Filmmaker Quentin Dupieux tore up the scene at Cannes this year with the deeply weird horror-comedy Rubber, which centered on a homicidal telekinetic tire named Robert. It’s then fitting that the marketing campaign for his next feature Wrong, is so outright bizarre. First came the enigmatic teaser trailer and a stream of strange screen grabs, revealing mere wisps of a plot—something about a man looking for his missing dog—and now we’ve got a new clip. But don’t expect it to answer any burning questions you may have about this odd auteur’s next venture. Or any questions at all.

Quentin Dupieux is back! No, I’m not sure who he is either but nevertheless I’m intrigued. His previous effort called Rubber – a film reported as being an exercise in ‘intellectual w**kery’ and B-movie tackyness – was well received and concerning as it did a murderous car tyre with homicidal intent how could it not be?
His follow up is Wrong, a film that so far has confounded all attempts by anyone to decipher precisely what’s going on. The Gibson-insane trailer released in November served to confuse everyone further but even so the film is already generating quite a cult following. Get ready to have your mind diddled:
The film stars William Fichtner, Alexis Dziena and Steve Little and centres around a man who is looking for his lost dog and along the way comes across a nympho pizza-delivery girl, a jogging neighbor seeking the absolute, and a mysterious righter of wrongs. »

After perplexing and / or amusing the world with the tale of a psychotic, psychic tire on a rolling rampage of head-exploding revenge in Rubber, writer-director Quentin Dupieux returns with the tale of a lost dog in Wrong.If you're expecting this to be one of the most unusual lost dog stories ever told Dupieux's past would suggest that you are likely correct. And in just a couple weeks audiences at Sundance will find out.But Dupieux is a man who likes to tease and he's doing that today with a new clip from the picture, one that features star Jack Plotnick receiving a mysterious warning. William Fichtner and Steve Little also star. Check the clip below. »
Quentin Dupieux aka musician Mr. Oizo, has released a new clip from his follow-up to Rubber, Wrong, which tells of a man’s search for his lost dog and how his interactions with vpeople, including a nymphomaniac pizza delivery girl, shape his identity and attitude towards life.
So far, everything seems so right about Quentin Dupieux's "Wrong." The director behind the bonkers "Rubber" has his follow-up ready to go, with a premiere at Sundance just a few weeks away. On the heels of the awesome trailer, we now have our first scene from the movie, and as expected, Dupieux is keeping the mysteries of the flick under wraps for now. Starring Jack Plotnick, William Fichtner, Alexis Dziena and Steve Little, the story centers around a man who is looking for his lost dog and along the way comes across a nympho pizza delivery girl, a jogging neighbor and a mysterious righter of wrongs. And, it seems, Master Chang. Yep, we still have no idea what to really expect but coming from the guy who made a movie about a killer tire, it's beyond whatever we could think up or presume. Anyway, check out the clip below. »

Quentin Dupieux aka musician Mr. Oizo, has followed up his superb film Rubber with an equally as baffling new movie which is apparently Wrong (Ok, so its not wrong, that’s just the title). The film apparently tells of a man’s search for his lost dog and how his interactions with vpeople, including a nymphomaniac pizza delivery girl, shape his identity and attitude towards life.
Realitism Films have dropped the official teaser trailer for Wrong.
Directed by Quentin Dupieux, the man behind this years sure-fire cult classic Rubber, Wrong tells of a man’s search for his lost dog and how his interactions with various people, including a nymphomaniac pizza delivery girl, shape his identity and attitude towards life.
Wrong stars William Fichtner (The Dark Knight), Jack Plotnick (Gods and Monsters), Steve Little (The Ugly Truth) and Charley Koontz (Community). It’s set to premiere in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival early next year.

By now many of you have had ample opportunity to check out Rubber, the movie from Quentin Dupieux that hit last year. Yeah, the one about the sentient tire that develops psychic powers and uses them to blow the heads off animals and people. I liked Rubber a lot -- thought it was funny and entertaining in a simple, almost too-self aware way -- and have been looking forward to his next movie. Dupieux has been at work on a relatively secretive follow-up, called Wrong. The movie is in the Sundance 2012 lineup, as announced not long ago , competing in the World Cinema program. To go along with that formal announcement, here's the teaser trailer for Wrong. I'll be honest: just going off this footage I have no idea what the hell is going on in this movie. But it has William Fichtner sporting facial scars and something like a rattail »

This is not wrong. Remember that sentient killer tire film Rubber? The crazy mind behind that wacky flick, Quentin Dupieux aka Mr. Oizo, has already shot and is ready to unveil his latest bit of cinema, titled Wrong. The film was just accepted into the World Competition section at Sundance 2012, meaning I'm sure it'll be the talk of the fest once everyone gets a taste of how wrong this is (we'll be making puns like that all through next year, I'm sure). The cast includes William Fichtner, Steve Little, Jack Plotnick, Eric Judor and Alexis Dziena, but other than that I have no idea what's going on (tip via The Playlist). Enjoy! Watch the first teaser trailer for Quentin Dupieux's new film Wrong, embedded from Vimeo: Here's the Sundance plot synopsis: Dolph (Plotnick) searches for his lost dog, but through encounters with a nympho pizza-delivery girl, a jogging neighbor »

Could “Why?” be the “No Reason” of 2012. I loooooooooved Rubber- by the way, I totally didn’t mean to reference this film twice today – as it was one of my favorites of 2010. I’m happy to say that we didn’t have to wait long for Dupieux’s follow up, Wrong, as the Sundance Film Festival announced their 2012 films of competition yesterday. With that announcement it looks like Mr. Oizo (Dupieux) has uploaded a trailer on Vimeo.
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. Cast: Jack Plotnick, Eric Judor, Alexis Dziena, Steve Little, William Fichtner.

Some of you horror fans might remember a disturbing Cronenbergian film called In My Skin written, directed and acted by Marina de Van back from 2002. While she has visited our genre since with Don’t Look Back in 2009, I still haven’t had a chance to watch it. With two horror films under her belt, why not add a new one?
Dark Touch opens one evening, in the middle of the countryside in an isolated house that comes to life, as if gripped by madness: objects and furniture fly into a rage against the inhabitants. Eleven-year-old Niamh is the only survivor of the bloody carnage caused by the furniture: her parents and her little brother are dead. »

One of the most divisive movies from last year (at least within the Sound On Sight staff), was Quentin Dupieux’s Rubber, a coming of age tale about a killer tire with telepathic powers, who goes on a killing spree. Simon got himself into hot water when he called the film smug and directly insulted Dupieux on episode 23 of the Sordid Cinema podcast. I was a little more positive with my review from the Fantasia Film Festival describing it as, “a twisted hybrid of trash and art. A preposterous slasher film that would make a great double bill with Van Sant’s Gerry”.
Well, Dupieux is back once again and headed to Sundance with a brand new film titled Wrong. A few details have emerged. According to The Playlist, the film centers around a man who is looking for his lost dog and along the way comes across “a nympho pizza-delivery girl, »
