Interview: Starpulse Goes Mano-A-Mano With Machete Danny Trejo For 'Machete Kills'

1/21/2014 11:20am EST
Machete Kills
Even though he’s been featured in a ton of cool and tasty flicks over the years, the seasoned Danny Trejo has become synonymous with one large knife wielding grindhouse character – Machete.  From the mind of Latin filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and featuring the sullen work of a magnetic Trejo, the "Machete" series has become as well known as apple pie.  On the eve of the release of the latest savory outing entitled "Machete Kills" (out Jan. 21 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment), which has the likes of Amber Heard, Cuba Gooding Jr. and even Carlos Estevez aka Charlie Sheen as of all thi...

Box Office: 'Gravity' Should Prevail Over 'Carrie' Remake

10/18/2013 11:10am EDT
1) Gravity- 31M Weekend, 165M Total

After dipping a mere 22% last week, Gravity is actually gaining back some of the IMAX screens it lost to Captain Phillips. Another similar drop for Gravity should keep it firmly in first place.

2) Carrie- 18M Weekend, 18M Total

The problem with Carrie is that it is a remake. And they’ve tried to bring Carrie back before (anyone remember Carrie 2?) and it hasn’t worked out well for anyone. The preview makes it seem like critics are loving it, but it only has a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes. It should do OK this weekend, but I don’t think it’s a smash hit.

The Los Angeles premiere of "Machete Kills" was chock full of celebrities on Wednesday night. No matter what she wears, Sofia Vergara always looks good. The "Modern Family" star stepped out in a sheer black beaded floor-length gown.

The actress/ model famously wears a gun-wielding bra in the film.

In the film, the U.S. government recruits Machete (Danny Trejo) for a seemingly impossible task to fight his way through Mexico to stop a dangerous cartel leader and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has a plan for global anarchy.

Machete Kills
Machete is back – on orders from the President of the United States.

In the new trailer for grindhouse flick Machete Kills, Danny Trejo returns as the former Federal agent Machete. After having a stay of execution from none other than the President of the United States, he’s hired to take on an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who wants to spread chaos across the world.

Amusingly, the President is “newcomer” Carlos Estevez – the first time ever Charlie Sheen has been credited in a film with his real name. And that eccentric billionaire? He’s played by Mel Gibson!

The trailer is just a...

Sofia Vergara's Breast Are Lethal Weapons In 'Machete Kills'
Apparently Danny Trejo's isn't the only lethal weapon in Robert Rodriquez's highly anticipated sequel, "Machete Kills."

The latest promo for the film features Lady Desdemona (Sofia Vergara) exercising her Second Amendment rights with a gun-blazing bra!

This isn't the first time Rodriguez has turned a sexy woman into a killing machine -- Rose McGowan sported a machine gun for a leg after zombies chewed off one of hers in the director's Grindhouse film Planet Terror in 2007.

The sequel to 2010's Machete brings us the return of Danny Trejo as the ultimate badass.

Lindsay Lohan's Character Written Out Of 'Machete Kills'

1/30/2013 11:25am EST
Lindsay Lohan's ailing career has been dealt yet another blow as her gun-toting character in Machete has been written out of the film's sequel.

Director Robert Rodriguez gave Lohan a chance to return to the big screen in his violent 2010 film, but the troubled star was cut from the trailer and the end credits after she was convicted of violating the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest.

The filmmaker has now confirmed that Lohan's 'nun with a gun' character April will not feature in his upcoming follow-up, Machete Kills.

He tells, "No, she's not in it. We tho...

With both Lady Gaga and director Robert Rodriguez announcing on Twitter that Gaga would be making her movie debut in the second installment of the Machete series, Machete Kills, the internet has been abuzz with all kinds of excited talk from Gaga fans. However, it remains to be seen just how big her role is going to be, and whether or not this Rodriguez movie is even going to be a Rodriguez movie.

The issue lies with the fact that filming for the movie is clashing somewhat with filming for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, another movie that Rodriguez is slated to direct. Rodriguez has said ...
