Mr. Cartoon's Machete

We've been featuring a lot of poster art recently, that's mainly because its been kind of slow for news, but it's also because there's been a lot of really great art recently. And now we've got even more for you guys today! Robert Rodriguez's Machete, starring the one-and-only Danny Trejo, hits theaters today and MySpace has unveiled three posters that two artists from Los Angeles designed for the film. One (above) was made by Mr. Cartoon and was also seen on the side of the taco truck at Comic-Con. The other two (below) were made by muralist David Choe, including a cast compilation in the shape of a massive blade. Both look awesome.

You can see a video on MySpace about these. Choe calls the blades on the right a "Frida Kahlo lion's mane."

After being betrayed by the organization who hired him, an ex-Federale named "Machete" (Danny Trejo) launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss. Jessica Alba and Steven Seagal star, 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?

I hung out and found trouble with Choe years ago at comicon, he's a badass artist and funny ass guy, I really dig his poster.
