Mel Gibson Has an Army of Super Soldiers and a Cape in New MACHETE KILLS Red-Band Trailer

     September 17, 2013


A new red-band trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming sequel Machete Kills has been released online, and it’s just the right amount of silly.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  The trailer shows off plenty of unbridled carnage at the hands of Trejo’s Machete, but we also get to see more of Mel Gibson’s villainous character, who describes himself as a “fucker-people-upper.”  It remains to be seen whether the film will be fun and absurd rather than just absurd, but it looks like we’ll get to see one hell of a Mel Gibson performance regardless.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sofia VergaraMichelle RodriguezAmber Heard, Charlie SheenLady GagaAntonio BanderasJessica AlbaDemian BichirAlex VegaVanessa HudgensCuba Gooding Jr.William Sadler, and Marko ZarorMachete Kills opens in theaters on October 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Machete Kills:

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.

      agreed, I literally feel dumber for watching that. Utterly awful. I hope it bombs.

        Did you see the first one? I bet you didn’t. You’re probably too young to appreciate b-movies anyway.

      • TheMonarch

        I don’t think being too young to appreciate b-movies has anything to do with it. (For the record, I myself am not too young [or THAT young, anymore, for what it's worth], and I do enjoy old b-movies.) Machete was just a shit film. Machete 2: Attack of the Clones looks not to be any better. Awful is awful, and it’s not right to compare them to classic b-movies and better ‘sploitation flicks (personally, I loved Planet Terror). The only thing good about Machete was Danny Trejo. And Mayra Leal and her copious nudity. The first deserves a better film built around his character. And the second has been replaced by…what, “I’ve always been a lady on the *inside*” Gaga?

        Someone doesn’t get that this is all a joke.

  • ItsNotaSchooner

    loved the over the top “b-movie-ness” of the first one, can’t wait to see this one, looks fantastic in that oh so cheesy way!

  • TheMonarch

    The first one felt like a ridiculous parody of the original premise trailer (released for Grindhouse). Unbelievably, this one feels like a ridiculous parody of the first one. Are they trying to build an endless-feedback self-recursive crap-factory?

    • Nick Gadman

      Yes, that’s the point, it’s a parody – the first one (as hit and miss as it was) was a riff on the Grindhouse trailer and the sequel is just pushing the joke one step further by commenting on how crap sequels up the ante with violence. I’m not the biggest fan but they achieved what they set out to do.

  • TheMonarch

    Also, if they’re going to go for deliberately cheap effects, they should do it right and go for (or at least the look of) pre-cgi effects. Who the fuck is nostalgic for bad cgi?!

  • El Alto

    I wish RR would try to make a movie that was something original. Not a re-hash of a re-has of a re-hash. Sad, he once had so much promise…

    I get RR’s passion for B-movies but I can’t believe he is throwing money at this ‘franchise’. I would have thought 1 movie was enough. Why doesn’t he move onto something with a bigger audience.

  • Cog

    Looks like a Bad Sy FY channel movie. I work for my money, won’t waste it on this…Red Box all the way.

    They showed way too much. Then again this bullshit will end up on VOD while still in theaters.

  • Jack le Critic

    Haven’t we had enough of this “parody” crap? It’s not funny anymore, it celebrates a scene that no-one with a mature mind thought was any good…they were simply dreadful, naive movies. Tongue in cheek is ok for a while, but it’s not meant to stay lodged there – ok Rodriguez, we know you love shit movies…but you’re quite good at making decent ones, so stop this Machete crap and give us your “Godfather” ;)
