Hobo with a Shotgun
Starring: Rutger Hauer, Gregory Smith, Molly Dunsworth, Brian Downey, Nick Bateman
Director: Jason Eisener
Magnolia Pictures
Not rated

In 2007, directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino unleashed one of their greatest collaborations to date – “Grindhouse”. An homage and throwback to the exploitation films of the 1970s, the film (containing two back-to-back movies “Planet Terror” and “Death Proof”) proved to be a critical and commercial failure, though it did create a fervent cult fan base. Most everyone agreed that the highlight of “Grindhouse” was not the back-to-back films, but rather the filler, fake trailers that aired between both movies. One of those trailers, Machete, became a feature length film on its own just last year, finally satisfying all the fanboys who had hoped to see the trailer become a full length film. Hot on the heels of Machete comes another trailer that has been expanded to a feature-length film, Hobo with a Shotgun. A complete experience and thrill-a-minute of a film, Hobo with a Shotgun is sure to please and tantalize. Hobo with a Shotgun is now available to rent on VUDU in SD, HD, and HDX one month before it premieres in theaters nationwide!
