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.

With "Killer Elite," "The Grey," "Lockout" and "End Of Watch" among the titles of the nascent distributors Open Road, it's safe to say they specialize in a particular niche. Low to modest budget genre fare with a touch of star or brand power (ie. "Silent Hill"). And now they've picked up a project that has both.

Vanessa Hudgens is running away from her "High School Musical" roots that made her name as fast she can. While she has lent her face to such tween-skewing fare as "Bandslam," "Beastly" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island," she's been just as eager to prove she's all grown up, appearing in "Sucker Punch" and signing on for movies like the gritty indie "Gimme Shelter," the serial killer flick "Frozen Ground" and of course, Harmony Korine's potentially amazeballs "Spring Breakers." And she continues to shake her wholesome Disney image.

With Robert Rodriguez seeming to operate on an ever-increasing wave of meta-filmmaking, in which off-hand pop culture jokes turn suddenly into reality, it's difficult to imagine his projects actually happening until they're released in theatres. Such is the case with “Machete Kills,” his sequel to the 2010 Danny Trejo actioner, but as a few new updates from both cast and behind-the-scenes crew show, it's definitely a reality indeed.

If you thought the zany casting of Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" started and ended with Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson, guess again. Robert Rodriguez hit Twitter today to announce: "I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" And along with it, he added a character poster that reveals she, rather appropriately, plays a character named La Chameleon.

Even if you’re not a fan of Robert Rodriguez’s footloose and fancy-free style of maverick filmmaking, you have to respect the fact that he certainly knows how to round up an impressive cast with each passing project. While he usually peppers films from “Spy Kids” to “Sin City” and beyond with delightful and unexpected casting choices, “Machete Kills” serves to be no exception to the rule.

Although “Machete” wasn’t a runaway success at the box-office ($44m worldwide), critically it was met with cautiously optimistic reviews, it didn't cost all that much, and it seems that was enough for Robert Rodriguez to plough ahead with a sequel. You know, because he can. The end credits promised that Machete would return in “Machete Kills” and “Machete Kills Again” (in space?) and we’re slowly moving closer towards the former of those happening.

If you would have asked us a year ago whether we thought a sequel to Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" would ever happen, we would have taken a bet against it. Response to the 2010 film didn't set the roof on fire, but made quick and inexpensively, the exploitation film's $44 million worldwide gross was evidently enough to warrant a sequel. After all, Rodriguez just makes the picture in-house via his Troublemaker Studios and then strikes a deal with a distributor afterwards, with the writer/director still controlling rights. No fuss, no muss.
