The 80s are back with Hobo with a shotgun

In a film with a title and the star that sounds like it came right out of the late 80s. With that in mind I give you "Hobo With a Shotgun". With Roy Batty himself, Rutger Hauer starring. Not only that the US poster is very much based on posters from the 80 that has been stored for over 20 years with the inbuilt folds. You can also click on any of the images to see a bigger version

No UK trailer exists. So here is the US "redband" one so be careful if you don't like cursing or bits of bodies being hacked / shot off!
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.
