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've seen trailers presented in 3D before, but these would require you to be wearing 3D glasses while staring at your computer and honestly, we've tried it, and it usually just gives us a headache. But, this is something pretty cool. It's a 3D 'Machete Kills' trailer that plays in 3D right on your computer, with no glasses. Confused? Just click play and see for yourself.
'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.
Michelle Rodriguez returns for 'Machete Kills' as Shé, Machete's revolutionary friend and fellow ass-kicker in the upcoming grindhouse-flavored sequel from Robert Rodriguez. In this new 30 second highlight and promotional reel, Rodirguez gets out some corny one-liners, like the cringe-worthy "I smell fish taco," and we get to see her fire off a few guns and do what a revolutionary does best. Hopefully we'll get more of these character-specific reels in the weeks to come -- especially now that we've gotten a brief glimpse at Amber Heard's character.
If 'Machete Kills' is any indication, director Robert Rodriguez has exceptional taste in women. Just look at the cast, which is filled with names like Jessica Alba, an all-grown-up Alexa Vega and Amber Heard. Not only that, but he knows what the fans like, seeing them sexy and guns a blazin'. Just watch out for Sofia Vergara. Her new 'Machete Kills' poster reveals her sexiness could also mean the death of you.
