After seeing Sofia Vergara show of her barrels on a poster for the sequel Machete Kills from director Robert Rodriguez, we knew this grindhouse follow-up was going to be another crazy bit of action nonsense starring Danny Trejo. Now we get a taste of the film with first teaser trailer, showing off the eclectic cast including the return of Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba, along with new cast members like William Sadler, Amber Heard, Demian Bichir and Charlie Sheen (or as he's listed in the trailer, Carlos Estevez).
The introduction by Rodriguez and Trejo and the trailer narration are in Spanish, but the actual footage from the movie is in English. The trailer doesn’t delve too much into plot specifics, probably because the plot is just an excuse to feature all kinds of outsized characters and their over-the-top antics. But if you’re curious, the story centers on the ex-Federale Machete, who as we know from the first movie is a tough man to kill even though there are many who’d like to do just that. His skills are put to the test when called upon by the U.S. president to stop a billionaire (Mel Gibson) who wants to wreak havoc on the world by launching a missile into space.
Open Road Films releases the sequel in theaters on September 13th .
