You ready for some head-poppin' HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN goodness?!? Check out this AICN Exclusive Unrated trailer!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm proud to deliver to you the first unrated trailer on the net for Jason Eisener's HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN starring the great Rutger Hauer as the Hobo! The trailer is filled with blood and a flat-out exploitation-boner of a speech from Mr. Hauer. Is it just me or is Jason Eisener trying to become this generation's Brian Trenchard-Smith? God, I hope the movie lives up to this trailer! Enjoy!

    I agree with the TROMA comment...

    by Monroville

    It could be good, and Rutger is always a plus, but I think they should have went with someone like Powers Booth or Stacy Keach. Otherwise, it looks like a more expensive version of the trailer, though I do agree Brunt -or at least his personality- is the best... maybe that's what is wrong with Rutger; not enough growling his lines, much less one-liners. When Santa gets blown away by Rutger, I missed the "look at this, you wasted shit-burger!"

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 1:30 a.m. CST


    by Jason Eisener

    I agree, there is no one, I mean no one like David Brunt, he is an amazing man. I can tell you this though, Dave was on set everyday with me, sitting right beside me at the monitor. Rutger and him worked so well together, and you will see David Brunt in Rutgers performance, they called each other brothers on set. This is only the teaser, we still have the full trailer to blast out so you'll have your one liners soon. Thanks for the feedback guys. Im still cutting this beast, and hearing your comments is an inspiration.

    No box office is coming for this one, another geek movies for geeks who wanks over blood and guts and ripped head and shotgun impacts on bodies. FAIL.

  • scott pilgrim was infinitely more mature and poignant of a story than HOBO WITH A FUCKING SHOTGUN. grow up. so sick of this post-tarantino schlock. in case you didnt know, pilgrim isnt just about visuals, theres actually a story about love and growing up and guilt and loss there too. what do your precious expendables, machete, and hobo with a shotgun have? nothing. in 20 years, nobody will remember these movies. the end.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 6:24 a.m. CST

    In 20 years? I see your point, but not every movie

    by CreasyBear

    needs the shelf life of The Wizard of Oz or It's a Wonderful Life. If you enjoy the 2 hrs in the theater while you're watching it: mission accomplished. Fun movie. (And I did enjoy Scott Pilgrim for its inventiveness.)

    by FrankManhattan

    Finally a film with some BALLS to have fun. Fuck the haters they can go blow their bf while stroking out a load to whatever trendy art house shitfest is popular this week. HOBO is the kind of movie that lives on forver. Sure it won't break a 100 million, but you won't be finding it in the bargin bin at Wal-Mart in 6 months either. I love the second generation VHS copy look, the John Carpenterish score, the villians and of course Rudger. kudos to Eisner and company for making excited about watching a movie for a change.

    lol Canadian thru and thru and Chris Nolan fact

    by ndally

    Jesus. Ricky from Trailer Park Boys? Alliance Atlantis releasing/funding? This is Will get publicity in a "snakes on a plane" kind of way but I doubt it will be released theatrically in the US. Oh and on an unrelated side note I think Chris Nolan likes to bring 80's actors who have faded out and done nothing big for his flicks just for fun. He had Rutger in Batman Begins, Eric Roberts for Dark Knight and Tom Beringer with Inception. What other straight to DVD actors has he worked with or am I missing more? David Bowie with the Prestige? Nolan likes his Straight to DVD bargin bin actors. Maybe he will cast Tom Sizemore as the Riddler or JCVD. Take note people who heard it hear first. Next Nolan flick will have a washed up actor in a supporting role. Start placing bets with your predictions. Cause who casts Eric Roberts, seriously? I can see Rutger cause he's awesome and Nolan loves him some Blade Runner but Eric Roberts? Somethings gotta give

    by torpedoboy

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 11:17 a.m. CST

    Looks wild, but not like the original trailer.

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    This gives me the "Street Trash" (1987)/"Slime City" vibe. Unlike the original trailer which was an extreme "Death Wish" with the comic violence of "Robocop", this is set in an entirely different universe or time from out own. Unlike "Machette" which appears to flesh out the already shot trailer, this goes in a weirder, wilder direction that appears to take place in some 80s post appocaylptic world; an urban "Road Warrior". I'm not saying that's a bad thing, it's just not what I expected. Now that I can see where they're going with this, I'm pumped to see the result.

    by CreationistTechnophobicManiacs

    I'm not a fan of that type of lighting (super color saturated) unless it's for surrealistic dream sequences. Then there's the question of whether they have a decent script or not. But it looks like sleazy fun. Speaking of Troma, why in the Hell can't that fucking moron Kauffman get something like this made every two years as opposed to the fucking five we had to wait for Poultrygeist?!? Oh, I know, it's because the fucking retard still insists on shooting on 35mm film with a 25:1 shooting ratio on a 500K budget. What an asshole.

