If you’ve been a fan of Robert Rodriguez’s tongue-in-cheek, over-the-top exploitation action films, then you probably know that his oft-delayed Machete sequel is just a week away. Twice delayed, the film will now be in cinemas on October 11th – and Robert and company have released a brand new 3D trailer today to get you hyped up for it.
Yes, it’s 3D! No, you don’t need any fancy things like glasses to view it in 3D. Go ahead and watch it above.
Well, it’s a smart way to simulate 3D, even if it’s not actually 3D…
With such a stellar cast, expensive effects and this 3D trailer, I wonder if it’s possible to sue Robert Rodriguez for false advertising – it might be an exploitation movie at the core, but the production values are phenomenal.
Anyway, if you liked Machete, you should rest easy. It’s a true sequel to the first movie in every way, and it takes everything from the first movie; the adrenaline-pumping action, the cheeky dialogues, the absurd plot and the ridiculous characters, and multiplies it all by ten.
The plot follows Danny Trejo’s law-enforcer-turned-secret-agent, who is hired by the U.S. President (played by Charlie Sheen) to stop Mendez (Demián Bichir), a madman intent upon launching a missile strike on Washington D.C., and stars Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Antonio Banderas, Lady Gaga, Zoe Saldana, Amber Heard, Cuba Gooding Jr. and a host of other famous celebrities.
