That the guy that played the hobo in the original fake trailer is a real mentally unstable hobo. Which is why he wasn't asked to return for the role in the movie version.

Nov. 5, 2010, 6:18 p.m. CST
and not in a good way. the original trailer was very retro. the new movie isn't sure what it is, and neither does this poster. think of how much more awesome this poster would be if it was just a dirty yellow backdrop, the logo, and either picture of rutger above it (preferably the gun toting one near the bottom. bold, and cool. but this is looks so amateur. but hey, you want to put all your friends who can't act on a poster, fine, just grab some good shots of them at least, and if you are going for the old halftone look, at least use a consistent screen on all of them.

The original trailer for HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN was the winner of a contest that went along with the theatrical release of GRINDHOUSE, where amateur filmmakers were asked to make their own fake GRINDHOUSE trailers. HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN was the winner of the contest, and was attached to some theatrical screenings of GRINDHOUSE as part of the prize. I myself saw that trailer when I saw GRINDHOUSE in the theater, but it played before the movie proper, mixed in with all the normal trailers. I believe it was the traction from that trailer that helped Eisener to make TREEVENGE, which is an awesome short in its own right. He seems like a genuinely cool guy as well as a talented filmmaker so I hope he has indeed figured out how to turn this concept into a feature length story. I myself have been somewhat disappointed with the recent glut of fan-service "homage" films like MACHETE, PREDATORS, THE EXPENDABLES, PIRANHA 3D, KICK-ASS and SCOTT PILGRIM (although I did get some enjoyment out of most of these, don't get me wrong), but I hope Eisener's enthusiasm as a rookie filmmaker that will take HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN up to the next level.
Nov. 5, 2010, 6:23 p.m. CST
the balance is right heavy, and all the lines lead your eye to the lower left middle, basically rutger's bent elbow or the girl's jean leg, and there is nothing of interest there. but what do i know, i'm just a designer. :/

Really cool, hyperstylized stuff. I dig the idea of doing a "retro" movie that isn't beholden to 70s aesthetics. Machete sucked, this trailer was better than the whole of that film.
Nov. 5, 2010, 7:32 p.m. CST

(and this one is a pretty obvious pick due to its Austin origins) then I'm going yo take my own stab at the most likely BNAT premieres: Early afternoon first premiere = "The Green Hornet", Horror film around midnight = "Don't be Afriad the Dark", Closing film double whammy= "Suckerpunch" and "True Grit".

To take a spoof trailer and try to turn it into something other than that is rediculous. Seriously...this reminds me of "Machete/Snakes on a Plane/The Spirit" in that it's a project that came together out of pure curiosity over the concept.

When Grindhouse was in theaters, in most theaters it was not included with the film. Someone above said they saw it with the film but, mostly, not part of it. There was a contest to create a fake trailer, Hobo was the winner but they couldn't get it into the film for general release. The word was that it would be included on the home video release. The original trailer IS included on the Grindhouse Blu-Ray but, annoyingly in my opinion, it is again NOT included in the film itself. Instead it's off on the bonus disc where you kind of have to dig thru menus to find it. That original trailer just makes me laugh. "Well he's only killing dirty cops!" "We're ALL dirty cops!!!"

Death Wish 3 is a big inspiration. Anyone who is expecting Hobo With a Shotgun to be like Machete, I'm sorry but you'll be disappointed. Our film was made with Machete's food stamps in comparison Linguo_IS_Dead, your right, we do push our concept, in true exploitation fashion. Where I'm from, it's difficult to get your film attention outside of the province. When competing against big title's like Snakes on a Plane/Machete/The Spirit. We just took to the internet and tried to do what any old exploitation flick from the 70's/80's would do to compete with Hollywood. My inspirations come from that era of filmmaking and their marketing strategies. We didn't set out to make a "Grindhouse" film. We set out to make a exploitation film. It's not going to be for everyone, I realize a lot people are going to hate it. I appreciate the support that some of you are giving us. It means a lot to myself and crew and we need as much of it as we can get. Thank you.
Nov. 6, 2010, 9:18 a.m. CST
An underused actor, though he's put in some great performances: LEGEND OF THE HOLY DRINKER, THE HITCHER, BLADE RUNNER, BLIND FURY. And DEATH WISH 3 is funny as hell. This has a whiff of STREET TRASH too, which is a very guilty pleasure of mine.
Nov. 6, 2010, 9:31 a.m. CST
by Jason Eisener
Yeah, and Rutger is a lot of fun in Hobo, your gonna see a different side of him. He was my favourite actor growing up (still is). When the producers asked me who I thought could play the Hobo (which is a hard decision to make considering how great David Brunt is in the original trailer). I put out Rutger's name, thinking I would never hear anything from it. Next thing I knew, I was having a Skype call with him. And then I was picking him up from an airport. You can imagine how nervous I was. Street Trash is one of my favourite films, don't let it be a guilty pleasure, be proud of digging that film.
Nov. 6, 2010, 10:04 a.m. CST
No idea if it's the real you, but Death Wish 3 is one of the best entertaining action films of all time. People who haven't seen it are really missing out. They killed the Giggler, man!
That said, I'll definitely see Hobo. Machete was pretty good and much better than most other Hollywood titles that I've seen in the past year. Homages to Grindhouse/1970s are my thing, though.