    Eric Roberts

    by judge dredds fresh undies

    You know Eric Roberts is an oscar nominated actor right ndally? A lot of actors have down periods in their careers, doesn't mean they suddenly lose their talent.

  • Sept. 3, 2010, 1:02 p.m. CST


    by ndally

    So what? Marisa Tomei WON an Oscar, so what does that say about the Oscars? Look fair enough he's not the worst actor in the world I was just making a point that Nolan makes some interesting casting choices when it comes to down and out actors. And I was making more of a point saying its kind of an odd choice given his history with Hollywood drama(drugs and such..not that's there's anything wrong with that but when it comes it a big budget tentpole super-hero films it's a tad strange and don't use Robert Downey Jr as example of that being common cause his career was on an upswing before Iron Man) I'm sure Eric Roberts has given some fine performances but he kind of sucked in The Dark Knight when compared to Tom Wilkinson(spelling?) as the don of Gotham in Batman Begins. That's not the point though, the point was that I can't name an A List Director besides Chris Nolan who uses actors who were once at the top of their game but have since been in Straight to DVD movies by the boat load. Either he's a big fan or cheap. I'm just saying it's odd. Quentin Tarantino kind of does the same thing now that I think of it but he usually gets amazing results 90% of the time while Chris Nolan just sticks em in there. Two very different directors so not really a fair comparison but it was just an observation

    Rutger makes this work

    by Star Hump

    but why is this incredible actor not a superstar? What happened? He's talented enough to have a suitcase full of awesome leading roles under his belt by now. Was it him? Was he on the sauce? Or was it just that the good leading roles were never offered? I'd love to know the inside story.<p> So Rutger's enough to really make me want to see this, but man, I don't know about that garish day-glo lighting. Last time I saw lighting like that was the execrable BATMAN AND ROBIN.

    by judge dredds fresh undies

    Fair enough, I had no problem with Roberts in The Dark Knight but its been a while since I saw it.<br><br> I would say its likely Nolan cast Hauer in Batman Begins because he's a Blade Runner obsessive, generally though I guess he just happens to be a fan of those actors and it adds to the texture of the films.

    Orgy of violence porn?

    by The Bicycle Sharer

    Really? That's what you think "degrades our culture?"<p>Here, let me help you, genius. I watch shit like this on occasion. I like it. I think it's fun and I think it's a nice outlet for anti-social feelings. But I don't change my behavior in society because of having seen it. I give the fucking wave when somebody lets me out in traffic. I say please and thank you. I say "sir" and "ma'am" when addressing my elders. (Fewer and fewer of those everyday.) I am courteous when traffic merges or at a stop sign or merely when driving in the hellish traffic out here. I watch my language in public. I nod, I smile, and I say "have a nice day." I hold the door for women and men when I get there first and I say thank you to those who return the favor. I am, for the most part, considered a very polite person, whether you be gay, straight, bi-, white, black, red, yellow, brown, or green-and-orange striped transsexual.<p>You ask me, what "degrades our culture" is ass maggots who do none of that. Fuck nuts who have absolutely no idea how to behave in public. Cursing loudly and dropping the F-bomb at a tennis match then fighting a fucking woman. Talking and texting during a movie. Driving like the road is your own personal fucking race track. Defending your shit for brains little wannabe gangbanger spawn from teachers, cops, and other adults when you ought to be beating some fucking sense and decorum into the goddamned worthless piece of shit. Acting god-awful offended, if not downright aggressively, if someone dares point out any of your impolitic behavior. And just generally acting like a fucking cretin with Tourettes raised in a sty by syphilitic whores.<p>The fault ain't in the movies themselves, but in the individuals who refuse to comport themselves appropriately, whether they've watched a violent fucking movie or not.<p>Oh, yeah, and the assholes who then defend these low-life sacks of squamous gopher shit, making every excuse in the world for 'em - race, ethnicity, poverty, wealth, broken family, daddy fuckin' 'em too much, daddy not fuckin' em enough, what-the-fucking-fuckety-fuck-ever. God, I hate those fucking apologists as much as I hate the motherfucking subhuman assholes who wouldn't know how to behave in civil society if you tied 'em up and gave 'em electro-shock while blasting 'em with fucking Emily Post twenty-four hours a day!

