Machete has a special message on this Cinco De Mayo, a special message for Arizona. Machete is the name of the main character, played by Danny Trejo (pictured above), in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez movie of the same name. The film also stars Jessica Alba, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, Robert DiNero and Steven Segal, just to name a few. Machete is an expansion of a fake trailer Rodriguez directed for the 2007 film Grindhouse and a spin-off of the Spy Kids films (since the lead character is the uncle of the protagonists).
It was here in Austin that Rodriguez Rodriguez announced that he would be expanding his trailer for Machete into a feature-length film. The film will be released in the U.S. on September 3 by 20th Century Fox. If you haven’t yet heard of Machete or seen the trailer, checkout the special Cinco de Mayo edition in which Machete himself sends a personal message to those idiots creating racist policy in Arizona.
