‘Wrong’ Trailer: ‘Rubber’ Director Returns With Another Exercise in Absurdity
‘Rubber’ director Quentin Dupieux is back with ‘Wrong,’ a follow-up to the killer-tire flick, and we’ve got the first wacky trailer.
‘Wrong’ premiered at Fantastic Fest last year (our review) and was immediately as divisive as ‘Rubber.’ Director Quentin Dupieux creates absurd worlds where things like telekinetic tires and an office where it’s always raining for no apparent reason are possible. He seems to have laid out his agenda in the opening scene of ‘Rubber,’ where one character delivers a monologue stating that everything that happens has no reason behind it.
And ‘Wrong’ is more of the same, though a little lighter and friendlier in tone.
This time around, the story follows Dolph (Jack Plotnick, doing a more nuanced version of Gene Wilder), a guy who wakes up one morning to find his dog missing and sets out to find him with the help of a dog psychic (Steve Little). Along the way he interacts with several people, including a pretty pizza delivery worker, a landscaper, and his dog’s abductor, played brilliantly by William Fichtner. If you’re a fan of ‘Rubber’ and absurdist humor, then ‘Wrong’ should be on your must-see list.
