First Honest to Goodness Real Trailer for Machete Debuts


After some fake trailers, semi-fake trailers, “illegal” trailers, and “sneak across the border at nights except in Arizona” trailers, Fox has finally released the first official honest to goodness real trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete”. And yes, Danny Trejo has never looked more Danny Trejo-er.

After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don’t know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.

Starring Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Steven Seagal, Don Johnson, Rose McGowan, Tom Savini, and directed by Ethan Maniquis with more than able assist from Robert Rodriguez.

    Man, that trailer sucks. Remember the one they did for Grindhouse? Why go in the complete opposite direction?

    Awesome. I'm glad they went with a more updated look, but still looks like a grindhouse flick. And I think i saw Rodriguez's Baby sitter twin neices as nurses. YUM! And DAYUM if Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez weren't all kinds of fine. Even with an eyepatch Michelle was sexy as hell. I liked the elongated fake trailer from a few months ago tho
