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

     November 30, 2011

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.

Today is the day for short, bizarre teasers, following the first look at Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie.  Tim and Eric are funnier, but as you’ll see below, Dupeiux would win in a contest to create the most striking visual*.  Trailer via The Playlist:

Here’s the Sundance logline:

WRONG / France (Director and screenwriter: Quentin Dupieux) — Dolph searches for his lost dog, but through encounters with a nympho pizza-delivery girl, a jogging neighbor seeking the absolute, and a mysterious righter of wrongs, he may eventually lose his mind… and his identity. Cast: Jack Plotnick, Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little, William Fichtner.

And a few screencaps from the trailer:

*Not that there is any reason to pit Dupeiux against Tim and Eric.  In fact, I think they should team up, and suffocate audiences with idiosyncrasies.
