MACHETE was one of my favorite films from 2010. It delivered everything it promised. It was a fun action film, completely shameless in the way that it piled one crazy thing on top of another. And why pretend like one of my favorite theatre experiences was another drama?
Now, Rodriguez and star Danny Trejo introduce the first teaser trailer for MACHETE KILLS. The trailer is in spanish, aside from a little bit of dialogue. But action speaks louder than words here anyway.
In this one, the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) enlists Machete to track down a Mexican arms dealer who wants to take his plans of world domination into space. Yeah, I know. Crazy as all get-out. The trick this time will be keeping the right amount of crazy without things getting so out of hand that it becomes broad comedy. But I have faith Rodriguez can pull it off.
Returning to the MACHETE world are Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba and Elise and Electra Avellan. MACHETE KILLS also adds several other actors to the roster. In addition to the previously-mentioned Sheen, the new film also stars Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Amber Heard, Sofia Vargera, Cuba Gooding Jr., William Sadler and Lady Gaga, Also previously mentioned, but hard to find in this teaser are Alexa Vega (pictured) and Vanessa Hudgens.
MACHETE KILLS will be released on September 13th. In addition to the teaser, I’ve included the awesomely frank interview Trejo did with Cenk Unger. Seriously, this guy does some great stuff that you never see on the screen.
