While DC executives can deny it till the cows come home, Deadpool‘s “R” rated success at the box office is breathing new life into some old comic book properties. On the DC side there’s Lobo, The Main Man, the cursing, killing, hard-drinking, intergalactic biker mercenary of the 90’s reinvention by co-creator Keith Giffen. Wonder Woman screenwriter Jason Fuchs has been tasked with throwing out the previous attempts back in 2009 and coming up with something new, and although it hasn’t been said publicly, something “R” rated of course.

Surprise! It’s an all-new episode with your favorite podcast personalities that aren’t actually famous or Chris Hardwick. Since last we left our plump buddies, Jeremy has become a totally hairless karate master and Jason has watched Double Dragon and subsisted on beard leavings. Enough foreplay, here’s what you’re getting yourself into: (more…)
Lifeguards and podcasters by day and private dicks/chat show wannabes at night, this is BastardCast Nights, the talk show edition of The BastardCast with not one but TWO guests! A guy who makes movies and another guy who gives pain.
If you unscrew your head from your neck, Machete Kills comes off as a surprisingly deft and explosively cheesy action film with more comedy than you would expect. On top of that, I think I’ve forfeited my chance to be buried in a Jewish cemetery, because I once again LOVE Mel Gibson. Also, there is a 21% chance that there may have been fucking during my showing.
Go ahead, try to avoid clicking ahead for more now. (more…)
With it’s release date looming (October 11), it’s nice to see the people behind Machete Killsaren’t going to mess around and leave anything to our collective imaginations. Oh sure, some movies rely on things like teasers and trailers and little featurettes to slowly build hype before hitting theatres, but not Robert Rodriguez et al. Nope, so far they have released so many clips from this Grindhouse inspired sequel that I am guessing only about five minutes remains unseen.
Why tease and titillate a film audience when you can let it all hang out like it’s last call at a Tijuana saloon and the donkey has already left…
Up after the jump we get treated to Charlie Sheen with the absolute best presidential campaign ad featuring a machine gun (sorry John McCain), Michelle Rodriguez sports an eye-patch and shows us how when one sense is lost another grows stronger, and finally, a wonderful re-enactment of grandmas old saying ‘don’t get distracted by cleavage and hairspray.’
It’s more fun and dismemberment with Mexico’s most-feared ex-Federale, Machete in Machete Kills, the follow-up to the grindhouse-esque tribute film by Robert Rodriguez, which is in theaters on October 11. To get you warmed up for the film, a new red band trailer has just been posted to the internet, and IGN is bringing it you, via us.
So what wonders does it contain? Well, there’s some prime slices of ham courtesy of Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson for one, at least two kills by chopper blade, as well as some, uh, high-caliber gun work courtesy of Sofia Vergara.
But why take my word for it, roll the trailer below to take a look:
Machete Kills, starring Danny Trejo and veritable ton of the hottest women in Hollywood, is out on October 11th.
Robert Rodriguez‘s Machete Kills has released another clip featuring all the Grindhouse glory that you can stand. It’s got everything: bullets flying left and right, armored cars and funky vans, beautiful women in outrageous leather outfits with particular body parts hanging out (those chaps must chafe like hell), and some weapons that defy description.
Because – someone – demanded it, everyone’s favorite federale turned Terminator is returning to screens this fall with Machete Kills. The new trailer just released for the sequel starring Danny Trejo, directed by Robert Rodriguez and reveals more *ahem* plot details about the movie. As well as giving us a look at some of the cool new action sequences, Mel Gibson‘s villainy and Sofia Vergara‘s lethal, um, double-dees. I think if you’re a fan of the first Machete, or the antics of one Carlos Estevez, you’ll probably find something to recommend in this trailer.
So without further ado, let’s roll the YouTube embed…
Plot Synopsis – In MACHETE KILLS, Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent MACHETE, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.

Stars Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega and director Robert Rodriguez will be in attendance at the premiere with additional talent to be confirmed closer to festival. Here is a snippet of the announcement from the official press release:
“Every year we compile our dream targets for opening night film; MACHETE KILLS was at the top of that list,” said Fantastic Fest Co-founder & Creative Director Tim League. “We are going to pull out all the stops to ensure Robert’s world premiere red carpet experience is literally blood-red.”

MACHETE KILLS is in theaters everywhere October 4th.
Robert Rodriguez‘s latest grindhouse style movie, Machete Kills has a new trailer out. It’s in Spanish, (We’ll post the English version later today when it hits the Internet), but you’ll quickly get the idea even if you don’t speak Spanish. Danny Trejo is back in all his magnificent gory glory as Machete and he’s got another bevy of beautifully dangerous women surrounding him.
Ex-Federale agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.
UPDATE: Here’s the U.S. version:
This looks gloriously campy and fun. Grab a tub of popcorn, an enormously over-sized soda, sit back and enjoy the madness and mayhem. This film isn’t going to win any Oscars and that’s just the way we like it.
Machete Kills hits theater screens on September 13th, and also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Carlos Estevez, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demi’n Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.
