Just in time for Machete, it's the Hobo With a Shotgun trailer!

09.03.2010

I'm sure, by now, you know the story of the original trailer for HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN. Jason Eisener, John Davies, and Rob Cotterill won a contest at SXSW sponsored by Robert Rodriguez and the movie GRINDHOUSE. The trio created a trailer for a fake grindhouse film called "Hobo With a Shotgun" and as a result of their win, the trailer was played in select screenings of GRINDHOUSE in both the US and Canada. But somewhere along the way, Eisener got money to make a full-length HOBO film, not unlike what Rodriguez did with MACHETE and today the real teaser trailer is upon us!

While I would love to say that this trailer will premiere in theaters today with prints of MACHETE (where it would meet an enthusiastic response) but sadly that's never gonna happen...and that's part of why this trailer is so damn good. You've seen red-band trailers before but this is a RED-band trailer. It's filled with blood and guts and hardcore deaths all set to a speech by Rutger Hauer (as your titular Hobo) that will make you want to stand up and say, "F*ck yeah!"

I don't know how far along Eisener is in making this movie but after seeing this trailer, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN is something I need to see ASAP.

Extra Tidbit: Will there be a new Quentin Tarantino grindhouse trailer attached to MACHETE?...

I'm down

Big fan of BLADE RUNNER, so I'll see anything that has Rutger Hauer. Does this trailer remind anyone else of RUNNING SCARED with the gratuidous violence and lighting effects?

This looks utterly unique. Like a Troma flick mixed with A Clockwork Orange and Escape From New York. Count me fucking in!

Wow

Some of those scenes looks pretty cringe-worthy, but man what a casting win to get RUTGER HAUER in a micro-Indie like this. That's pretty damn impressive/lucky.

Saw that little gem of a trailer as a world premiere in July while attending the Fantasia Festival. It looks awesome, and the audience really loved it!

I'm all up for this. Everything Grindhouse has been awesome. Saw Machete last night, so I'm still in shock of amazement on how kick ass it was.

The music and colors and dialog seem so Carpenter like in the beginning, but then they crank up the energy maybe a little too much, way more than they had to. Still looks fun though

Oh my LORD that looks like trashy fun. That music at the beginning sounds so much like the score from The Warriors. For all I know it is what they used . . .

YES!

"Maybe you'll end up like me...a hobo with a shotgun!" Perfect.

Rutger Hauer hasn't had a decent starring role in years. It's about time!
