Teaser Trailer: Machete Kills

Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Jessica Alba are back for Machete Kills, the anticipated sequel to 2010’s Machete directed by Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City, Planet Terror).

New crazed/cartoonish faces include Mel Gibson, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding Jr.,  Sofia Vergara and Charlie Sheen (billed as “Carlos Estevez”). Plot details, from G4:

“Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.”

The movie, due 2013, reportedly co-stars Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, and Vanessa Hudgens. Lindsay Lohan, who had a topless supporting role in the original, is not returning.
