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.

The network that gifted America The Two Coreys and Biography: Megan Fox is ready to release its new reality spin on COPS entitled Steven Seagal: Lawman. /Film was unable to confirm with A&E at press time that Seagal was shot and killed while akido-chopping a bum huffing duster in midst of crashing a glory hole ring.

Wait, Machete actually needs a script not scrawled by knives in gringo blood? Following the recent, zany casting rundown for the cheapo flick that includes Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, and Steven Seagal (…walk into a bar), Latino Review have the first script review for the unlikely Grindhouse spin-off. You may recall that Jonah Hill was said to have passed on the film after reading a draft by director Robert Rodriguez. Well, LR’s reviewer is non-plussed by his script as well, calling it a rushed, whiz-bang effort, even for the Austin-auteur who sprayed out Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Some choice excerpts and a few thoughts on the project after the jump…

Not too long ago there were rumors that Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis were looking at some outrageous names for Machete, the full-length version of the great Grindhouse trailer starring Danny Trejo. We basically knew that Lindsay Lohan was confirmed after she said as much the other day via Twitter. But now a Variety report on Overnight Productions, the outfit financing Machete, seems to confirm most of the great cast rumors. Details after the jump. Read More »
UPDATE: I would like to thank the NAVY SEALS for reading my post.
We were so close to posting two Steven Seagal items in a single month. It would have made for a Slashfilm record and depressing office party. The contemplative martial artist marinated with MTV on the status of Under Siege 3, the (only?) vehicle that would return him to theaters. As you might expect, Seagal has put a lot of thought into where his John McClane, the Navy Seal chef Casey Rybeck, is headed…
“I personally want it to be something more modern. [long pause] In other words, [long pause] I wouldn’t mind if it was about something more mystical or [five minute pause] maybe extraterrestrial in nature. Some real government top secrets instead of just the typical.” [365 day pause]
His proposal was caught on video. Reliably, the actor says there are offers on the table. We previously wondered if Sylvester Stallone was taking Rambo V in a similar direction when he said he wanted to change genres and go “surreal.” Based on recent news of that project moving forward, it seems unlikely. Meanwhile, Jean-Claude’s gone meta- to decent reviews, and Arnold’s still wrapped up with California leaving John Davis’s Predator 3 a pipe dream. Is Seagal the man to defend our planet from space invaders? He sure kicked Eric Bogosian’s egomaniacal ass the last time around.
Discuss: Interested? What’s the ideal plot for Under Siege 3?
Cinematical has a lovely gallery of images for the new Steven Seagal starrer Kill Switch, including the spoilerish one above. Alas, fans hoping for a theatrical comeback from the widow’s peaked wonder (and latest addition to the Geek Squad) will have to make due with an October DVD release and this angina-inducing logline…
Detective Jacob Stillwell (Steven Seagal) is one of the most celebrated homicide detectives in the country. His brutal delivery of street justice is legendary among the men and women of law enforcement. But on this latest case, he may have finally met his match Lazerus, a cunning and perversely violent killer who is on the loose and terrorizing the inner city.
America’s resident Seagalogist, Vern, has already seen the film and reports that Seagal’s dedication to violence is almost worrisome here (he curbs a guy’s teeth on a bar). Kill Switch marks one of the last acting performances by the late Isaac Hayes, and is directed by Jeff King. Next up for Seagal is Ruslan, a straight-to-DVD release, also from King, in which he plays a Russian crime novelist sucked back into the Russian underworld to hand out more street justice and entertain repeat viewers of Kill Switch.
Discuss: …the last Seagal movie you remember watching.
