20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Machete and you can check it out after the jump. The reason the trailer is hitting the net today is it’s attached to prints of Predators (which I really enjoyed). If you remember, for Cinco de Mayo, a special “Illegal” trailer for Machete hit the net. While the new trailer is decent, I thought the first one was much better as it sold what the movie is really about. Either way, I’m super excited for the movie and can’t wait to check it out in early September. Judge the trailer for yourself after the jump:
“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 (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.”
Written by Rodriguez and co-directed by Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, Machete also features one of the most eclectic casts out there which includes Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, and Steven Segal.
