Early announcements on casting from Robert Rodriguez's new El Rey drama 'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series' lacked a bit it star pedigree, its ranks somewhat bolstered by the addition of 'Terminator 2' star Robert Patrick, among others. Now, former 'That '70s Show' and 'Awake' star Wilmer Valderrama has joined the cast in a villainous new role, but of whom, asks no one?
If you saw 'Machete Kills' in the theater, chances are you caught a glimpse at the trailer for 'Machete Kills Again ... In Space,' the promised third entry in the 'Machete' trilogy. Unfortunately, this might be all we get of 'Machete 3,' so enjoy it while you can. Since 'Machete Kills' only brought in $14 million at the box office, we might not be getting the Machete space adventure we were all promised.
We were excited by the prospect of a 'From Dusk Till Dawn' TV series to arrive on Robert Rodriguez's new Latin-themed network El Rey, though the initial announcement of the horror adaptation's cast brought relatively few familiar names. That changes today, as the supernatural horror drama adapting Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 1996 smash has added 'Terminator' and 'True Blood' star Robert Patrick, 'Shameless' vet Madison Davenport, and more!
Some time ago, we heard that Robert Rodriguez would adapt the Rodriguez-Quentin Tarantino classic 'From Dusk Till Dawn' for a new TV series on El Rey, dropping the "From" to simply 'Dusk Till Dawn.' Now, the first cast details from shooting have emerged, with Rodriguez himself to direct the inaugural two episodes!
In 1996, Robert Rodriguez teamed up with Quentin Tarantino for the vampire horror flick 'From Dusk till Dawn.' Directed by Rodriguez from a script by Tarantino, the film follows two criminal brothers (George Clooney and Tarantino himself) as they hijack an RV containing a former preacher and his two teenagers and seek refuge in a seedy bar south of the border. But there's a catch: this bar is overrun by ancient vampires. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
In 1998, director Robert Rodriguez released the high school horror film 'The Faculty.' Written by 'Scream' scribe Kevin Williamson, the film follows a group of mismatched high school students who must overcome their differences and band together when mysterious alien parasites take over the bodies of their peers and teachers. Fifteen years later, we take a look back at the awesome ensemble cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
'Machete Kills,' Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to 2010's 'Machete,' ditches the grindhouse aesthetic and homage, and instead tries to emulate a late-'80s, early-'90s action flick -- basically, Rodriguez made the kind of movie he often makes. The result is an uninspired, joyless and oft-trashy exercise in self-indulgence. Rodriguez has spent his career making films the way he wants in his own backyard, and while you kind of have to admire the audacity of it all, the intent is questionable at best.
