A strange new movie has arrived, and its ridiculous and unique premise is making a lot of movie fans very happy.
The movie is called Rubber, and it tells the story of a tire named Robert who randomly comes to life and discovers that he has telepathic powers! The wacky flick is directed by Quentin Dupieux and is set to hit theaters on April 1st, but can already be seen by most on VOD, iTunes, Xbox Marketplace, Playstation Network, VUDU, and Amazon.
A new poster for the movie has been released, and it comes from famed poster artist Boris Vallejo. His previous works include posters for classics like The Empire Strikes Back, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and Barbarella.

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.”
