Machete trailer online with Segal, DeNiro and Don Johnson!
Robert DeNiro, Steven Segal, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba and Don Johnson? Yes your eyes aren't deceiving you, this is the trailer for Machete, and not a fake one either, this is a real trailer for the real film.
Of course there's Danny Trejo in the lead, Jeff Fahey, Rose McGowan, Cheech Marin and Lindsay Lohan as well, and altogether that cast is looking really interesting. What about the trailer though?
Well Machete looks like a lot of fun, in no small part because it has a serious amount of tongue in cheek, more so than the Grindhouse films the fake trailer showed alongside, and that's something I think is running in it's favour.
Ethan Maniquis and Robert Rodriguez direct the film from Rodriguez's script about an ex-Federale who is hired to kill a Senator in order to stop the terrible injustices against the Mexican people, however he's double crossed and set-up to show the Mexican immigrants in a bad light in order for the Senator to win crucial political ground. When he recovers, he rallies his troops and heads out against the bad guys.
However the question is, will it offer enough over the Grindhouse films which didn't fare so well?
