A couple weeks ago, Grindhouse-style movie called “Hobo With a Shotgun” was mostly unknown to mass public. However, within just several days, the film managed to break into The Pirate Bay’s Top 10 and now is blasted into the iMDB's Top 10. Despite the fact that the movie had been on the radar of the style fans for a while, it could hardly be called mainstream content with its B-movie acting.
However, in early April an interesting thing happened after Hobo’s unofficial copy emerged at BitTorrent networks. Within just a few days the film was found at the 13th place in The Pirate Bay’s rate of most popular movies. Realizing the scale of piracy his film faces, the movie director Jason Eisener hurried to enter the discussion. In the announcement he asked the public stop stealing his movie. Of course, it didn’t work. Since news of a super-entertaining film spread fast, Eisener finally crossed his fingers and began to hope that all the publicity appear good for the film which used to be at position ? 252 IMDb’s Weekly MOVIEmeter. And this worked.
Only ten days later, easily surpassing massive competition, film “Hobo With a Shotgun” ended up at the position No.9 in the IMDb’s Weekly MOVIEmeter ratings, which is just a position behind Limitless and two positions behind Battle: Los Angeles. Nevertheless, it appeared difficult to find any official viewing links for “Hobo With a Shotgun”, because even Google searches were going round in circles. Moreover, even its official website failed to point fans in the right direction, which is at least confusing. Usually, official ways to access content should be easily found or consumers get tired of searching for it and finally turn to any BitTorrent tracker and other unofficial networks. Meanwhile, it’s very easy to provide access to content by adding a simple link on the official website.
Those who would try to take down some illegal links to the movie may find they have a long way to go though, as the statistics indicate that the movie has been downloaded over 150,000 times on BitTorrent thus far.
