Machete doesn't do promotion we guess. Either that or Amber Heard is better eye candy. Probably the latter, since the first offiical image from "Machete Kills" has arrived and it looks positively domestic.
The sequel will find Danny Trejo reprising his lead role as he faces off against a crazed Mel Gibson (as a madman billionaire, not himself) who wants to start a global war. Along the way he'll cross paths a number of beauties including Heard, who plays Miss San Antonio, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Hudgens, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba, Alexa Vega, Lady Gaga and more, with dudes like Demian Bichir, Charlie Sheen, Antonio Banderas and Cuba Gooding Jr. also popping up.
Open Road has snapped up the U.S. distribution rights for a release next year, with the exact date pending. So it looks like this is nearing the finish line and the ever busy Robert Rodriguez will head to "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" next. [EW]
