Over at ComingSoon, they’ve gotten a hold of one of the many character posters for the soon to be released Robert Rodriguez film, Machete. The movie is based off of the fake trailer that was presented during the 2007 double feature film, Grind House, a joint project between Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Jessica Alba is one of the actors who will appear in the ensemble action flick and here’s the first look at her poster.
Check it out below…
In Machete, Alba will play a character by the name of Sartana as you can tell from the heading on her poster. This photo was taken from the American Film Market (AFM), where it made its public debut. Machete will be an old school action film that will feature Rodriguez staple, Danny Trejo in the title role. He along with Alba, will be joined by too many talented and not so talented actors to count. Here’s the lowdown:
Machete (Danny Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Jeff Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro )a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lindsay 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.
I’m sure a high quality version of this poster will pop up sooner than later, but until then keep this one on tap until it shows up.
What do you think of Jessica Alba in Machete?
