Jessica Alba in Spy Kids 4
At the end of the new Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World trailer, it says the film will be in 4-D. What does this mean for audiences?

Machete - Machete's Angry
Machete is an old school, grind house action flick with guns, knives, and a strong political undertone. The last description doesn't really fit but that didn't stop Robert Rodriguez from using this trailer turned film to vocalize his disdain for U.S. immigration policies.
