He knows the score. He gets the women. And he kills the bad guys. They call him Machete! 20th Century Fox has exclusively provided us with two new photos from Ethan Maniquis & Robert Rodriguez' Machete, which hits theaters in September, starring Danny Trejo. An official trailer already debuted in May so we know what to expect, but it's still awesome to see more photos, including that "lobby card." Once everyone gets to see Predators this weekend, Machete should be another awesome Rodriguez genre follow-up only a few months away. I've heard that Machete may make an appearance at Comic-Con as well, so stick around.
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?

The "illegal" trailer that debuted in May was, according to Rodriguez, not an official trailer, but something re-edited to appear as though its about a race riot. AICN has an interview with him and how he did that as a joke, and that another joke trailer (apparently re-edited to seem like a family friendly film) is also on the way.

Too bad it's not shot on 16mm, don't like teh fake aspect on shooting digital and then playing with the material to maker it look old. It's not as rock and roll!

I dig it. Rodriquez should dedicate the rest of his directing career to b-movie/exploitation/Grindhouse inspired flicks. I do have to wonder, though, about those that criticize the previews - is it possible, or practical, to critique a movie that makes it quite obvious that it cares not for criticism?
