Machete Kills – that’s what he does, and in his latest movie the deadly ex-Federale is out to take down an insane arms dealer played by Luther Voz and save the President of the United States (Carlos Estevez AKA Charlie Sheen) from being blown up along with the White House by a missile. That’s about all the motivation Machete needs to get on the road and begin his second adventure that, like the original Machete, is directed by Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi).

If the family-friendly footage was beginning to kill your enthusiasm a little, then why not indulge in a new red band trailer for Machete Kills that doesn’t pull any punches… or bullets. Or helicopters for that matter. Featuring another glimpse at pop star Lady Gaga in the role of La Chameleón, as well as the other deadly ladies of Machete’s world, including Michelle Rodriguez as Luz and Amber Heard as Miss San Antonio.

The quality of violence in the trailer is a little mixed. While there are some funny and creative kills involved, gore purists might lament the use of CGI blood in places where practical effects would have been just as easy to accomplish and would probably have looked better. Meanwhile, Sofía Vergara’s entire arsenal (and possibly her character as well) seems to be based around sexual innuendo, though perhaps that’s just her breast- and crotch-mounted machine guns giving the wrong impression.

When the last trailer was released, we noted that much of the marketing around Machete seems to be focused on the more widely-known players like Charlie Sheen, so it’s gratifying to see the red band trailer pay a little more attention to the movie’s central character, mainly through ensuring that his name is said as many times as possible.

Machete Kills is still looking like something of a mixed bag, but there’s a lot of strong material in this trailer and it’s hard not to love the overblown and ridiculous tone of the whole thing.


Machete Kills opens in U.S. theaters on October 11th, 2013.

  1. did he just throw a guys intestines into a helicopter?

  2. That was brilliant.

  3. Macheteeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
    Im latin, but I dont like miss Vergara.I think she´s overestimated.
    About the movie.. Yeah lets just watch this mexicanized fairy tale sequel.

    • Well, I’m African and I like her. I think she’s actually pretty funny outside of Modern Family.

  4. Enjoyed the 1st one. And I hope this one does well so we can see that Machette in Space movie.

  5. Machete Kills… Again…. In Space!

    soooo ready

  6. I’m not sure it’s not a good sign that Sofia Vergara was the most over-the-top, grating part of this trailer.

  7. Mel is awesome !
    Glad to see him again !

  8. Mel in this movie reminds me of Michael in gta 5.

  9. I honestly didnt enjoy the first movie, I fell asleep halfway through. I’ll watch this one but I’m not holding my breath.

  10. That looked really just sub par. Although I like the perversity of the Bra/Codpiece thrusting gunfire.

    Best part of the trailer is all the chicks settling into camera, all curvy-like behind Sofia Vi-agra. Other than that, Meh.

    Mel looks like crap.

  11. Sooo…..

    It’s Machete meets…. Austin Power’s Fembots? Wow.

    • Did nobody notice the crotch gun is the same Tom Savini wore in From Dusk To Dawn ?

      • Oh and its international “Buy Dredd” day, so if you loved Dredd and want a sequel go out and buy a Bluray or rent on ITunes or see it on Netflix.

        • I bought the “Make a DREDD Sequel” T-shirt to do my bit for it.

          #1 in the UK and #12 in the US last time I checked the Facebook page.

          • Dredd didn’t do well cause it had a plot and Machette film lovers can’t follow anything that might be too complicated

  12. I ♥ the first one and I can’t wait for the sequel …

  13. Awe intestine’s people into helicopters, hilarious! I hated the first movie, this ones looks better, lol. I can’t wait.

    • You watch this movie with 3D glasses, it’s still gonna suck
