Personally, I think 20th Century Fox saved the best Machete poster for last. It could be because Lindsay Lohan gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, but this actor-centric poster is currently set as my desktop background. Come on in and revel in its blasphemous glory!
While Lindsay was nowhere to be seen in last week’s brand new Machete trailer, the New York Daily News is reporting that 20th Century Fox released Lohan’s poster after she was left out of the latest promotional material.
I’m not sure it’s entirely fair to say that she was removed from the trailer as a result of her jail sentence – isn’t her part little more than a glorified cameo, after all? But I’m loving the exploitation vibe this one gives off – definitely more than any other of the femme fatale posters. You can bet I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for a chance to snag one of these for my office.

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. Look for it in theatres September 3rd, 2010.
The feature 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.
