A new trailer for the movie version of Robert Rodriguez’ faux-trailer Machete, starring Danny Trejo as the title character, has surfaced. The trailer is sadly not up to par with the previously released trailer, but it does earn its keep by bringing something new and awesome to the table: the first proper look at Steven Seagal as the movie’s bad guy!
It’s a pretty weird feeling being excited about a movie starring Trejo and Seagal, but nonetheless that’s what I am — excited about a movie with Trejo and Seagal as the two main stars. I’ve had my doubts about Machete, but with the stellar supporting cast of Cheech Marin, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez among others, paired with Seagal’s bad-ass moves with the swords and Trejo’s good one-liners, I think Sylvester Stallone might just have a rival here for the best over the top action movie of the year. Watch the trailer below the break, and share your thoughts on the badassery!
