We got some odd clips and teasers for the latest from Rubber director Quentin Dupieux, but now the first theatrical trailer has landed for his next absurd comedy Wrong. Coming from France – where it will debut this fall – the teaser gives us our best look at the story of a man (Jack Plotnick) and the search for his lost dog.

Wrong hits French theaters in the fall with currently no US distribution set. Check out our Sundance interview with the director here.
