First Trailer for MACHETE KILLS [Updated]

     May 30, 2013


Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Machete Kills.  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.  This trailer was released on Yahoo!’s Spanish-language site, but the dialogue is in English.  It looks like fun, but so did Machete, which made Trejo a supporting character in his own movie.  A large cast is fun, but Rodriguez always seems to have trouble finding the right balance (he had the same problem with Once Upon a Time in Mexico).  Hopefully, Machete Kills will be an improvement on the first film. [Update: We've added the English-language version, which is the same except now English-language speakers can understand the narration]

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sofia Vergara, Michelle RodriguezAmber Heard, Charlie SheenLady GagaAntonio BanderasJessica AlbaDemian BichirAlex VegaVanessa HudgensCuba Gooding Jr.William SadlerMarko Zaror, and Mel Gibson.  Machete Kills opens September 13th.

    man… why don’t these movies have the “grind-house” look to them?

      I’m sure some scratches and degradation will be present in the full version. Machete was more fun in theory than execution but I’ll check this out regardless.

    Ha ha. There’s a hair-fine line between good shit and shitty shit, and these films just get deeper shittyside.

    I want to like these films, I really do but man Rodriguez has really lost his way. Now instead of making grindhouse genre films into good films, he’s just making grindhouse films that was a fad for a reason.

      I agree…Rodriguez just seems really, really lazy. His first draft of a script…good enough! Uninteresting action scenes…well, good enough!

    Rodriguez hasn’t been good in a while. I thought Machete was lame. There is a reason the Grindhouse style works, because those movie played it straight. They just happen to be unintentionally funny. You can’t try and recreate that. He should have just made theses movie as earnest as possible and the results would have been better.

    Every movie Rodriguez directed up to Spy Kids 3-D was great. It started downhill from there with only Sin City (being amazing) and Planet Terror (being fun and original). Everything else just feels rushed and no heart in it. Had such high hopes for Machete but I was let down.

      It’s in your suspension of disbelief; absolutely required for rodrigues’z films.

    I don’t get all the hate, I loved the first Machete film. Sure it wasn’t flawless but it did what it set out to do and it did it well.

    Every single picture that collider used for this article shows women is a sexual way. Pretty obvious objectification.
