Pissed Off Mexican Machete Gets Political and Junk in New Trailer


Yeah, I gotta admit, this looks pretty bad. Of course, that’s probably the point. Robert Rodriguez has sent over the first real trailer (although it looks to have scenes from the fake trailer Rodriguez made for his “Grindhouse” movie as well) for his Mexploitation movie “Machete” to his buddies over at AICN. The trailer features an introduction by the badass Mexican himself, and it’s apparently also got some poorly inserted political message for Arizona because, um, it’s timely and shit.

The film stars Danny Trejo as a Mexican who gets set up by The Man and decides to take revenge with the help of a big ass machete. There are co-stars galore, including Jessica Alba (“We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us!”), Michelle Rodriguez standing for Latina rights everywhere, Robert DeNiro and Jeff Fahey as Evil Gringos, Cheech Marin as a shotgun-packing priest, and Steven Seagal as a guy with a sword who goes around groping women. Or, er, sorry, that’s Steven Seagal off-camera, not on. Allegedly.

    Hell yeah!! Take that Arizona! LoL. I'm sorry but this just looks awesome. As someone who owns and loves “Black Dynamite” and the “Grindhouse” doublefeature, I'm all for this. Glad to see alot of the original trailer made it to the new cut. MMM yum Michelle Rodriguez and Jessic Alba…oh and LiLo was kinda hot too. Also glad Fahey's character is in it and Don Johnson gets a part curtesy of the other Rodriguez mainstay Cheech Marin. I can't wait. You hear that Arizona, you fucked with the wrong mexican. LOL.
