Tonight, we’re happy to bring you two exclusive images from Robert Rodriguez’ upcoming Grindhouse-style action flick Machete. The film stars Danny Trejo as a man out for revenge after—to quote the trailer—”they fucked with the wrong Mexican.” The “they” being a corrupt politician (played by Robert De Niro) and his spin doctor (Jeff Fahey). The film looks to have all styles of fun carnage and mayhem. For those who don’t know, Machete is based off a fake trailer featured in Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse. Trejo and Fahey are reprising their roles along with Cheech Marin as a shotgun wielding priest.
One of the “lobby cards” we received features Jessica Alba putting up her dukes. The other has Don Johnson looking slightly more sinister than he did on Nash Bridges. Hit the jump to check out the images, the fake 2007 trailer, the “illegal trailer” (both trailers are NSFW), and the official synopsis. Machete slices up theaters on September 3rd.
Here’s the official synopsis for Robert Rodriguez’ Machete:
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.
