Check Out an Awesome Teaser Poster for 'Hobo With a Shotgun'
We ruffled a few feathers when we raved about the insanely badass trailer for Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer, but I don't mind, because I think this looks awesome. There's already a whole bucket load of buzz for this flick and we don't even know where it's premiering! Ain't It Cool News got their hands on a giant high res version of the poster for Hobo With a Shotgun that is being used to sell the indie film at AFM. It's an awesome old school-style poster packed with great visuals from the film. If you're also excited for this, or even if you aren't, you need to check it out below. And watch a trailer if you haven't!
This movie just looks so badass. As a reminder, Hobo With a Shotgun is based on a "fake" trailer that Jason Eisener and his Halifax, Nova Scotia-based crew made for a Grindhouse contest during the release of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's double feature. The trailer won the top prize and was included as part of the three-hour film in Canada (but not in the US). I don't think I really need to explain the plot (it's about a hobo with a shotgun damnit) but this is being directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Eisener. It's an indie, so expect it to hit some film festivals first (probably Sundance) and stay tuned for updates in the meantime!

looks better than the major letdown Machete.

i agree. machete didn't live up to my expectations. it's a shame because it could have been so much better. Machete was more like a side character in a movie about him.

What's up with you guys? Machete was so awesome and everything it promised to be? Ever heard of Mexploitation? Anyways... I'm pumped for this. Could be really good!

This poster is sooo groovy... but the chick in the yellow jacket simply kills the flow. Just sitting there like an annoyed female who found a shotgun in her closet.

What the hell, with all the Machete haters? I really loved it and can't wait to see the uncut bluray version. Anyways, this poster looks really cool and I can't wait to see this!

Another anti-Machete vote here. It was garbage. Amusing as a fake trailer, but that's it.

Agreed. Machete was crap. Too bad too, had gobs of potential, really thought Rodriguez was going to show his old face. Adios amigo - via con Dios. Whatev - kids love his stuff! He'll make plenty of cash there, won't be any of mine though. Hobo... hmmm... dunno. Probably a rental.
