Jason Eisener’s “Hobo with a Shotgun” rests towards the very top of my must-see list for this year. As such, I’ve been following the film’s rise to cult status very closely. In order to prepare everyone for the feature’s VOD release on April 1st — which will be followed by a theatrical run beginning May 6th — a brand new trailer for this insanely promising actioner has arrived online. If this is your first time experiencing the joys of “Hobo with a Shotgun”, prepare to have your tender mind blown completely away. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The clip, as well as a featurette, await your undivided attention.
But first, here’s what the film is about:
A vigilante homeless man (Rutger Hauer) 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.
