Yesterday we brought you a making-of featurette and official trailer for Jason Eisner’s Hobo With a Shotgun, his grindhouse-inspired feature arriving on VOD April 1 before limited theaters May 6, thanks to Magnet Releasing. Who knew there was a red-band trailer waiting on the wing? Inside you’ll find the full ball-to-the-wall insane trailer from the flick that’s been getting a wide range of reviews. I’ll be watching it Friday….
“A train pulls into its final station and a Hobo hops from a freight car. He has dreams of a fresh life in a new city, but finds himself trapped in an urban hell instead. A city where criminals rule the streets, landlords evict single mothers in the middle of the night, and where the city’s crime boss, The Drake, reigns supreme with his sadistic, homeless-killing sons, Slick & Ivan. Through the chaos, the Hobo comes across a shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower and a shotgun, and decides it’s time to cut the grass, make the city beautiful and start a new way of life. But after witnessing the brutality that encompasses this city, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this place is with a gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber.”
