Hobo with a Shotgun might just be the best movie title of all time, and this footage delivers just that and so much more, like flaming school buses, gangsters wielding machetes, a whole lot of blood and most importantly, Rutger Hauer shooting a lot of stuff. Hobo with a Shotgun is the second film being made based on a faux trailer from Grindhouse, with Machete set to be released this year. According to Quiet Earth, Jason Eisener’s hobo opus follows Hauer’s character, a homeless man who “goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how-with a 20-gauge shotgun.” Panhandling will never be the same.
Here’s the synopsis:
A vigilante homeless man pulls into a new city and finds himself trapped in urban chaos, a city where crime rules and where the city’s crime boss reigns. Seeing an urban landscape filled with armed robbers, corrupt cops, abused prostitutes and even a pedophile Santa, the Hobo goes about bringing justice to the city the best way he knows how – with a 20-gauge shotgun. Mayhem ensues when he tries to make things better for the future generation. Street justice will indeed prevail.
