Looks like it’s going to be a good year for horror comedy. Magnet Films is set to roll funny Frenchman Quentin Dupieux’s outrageous hell-on-wheel thriller Rubber into theaters on—wait for it—April 1. Of course, the tale of a homicidal, telekinetic tire named Robert would be completely unrelatable without a love story—hence, the new poster (pictured above) teasing Robert’s inflatuation.
Rubber’s official synopsis reads:
Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, 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.
