Last week, we shared a first look at Rutger Hauer as the Hobo With a Shotgun. Recently, director Jason Eisener posted some additional interesting material from Hobo With a Shotgun: two teaser videos that give a hint at the dark comedy we can expect from the movie.
The videos, which were posted on the official Behind the Scenes Blog for Hobo With a Shotgun, highlight the police in the film, their presumed inefficiency, and the resulting city-wide violence that has prompted Hauer’s character to become a shotgun-toting vigilante.
The first video shows a rookie cop on the beat talking about the perks of being a police officer, while the second video (which is NSFW thanks to some very liberal use of the F word) shows the Police Chief going on a tirade about “The Hobo” during a press conference.
In case you don’t remember, Hobo With a Shotgun is a feature-length adaptation of one of the mock trailers from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse. As such, the film will be bloody, violent, and, in all likelihood, terribly inappropriate. But of course, that’s the entire point. Hobo With a Shotgun, like Rodriguez’s upcoming Grindhouse spin-off, Machete, is meant to make the audience laugh and cringe at the same time.
While I didn’t find the press conference video all that funny, I did like the rookie cop video. I particularly enjoyed the line, “The town is a bit of a fixer-upper,” followed by a series of gun shots. It’s a good introduction for the kind of absurd, hard “R” vigilante fantasy that I suspect Hobo With a Shotgun will be.
What do you think of the videos? Do they pique your interest in the film?
