Welcome to another edition of The Trailer Zone, but instead of batching a bunch of trailers together, I present a special edition. Now, what would warrant a special edition, exactly? Well, a Hobo with a Shotgun of course! Based off the fan-made trailer that played before Grindhouse at SXSW a few years back, the movie version has taken it to a whole new level of both violence and taking the challenge of making Rutger Hauer a hero instead of a villain.
Rutger Hauer stars as the title character, and he’s exactly what it sounds; a hobo with a shotgun, killing crime in a city full of drug dealers, tweekers, and all around bad people. However in the true exploitation spirit, the kills are over the top, the blood flows freely, and the effects look to be practical. Best of all, Rutger Hauer spends the first part of the trailer delivering a speech that is actually, despite itself, damn powerful.
The exploitation over the top grindhouse style is apparently back folks, so I hope you’re ready for it. Check out the trailer below (this trailer is not rated, so expect a bunch of gore).
No idea on if this is going to be theatrical or straight to DVD, but I’ll keep an eye on it as time goes on. If you don’t trust me to (and I don’t blame you), you can go to the movie’s Official Site and do so yourself.
Yay? Nay? What do you think?
