If we know anything about Danny Trejo's badass alter ego Machete Cortez, it's that Machete...kills.
And he kills...a lot.
So it stands to reason that for the character's third cinematic appearance -- following that trailer in Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse (2007) and his feature debut in Machete (2010) -- the sequel to that modern exploitation classic would focus on what Machete does best: kill.
And when Machete Kills on the big screen, a measly two dimensions just won't do that kind of carnage justice -- which is why our own special effects wizards have gone and pumped up the Machete Kills trailer into a crazy 3-D explosion of over-the-top, Machete-fueled, action-y goodness.
No, really...you're gonna want to check this out...
This time around, Machete gets recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) to stop a deadly missile attack on Washington, D.C. That puts the ex-Federale head-to-head with an international arms dealer (Mel Gibson) bent on sparking riots around the globe.
Any world where Charlie Sheen is the President has to be worth at least a look, right?
In addition to Trejo, Sheen and Gibson, Machete Kills also stars Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Demian Bichir, Jessica Alba, Zoe Saldana and Lady Gaga.
Feel free to keep watching this exclusive 3-D trailer over and over again on a loop...that is, until Machete Kills hits theaters Oct. 11.
