Yesterday, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, Robert Rodriguez released the first trailer for his upcoming “Mexploitation” film Machete which stars veteran character actor Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriquez, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba … and Lindsay Lohan. This timely film, which highlights the tension in the US concerning illegal immigration, seems willing to add new spark to the ongoing and sometimes controversial issue. The film makes no qualms about being a violent “Mexploitation” film … it’s coming whether you like it or not:
I’m a longtime fan of Rodriguez’s work and I’ve already watched this trailer about 15 times … I love it entirely. I’m extremely curious to see how others will receive this film. Will it find love and support from the Latino community? Will it be shunned and rejected? Will it prove to be box office gold … or poison? I think the trailer gives the viewer a very good idea of what the film will be like. Check it out after the jump and see what you think of this first look at Machete …
Yes … this film deffo makes a statement. I can’t lie, tho, I am all about this film. I cannot wait to see it in full on the big screen. What do y’all think of Machete … does this film look like something you’d be interested in seeing?
