Cool Posts From Around the Web:

If Hobo With a Shotgun made you aware that Rutger Hauer is still an actor with a lot of life left in him, The Heineken Kidnapping might be a film you want to watch out for in the days to come. The Dutch film tells the story of Alfred Heineken, the man who made Heineken beer a household name (with a little help from David Lynch) and who was kidnapped for three weeks in 1983. Maarten Treurniet has crafted this thriller that chronicles those weeks, and the trailer (not in English, sadly) will give you a pretty good idea of what to expect, should the film ever make it to the States.

What a great turn of events if Hobo With a Shotgun proved to be a career resuscitation for Rutger Hauer. Though he has worked steadily for the last few years, his last really high-profile roles were in 2005, in Sin City and Batman Begins. But Hobo With a Shotgun gave him some new life at festivals, and he had a notable role in The Rite. Now the latest film to bring him into the fold is Dario Argento‘s Dracula 3D, in which the actor will reportedly play Van Helsing. Read More »

The whole tongue-in-cheek, gory, B-movie grindhouse thing is so played out these days. How many ways can you film the explosion of the human head or the mutilation of a body part, really? Before Hobo With A Shotgun, I would have said there was some sort of ceiling to that kind of carnage. But co-writer and director Jason Eisener has come up with so many new, creative ways to destroy the human body (and insane dialogue to go along with it) that, I dare say, he’s taken the tongue-in-cheek, gory, B-movie grindhouse thing to a whole new level. Hobo With A Shotgun is so incredibly over the top with its excess, fans of this genre are going to be bowing to it. Read More »

Hobo With a Shotgun started life as a  trailer for a grindhouse film that didn’t exist, and writer/director Jason Eisener spent much of this year shooting an expanded feature version starring Rutger Hauer as the title character. The film is scheduled for the Sundance Film Festival in January, but while there it won’t have to go through the rigors of a sale for US distribution rights. Magnet, the genre arm of Magnolia, has picked up the film for distribution in the US. Read More »
