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.

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.

WRONG will premiere at Sundance 2012, which kicks off January 20th.
