From Dusk Till Dawn
With his hands already full with the recently released "Machete Kills" and the forthcoming "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," Robert Rodriguez still found time in 2013 to work on another project, the TV series version of his 1996 genre mashup, "From Dusk Till Dawn." And less than a year after it was first announced, we already have the first teaser trailer giving us a peek at what he's put together. And no surprise here, it's pure pulp.

With TV the new home for ambitious entertainment that can also be financially lucrative and critically acclaimed, it's hardly a surprise that the Weinstein boys are making a play into that arena. In fact, the seeds were planted a few years ago when Harvey struck a deal with the new owners of Miramax to develop TV projects out of their old movies, and it's now starting to bear fruit. This past summer, a "Scream" TV series got the the thumbs up and now a couple more shows that originated as movies on the Dimension label are getting the episodic treatment.

It was already a bit improbable that "Machete Kills" was made at all, and considering that the sequel made about a third of what the original "Machete" did (a measly $14 million worldwide) it's probably a safe bet that the tossed around trilogy capper "Machete Kills Again...In Space!" probably won't happen. But that's what we figured the first time around, so who knows. In any event, if it never comes to pass, this trailer will live on forever.

Machete Kills
Robert Rodriguez isn't one for false pleasantries: if you didn't like "Machete," you really won't think much of "Machete Kills," and he's okay with that. This sequel to the 2010 actioner seems to exist mostly for his hardcore base and as a favor for good friend Danny Trejo, who plays the pockmarked, laconic hero of the title. Not even original distributor Fox wanted any part of the continued adventures of the Ex-Federale who never met a fireball he couldn't fly through with the grace of an eagle and the fierceness of a tiger, as this adventure comes courtesy of the good folks at Open Road. But this is no course correction: anyone who has ever seen a Rodriguez film, or has seen his career evolve (devolve?) into the bare essentials of camp exploitation, knows what to expect.

Movies That Paved The Way For 'Machete Kills'
Some movies make references to other films, and some movies are nothing but references to other films. "Machete Kills" is one of these movies. Robert Rodriguez's endlessly winking sequel to his 2010 action epic "Machete" (itself an elongated version of a fake trailer he made for his collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, "Grindhouse"), "Machete Kills" piles on the references, allusions, and shout-outs until you can't hardly untangle what is a somewhat original Rodriguez contribution and what is from something the director caught one night on pay cable while trying to get to his recorded episode of "Duck Dynasty." Not that it matters much. "Machete Kills" works best when it becomes a kind of kicky blur.

There's escapist fun, and then there's "Machete Kills," a movie that fully embraces its brainlessness and bad taste, rounding up a bunch of big name stars to chew scenery, blow things up, and show lots of cleavage. And in that spirit, here's a few more peeks at the latest from Robert Rodriguez.

Machete Kills
If you think things shooting from boobs and women getting punched in the vagina is totally irreverent and edgy, and having Charlie Sheen actually say the words "Machete Kills" is some sort of knowing genius, then you're probably a better audience for this movie than we are.

Machete Kills
Director Robert Rodriguez is one of those guys who is perfectly capable of making a movie in good taste, but he refuses to do so with every fiber of his being (even his movies for little kids play like some psychedelic voyage into the fourth dimension). Case in point: the new poster for "Machete Kills," the follow-up to his 2010 feature "Machete," which was based on a fake trailer Rodriguez created for his double-feature with Quentin Tarantino, "Grindhouse" (an experience Tarantino barely seems to acknowledge). This poster has everything: a triple-bladed sword, Michelle Rodriguez rocking an eye-patch, grade-A slimeballs Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson looking downright stoic, Lady Gaga in an old timey bathing suit, and lots and lots of fire. When Danny Trejo is the least outrageous thing on the poster, you can understand the level of insanity on display. Somewhere, Photoshop has quietly hung itself. Read on to see the poster in all of its glory, plus the first look at Mel Gibson's villainous bad guy and even more outrageous photos.
