Surreal ‘Reality’ from ‘Rubber’ director Quentin Dupieux gets a trailer

3 April 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Quentin Dupieux broke out onto the film scene with his wacko cult hit Rubber, a tongue-in-cheek horror story about a killer car tire. Now he’s made four films in the last five years, and his latest, which Dupieux has been writing on and off while making his other films, has just received a trailer that deliberately seeks to defy explanation.

Reality stars Alain Chabat as a film director given 48 hours to find the perfect scream, or shriek of pain, before he receives funding for his schlocky horror film. In our review from back in October, we compared it to David Lynch and older French surrealist films, admiring its absurdist, comedic charms. Here’s the log line from IMDb:

A wanna-be director is given 48 hours by a producer to find the best groan of pain, worthy of an Oscar, as the only condition to back his film.

Watch: The Nightmare Begins In U.S. For Quentin Dupieux's Totally Weird 'Reality'

3 April 2015 5:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's not every day that you'd expect to find the likes of Alain Chabat, Jon Heder and Eric Wareheim in the same movie. Then again, films from French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux don't come down the pike every day. Hold on to your hats —your Friday is about to get pretty weird. From the man who brought you "Rubber" and "Wrong Cops" comes a picture about the business of making movies. When young cameraman Jason decides to make a horror movie, he finds a benefactor in a wealthy producer who agrees to help him out on one condition: he must find the most perfect scream in 48 hours. And so begins Jason's journey, which turns into the stuff of nightmares in which reality and surreality blend and overlap. "Reality" opens in limited release and on VOD on May 8th. Watch below. »

Watch The International Trailer For Rubber Director's Realite!

27 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Whether you love him or hate him there's no arguing the fact that there's simply nobody else quite like Rubber and Wrong director Quentin Dupieux these days. The musician turned director has been baffling and / or delighting audiences around the globe with his drily absurd sense of humor for a good few years now and he did the same at the Venice film festival this past year when he premiered his latest effort, Realite.Boasting an international cast that includes Alain Chabat, Eric Wareheim and Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder. As usual for Dupieux this one resists meaningful synopsis - plot points really aren't the point of a Dupieux film - but here's how Venice described it:Jason, a quiet cameraman, dreams of directing his first horror...
