The first teaser trailer for Hobo With a Shotgun (that wasn’t the first trailer that the movie was based on), featured a lot of the candy-colored ultra violence that the kids crave these days. Basically, it was awesome.
This trailer is awesome in an altogether different way – the way that sees Rutger Hauer soliloquizing in front of a room full of newborns, telling them they’ll grow up to be prostitutes, pimps and pushers.
It’s dramatic, deep, and it leads into just a glimpse of the insanity that follows.
This movie is two plastic shells full of crazy. It’s fun and absurd to the breaking point, and all of that is amplified by Rutger Hauer taking every moment as seriously as a Shakespearean sonnet.
On the one hand, what you see is what you get, so you probably already know whether you’re going to pass on this one or bang down the doors of your cable provider to demand it. However, with this new trailer, I can only hope that at least one person in the Crash crowd sees it just out of curiosity.
What say you?
