Sharp international trailer arrives for Machete
Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse action movie Machete gets a new international trailer…
If The Expendables left you hungry for more testosterone-soaked, unfeasibly over-the-top action, Danny Trejo's on the way with Machete.
Like The Expendables, its plot is but a flimsy excuse for a series of outlandish action sequences, and again, like Sylvester Stallone's movie, Machete's cast is jam-packed with recognisable names and faces, with a particularly crumpled, seedy looking Robert De Niro starring as a villainous senator, Cheech Marin appearing as a shotgun-toting padre, and special effects legend Tom Savini putting in a welcome cameo.
The latest trailer isn't hugely different from the ones we've already seen. There are lingering shots of a sultry Jessica Alba, and star Danny Trejo looking particularly mean on his motorcycle, but we're happy to get another glimpse of Trejo's swordfight with Steven Seagal. That's one scene that should be worth the price of admission by itself.
Machete's due to hit UK cinemas on 26 November.
