20th Century Fox has released a batch of images, posters and art work for the upcoming Robert Rodriguez film Machete, which is set to open up in theaters on September 3rd. The grindhouse style film is based on the awesome fake trailer shown in the 2007 double feature film Grindhouse. Both Danny Trejo and Jeff Fahey are reprising their original roles in the feature film version.
Machete, co-directed by Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, also stars, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Don Johnson and even Steven Seagal.
The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his "holy" brother, and April (Lindsey Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
I'm pretty confident that Rodriguez will have a panel at Comic-con this year to show off some exclusive footage. Here are a batch of photo's which come from several different movie blogs. Enjoy!
