Hobo with a Shotgun Blasting His Way to Theatres; New Trailer Competition

There’s no question Jason Eisner’s Hobo with a Shotgun has been very well received on the festival circuit, and honestly? What’s not to like? Graphic violence! Hookers! Mayhem! Rutger Hauer! If that doesn’t sell you, we don’t know what will. The flick is set to screen at SXSW on Tuesday, March 15th, and Wednesday, March 16th, and the rest of us won’t have to wait too long to see it after that!

Magnet announced today that Hobo With a Shotgun will be available on VOD, iTunes, Xbox Marketplace, Playstation Network, and Amazon.com April 1st and in select theaters May 6th. Sweet!

Even sweeter, Magnet also has your chance to get on the DVD! Since Hobo With a Shotgun was the winner of the Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez GRINDHOUSE SXSW trailer competition and that’s how it got its break, the folks behind this flick are looking to continue the legacy of the grindhouse cinema competition. The YerDead and Rhombus teams are giving you a chance to submit the next great exploitation masterpiece!

Check out the short video below for details, and click here to enter the contest!

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.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I hope the trailer gives us another great grindhouse flick. Good luck to the competitors.

    That poster is awesome. Hauer deserves a Travolta/Pulp Fiction style comeback. I still think he was one of the all-time great psychos in the original Hitcher.
