that you just know will win the hearts of audiences everywhere.  I don’t think I’m going out on a limb when I say Rubber probably won’t make that list.  Rubber is the story of a killer tire named Roberto who goes out for revenge against humans after discovering a pile of burning tires. I’ll give you a moment to finish laughing…

/Film reports that the 2nd film from director Quentin Dupieux (aka as Mr. Oizo in the electronic music community) is set to premiere as a special screening in the International Critic Week’s competition at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15th. Dupieux also explains why he made the film, “I like the idea of doing a film on a living tire, with no narrative structure nor dramatic stakes. It’s possible! Also, The budget was very limited: I conceived the script, taking into account our means, and I like working like that a lot.”

Word on the street is Freddie Prinze Jr. has already contacted Roberto the tire for some tips on how to be a believable actor.  Check out the teaser trailer for Rubber after the jump:
