Open Road will release Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills at the end of the week and I figured it would be a good time to put up my interview with stars Danny Trejo and Alexa Vega. The two have been appearing in films together since Spy Kids in 2001 – when Vega was 12 – so naturally it’s a bit difficult for Trejo to process Vega’s appearance in the “adult” Machete Kills.
Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Amber Heard, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos, Charlie Sheen, Elise Avellan, Electra Avellan, William Sadler, Lady Gaga, Vanessa Hudgens and Marko Zaror also star.
In theaters October 11, “Machete Kills is an action-packed thrill ride about the adventures of legendary secret agent Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo). In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Carlos Estevez) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins. Breaking all the rules, visionary director Robert Rodriguez leads this star-studded ensemble on one of the wildest adventures to save the world ever captured on film!“
