So how long will it be before we see Machete in Space?
Danny Trejo fans (you know who you are), take note. This one is for you.
In 2010 Danny Trejo was asked whether his 1960s throwback, Robert Rodriguez-directed Grindhouse film Machete was all there was or whether it would be the beginning of a series. Trejo answered that he wanted to make Machete Kills, Machete Kills Again, and finally Machete in Space. The first of those sequels is finally real, and yesterday the first trailer was released in all its great, intentionally low-budget quality glory.
The first film, Machete, starred Trejo in the lead role along with an all-star cast, including Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, and Don Johnson. Machete Kills again stars Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriquez, and Electra Avellan, adding to the cast both big and little known actors like Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexa Vega, and Lady Gaga. And, as you’ll see in this preview, Machete Kills introduces the actor born as Carlos Estevez following in his father Martin Sheen’s footsteps as a U.S. President.
Enjoy this new trailer to the retro sequel, Machete Kills:
And if you missed the original, and have no idea who Machete is, here is the over-the-top retro trailer for the original Machete that actually plays like a trailer for an early Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee movie (Rated X, it says, so not for the kiddies):
And what makes these trailers awesome? It’s the grinding voice of announcer Corey Burton. Check out his website for more of his work.
Look for Machete Kills in theaters September 13, 2013, barely in time to view it before the drive-in theaters close for the season.