Yes its me, I don't think anyone would take the time to pose as me. At least I hope not. I'm with ya, Death Wish 4 is nuts as well. look up "Death Wish 4 - White Gets Blowed Up Good" on youtube. I'm a fan of Elderly Men taking on crime.

I always thought the original "trailer" only showed up in Canadian theatres.
Nov. 6, 2010, 10:54 a.m. CST
I'm rooting for you. But that thing is too cluttered. I'd take out the girl in the sweater and the giant shotgun in front of Hauer's face and work from there again.
Nov. 6, 2010, 11:18 a.m. CST
The only one of the 'Grindhouse' trailers that had any potential to be made into a feature length film was 'Machete'.<p> Look how THAT turned out.
Nov. 6, 2010, 11:22 a.m. CST
I paid good money to see that in the cinema. Back when the Cannon logo was a sure a badge of sleazy entertainment as you could hope for. Cannon even had a chain of cinemas in the UK in the 80s and early 90s.
Nov. 6, 2010, 12:23 p.m. CST
How do you make a cute girl look so lame and bored. The poster looks cheap and thrown together. Hopefully this is not a sign of the movie to come. Do they understand the genre they are going for? Lamesplotation.
Nov. 6, 2010, 12:25 p.m. CST
You are all bitching about this poster not being an authentic 70's style poster... but maybe that's the intent, as that retro stuff has not done well at the box office. A modern exploitation style film might work where the retro ones have not.

by Rocco Curioso
It looks like he's in mid-massive dump. I don't mean to be crude, it's just that... we've all been there, and your mug scrunches up in that fashion. His expression doesn't really suggest the rage or vengeance of a shotgun-strapped hobo about to whip some ass.<P>Anyway, I'm quite sure Rutger Hauer is gonna breathe life into this sucker, no matter how ludicrous it may be. I'm there on opening day.
Nov. 6, 2010, 3:20 p.m. CST

I appreciate the respectful poster criticism. There are more posters to come in the near future. It's hard to please everyone. JackieJokeman your comments are just hurtful and disrespectful. I hope to hell the actress doesn't come across your comments. D. Vader was kicked off for less than that. Normally I wouldn't give a comment like this the time of day. But I find it borderline sexual harassment. Now I don't feel like forwarding this article to her. Which she should be very proud of. It's so easy to say shit like that and hide behind a fake name.
Nov. 6, 2010, 4:28 p.m. CST
...the wonderful world of the internet and the 'characters' it brings out of people. I would like to say that me and my girlfriend saw the poster last night and watched the trailer for the first time and had huge grins by the end of it. Today, I was checking out the talkback and saw that you were posting and just wanted to say good luck it looks like a hell of a time!

Machete was fucking hilarious! I feel like a lot of you guys here simply want big budget by the numbers movies only. I for one like smaller budgeted films with a little goofy to them or heart. I hate that box office somehow determines if a movie is cool or not. I don't give a shit how many retards across the country saw Grindhouse or not, I thought it was cool. Like seriously so I guess to you guys Twilight is the shit because it makes buckets of money? Fucking douches. This looks hilarious as well and I'm seeing it. Just because people are too stupid to understand it or have a laugh with it doesn't mean it sucks. It means we as nerds haven't done a good job spreading our nerdyness.

Nov. 6, 2010, 7:08 p.m. CST
The reason that Grindhouse and Machete failed, and this will fail, is because not enough people want to see an intentionally bad film. The original grindhouse films, at their best, were made by up and coming directors trying to overcome low budgets, not directors trying to recreate inferior movies for their own kicks. Instead of trying to copy cheap exploitation movies, try learning from good ones.

Do you want to know what's wrong...we're getting old and this site is full of immature idiots who think it's humourous to make a name for themselves by being pathetic. A lot of people on this site haven't earned their geek stripes they think they can pass the exam by watching a back-catalogue of films, but you had to be there man (sorry!!). Growing up in the 70's and 80's meant exposure to a lot of video nasties in an era where such things were fresh and new. I remember running to the van (yes kids, video stores didn't always exist) and picking a bruce lee film or some gruesome horror (I remember being drawn to scanners based on the box alone), I'd like to take back the geek mantle and ban anyone under 30 from this site...

The brazilians have a funny name for the pump action shotguns. they clal them the "punheteira". Which cames from the portuguese word "punheta", which means "to jerk off". So, in Brazil, they call the pump action shotgun as The Jerk-Off. Because, frankly, the masturbation imagery in the pumping action of a shotgun firing is just too obvious not to go unnoticed. And mocked.
