First Trailer For Quentin Dupieux's New Film Is All WRONG!

Published at: Nov. 30, 2011, 7:19 p.m. CST

 

Beaks here...

When the 2011 Sundance Film Festival competition slate was announced today, one of the titles that jumped out at me was Quentin Dupieux's WRONG. How could it not? When you make a film about a telekinetic killer tire that begins with Stephen Spinella climbing out of the trunk of a car to deliver a monologue about the nature of storytelling, I'm pretty much a fan for life.

Unsurprisingly, Dupieux's follow-up to RUBBER looks like a completely absurd tale about a man named Dolph (Jack Plotnick) searching for his lost dog. Check out this brief, off-kilter trailer.

 

Okay then.

Here's the official plot synopsis for WRONG from today's SUNDANCE announcement.

Dolph searches for his lost dog, but through encounters with a nympho pizza-delivery girl, a jogging neighbor seeking the absolute, and a mysterious righter of wrongs, he may eventually lose his mind… and his identity.

    I read "Tarantino"

    by beastie

    I'm a dumbass. That looks alright.

    Awesome

    by SuperMotherBug

    I'm already sold. Rubber was fantastic.

    HELL YES

    by Chocolate_Giddyup

    Been waiting for his follow-up feature! Why does the girl at 0:25 look familiar?

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 7:34 p.m. CST

    Haha

    by Bass Ackwards

    the end credits made me LOL, no idea why. Fun trailer, hope its a good flick too.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 7:37 p.m. CST

    She looks like

    by Chocolate_Giddyup

    the girl who plays Lolita in Jarmusch's Broken Flowers...

    dumbass hipster trailer

    by D o o d

    which includes some bad acting! but I aint hatin'. I like b-movies!

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 7:48 p.m. CST

    Fuckin' AWESOME.

    by liam

    Rubber was 50% masterpiece, 50% pretentious, self-aware french GARBAGE. Also... Robert the Tire was the most compelling protagonist in any film the past year or so outside of Caesar from "Apes" and Hesher.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 7:51 p.m. CST

    An underrated aspect of Rubber was the score...

    by liam

    Beautiful score. Especially "Robert's Theme" and the music to the final scene when he turns into a trike and multiplies, rolling down the highway to hollywood... or whatever the fuck. EPIC.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 7:53 p.m. CST

    And yes, the CHICK is Alexis Dziena

    by liam

    The hot biatch from "Invasion" and that insufferable piece of shit, "Broken Flowers". The only redeeming thing about that shitty film was seeing that broad COMPLETELY NAKED. Vag slit and all :) (and a nice lil bush at that) Also, she looks like she's about 15... which makes that scene all the more AWESOME.

    PROMETHEUS PIC HAVE FUN....

    Thanks liam

    by phantomcreeps

    I'll have to check out that vag slit and bush! Wait! 15! Oh god.

    Too bad RUBBER was awful...

    by Jay

    Different doesn't equate to good.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 8:46 p.m. CST

    HOLY SHIT!

    by Tom

    looks amazing! actually love that AICN recognized this

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 9:31 p.m. CST

    Holy shit is right

    by NeoDevilbaneX

    "Rubber" was just that. Shit. And I fell in love with the trailer and concept for it... but very quickly that movie wore out its welcome with me. Completely unwatchable and "Wrong" looks to be no different. I wish he'd make more Flat Eric movies, though. Those own.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 9:41 p.m. CST

    Rubber was fucking baffling

    by Kammich

    But in a good way. I think? I found myself giggling a lot... but awkwardly. I'm a champion of the oddball(I just heralded "Tim and Eric" to the gills in that other TB), but it even had me puzzled on a few instances. That earns my respect. The cutting of this teaser is pretty fucking awesome, and if its got William Fichtner in it, its scientifically impossible for it to be bad.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 10:03 p.m. CST

    William Fichtner plus the guy who played a pedophile on Reno 911?

    by BadMrWonka

    Yeah, I'm there.

    Quentin really needs to go back to making shitty French electro

    by seagrass

    as Mr. Oizo. Sounds like he did the score for this one, too. All we need now is for Justice to make a "film" too. Daft Punk's "Interstella 5555" is how it's done, Quentin.

  • Nov. 30, 2011, 11:59 p.m. CST

    That and "Electroma"

    by seagrass

    which was the first film they directed. Both are great.

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 12:53 a.m. CST

    PLOTNICK? YES. Feature films? Meh.

    by ciroslive

    I loved PLOTNICK on the short-lived Fox series "Action", but this does not feel like a feature film to me. But I've been playing Skyrim for 20 hours a day, so what do I know?

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 5:20 a.m. CST

    Seagrass: he makes AMAZING french electro.

    by notspock2

    He's a genius producer, and just released a new album a few weeks ago. I agree that Electroma and Intastella 555 are ace though.

    RUBBER 2 MUCH

    by melonman

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 6:23 a.m. CST

    RUBBER was brilliant once

    by Spandau Belly

    I loved watching it that one time, but if I watched it again I'd probably hate it.

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 7:05 a.m. CST

    Inglorious Basterds to this crap?

    by AshokForgiven

    Wtf happened to Django Unchained?

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 7:38 a.m. CST

    The Score

    by ihatetalkbacks

    is made by Dupieux and Sebastian Tellier. Dupieux is Mr Oizo. people often think he is a one hit wonder as nothing he ever did was as big as Flat Beat. As he just does glitchy French House that is not surprising.

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 7:48 a.m. CST

    you guys spelled Tarenteno wrong

    by Michael Lunney

  • It's "Crisp".

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 12:47 p.m. CST

    Steak is his best film

    by awepittance

    Rubber was good, and this looks good too (looks too much like rubber) Steak is great

    LIAM_HOWLETT...

    by johnnyrandom

    ...you sound like a fucking retard. Partly because of your desperately teenage reference to ladyparts, let's face it, you've bever seen any in real life, and partly because you're too fucking THICK to appreciate Jim Jarmusch. Fuck off.

  • Dec. 1, 2011, 12:55 p.m. CST

    AND WHILE I'M AT IT...

    by johnnyrandom

    ...The Prodigy are shit.

  • and yeh DP's Electroma is awesome...

  • Dec. 2, 2011, 4:48 p.m. CST

    For a second I thought the guy's last name was "Duplex".

    by MrMysteryGuest

    lulz @ johnnyrandom

    by liam

    Sorry bud, but i think you and i both know which one of us has never seen a CUNT in real life... So i'm confused about something. Referring to "bush" or "vag slit" is somehow "desperately teenage" or whatever the fuck you're going on about? Please expound on that one, champ :)

  • Clearly has awful taste in music. Probably some dope who thinks "Firestarter" or "Smack My Bitch Up" were there first 2 singles... Dumbass. "Experience" and "Music for the Jilted Generation" are 2 of the very best albums of all time. And that goes for any genre of music. They are absolute masterpieces that transcended and redefined the genre and have never been topped since... and by casually dismissing them as you have just exposes your blatant ignorance when it comes to the art of music. Try again, asshat. :)
