Another Badass Poster for Jason Eisener's 'Hobo With a Shotgun'!
Holy frickin' hell this looks badass! Put your kids to bed before clicking on to see this fullsize (I'm kidding, it's not that bad). IGN has debuted another new official poster for Jason Eisener's Hobo With a Shotgun, the gritty grindhouse hobo exploitation film starring Rutger Hauer that's hitting Sundance in a few weeks. In contrast to the first yellow teaser poster from a few months back, this one is just so much more badass. It totally looks like exactly like a classic 70's exploitation movie posters, complete with masked hoodlums and shotgun shells a-flyin'. I want a copy of this poster - it's definitely on its way to becoming a classic already.
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 it's being directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Eisener, who brought us Treevenge. This was picked up by Magnet Releasing and is premiering at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
