The teaser trailer for accurately named B-movie Hobo with a Shotgun — a feature film starring Rutger Hauer as the titular Hobo, based on another, earlier trailer — could not arrive at a better moment: This, the last Friday of the summer, is absolutely the perfect day to watch someone’s head get pulled off by a car in a deluge of cartoonishly pink blood, right? Right! The trailer begins with Hauer delivering a straight-talking monologue to a newly delivered baby, cut with scenes of a world gone bloodthirsty (and Hauer panhandling with a cardboard sign that reads “Am tired need $ for lawnmower.”) Hauer intones to the infant, “People look at you and think how wonderful your future will be I hate to tell you this, but if you grow up here, you’re more likely to wind up selling your body on the streets, or shooting dope from dirty needles at a bus stop... You won’t think twice about killing someone’s wife because you wont even know it’s wrong in the first place, or maybe you’ll end up like me, [Dunh Dunh Dunh, Boom!] a hobo with a shotgun.” Cue gonzo gore-fest. No joke, happy Friday.
