There are a lot of cool things happening this week at the San Diego Comic-Con, but by far one of the coolest just landed in our inbox: a chance to eat tacos served by Robert Rodriguez and several cast members from Machete, followed by an outdoor screening of exclusive SDCC footage from the film and a party that’s open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
The details of the July 22nd event can be found in the below invite, which you can print out and redeem for a free taco, but that’s not even all! Rodriguez has recorded a special greeting just for the Comic-Con fans.
Machete 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.
