The best killer-tire movie of the first part of 2011 is Rubber, and it’s been getting a lot of buzz for the way it illuminates the killer-tire problem that exists in the American southwest. You can inform yourself well in advance of the film’s April 2nd release date by watching this new red band trailer. It’s even kind of tame as red band trailers go, so you might be able to get away with watching this at work. Here’s a plot synopsis:
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.
Enjoy, and thank you once again for your small part in the fight against killer tires. (via /Film)
