Here’s a novel approach to film advertising—a 3D trailer that’s not really 3D for a film that was neither filmed or released in 3D format. Sure, it sounds a little ridiculous, but when we’re discussing a film called Machete Kills, about a guy named Machete who, well, kills, I suppose it makes an oddball kind of sense. So, with that in mind, here is the 3D-but-technically-not-really trailer for Machete Kills.
Robert Rodriguez’s latest opus of quasi-grindhouse fare features an appropriately over the top cast (Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Lady Gaga, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, William Sadler, Antonio Banderas, and Cuba Gooding Jr.), all of whom you can see in the trailer below. Maybe it’s not exactly real 3D that requires silly glasses, but it does feature a cacophony of imagery that explodes outside of the video player frame and all around your computer screen, so hey, that’s something. Check it out:
The plot of Machete Kills (if you really need to know that kind of thing) involves mega-badass Machete teaming up with the president to eliminate an insane arms dealer and a warlord who are hell-bent on mass destruction.
