Help Us Bring HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN to the Music Box Theatre

by Dave Jennings Thursday, June 2nd, 2011 6:48pm

We are looking for your help to bring HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, the new film about just that- a hobo with a shotgun, a vigilante hobo who delivers justice with that shotgun, to Chicago. Can you help?

Have you heard of this film yet? It’s a simple story of a vigilante hobo who delivers justice with a shotgun. Yep…. that’s it.

About The Film

A train pulls into the station – it’s the end of the line. A Hobo jumps from a freight car, hoping for a fresh start in a new city. Instead, he finds himself trapped in an urban hell. This is a world where criminals rule the streets and Drake, the city’s crime boss, reigns supreme alongside his sadistic murderous sons, Slick & Ivan. Amidst the chaos, the Hobo comes across a pawn shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower. He dreams of making the city a beautiful place and starting a new life for himself. But as the brutality continues to rage around him, he notices a shotgun hanging above the lawn mower… Quickly, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this town is with that gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber

So, we want to bring it here to Chicago. We really do. Can you help?

If we get enough comments below, enough shares on Facebook and Twitter, we think we can get the distributor to bring it here. That’s right, you have a choice in programming the Music Box Theatre. Let’s see what we can do together.

So, what you should do is:

1) Comment below about why you want to see this film

2) Share this page on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the icon in the upper right corner of this page

3) Come and see this film when and if we get it!

That’s it all you Fans,Twitters, and Internet users out there. Help us out by spreading the word and making Summer 2011 a little more brutal.

This is a movie that should be seen in a theater such as the Music Box! It was made for it. Can’t believe it hasn’t already screened there! Please bring HOBO to Chicago!

I loved Grindhouse and I heard this was based on a contest winner’s fake promo back in 2006. Plus Rutger H. is great.

I have never seen a movie about a Hobo With A Shotgun. I would like to see a movie about a Hobo With A Shotgun. I think a movie about a Hobo With A Shotgun would be very good. The End.

I have resisted the urge to On Demand this in the chance I get to see it big-screen style. We gotta make this happen!

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.  Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like a HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN.  Bring it to the Music Box.

I have wanted to see this movie ever since the fake trailer was released with Grindhouse, and even more so when I found out the actual movie stars Rutger Hauer!

I know an awful lot of people who want to see this movie—myself included—and we would all be very annoyed if we didn’t get the chance to see it on the big screen. Come on! This is Chicago! OF COURSE we want to see “Hobo with a Shotgun!”

Please support the Musicbox Theatre in screening films like these.  I can’t stand another summer of over played 80’s teen comedies.

If it wasn’t for the prospect of seeing Hobo with a Shotgun at the Music Box, I would have ended my life already…Ironically, with a shotgun blast to the head, too. If you don’t want my death on your conscience or my angry ghost haunting the place where you sleep at night, please bring Hobo with a Shotgun to the Music Box!

This movie will blow you away,  it puts anything Tarantino and Rodrigeuz could ever do for exploitation to shame. Iit would be a crime not see it on the big screen if your a fan of the genre.

I’ve seen this movie twice already, so I can say with authority that everyone in Chicago with guts enough to take the depravity deserves to see this fucking movie at the Music Box.

Hobo With a Shotgun needs a screening in a major city like Chicago AND I couldn’t think of a better place to be seeing it than at the Music Box. I mean would it really be the same anywhere else??

Waited in line to see Hobo with a Shotgun at SXSW, but didn’t get in. Watching it at home on aTV didn’t do it justice. Bring this to the big screen!

Come on, we need to keep going with the stellar screenings in Chicago above other cities! We already got way advance screenings of DRIVE ANGRY and ATTACK THE BLOCK, so you can imagine our sorrow when we had to read our west coast friends’ Twitter feeds about how awesome HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN is. We want our bragging rights!

I’ve seen Hobo with a Shotgun and I’d personally pay for one of those “For Your Consideration” Oscar ads for Rutger Hauer. He’s that amazing in this movie.

If Rutger Hauer and his shotgun dispense their justice against the Plague on the Music Box’s screen, well, I’m not going to see it alone. This one talkback post is greater than or equal to $50 in ticket sales.

So this movie gets to play in Asheville, NC but in Chicago?  I’m pretty sure a lot more people will watch it here than in Asheville.
