Make a Date with Machete

Great news for fans eagerly waiting for news on when they will be able to see the feature length version of Machete. Fox just announced when you’ll be able to get down locked and loaded with everyone’s favorite blade-wielding Mexican badass!

Mark down September 3rd, 2010, as the date we can all start swinging! In case you’re out of the loop, Machete was originally a hard-edged trailer featured in Grindhouse that became fanboy fodder since its first showing at the 2006 Comic-Con. “Machete had become my most requested movie, and I never actually made it so when the opportunity arose to answer the call with such an amazing cast, I jumped,” said Rodriguez.

The film stars Jessica Alba (Sin City), Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious), Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls), Cheech Marin (Once Upon a Time in Mexico), Jeff Fahey (“Lost”), Don Johnson, Steven Seagal (Under Siege), and of course Danny Trejo as the lead character.

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.

    With this and “Predators”, Rodriguez is going to have an awesome 2010… 🙂

    They fucked with the wrong Mexican.

    Why doesn’t Jeff Fahey get more mainstream acting gigs? He and Brolin were the best things about Planet Terror, and he’s quite obviously awesome even if a goofy mock trailer like this.

    This sounds immensely bad ass.
    “We are bad guys. That means we’ve got more to do other than bullying companies. It’s fun to lead a bad man’s life.”

    This movie is going to be awesome.
