Machete Trailer Released!

By May 5, 2010 Comment (18)


Robert Rodriguez has released a special “illegal” Cinco De Mayo themed trailer for his upcoming exploitation film, Machete.

The movie is based on the “fake” trailer in Rodriguez’s 2007 Grindhouse. Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Danny Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal).

Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

20th Century Fox won the bidding war for the rights to Machete and will release the film in theaters on September 5th, 2010.


What do you think of the first trailer for Machete?

    illegal Americans?

    did they really say that?

    more like illegal invaders.

    it’s not a race thing.

    it’s an illegal thing.

    This film is Anti-American and will be protested by LEGAL Americans!

  • joe says:

    this has oscar written all over, the must see movie of the year, for all those who are against latinos, beware of MACHETE.

  • JDOG says:

    history will repeat itself. all immigration laws are discriminatory laws aimed at minority groups. This is a great country, but it has a history of genocide, enslavement, internment, deportation, and rendition.

    Machete will crush the tea baggers.

    You know,when I first saw this trailer, I thought it was just another 1970’s B-grade movie. It’s the announcers voice I think, reminds me 70’s B Movies. Then I thought, yeah this is just a joke or something.
    If this movie is actually coming out “fo realz” in 2010, it’s just disgraceful. Hell at least in the 70’s you expected F-ed up Racist crap like this, but in 2010?

    ^^ Funny, the writer and Directors are Mexicans. Opp’s or should I say Hispanics? I was lucky enough to be in Austin,Texas and staying at the Omni hotel when they were filming scenes for the movie. I got the chance to talk with Danny Trejo. He said it’s the best movie he has ever been a part of. How often do trailers actually portray the events of a movie?

    More racist garbage to further destroy what remains of the minds of more of our nearly mindless kids. I suspect it will inspire those mindless kids to try out some of the garbage it shows. I hope it bombs!

  • matt drapp says:

    its a robert rodriguez movie. he wrote sin city and desperado. he does a lot of stuff with quentin tarentino so i doubt this movie bombs.

  • Quentin T says:

    None of you seem to grasp the concept of a “Grindhouse” movie, you’ve failed in understanding the background on this film.

    Before you slate it as a “70’s B Movie” maybe you should look around you and see what’s being done in the industry at the moment…. NOTHING, same old bullshit stories.

    Watch it. then comment.

    Cool Movie!
    And the coolest thing is Michelle Rodriguez :-)
    @ICE your are a insane little man.
    I’m glad that not all americans are like you. Only you and George W. Bush.
    I will see the movie ten times

  • mike says:

    they just fucked with the wrong mexican, lol
    where’s the trailer with the women and titties

  • movieman says:

    Talk about bad cliche’s. Rodriguez is a hack director who steals all his ideas of Tarintino and old movies. Aliens was only halfway decent because they didn’t let do much except direct. Look at any movie he’s done that’s been decent and you’ll see it’s with someone else. This is going to bomb and hopefully he’ll go with M. Night to the place where cheesy directors go to die.

  • bahri says:

    Crazy film…I like Robert De Niro and Michelli Rodrigez :)

  • crazyace says:

    learn some ***** history…The U.S stole land from the mexicans. Colorado, new mexico, arizona, california, and nevada should be part of mexico. so really mexicans in those areas are not illegal.

  • Duane says:

    Your wrong.Your just going to make the teabaggers really,really pissed.$1.24 is the wage a day in Mexico.Thats 57 pesos.Nobody can survive on that.The bigger picture is that the borders will stay open, the economy will collapse due to numerous burdens, the middle will evaporate completely, the poor will be on government assistance with thier money, and the Upper class will have total control with the corporations and thier money.The plan is to play the races against one another so that more controls can be locked in place, namely a federal ID.All in the name of security.We don’t need more conflict and hate, we need an informed people of all races working together.FYI BUY the DVD FALL OF THE REPUBLIC at INFOWARS.COM.

    Love it. If you don’t get his humor get over it. I Love Robert and Quentin their movies are not ordinary movies. They focus on the entertainment and the underlined message. Honestly do you think that the actors they are using come back to them if they didn’t trust them. They get it! Quentin Death Proof and kill Bill are by far my fave movies and Robert Desperado has no comparison. Thank you guys for giving us movies that are hilarious, action packed and crazy ass stories.
