Flashback: Salma Hayek's American Debut 20 Years Ago

29 December 2011 5:23 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

You couldn't have known it then, but if you happened to be watching TV on October 10th, 1992, and flipped to HBO to catch their original series "Dream On," you were witnessing history.

The sassy Mexican guest star in the episode, who Martin (star Brian Benben) meets in an elevator and asks on a date, was none other than future Oscar-nominee Salma Hayek. It was her first major English-speaking role, after a smaller turn earlier in the year in the Carl Weathers crime drama "Street Justice," and you can tell even from this one episode that she, at age 26, had the goods to be a star.

Titled "Domestic Bliss," the episode sees sparks of romance fly between Martin and Hayek's character, Carmela, after some initial awkwardness on a long elevator ride. The twist here is that they get off on the same floor and then go to the same door »

Hobo with a Shotgun Red Band Trailer

1 April 2011 11:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Bear in mind this is a red band clip therefore you probably don’t want to watch it if you’re squeamish! I got to see the movie at SXSW and it’s completely messed up but in a very good way. The movie uses insane violence but in a very comedic way keeping the audience entertained throughout. I guess you could liken it to The Grindhouse Style of movies in Planet Terror and Death Proof which if you’ve not seen, you simply must!

Hobo with a Shotgun stars Rutger Hauer, Gregory Smith, Robb Wells, Brian Downey, Molly Dunsworth and Nick Bateman.

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, »

Hobo With A Shotgun gets a bloody nice new trailer

31 March 2011 11:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

“Welcome to fuck town.” One of the many genius one-liners from the upcoming Hobo With A Shotgun, starring Rutger Hauer, which will arrive in UK cinemas later this year (22nd July). The film is written and directed by feature debuter Jason Eisener, and is based around one of the faux trailer from the 2007 Robert Rodriguez/ Quentin Tarantino double-bill Grindhouse.

This movie is getting some pretty good reviews folks, but boy is it bloody as hell.

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. »

A Very Red Band Trailer for Jason Eisener's Hobo with a Shotgun is Here!

7 March 2011 4:48 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Canadian director Jason Eisener is creating a new genre with his latest film, Hobo with a Shotgun. This violence-ploitation film now has a red band trailer, which is even more bloody than the one seen here (feature trailer Hwas). There are similarities between both of these film reels, but this latest one shows the demise of Santa Claus via shotgun blast and midnight robberies. This most recent clip also shows an ultra-bloody death by digger and Rutger Hauer, as the hobo, acting heroic, with a manhole cover wrapped around his neck, in comic fashion. Watch the gratuitous violence below, with this title releasing on video-on-demand April 1st and in theatres May 5th, through Magnolia Pictures.

The synopsis for Hobo with a Shotgun:

"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. »

New 'Hobo with a Shotgun' Poster and Pics

18 January 2011 9:17 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Just below is the new poster for Jason Eisener's Hobo with a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer as said shotgun wielding hobo. The film is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this week with its first screening on Friday, Jan 21. Magnet will release the film in theaters and on demand later this year.

The story is hardly high concept as Hauer plays 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.

Killer New Vintage Style One-Sheet Hobo With A Shotgun Poster

16 January 2011 6:22 AM, PST | Horrorbid | See recent Horrorbid news »

If the Grindhouse was a seemingly quote "box office failure" how in God's name has nearly every faux trailer that appeared between Death Proof and Planet Terror being produced? We don't care what the answer is because it's happening and we couldn't be more excited. Feast on the brand new vintage style one-sheet poster for the film after the break...

Don't remember the faux trailer for Hobo With A Shotgun? Well, then chances are that's because you're not Canadian. The trailer mainly appeared almost excessively in the great white north. Lucky Kanuck's! Regardless the trailer was a huge success and Jason Eisener the mastermind behind the spoof got his chance to turn it into a full length film. Which will show at the Sundance Film Festival this coming year!

Now our friends at Magnet Releasing have bought the rights to distribute the film which will have a limited theaters release and an On-Demand showing. »
