'Rubber' trailer: You'll believe a tire can, uh, kill people
I know what you’re thinking: “Not another killer tire movie!” I jest, of course. No one has previously been brave enough — or dumb enough — to make a killer tire movie. But all that has now changed with Rubber, which, according to the movie’s official website, “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.”
Rubber premieres on demand February 25 and is released theatrically April 1. The latter date makes me wonder if this whole thing isn’t a gag of some sort, although the new trailer below does look very convincing.
