Over at Ain’t It Cool News, Harry Knowles is saying that Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo stopped by to give him an “illegal” trailer for the upcoming release of once-Grindhouse trailer, now full length feature, Machete.
Evidently the plot of the film is in line with the current anti-immigration fervor in Arizona, so given the political resonance, the trailer is a message for Arizona.
Here was the fake trailer put together for Grindhouse:
Soon after Grindhouse, Rodriguez began making a full movie from the Machete trailer. It will be released September 3, 2010.
The cast for the film is ridiculous: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Tom Savini, and Lindsay Lohan make up this Mexploitation of awesomeness.
I was worried that they’d change a lot of stuff from the original trailer, but this has me more excited than any movie in about evar!
Steven Seagal? Robert DeNiro? Jesus christ.
Also, the part where he whips out those knives on a rope thingie had me giggling like an idiot. I CANNOT wait for this.
I love the other catch line: “WE DIDN’T CROSS THE BORDER, THE BORDER CROSSED US!”
Cheese to the core. But man, they’re going to spread that cheese all over the bloody taco that this movie will produce.
This is great and I think this will be the funnest comedy this year…
I love Don Johnson’s line, “I will have that Mexican dancing the Bolardo at the end of a rope”…..Great stuff…
