A new red-band trailer is now online from writer/director Xan Cassavetes’ Kiss of the Damned. Starring Milo Ventimiglia as Paolo, a screenwriter who falls for the vampiress Djuna (Josephine de La Baume), Kiss of the Damned takes audiences into vampire society and explores what happens when Djuna’s rogue sister Mimi (Roxane Mesquida) threatens to upset the balance. I can’t tell if the new trailer is a grown up version of Twilight or a more serious take on True Blood, but it’s somewhere in between. Kiss of the Damned will be available on demand March 28th and in theaters on May 3rd. Hit the jump to check it out.
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:
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:
