Lego fan films are a fun hobby and have given us some humorous takes on serious films. This new one, however, stands above the rest as a beautiful recreation of the fake 'Machete' trailer shown at the 'Grindhouse'.
Mike writes, "Instead of trying to capitalize on a movie’s release, the best thing to do is go let the video game’s development cycle happen naturally. If it’s good, it will find an audience regardless of the age of its associated film. Hell, Goldeneye came out a good two years after the movie and it’s still regarded as one of the most important games of all time. More recently, Batman: Arkham Asylum redefined the superhero game by existing alongside the Nolan films without depending on them. Indeed, there are good licenses out there, and here are a few that are still untapped."
Holding court in Hall H this evening, director Robert Rodriguez unveiled and rattled off project after project during his panel at Comic-Con 2011.
He’s already talked about sequels to “Machete” starring Danny Trejo and while it seemed far-fetched at the time, the prolific filmmaker was not joking and says both films have been greenlit (by Fox or his own Troublemaker Studios remains unclear). “You guys were great about supporting ‘Machete’,” he said. “The second one we’re going right into [now] – ‘Machete Kills.’ He also called, the follow-up film, “Machete Kills Again” a “space opera, a machete-shaped lightsaber. Machete kills in space.” Umm, ok, that sounds crazy.
During a livechat last year, Rodriguez revealed that after “Spy Kids 4,” his next directorial project would be “Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.”
Machete (Danny Trejo – Heat) is an ex-federale who is out for justice when Torrez (Steven Seagal – Under Siege), the crime kingpin responsible for slaying his family, resurfaces. Machete finds himself embroiled in a bitter war between the US government and illegal immigrants crossing the border as he looks to track down Torrez and exact his brutal vengeance, one blade at a time.
