Watch the explosive first teaser trailer after the jump.

There was a little bit of video from the set of Machete Kills that leaked out a week or so back, but was quickly taken down. Now there’s a replacement, in the form of a TV set visit to the set of Robert Rodriguez‘s latest weird action flick. Danny Trejo returns as Machete, and this time he faces (among other things) Mel Gibson playing a character who is “out to get the President.”(With the President played by Charlie Sheen.)

The idea of Machete Kills has been floating around ever since it was promised in the end credits of the first Machete, back in 2010. But it’s only recently that the project’s really begun picking up steam, with Danny Trejo entering talks to reprise his role this past February.
Now, as Machete Kills comes together to start shooting later this month, it’s been locking down cast members left and right. Returning stars Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez have both climbed aboard in the past few weeks, as have franchise newcomers Mel Gibson and Demián Bichir (A Better Life). And as of today, the latest fresh face to join the cast is Amber Heard. More after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We just got a look at Get the Gringo, an action film that Mel Gibson co-wrote, financed and starred in. But fans undeterred by the actors offscreen actions might still be hoping for an update on another movie that was announced right around the same time Gibson started work on Get the Gringo. That other project was a Viking epic, and a film for which Gibson said he wanted to work partially in a bygone version of the Norse language.
Turns out that Viking movie isn’t dead. While the update we have is minor, for those hoping to see the film one day, it is probably a lot better than nothing. Read More »
