Trailer for Machete just in time for Cinco de Mayo!

05.05.2010

It's kind of eerie the way that the plot of MACHETE, which revolves heavily around the politics of illegal immigration, has been paralleled with the recent legislation passed in Arizona. This was not lost on Robert Rodriguez who convinced Fox to allow him to release an "illegal" trailer for the film today, which is not so coincidentally Cinco de Mayo. It's mostly just an R-rated trailer but with an intro at the beginning from Machete himself who dedicates the footage to the people in Arizona.

As for the trailer itself, I have to admit it looks pretty damn awesome. With all due deference to Stallone, this is what THE EXPENDABLES should be like. Whereas that movie may be taking itself a little too seriously, this is just straight-up campy fun. I mean it has ridiculously cheesy dialogue like "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us!" and Lindsay Lohan licking a gun in a nun outfit... Check it out below and let me know what you think...

Great tariler & very ironic with all the immigration BS in Arizona, but some people completely miss the point of making a movie like this. When you get so many big name or old school actors like this, its cause they know its not gonna make a gazillion dollars or win every pointless major award out there, its just fun over the top balls to the wall action, same goes The Expendables, which was stupid to compare the 2 anyway. Plus it shows how much respect is out there for Rodriguez.

That was awesome - they have to keep the tag line in - it survived both trailers so I can't see it being dropped now.
TOtally agree with Silverload - could easily fit into the Mariachi universe (although having a new character with exactly the same tattoo could be a weird one to work around)anyway I can't wait!

Not bad. I don't get the sparks like I did with the fake trailer, but I'll see it. Damn Alba still can't act for shit, and Rodriguez still looks like a butch lesbian. Sheesh.

Good to see classic Rodriguez back in action.

This looks like something that could easily take place in Rodriguez's Mariachi universe.

Hell Yesh!

Too bad Grindhouse bombed otherwise we might have seen a double feature with this film and Hobo with a Shotgun. I would absolutely sit through grindhouse double feature of those two films. I would actually love if all the fake trailers got made. Imagine seeing Edgar Wright take on a full version of "Don't" followed by Eli Roth's "Thanksgiving".....I also wouldn't mind seeing Rob Zombie's "Werewolf women of the SS" with Nic Cage lol

Oddly enough, I think the fake trailer looked better

The Grindhouse fake trailer genuinely looked like a b-movie. This trailer, I don't know... I think there's too many stars to hide the fact that budget isn't so small and the improved production values doesn't help either.

Don't get me wrong...

This looks fun and all, and i'll definitely watch it. But doesnt seeing this make anyone else want Rodriguez and Co. to get there act together and bring us Sin City 2?

Looks great and looks like one hell of a good time. Loved everything in the trailer and everyone looks like they are having a great time. Also, Michelle Rodriguez is so hot!. Also, it is so weird to see Jeff Fahey in this after seeing him as Lipidus for son long on LOST.

...Is anyone else sketchy on the politics? Like, do you all agree, or just not really care? Seriously: I'm interested.

So far having Steven Segal, Robert DeNiro and Don Johnson in this movie is keeping me from hating it because Lindsay Lohan is in it. At least she is playing what she is in real life, a crack whore.

Should've done "SIN CITY 2."

I love alot of Rodriguez's work but this should've remained a fake trailer. Everyone looks like they're going through the motions and acting like a high school play.

I expected better.

This wasn't as good as the original fake trailer. It seems like it was cobbled together in a hurry, with uninished editing and very little of the post effects. I hold the hope that that was all that happened, and look forward to seeing the finished film.

We already have a trailer for this movie that's badass. It aired in front of Planet Terror 3 years ago.
