“I’m a genuine, high-caliber, fucker-people-upper.” Well, this is about as ridiculous as it gets. The new red band trailer for MACHETE KILLS gets silly, bloody, gruesome and hilarious. If you want to save some of the outrageous deaths for the theaters, you might want to steer clear of this new trailer, because there are some wild kills, courtesy of Danny Trejo. Plus, we get a better handle on the crazy villain that Mel Gibson is having a lot of fun bringing to life and all his minions get in on the action too. Complete with hilarious one-liners, this shows us that Machete Kills is really going to up the ante on the grindhouse action comedy.

Synopsis:

Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.

MACHETE KILLS is directed by Robert Rodriguez (Machete, Sin City, Spy Kids franchise) from a screenplay by Kyle Ward based on a story by Marcel Rodriguez and Robert Rodriguez. The film stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos, Charlie Sheen, Elise Avellan, Electra Avellan, William Sadler, Lady Gaga, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, and Marko Zaror.

 “GaGa is making the logical step into acting, with MACHETE KILLS?

Robert Rodriguez is currently underway on the sequel to his 2010 expansion of his GRINDHOUSE trailer, MACHETE. By all accounts, MACHETE was fairly tepid when it came to attempting to deliver exploitation thrills. It hit all the familiar over-the-top beats you’d expect Rodriguez to make (not necessarily a bad thing), but certainly didn’t push any bad taste.

I’ve been expecting much of the same from MACHETE KILLS. Stunt casting has been announced since the follow-up’s inception, with the likes of Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson joining returning stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, the Avellan twins and newcomers Amber Heard, Edward James Olmos, Sofia Vergara and Alexa Vega. And it’s not that the casting of Lady GaGa is changing my mind on this, but it’s oddly perfect for her to get on the acting train here.

GaGa is ridiculous. While she means well enough in her activist pants, she’s often a loud, colorful amusement park attraction (that’s also crafted some bangers on the radio, no doubt). Rodriguez’s more purposefully exploitation efforts have the same silly flare. Ludicrous violence, posturing, attempts at smoldering cool and overt sexuality, and even some surface value politics. Much like GaGa, MACHETE exists somewhere between sublime fun and sheer eye-rollery.

It’s kind of a match made in heaven, and I’m curious. No release date just yet, but you can see the Lady Gaga/MACHETE KILLS character poster, introducing La Chameleon, below.”
