Watch: Badass Official Trailer for Robert Rodriguez' Machete!
As promised, another new trailer for Robert Rodriguez's Machete, directed by Ethan Maniquis and starring Danny Trejo, has debut on IGN. Back in May, Rodriguez unleashed an "illegal" trailer for Machete (with a special Cinco De Mayo message), but this is actually a legit trailer and it's pretty badass (I mean it this time). Besides Trejo, Machete stars Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal and Michelle Rodriguez, most of whom can be seen here. I totally love this trailer, it's perfectly crafted and looks like so much frickin' fun, I can't wait to see it! Congrats on one hell of a trailer, Troublemaker. Fire this up!
Watch the official 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. Can't wait to see it! Still excited?
