Machete-Kills-PosterTrained to kill. Left for Dead. Back for more. Thus goes the tagline on the new poster for Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills, his action sequel to the movie that began life as a fake trailer. The franchise has quickly gained something of a cult status, and Danny Trejo is reprising his eponymous role in just a few weeks time. The latest trailer surfaced just over a month ago, teasing plenty more action sequences to entertain the original’s fans. And now Fandango have launched the latest poster, which sees Trejo alongside both the good guys and the bad.

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.

Starring alongside Trejo is another impressive ensemble of new and familiar faces alike, led by Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Alexa Vega, Lady Gaga, Sofía Vergara, Charlie Sheen / Carlos Estevez, Demián Bichir, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror, and Mel Gibson. Rodriguez is directing from a script penned by Kyle Ward, based on a story from the director and his brother, Marcel Rodriguez. Machete Kills will be released in the UK and US on October 11th, giving us just over a month before the film hits cinemas. For now, here’s the new poster, which you can click through to enlarge.
