Machete to Slash Labor Day Weekend

by at . Comments

Get ready! Machete returns to the big screen this Labor Day weekend! 20th Century Fox has set the theatrical release of the Robert Rodriguez / Ethan Maniquis grindhouse expansion of Machete on September 3. 

Machete, which is based on the fake trailer of the same name that premiered in front of the 2007 Rodriguez / Tarantino double-feature Grindhouse, follows 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 (Michelle 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.

For a slice of Machete, check out the original fake trailer below!
