A new red-band trailer has surfaced online (via IGN) for writer/director Robert Rodriguez’s gloriously absurd sequel Machete Kills. The plot centers around title character and hero Machete’s (Danny Trejo) mission to stop eccentric billionaire (Mel Gibson) from launching a weapon into space, that would spread war and anarchy across the world.
This will not be chasing Oscar glory or a $50 million opening weekend. Just a simple story with a ridiculously excessive cast and relentless gory violence. I personally can’t wait to see it and I understand people that have zero interest in seeing it. One of the things that seems to get lost in movies these days is the ‘fun factor’, something that’s just fun to sit there and watch and I’m willing to let a lot slide in the name of fun.
The cast includes Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens and Cuba Gooding Jr.
In MACHETE KILLS, 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.
