For those not in the know, Yes this is a real film. It started out as a trailer that ended up in the 2007 Rodriguez/ Tarantino double feature Grindhouse by winning a fan contest to make their own spoof “Grindhouse” style trailers. Jason Eisener’s ” Hobo With A Shotgun” won the contest and made it into the movie trailers
Rodriguez’s Machete, which was release as a feature earlier this year and is great fun.
Rob Zombie’s “Werewolf Women Of The SS”
Edgar Wright’s “Don’t”
and Eli Roth’s “Thanksgiving”
All crazy ass trailers, and even crazier is that some are getting made into feature films. I liked Machete, thought it was crazy, stupid fun. Hobo With A Shotgun will work as a film for one big reason, Rutger Hauer. Regardless of the material it will be something with weight to it and a bat nuts, crazy ass performance by Hauer guaranteed. He is a brilliant actor and what genius actors do is take any material and make it great and unforgettable.
There is buzz right now that Jason Eisener’s debut film might premiere as a midnight selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Truly a great position for any first time film maker out there.
Here’s the new theatrical trailer with Rutger in all his unbound glory. Enjoy.
Wow. Well that one should be a interesting ride.
Til Next Time. Stay Tuned.
