They just keep f***ing with the wrong Mexican.

Robert Rodriguez is putting together a sequel to 2010‘s Machete, titled Machete Kills, with the hopes to begin filming in April. Deals are being worked out now to see Danny Trejo return as the gut-spilling avenger. Just whose guts will Machete use as a climbing rope this time? Well, in the sequel he is recruited by the U.S. Government for a mission only he can accomplish. A Mexican cartel leader has teamed with a billionaire who intends to destroy the Earth with a weapon in space. He’s just like James Bond but pockmarked.

Does that mean Machete is headed to space? Eventually. Machete Kills is actually the second film in a planned trilogy – or Trejology. The final film in the series will be titled Machete Kills Again… in Space. Now that’s film-making. (Deadline)

Robert Rodriguez, perhaps a little unclear on the concept of a “novelty,” has announced to the denizens of Hall H at Comic-Con that there will be two more installments of Machete, turning the Grindhouse trailer-cum-movie into a bona fide trilogy. Where this falls in with Sin City 2 is anyone’s guess at this point.

Coming Soon reports that Rodriguez said to the crowd “Both sequels have been greenlit.” He has divulged that the second installment will be titled Machete Kills, while the third entry will offer the much more descriptive Machete Kills Again…In Space!

I don’t want to rush to judgement, but I feel that the third one might run a little campy. Rodriguez also offered that the space installment will feature “space babes” and lightsabers. Of course they will.

Machete may not text, but he does shill ice tea. In this commercial for Lipton Brisk, a claymatio Machete, voiced by Danny Trejo, summarizes the entire plot of his movie in one minute. It’s an extremely brisk tale indeed. I wonder why they bothered gumming up the story with another 90 minutes of repetitive action. The only problem I see with this advertisement is its focus. Is it selling Machete on Blu-ray, iced tea, or both? And who is it appealing to? Mexicans, old women, or fanboys? Don Draper would have never let this happen. (ThePlaylist)

Fans of blade-based violence and racially-insensitive humor have reason to celebrate. In an interview with Dread Central, actor Danny Trejo claimed that a Machete sequel, Machete Kills, was definitely in the works, and that director Robert Rodriguez has already written the script.

“I asked Robert Rodriguez when he was going to write Machete Kills, and he said (in his words), ‘It’s wrote,’” Trejo told the website.”Sin City 2 might have been pushed back behin Machete Kills. [laughs] Nobody cares about Mickey Rourke… [laughs].”

Trejo also dismissed criticism of Machete’s use of racially-insensitive humor.

“We did it as entertainment. What I loved was the sense of humor in it, in everything. So we kind of laughed at everybody, and that was what I loved about the movie.”

Added Trejo, “There has to be a sense of humor in everything otherwise… let’s do a documentary on prison.”

I don’t know if I agree. After all, it wasn’t really a documentary, but HBO’s prison drama, “Oz,” was pretty funny; like that episode where they fed the old Italian guy shards of glass. See, there’s humor in everything!

Machete is opening in theaters this weekend, but another Grindhouse-inspired film, Hobo with a Shotgun, is making a splash with the release of its first full-length trailer.

Like Machete, Hobo with a Shotgun started out as nothing more than a spoof-trailer. But unlike Machete and a few other memorable trailers, Hobo with a Shotgun wasn’t made by a well-known director with studio backing. It was created on a shoestring budget by a guy working in a comic-book shop. And to everyone’s surprise, it kicked just as much ass, if not more so, than its big-budget counterparts.

The fact that we’re witnessing a trailer for a movie that started out as a trailer has everyone talking about the concept of meta-film. Personally, I think Hobo with a Shotgun should be referred to as an omega-film, since from the looks of it, it’s the be-all and end-all of modern cinema. But I don’t want to over sell it. (/Film)

FX guru and filmmaker Freddie W. put together a scene that starts out simple enough with everyone taking some bad-ass pics for the cameras, but then quickly takes a dark turn once Michelle's strength is brought into question. In my opinion, this is the way all press junkets should end. Although, I'm sure the hotel staff would vehemently disagree. Check out the video below...

