Trailer: Hobo With a Shotgun

- Advertisement -

Many of you will remember the short film Hobo With A Shotgun, directed by Jason Eisener which won the Grindhouse Trailer Contest put on by the SXSW Film Festival & Robert Rodriguez. It all began with an announcement on Ain’t It Cool News, about a contest that gave a three week deadline to come up with a “grindhouse” style trailer for a fake movie and would later appear in between Rodriguez’s Planet Terror and Tarantino’s Death Proof.

Well ever since the Dartmouth filmmakers’ (Jason Eisener, Robert Cotterill and John Davies) won the notorious Trailer Competition in Austin, they have become a favourite among fans of the gore-action-comedy genre garnering more than 500,000 Internet hits. After much anticipation, the talented trio was ready to give Hobo With A Shotgun feature-length treatment and officially announced their plans to do so when they screened their award winning short film Treevenge at the 2008 Fantasia Film Festival. Fast forward two years later and the feature is not only complete but the trailer has finally arrived.

Hobo With A Shotgun tells the story of a vigilante homeless man who pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city’s crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how – with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail.

Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, The Hitcher) will play the Hobo, while Molly Dunsworth is cast as his ally Abby, Brian Downey (Lexx) as crime boss Drake and Greg Smith (Everwood) as Drake’s son Slick. Others in this strong ensemble cast include Robb Wells (Trailer Park Boys), Nick Bateman, Drew O’Hara, Pasha Ebrahimi, Juanita Peters and Scott Vrooman.

Warning: This is an unrated trailer so it’s pretty violent and blooody. Also while your at it, check out the trailer for their award winning short film Treevenge after the break.
