One of the most exciting films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is Jason Eisener‘s ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’. The film will be making it’s world premiere this January as part of the Park City at Midnight section. Check out some new images from the film below, along with a retro theatrical poster!
If you haven’t already heard, Hobo With A Shotgun, was a short film directed by Jason Eisener & produced by Rob Cotterill, won the Grindhouse Trailer Contest put on by the SXSW Film Festival & Robert Rodriguez. It all began with an announcement on Ain’t It Cool News, about a contest that gave a three week deadline to come up with a “grindhouse” style trailer for a fake movie. On the day of the announcement Eisener called Cotterill and they agreed to begin shooting that evening.
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.
