CANADA: HOBO W/ A SHOTGUN OPENS FRIDAY!
Check out this incredible artwork for the upcoming issue of Rue Morgue Magazine (hitting magazine-stands April 1st) created by Gary Pullin. Well the time has come folks, this Friday, March 25th, HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN will be taking Canadian cinemas by force. I caught the film for the fourth time last night at the Toronto premiere, and I'm still amazed by the film's pacing. It's relentless. Tonight, my heart is in Halifax as it's having its hometown premiere at the Oxford Theatre; I can't wait to hear what everyone back home thinks of it!
Photo from last night's Q&A, which I graciously took part in.
IMPORTANT: Please try and make time to catch HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN this weekend! The Canadian film market tends to rely heavily on results of the opening weekend to determine the length of a film's theatrical run, so (even if you get a chance to catch a preview screening) get your butt out to the cinema and buy your ass a ticket!
If you're in Nova Scotia, you'll have to watch HOBO where it all began; the film will be screening at Empire Theatres Dartmouth Crossing and Park Lane (Halifax). In Toronto, HOBO will be screening at Eglinton Town Centre, Empire Theatres at Empress Walk, Queensway Cineplex, Scarborough Coliseum, Scotiabank Theatre (Paramount).
Spread the word! Buy tickets! Go forth and multiply!
PS. Check out director Jason Eisener on George Stroumboulopoulos' show this Friday on CBC (http://www.cbc.ca/strombo/)!
Update 25/3/11: Please enjoy another photo from Toronto's premiere which provides evidence of my involvement in the Q&A... ...I generally look less impish when I'm not standing next to a 6'5" martial arts expert.
Last but not least, I had to share my favourite tweet in regards to the HOBO trailers playing on television--perhaps my favourite tweet of all-time... The best.
That's all for now. Go out and see this film, you idiot!
