A couple of acclaimed indie films have gotten new UK posters today.  The bizarre killer-tire flick Rubber has a new poster and while it may not be quite as good as the efforts by Olly Moss and Boris Vallejo, it’s still fun and eye-catching (also, I didn’t know that the Brits spelled “tire” as “tyre”; cue the “More You Know” music).  There’s also a new poster for Joe Cornish’s critically-acclaimed Attack the Block.  The film picked up rave reviews (click here to read Scott’s review) at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and I hope it picks up US distribution soon.

Hit the jump to check out both posters.  Rubber hits DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on April 11th and Attack the Block hits UK theaters on May 13th.

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.”

Here’s the official synopsis for Attack the Block:

Sam is walking home in a scary South London tower block when she’s robbed by a gang of hooded youths. She flees when the gang are attacked by a small alien creature which falls from the sky.

While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of creatures falls. The gang grab weapons, mount bikes, and set out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are much bigger. Savage and bestial, nothing will stand in their way. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her only hope.
