Everyone knows in regards to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the newly rebooted DC Universe, and even Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. However possibly, simply possibly, in the future we’ll get the Tobacco Verse. If that occurs, it will all begin right here, with the discharge of the absurdist French superhero comedy Smoking Causes Coughing.
Written and directed by Quentin Dupieux, the director of flicks comparable to Rubber and Unsuitable, Smoking Causes Coughing follows an elite staff of crime fighters known as Tobacco Pressure. Named after lethal substances in cigarettes, they’re world-renowned heroes who journey the world preventing dangerous guys. Nevertheless, this film itself takes place in between these adventures. Right here’s the trailer.
Smoking Causes Coughing – Official Trailer | Directed by Quentin Dupieux | Opens March 31
The very bizarre, very gross trailer (which, sure, we’re quoted in) doesn’t fairly make it clear however a lot of the movie isn’t Tobacco Pressure preventing crime. It’s in there and it’s nice. However greater than that, it’s an anthology movie as every member of the staff tries to outdo the others by telling scary tales. Solely the tales aren’t scary. They’re simply actually, actually odd.
We noticed the movie final 12 months at Implausible Fest and whereas on the time it didn’t have a U.S. launch, it’s now set to hit theaters and on demand March 31. As you’ll be able to learn in our assessment, that is extra of an absurdist comedy that makes use of superheroes as a hook, and it’s slightly in all places, but it surely’s by no means boring or predictable. The truth is, it’s incessantly laugh-out-loud hilarious. Effectively price a rental or watch when you’re into that type of stuff. Which we very a lot are.
