A couple months back, we got a sneak preview of Robert Rodriguez’s Machete thanks to an a special “illegal” movie trailer released online for Cinco De Mayo. The real movie trailer is attached to the Rober Rodriguez-produced Predators, which hits theaters this weekend. But you don’t have to head to your local multiplex to see the new trailer, as it is now online and embedded after the jump.
I actually prefer the original Grindhouse faux trailer to the real full length trailer. Which ius strange since the real trailer features a bunch of big stars and a much bigger budget (estimated at $20 million). I think it might be that I just prefer the retro scratch-filled version. That said, the movie still looks like a bad-ass b-movie with an interesting cast.Watch the trailer now below.
Robert Rodriguez has released a special “illegal” movie trailer for Machete. Yes, that’s right — the feature length adaptation of the fake trailer created for Grindhouse, now has a real movie trailer. The trailer features a special “Cinco De Mayo message for ARIZONA”, a political story which has been making headlines recently, but is actually a big part of this film which was shot a year ago.

[Update: As he casts Machete, Robert Rodriguez seems bound and determined to upstage Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables. Now The Playlist has a good source that says Steven Seagal is also on the list. More to the point, it seems like he’s not just on the ‘in talks’ list, but much closer to being set to be in the film.]
Robert Rodriguez is finally getting around to direct a feature film adaptation of the infamous Grindhouse faux movie trailer Machete, with he will co-direct with his longtime editor Ethan Maniquis. Last we heard, production was scheduled to begin before the end of July. BloodyDisgusting obviously has spies in the Rodriguez camp as they’ve broken a bunch of stories on the Rodriguez-produced Predators, and now has a crazy list of actors/actresses who will be featured in the film.

Earlier today it was confirmed that Robert Rodriguez would be developing/directing a reboot of Predator titled Predators. We speculated that Rodriguez’s next film would be the futuristic action thriller Nerveracker which has an announced 2010 release date, but Variety reports that Rodriguez will be returning to the Grindhouse before he goes to the future.
