Fox has released a new trailer for “Machete” and you can check it out after the jump. This is a little different than the “Illegal” trailer released for Cinco de Mayo. This “safe” and less racial war inciting trailer will be attached to prints of Robert Rodriquez’s “Predators,” which opens today.
“Machete” is written by Rodriguez and co-directed by Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis. It stars Danny Trejo and features a massive cast that includes Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, and Steven Segal.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Machete 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. 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.”
