Coming Soon – Hobo With a Shotgun

Hobo With A Shotgun poster

It started life as a phony trailer in the Grindhouse double bill of Planet Terror and Death Proof. Like Machete it seems the opportunity to actually make this movie was too good to miss and it will be hitting UK cinemas mid-July.

When an ageing Hobo (Hauer) jumps from a freight car in a new city hoping for a fresh start in life, he soon realizes he has well and truly reached the end of the line. He finds himself trapped in an urban hell, an anarchic world overrun by murderers, rapists, paedophiles, petty crooks, prostitutes and corrupt cops. Reigning supreme over them all is the city’s crime boss, Drake (Brian Downey), and his two insanely sadistic sons, Slick (Gregory Smith) and Ivan (Nick Bateman). All the Hobo wants is to be able to afford to buy a second-hand lawn mower from the local pawnshop, start his own small business and make the city a more beautiful place. But a run-in with Slick and Ivan while trying to rescue pretty hooker-in-distress Abby (Molly Dunsworth) changes all that. Pushed beyond his limits, he decides to arm himself and go about changing things in an entirely different way to mowing lawns.

The film has already done the rounds of a number of film festivals, but gets it’s London premiere early next month.

Midnight Movies and Momentum Pictures will be hosting the London premiere of the film at alternative cinema space XOYO on Tuesday, 5th July 2011 from 7.30 p.m. Director Jason Eisener will be in attendance to introduce the film and to take part in a Q&A session. The evening will also include live music acts and street art, themed liquor and a guest DJ set from Olly Dixon (Filthy Dukes). Tickets for this event are on sale now for a tenner plus boooking fee. For more information, visit Midnight Movies.

Hobo With A Shotgun opens in the UK on July 15th.
