New Machete Trailer Released

Machete One of the best parts of the Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse was the fake trailers that played in between Planet Terror and Death Proof. And of those trailers, Machete stood out for being so over the top and awesome.


Rodriguez was either already intending to turn Machete into a film or he obeyed the pleas of Grindhouse fans who wanted to see it come to life.

Machete Rodriguez usual Danny Trejo stars in his first leading role as the title character, a former Mexican Federale who is looking for day work in Texas and is picked up by local shady businessman Michael Benz. Benz wants him to assassinate anti-immigration Senator McLaughlin, played by Robert DeNiro and featuring his Texas accent that he gives up on halfway through his first sentence. However, Benz has pushed Machete into a trap and once Machete realizes he's been set up, all hell breaks loose.

The original fake trailer already had a pro-immigration lean to it but Grindhouse came out before the debate really heated up. With the recent legislation in Arizona, Rodriguez released a new trailer that shows a little bit more about the movie and features a snarling message for Arizona from Machete.




Aside from this movie looking pretty fantastic, I'm always encouraged by Lindsay Lohan standing upright and with her eyes un-crossed for more than a few seconds at a time. What can I say? I'm still pulling for the girl.

Machete will be released into theaters in the US on September 3, 2010. Now if they could make Don't a full-length feature, my life will be complete.

Washington "I Walk Mean Streets" Cube

Machete, huh?

Yanno. Here in Washington, D.C. we have
MS-13, and they love machetes so that you are always reading in the news, "Three headless men in McDonald's parking lot. News at eleven." D.C. gangs have so much to learn from poorer cultures. I mean, somewhere else in the world and they might cut off your lips and cut your tongue out for snitching. The Columbian necktie. Saudi hand chopping.
