One of the single coolest aspects of Robert Rodriguez
and Quentin Tarantino's'Grindhouse'
experience was all the mock trailers to ridiculous B-movies that never happened (but we wished were real). A trailer wasn't enough for Rodriguez, as he has turned 'Machete'
-- the faux-'80s explosion-filled action flick starring Danny Trejo
-- from fake trailer to real feature-length movie. And now the trailer for that
movie is here. We know this is legitimate, because it features Robert DeNiro
Trejo plays the title character, an ex-Federale -- who loves guns almost as much as he loves knives and women -- that is double-crossed and left for dead in an statewide Texas anti-immigration conspiracy. To fight back against corrupt politicians, hitmen, and a sword-wielding Steven Seagal
, he loads up the weapons and gains help from Cheech Marin
, Michelle Rodriguez
and Jessica Alba
