New 'Machete' Image Gallery

Machete official website and images

Several websites have posted exclusive images from Machete, the feature-length treatment of the fake trailer that showed with the 2007 Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino sleazefest, Grindhouse.

Being kind as we are here at Screen Rant, we've gone and assembled all of these new pics together in a single image gallery for you to peruse through as you please.

The film costars Steven Seagal as the Texan drug lord Torrez, Lindsay Lohan as Benz's (I presume) daughter, April, and Jessica Alba as an ICE agent hot in pursuit of Machete.  Rodriguez wrote the screenplay in collaboration with his cousin Álvaro and co-directed the flick alongside his longtime associate editor, Ethan Maniquis.

The big challenge for Machete will be whether or not it can maintain the entertainingly ludicrous, pulpy atmosphere of the original Grindhouse trailer for its duration.  The "illegal" Machete movie trailer was amusing enough and the "wronged man on a quest for vengeance" premise is something Rodriguez has handled before in all three entries of his Mexico trilogy.  We'll wait and see if he can deliver yet another funny and violent B-movie experience.

You can help pass the time by checking out the new pics from the film in the gallery below, which includes shots of Trejo looking as intimidating as ever and Alba doing some of her best acting work (re: the kind that doesn't require her to deliver dialogue):
