The boys at Twitch have premiered the trailer for Quentin Dupieux’s Wrong Cops, which premieres as three “Chapters” at this weekend’s Sundance Film Festival.
“Imagine a Los Angeles where crime is so low that a bored cop (Mark Burnham) sells drugs and harasses a teenager (Marilyn Manson) to pass the time. Shot in stand-alone chapters as it is being financed, screened, and released, Wrong Cops is gonzo filmmaking with a unique online strategy. Watch the first 45 minutes of craziness, and then dive into conversation with the cast and creative team.”
Wrong Cops is written and directed by Quentin Dupieux (Rubber) and produced by Gregory Bernard. The first 45 minutes of the project (Chapter 1-3) will be showcased at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival! The other 50 minutes will be added later for its full length run. READ MORE
The Internet is a wondrous and magical thing, ain’t it? Case and point: Quentin Dupieux, director of Rubber and Wrong, premiered the first chapter of his upcoming film Wrong Cops at the Cannes Film Festival today. The premiere was at 4pm EST and the video was put online at the same time, giving the world a chance to see what the fuss was about. The 14-minute clip stars shock rocker Marilyn Manson, Mark Burnham (“Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), and Grace Zabriskie (“Twin Peaks”). If you’re quick, you can also see a cameo from Jon LaJoie (“The League”).
“Duke, a crooked and music-mad cop, patrols in Los Angeles’ streets, music blasting and meets a young techno lover, David Dolores Frank. Appalled by the musical tastes of the young adolescent, Duke decides to give him a good music lesson.”
The full-length film will presumably be released once all the chapters are released. “It is a filthy 90-minute comedy about some disturbed cops. It is not a sequel to ‘Wrong’. Quentin Dupieux is just lazy with titles,” jokes the official website.
Marilyn Manson also just released a new album entitled Born Villain. You can check out our review here.
Limited release April 1: Tells the unlikely story of a murderous tire (yes, a tire) with terrifying telepathic powers.
Directed by Quentin Dupieux, Rubber is the story of Robert, an inanimate tire that has been abandoned in the desert, and suddenly and inexplicably comes to life. As Robert roams the bleak landscape, he discovers that he possesses telepathic powers that give him the ability to destroy anything he wishes without having to move. At first content to wreak havoc on small desert creatures and various lost items, his attention soon turns to humans, resulting in the most gory vehicular-related mayhem inflicted on screen by an “inanimate” object since Christine.