Machete
R, 105 min., 2010
Cast: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin with Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, and Robert DeNiro
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis
Screenplay by Robert Rodriguez and Alvero Rodriguez

While Machete is one hilarious, madcap, blood-filled pinata party, it’s also one of the most politically charged action movies to come along this year.

The iconic big screen bad-ass Danny Trejo gets his much needed day in the sun at Machete, an ex- Mexican cop turned Texas day laborer who finds himself in the middle of the battle between borders, with double crossing politicians, vigilantes, cops, and cartels. All the while he’s becoming another legendary folk hero from the endless mind of Robert Rodriguez and the Troublemaker studio family.

Machete is joined by a cast that can slap and slice the face off of The Expendables – they can be labeled  like Sergio Leone‘s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  The Good: the ultimate female revolution fighter from a taco truck Luz/She (Michelle Rodriguez in another one of her kick butt and still look sexy performances), INS agent sexpot Santana (Jessica Alba), and Priest (Cheech Marin showing up in his best Rodriguez movie cameo to date). The Bad: evil vigilante Texan Lt. Stillman (Don Johnson, at his sleazy cigar slinging best, carrying echoes of Henry Fonda’s villainous performance in Once Upon a Time in the West), racist tea bagger Senator McLaughlin (Robert DeNiro having fun as the guy you love to hate), scheming political assistant Booth (Jeff Fahey making us wonder why he isn’t cast in more movies as a screen villain), and Mexican drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal taking everything so seriously and with hilarious end results). And The Ugly: drugged up bad girl turned religious savior April (Lindsay Lohan always down to satirize her own persona) and the famous worn and pockmarked face of Danny Trejo as Machete.

All these wacky characters and more face off in a blood-filled cannon of showdowns and confetti that will you have kicking, wincing, howling, whistling, and clapping for more.

Rodriguez, sharing his writer/director/cinematographer/editor/score chair with co-director Ethan Maniquis, script writer Alveno Rodriguez, editor Rebecca Rodriguez, and cinematographer Jimmy Lindsey. It’s a block party of filmmakers that bring a lot of energy and color to the creative table, creating an environment that is part grindhouse fun and part family affair.

As the idea of Machete came out of Rodriguez’s head 15 years ago during Desperado, we now see another possible tough character actor, Michelle Rodriguez, becoming another one of his modern day folk hero characters of SHE — a legendary Mexican freedom fighter or quasi female counter part to iconic Che Guevera. You know he is onto something here when Rodriguez’s character gets the audience roar of approval next to a bland Alba applause. It’s something to look forward to in the Troublemaker future of cartoon movies.

The movie itself is more fun watching than really talking about with all its beheading and rocket-filled low riders. The first part is the most uninhibited fun, with the mixture of grindhouse type violence with political undertones that include a running gag of xenophobic political ads, not unlike something Sarah Palin would pay for.

By the time the climax hits, there are so many characters and elements played out that they all collide in a Looney Tunes-type carnival ride of guns and cars that doesn’t come to a solid conclusion. It even seems that Machete is lost at times in the battle between characters and screen time.
Yet Rodriguez and crew give us a something to chew on as we face a time of terrible racism and actions, all the while punching it with one-of-a-kind performances and action moments.

Grade: B +

If this new red band trailer for Machete doesn’t convince you to see the film this Friday then I’m afraid there’s nothing more I can do. My goodness gracious, the violence. It exploits more head trauma than Break fail video. Have you ever seen a man’s head get cut off and then split in half before it even hits the ground? Well now you can mark that morbid desire off of your bucket list.

This new extended clip (courtesy of IGN) proves that Machete is the greatest achievement in cinema history, if not human history. Not only does it contain the now famous "intestine scene" from previous trailers, but it also features hot nurses, someone getting shot in the head, and, to top it all off, an anal sex joke.

