If you were wondering who was going to star in Robert Rodriguez‘ sequel to his own Machete: Check out this trailer for Machete Kills. It’s got everything you love about the first film, although and I hope it’s just the editing in this trailer, I hope Danny Trejo’s character isn’t reduced to one-liners even more in this. Nothing against corny one-liners per se, but comedic timing in this trailer isn’t as great as they think it is.
So how about this trailer? Charlie Sheen is in it (as the president), Mel Gibson (aptly playing a villain), Lady Gaga (in a classy red dress), Michelle Rodriguez (looking tough), Jessica Alba (doing Lord knows what), Amber Heard (playing a Miss Bala type character), Cuba Gooding Jr. (remember? he won the Oscar), Vanessa Hudgens (doing her usual face), Antonio Banderas (with a mustache!) and that busty woman who purposely speaks with an over-exaggerated Spanish accent from Modern Family (showing off her large breast, once more).
Machete Kills comes out in American theaters September 13th, 2013. I’m still excited for it, but a bit less than in my last post. Hopefully that’s a good thing so I won’t have unrealistic expectations about it.
