This a movie that a lot of people have been waiting to see. Ever since the fake trailer for it was shown with the Grindhouse double feature, fans have been itching to see a full-length feature film version. There was a heavily viloent bidding war in the beginning between studios to see who would get to distribute the film, and 20th Century Fox won. They have now announced the release date of the film... September 3rd 2010, Labor Day weekend.
The film was shot last summer, and Predators will end up on the big screen before it does. Robert Rodriguez wrote and co-directed Machete with Ethan Maniquis, his longtime editor, and the film stars are Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Steven Seagal, Don Johnson, Rose McGowan and Lindsay Lohan.
The highly skilled Federale Machete is hired by some unsavory types to assassinate a senator. But just as he's about to take the shot, he notices someone aiming at him and realizes he's been set up. He barely survives the sniper's bullet, and is soon out for revenge on his former employers, with the reluctant assistance of his old friend Cheech Marin, who has become a priest and taken a vow of nonviolence. If you hire him to take out the bad guys, make sure the bad guys aren't you!