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    I was referring to Bicycle Sharer's post who made reference to the video making the rounds of an eldery couple trying to beat up a young New Yorker for being obnoxious and swearing. The lady slaps him, and the young dude doesn't retaliate but keeps running his mouth, then after he sits down, the old fart takes a swing at him and falls head first into the seats below, LOL. Then another old fart comes to take some blows, too. Search youtube for US Open fight.

    by ForgetfulPete

    manages to lose EVERYTHING that made the original trailer a winner. completely ditches the exploitation-film 70s style (no more grain, shiny multihued backgrounds), focuses on weird wacky violence instead of simple hardcore reality-based violence like HEY, INSTEAD OF SHOWING HIM GETTING HIS TOOTH YANKED OUT WHY DONT WE HAVE MAGIC CEILING CAT FAIRIES WHO CAN YANK PEOPLE INTO THE AIR AND BLUE SMILING MAN POWER GUY!). Goes for "subtle" with the opening speech instead of David Brunt's "HRRRRR" delivery of the original (BTW - for the guy who quoted the Santa line, the line's not "look at this you wasted shit burger" it's "suck on this you child-molesting shit licker!"). Rutger doesn't even spit, doesn't ask for the GOD DAMN PASSCODES. No GOD DAMN PASSCODES = Flaming Nipples on Optimus = FAIL!

    Retro novelty is gone after Grindhouse

    by DoctorZoidberg

    QT really did something fun with Grindhouse, but all these copycat artists are just pathetic. Copying that 'crap-quality' vintage is not technically challenging nor overtly artistic. QT gets credit for thinking outside the box to come up with the homage. That is where it should end. I think the main draw of this film is to watch outrageous violence, but done with late 70's quality special effects to limit the guilt one would normally feel from watching such sadism. Guilty pleasures to be sure.

    Vigilante films always do well because we as

    by Grammaton Cleric Binks

    a society hate scum. Only scum love scum. All these dumbass rappers in jail are scum. They're rich scum, but still scum. All these whores going on tv saying I fucked Tiger Woods, and are playing the victim are scum. The only innocent person in that group is the ex. I don't understand how these women, or Jesse James' tattooed bitch can go on tv, and actually be proud to say "I'm a homewrecking whore." Scum, pure and simple. This film reminds me so much of The Exterminator, and that's in a good way. I'll gladly pay good money to watch Rutger rid the world of scum.

  • Sept. 4, 2010, 9:44 a.m. CST

    The problem comes with who decides who is scum

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    Swearing at a tennis match makes someone scum and deserves to be beaten publicly? No. Solving problems with violence rather than reason is an epidemic in America. That said, this is just a movie, and in movies it can be fun, but when people start holding the people who do this in real life up as heroes, then you have a problem.

    Really? I'd say given the number of umemployed, disenfranchised and outright abandoned in this country the streets are fairly calm, much calmer than they'll be about 3 years from now. As for this movie, the trailer was amusing, making it into a movie is stupid and this looks terrible and Rutger should be ashamed to be involved. Anyone else notice the amount of deparved, gory violence being peddled by people like Eli Roth and his ilk? Who are these movies for anyway, and what is the point?

    Shocked alright, shocked that there isn't unanimous love for this trailer in this TB. People feeling bad for Hauer for being in this? Grow the fuck up, Hauer has been in pleanty of DTV fare, and I'm pretty he's made enough money in his life that he doesn't have to be making movies at all if he doesn't want to. The man obviously has a sense of humour about himself, and knows that he has lots of fans who like to see him in pulp-ish roles. Nothing I like more than seeing a great actor treat trashy material with respect. And the "terrible glorification of violence" people can also go to hell. Sorry that you watched the trailer for "Hobo with a Shotgun" and it wasn't the thoughtful meditation on hobos and shotguns that you thought it would be. Surprising though this may be, gory movies do not turn all who watch them into serial killers. Why, some people who like gory movies even wear suits to work and contribute to society! So save your moral self-righteousness for another website, sneak a flask into the theatre and have a rip-roarin' good time with this flick. I know I will, can't fucking wait.
