It’s going to get weird this spring. After the wacky, surreal theatrical poster for Quentin Dupieux‘s Rubber follow-up Wrong landed earlier this week, a fitting trailer has now debuted. Following the story of a man and his desperate search for his one true companion, his dog, this look seems to match up with our take on the film at Sundance Film Festival last year.
We called the director “a true cinematic visionary with Lynchian flair (and even some Maya Deren-inspired avant-garde touches), who impressively juggles writing, shooting, editing and music-making (under his Mr. Oizo pseudonym), with electronic atmospheres that heighten the overall mood. Filled with off-kilter humor, delightfully surreal vignettes and a surprisingly heartfelt connection to the protagonist, Wrong is a film so insanely confident and unashamed that it’s hard not to admire its originality even if it sometimes doesn’t seem to make sense.” Check out the trailer below for the film starring Jack Plotnick, Éric Judor, Alexis Dziena, William Fichtner, Steve Little and Mark Burnham.
Dolph Springer (Jack Plotnick) awakens one morning to find he has lost the sole love of his life—his dog, Paul. Desperate to reunite with his best friend and to set things right, Dolph embarks on a journey which spirals into the realm of the absurd. On his quest, he drastically alters the lives of several severely bizarro characters, including a promiscuous pizza delivery girl (Alexis Dziena), a mentally unstable, jogging-addicted neighbor, an opportunistic French-Mexican gardener, an eccentric pet detective (Steve Little) and most mysterious of all, an enigmatic pony-tailed guru, Master Chang (William Fichtner) who imparts his teachings to Dolph on how to metaphysically reconnect with his pet. From fearless cinematic surrealist Quentin Dupieux, the director behind the head-exploding Rubber, Wrong is a wholly original and hilariously hallucinatory universe all its own.
Wrong lands in theaters on March 29th after a February 1st VOD bow.
