Kick-ass Machete Posters Hit The Web
De Niro and co show off their weaponry

12 July 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb

There’s been a distinct lack of movies featuring minigun-mounted motorbikes flying through flames, shotgun-sporting priests and blade-obsessed Mexicans, but Robert Rodriguez is here to fix that with Machete, his balls out mega B-movie, and here are the posters to prove it.

Featuring direct-to-DVD action emperor Steven Seagal, Avatar’s very own Michelle Rodriguez (complete with eyepatch, leather bra and assault rifle), and Robert De Niro wielding some hefty pistols, it's all getting very exciting.

Then there's Machete himself (Danny Trejo), wearing so many blades it looks like he recently mugged several butchers and stuffed his swag in his wax jacket. In a good way. 

They’re old school, they’re ludicrous, they’re fantastic. They also include Jessica Alba in a tank top. Need we say more? Well, maybe. Check out the trailers here and here if you haven’t already for more Machete-y based goodness.

Machete will be wiggling a massive blade in your general direction come October 29.

RE: Kick-ass Machete Posters Hit The Web
Looks cool but Steven Segal is just a bad ass in real life, he's been working in New Orleans as a sergeant for 23 years now. Sure he's gained a little weight but he is just LETHAL still he hell happened to Don Johnson though! He's got a double chin! More

RE: Michelle
L: Charlieboy1221 If I may just say that Michelle Rodriguez is by far the sexist actress in hollywood, not the best actress (a good actress but not oscar worthy) and in this poster she blows my mind. If she doesn't get onto your next 100 sexist women list I may sue you all. =) sp; Agreed - never really noticed her before Avatar, but this girl really does have some form. And then of course there's Jessica Alba......... More
