The first official trailer for Robert Rodriguez‘s grindhouse flick Machete has safely landed on the internet. The movie was born from Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s dual-effort, Grindhouse, where Machete made a cameo as one of the many faux trailers used to set the tone as an old school double feature.
The movie is co-directed by Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, and tells the story of a Mexican Federale gun (or blade)-for-hire who’s brought in to do a job that turns out to be a major setup. Eventually he recovers and sets off for bloody revenge. What more do you need than that, really?
Continue on over to check out the trailer now.
The likely cult-classic-in-the-making stars Danny Trejo as Machete, and he’s joined by a great supporting cast that includes Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Lindsay Lohan, and Don Johnson.
And is it just me, or does the trailer say “introducing Don Johnson”? Has he been gone that long already?
Machete will open fire on theaters this September 3, 2010.
