I am an unapologetic fan of the first Machete movie so was pretty stoked to see this morning that Machete Kills is happening and that it's going to hit 9/13/13.

" As director Robert Rodriguez starts to turn his attention to Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, he's put the finishing touches to his Machete sequel, Machete Kills, and release details have finally been announced.

The movie is set to arrive in cinemas, in the US at least, on September 13th 2013, with Danny Trejo reprising the title role. Joining him in the cast are Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen, Michelle Rodriguez, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson and Lady Gaga."

I dunno what the fuck Lady Gaga is doing in this movie and Sheen is probably novelty casting at its worst, but then putting Gibson in the movie could be a stroke of genius. The first movie was a lot of fun in the theater - some dimwits brought a little kid in with them and promptly removed said little kid during the opening scene (it's rated R for a reason, stupid) - no reason to expect this second one won't be as well.

Trejo seems to take any role offered to him and he's not the draw to me that he once was, but I'm completely okay with a Machete series so long as they can keep them fun.

Apparently if the second film does well enough to get the third film made, the third film will take Machete... to space (http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/machete/24109/machete-kills-release-date-announced)?

I liked the first one, not a masterpiece or anything but it was reasonably fun. Better than Hobo with a Shotgun imo. What they really need to do though is pump up the nudity, especially with Alba in this one (Gaga..no so sure).

Alba won't do it.

Yep,she has said many times she won't do nudity. Which sucks cause her looks are all she has going for her. She is a horrible actress.

She is a horrible actress.

Not THAT bad......I have definitely seen a LOT worse...

But of course, nudity would kick her up a few notches on the grade scale!!:biggrin:

Part of it is she keeps getting big roles and she can't handle them. Sure there are worse actresses. But they don't keep getting high profile roles like Alba does.

Lady Gaga grosses me out. Can't explain why. ANd I still haven't seen the frist Machete. Been meaning to, but didn't buy the BD since there wasn't a commentary. Rodriguez gives great commentary.
