Machete Kills Trailer Shoots Online
UPDATE: Now with added Michelle Rodriguez poster

If you’re looking for nuanced character-based entertainment, you could always watch the trailer for August: Osage County again. But if you’re a fan of the Mexpolitation madness that Robert Rodriguez showcased in Machete, you’re going to have a blast with the teaser for the sequel, Machete Kills.

In this explosive and typically OTT promo, Danny Trejo’s ex-Federale is hanging around when he’s asked by the President (Charlie Sheen, credited here by his birth name, Carlos Estevez) to track down a revolutionary and crazed arms dealer named Voz (Mel Gibson), who has plans to send a weapon into space.

Returning from the first film are Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, and Rodriguez’ nieces-in-law, Electra and Elise Avellan, with new faces including Sofia Vergara (sporting a weaponised bra), Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding Jr, Marko Zuror, William Sadler, Lady Gaga and Demian Bichir. Rodriguez has also rounded up some former collaborators, with Alexa Vega and Antonio Banderas present and correct.

The first Machete promised a lot and didn’t quite deliver despite some outstanding moments, so let’s hope this one gets the ratio of fun-to-madness right. Or at least goes so loco that it’s a riotous watch. It’s set for a September 13 release in the States, but there’s no word on a UK date just yet.

There's barely not ONE memorable moment / hint of a "scene" in the whole trailer... More

Charlie Sheen, sorry Carlos Estevez, was and always will be President of The Republic of Crazy. I like the way Rodriguez and Tarantino give old stars a shot again. David Soul is due some career rehab. Perhaps he can be in Machete III. More

What happened to Robert Rodriguez?
His early work was that of a young virtuoso - inventive, fun, lean - he had the potential to be a really special filmmaker. Instead ever since Sin City he has been on a spirling journey up his own backside. After 'Grindhouse' Tarantino learned from his mistake and move on, Rodriguez has gone further down the rabbit hole... Seriously how many times of these fun but forgettable B-movie expolitation flicks are we going to have to endure before he tries something challenging again? I enjoy Danny Tre More

Solid Entertainment
The first was trashy fun, so with Mr. Rodriguez in the director chair for this one, the action should at least be inventive! More
