'Machete Kills Again... in Space' Trailerized, Will Never Happen

Published by

There's no polite way to put this, sometimes filmmakers crawl up their own butt and don't leave. Many of the indie auteurs who were thought to grow and develop into something more eventually reveal a shallow bag of tricks and keep going to the same well for diminishing returns. Example: Robert Rodriguez. Machete Kills bombed, but it was supposedly the start of a...

Weekend Box Office Roundup: 'Gravity' is a Phenomenon, 'Captain Phillips'...

Published by

GRAVITY
These days, unless a film opens the week before a big holiday, the standard second week drop off is 30-40%, with often huge openings leading to a 50-60% decline in the second week. Gravity opened to $55 Million, which is pretty big. And in its second week is only off twenty percent. That's unheard of these days, but Gravity is just that kind...

Box Office Predictions: 'Gravity' Trumps 'Captain Phillips'

Published by

This weekend both Captain Phillips and Machete Kills hit screens, but they can't compete with Gravity. The question is if there's enough box office oxygen for either to survive. And though that could be read as a play on the astronauts in Gravity, this is October, and these are three "adult"...

'Machete Kills' Gets A 3D Trailer, Despite Not Being A 3D Film

Published by

machete-kills-header
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...

'Machete Kills': Cool New Images And A Poster To Boot

The fall season is here which means all of the fun movies of the summer are no more, or so you think. Director Robert Rodriguez is taking advantage of the drama-filled season by throwing some mindless action into the mix with Machete Kills. If you've seen the first movie than you realize how incredibly ridiculous this exploitation flick is and more...

There's been a lot of discussion over who will be playing the main villain in the upcoming sequel The Expendables 3, one that in some ways feels completely unnecessary. Nevertheless, the search continues for the villain, but it may be over if the latest rumor surrounding the action franchise is true. Word has it that Mel Gibson will be playing the...

'Machete Kills' Trailer: Danny Trejo Returns to Kill

Published by

amber-heard-danny-trejo-machete-kills
If Robert Rodriguez's first Machete movie felt like a half good idea stretched a little thin, then his follow-up Machete Kills looks like a no budget remake. The first (minute-long) trailer announces the film's September release date, and shows Danny Trejo looking cool, and the film's list of name actors. But watching this it's hard to...

'Machete Kills' Poster Shows Sofía Vergara And Her New Bra

If you wanted to, you certainly could try and kill somebody with the weight of a person's gigantic breasts. But if you're Sofía Vergara and happen to be in Robert Rodriguez's new movie Machete Kills, then the director may have a number of new ideas on how to smite your enemies through the power of boobs. 

'Machete Kills': Alexa Vega Shows A Lot Of Skin In New Image

Published by

Grind House
It's always kind of odd to see a former child star turn into a possible sex icon. It's not like actress Alexa Vega has been shying away from the spotlight, but considering the last time most people have seen the actress was in the first couple of Spy Kids movies, she definitely has grown up a bit. Not much proof is needed aside from the brand new photo released out...

Lady Gaga Gets A 'Machete Kills' Role, New Character Poster

Sofia Vergara in Machete Kills
It looks like Machete Kills really is happening—after the news that such Hollywood trainwrecks as Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen have actually been cast together in the film, one almost had to wonder if it was all some strange fever dream on the part of director Robert Rodriguez, and not a real film.  However, thanks to a behind the scenes video courtesy of NuevOn, you can actually...

Charlie Sheen Cast As U.S. President In 'Machete Kills'

Because the Machete franchise has increasingly become a refuge for failed or disgraced stars—say hello, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, and Mel Gibson—it makes complete sense that Charlie Sheen has been officially cast as the President of the United States in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete sequel, Machete Kills.

Amber Heard Joins 'Machete Kills'

Drive 3D - Amber Heard as Piper
After news broke that Robert Rodriguez was inexplicably filming Machete Kills, a sequel to 2010’s Machete (itself a spin-off from a Grindhouse pseudo-trailer), the question became: who will show up to star in this thing?  A random cavalcade of stars showed up for the last one (Robert De Niro, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan); so far, Machete Kills has nabbed...

A sequel to 2005’s Sin City has been rumored and in discussion for so long it’s become a kind of urban legend—the kind of thing that people always talk about (especially director Robert Rodriquez and Sin City creator Frank Miller), but everyone knows would never really happen.  Well, that appears to no longer be the case, as Dimension Films has sent out an official...
