The Machete madness keeps pouring in as Bloody Disgusting scored two exclusive character banners from the Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis co-directed feature film version of the faux trailer included in Grindhouse back in 2007. The first features Don Johnson as “Lt. Stillman” with the second displaying badass 80’s action star Steven Seagal as “Torrez”! In theaters September 3 from Twentieth Century Fox, Machete (Danny Trejo) is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. Machete hits theaters September 3.
“The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.”
