Totally Badass - Robert Rodriguez's 'Illegal' Machete Trailer!
Over on Ain't It Cool News, Robert Rodriguez has premiered a brand new "illegal" trailer for Machete starring Danny Trejo. The crazy part is that Rodriguez got away with adding a "Cinco De Mayo Message for Arizona" that just so happens to perfectly tie in with the political madness that is occurring in Arizona in real-life right now. It's kind of eerie that it all ties in, but that kind of makes this so much more awesome to see. Rodriguez really is on top of some brilliant marketing ideas recently between this and Predators and I hope he keeps it up, cause this is just badass. Grindhouse at it's best! You've got to watch this, so fire it up!
Watch the "illegal" trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Machete:
After being betrayed by the organization who hired him, an ex-Federale named Machete (played by Danny Trejo) launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss. Jessica Alba looks so awesome, too!
Machete is co-directed by both Robert Rodriguez and his long-time editor Ethan Maniquis as his very first directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Robert Rodriguez and is an expanded version of the "fake" Machete trailer Rodriguez made for the release of Grindhouse in 2007. He finally got a greenlight last year and shot this down in Austin, TX last year with quite an impressive cast. 20th Century Fox will be bringing Machete to theaters on Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd this fall. I can't wait to see this! Who else?
