Does anyone remember the two Grindhouse films?

Back in 2007, a series of two films, Planet Terror directed by Robert Rodriguez and Death Proof by Quentin Tarantino, came into theaters. Overall, the films did well at replicating the old style of B-horror films, but something else was unique. Before each of the movies were fake trailers created by other directors.

Fans became so in love with some of the concepts, that one of the fake trailers has actually become a real movie: Machete starring Danny Trejo as Machete. The movie also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Steven Sagal and Lindsy Lohan.

The first trailer after the jump is the original fake trailer attached to the Grindhouse movies, while the second trailer is for the actual movie coming out on September 3, 2010. Can you spot the similarities?
