20th Century Fos has released the official trailer for Machete of which I, along with several other websites, debuted exclusive images late last night. (Speaking of the images from last night, be sure to look at the poster JoBlo has up.)
The film, for those of you that clicked on this article and have ignored all other news up to this point, is based on the faux trailer that was presented as part of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 Grindhouse double feature. The feature adaptation centers on the renegade former Mexican Federale, Machete (Danny Trejo), as he 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 ShÃ© (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 will be released by 20th Century Fox on September 3. Check out the trailer directly below.
