4 Movie Clips from MACHETE

by     Posted 3 years, 244 days ago

One of the highlights of 2007′s Grindhouse was the fake trailer for Machete.  Shortly after the film got released, Robert Rodriguez’ started  talking about turning the trailer into a feature film with Danny Trejo reprising the role of Machete - a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade.  With fandom excited, production moved ahead.

Since filming wrapped over a year ago on the feature, we’ve gotten a few trailers and a lot of images.  But with the film getting released on September 3, we’ve finally been given our first real look at the movie as Fox has provided us with four clips and you can check them out after the jump – along with the synopsis. With a cast that includes Danny Trejo, Steven Seagal, Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, and Jeff Fahey, I can’t wait to finally see the finished film next month:

While some movies only have one synopsis….for some reason Machete has three.  Here’s one of them, with the other two below the clips.

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.

“Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. The feature version of the trailer finds 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.”

After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don’t know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.
