20th Century Fox has provided ComingSoon.net with two exclusive lobby cards that feature photos of Jessica Alba and Steven Seagal in Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis’ Machete, opening in theaters on September 3rd. The film is based on the “fake” trailer in Rodriguez’s 2007 Grindhouse, featuring Danny Trejo and Jeff Fahey reprising their original roles.
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 (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 (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
