After opening to just $5M, the sequel to Machete dropped 66% before tanking further with another 77% drop.
Even the boost of Lady Gaga and Sofia Vergara made no difference, which in coincidence could be related to TheWrap reporting that Gaga’s “Artpop” lost Interscope a whopping $25M. How quickly stars become irrelevant…
Coupled with mostly negative reviews, the shocking failure of Machete Kills has left a huge question mark for the promised end of the trilogy, Machete Kills Again…In Space.
Speaking of, the faux trailer for Machete Kills Again…In Space played in theaters with Machete Kills. The Robert Rodriguez-directed tease has leaked online, and can now be viewed below.
Personally, I’m still excited to see Kills and welcome a third film in space, especially if there’s a lightsaber-machete!
