Before we get into the whole ‘Machete’ thing, –which seems more like an empty promise every year, –I want to take a moment to discuss something that’s actually going to happen: Hobo with a Shotgun. Many people never saw this trailer, but it was part of the trailer competition for the Grindhouse double feature. I never saw the trailer in the theatrical release, but there’s been a lot going on with the movie-making process. And if you need another reason to see a movie titled ‘Hobo with a Shotgun’, just take the fact that Rutger Hauer is the wino with a vendetta.
“Hobo With a Shotgun tells the story of a vigilante homeless man who 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.”
