Based on one of the infamous spoof trailers attached to the Quentin Tarantino-Robert Rodriguez Grindhouse double feature, Machete brings to life the over-the-top action star played by Danny Trejo.

Ain’t It Cool News was paid a visit by Trejo and Rodriguez yesterday who brought with them a Machete trailer which they dubbed as the “illegal” trailer. Rodriguez reportedly convinced Fox to let him make this trailer in response to the political mess surrounding the immingration bill the state of Arizona is attempting to implement.

Funny enough, Machete was shot a year ago, before this Arizona mess and hits on some of these specific issues. I don’t want to talk politics, so we’ll focus on the wild entertainment that can be found in the following trailer. Check our why everyone loves Danny Trejo – This trailer contains inappropriate language and can be considered a red band trailer:


Trejo is generally a bad-ass and this is an incredible role for him to show that off. With Machete becoming a full feature film out of just a trailer and his role in the upcoming Predators, Rodriguez has helped Trejo become an action star in 2010.

20th Century Fox won the bidding war for the rights to Machete and will release the film in theaters this Fall. The star-studded Machete cast, as you can see from the trailer, includes Robert De Niro , Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey and Jessica Alba.

What do you think of the trailer?

Machete hits theaters September 3, 2010.

  1. *dont understand

  2. Could potentially racist film “Machete” be produced With taxpayer funds?
    “Story broke today that “Machete” was made, in part, with help from tax incentives and location access provided by the Texas Film Commission, a division of Governor Rick Perry’s Office. A spokesperson from the organization confirmed that Rodriguez indeed applied for the program and that all of his Troublemaker Studios films have been part of it.”