Now Eli Roth has confirmed that he will bring that total to three with a full-length adaptation of his Grindhouse trailer, Thanksgiving. I’ve been working on the script with my co-writer, Jeff Rendell, who plays the pilgrim in the trailer. And it’s me imitating Jeff’s voice [for the narration]. But Jeff has been working. I said that his deal is he has to work on the script while I’m promoting The Last Exorcism, and as soon as I’m done in mid-September he’s going to fly to California, we’re going to sit down, and bang out the script. I guess it shouldn't be surprising that most of these trailers are being turned into features. Hollywood is already scraping the bottom of the barrel with adaptations of friggen boardgames. Thanksgiving looks like Citizen Kane in comparison. (Cinema Blend)

‘Machete’ Trailer Remade with Legos http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/machete-trailer-remade-with-legos/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/machete-trailer-remade-with-legos/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Sí se puede...make an awesome Lego trailer.Outside of Hobo with a Shotgun, Machete might be the greatest trailer ever made. But even the best wasn't good enough for filmmaker David Vann, who decided to improve upon perfection by doing a scene-for-scene remake of the trailer using Legos. Needless to say, it's awesome. Even in Lego form, Danny Trejo is a terrifying man. (CinemaBlend) Watch the Lego version of Machete after the jump.

Illegal ‘Machete’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/illegal-machete-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/illegal-machete-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 For Cinco de Mayo, Robert Rodriguez dropped a package off at the home of his AICN homies, and it turned out to be the "illegal" trailer for Machete hidden underneath a pound of tamales. Alright, I'm not certain about the tamales, but it's how I deliver all of MY packages.

For Cinco de Mayo, Robert Rodriguez dropped a package off at the home of his AICN homies, and it turned out to be the "illegal" trailer for Machete hidden underneath a pound of tamales. Alright, I’m not certain about the tamales, but it’s how I deliver all of MY packages.

If you enjoyed the fake trailer for Machete attached to Grindhouse, you won’t be dissappointed by the trailer for the movie made from the trailer. It features a Mexican-hating Robert DeNiro, a Robert DeNiro hating Mexican Danny Trejo, a gun-licking nun Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, and Jessica Alba with a perm. Also, Soothsayer Rodriguez managed to tap into a controversy that’s bubbling over in Arizona at this very moment, and he predicted that sh*t months ago! Way to make the zeitgiest your bitch, Robert.

Check out the trailer below. Machete slashes into theaters September 3, 2010.

Trejo Bringing ‘Machete’ to Your Labor Day Party http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trejo-bringing-machete-to-your-labor-day-party/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trejo-bringing-machete-to-your-labor-day-party/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Let's get this barbeque f*ckin' started. This Labor Day, make room for Machete amongst your ice cold beers and charred hot dogs. The Robert Rodriguez produced film based off the trailer from Grindhouse will hit theaters September 3. Machete stars Danny Trejo as a blade-wielding Mexican ex-Federale who is double-crossed by a crooked politician. If for some loco reason blade-wielding Mexican's aren't your cup of horchata, keep in mind that Jessica Alba is playing twins in the film. Yes, that's right, Rodriguez DOES listen to your prayers at night, and he has answered them. Who else did you think you were appealing to? (Variety)

Twin Jessica Albas in ‘Machete’ for the Price of One http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/twin-jessica-albas-in-machete-for-the-price-of-one/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/twin-jessica-albas-in-machete-for-the-price-of-one/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Sensory overload. Not enough blood in my brain as I write this post. Has traveled to my...elsewhere. In a recent interview with MTV, Jessica Alba revealed she'll be playing identical twins in Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse spinoff, Machete. One of them will be bad, one of them will good, and both of them will look like Jessica Alba. I'd suggest that the two Albas kiss in the film but I'm fairly certain such an event would signal the apocalypse. In all honesty, what more would we have to live for? Check out Alba's interview below. Movie Trailers - Movies Blog
