I was one of the smart people who went and saw Grindhouse as a double feature in the theaters. And one of the best parts about the experience was getting to watch “trailers” during the intermission. One of those trailers happened to be for a movie called Machete.
As we all know, Robert Rodriguez and buddies created a series of fake trailers to show between Planet Terror and Death Proof. This was to help give a nostalgic feel to seeing a grindhouse double feature. One of those trailers was so well received that Rodriguez decided to go ahead and turn it into a full length feature film.
Machete stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Steven Seagal, Jeff Fahey, Rose McGowan, Electra and Elise Avellan and Tom Savini.
Check out both trailers below.
