There’s both a new trailer and featurette for the upcoming Hobo With a Shotgun over at Apple Trailers. Caught it a couple of weeks ago and the positive things you’ve heard about the film are true: it’s absolutely batshit. I thought it might be nice to visit Canada sometime, but if things are like they are in Halifax, I think I’ll stay here near South Central LA (now South LA, what a lark), where it’s safe. The synopsis:
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.
Hobo With a Shotgun is available on VOD this Friday and in theatres on May 6th via Magnet Releasing. I’ve got a review hitting GUY on Friday and I’m sure one of the esteemed slobs over here will be hitting it up as well. You can click the poster to the right to enlarge and head over to Apple Trailers for the clips.
Thanks to Brian for the tip.
