Hobo With A Shotgun Shoots Next Week
I have mentioned it a few times on the site that I will forever remember the travesty that was Grindhouse. The film itself was genius and fantastic fun, but nothing worked for them. The film never got the promotion it needed, most people who went to saw it didn’t “get it” and some of them even left after the first feature, seriously!
In 2007 there was a contest at SXSW that invited filmmakers to create their own fake Grindhouse-style movie trailers to go along the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez film Grindhouse. The winner was Hobo with a Shotgun, from Nova Scotia director Jason Eisener. Hobo with a Shotgun was attached to Canadian prints of Grindhouse (see it below) and now the feature version of his Grindhouse trailer is about to begin production and in the lead role, Rutger Hauer. I really think the downfall of Grindhouse was that it went over people’s heads. And I trust Machete and now Hobo with a Shotgun will do the same, they may work better on the home market if you ask me.
Here’s the original Hobo with a Shotgun trailer (NSFW).
