New Trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s MACHETE starring Danny Trejo

     May 5, 2010

Robert Rodriguez has released a special “Illegal” trailer for Machete just in time for Cinco de Mayo.  Based on the fake trailer that was attached in front of Grindhouse, Machete stars Danny Trejo as” a Mexican ex-Federale out to hunt down the corrupt politician (Robert De Niro) who betrayed him.”  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.  More Machete after the jump:

You can watch the ridiculous (in the best way possible) and fun trailer over at AICN. Machete hits theaters on September 5th.  Here’s the synopsis:

“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.”
