Machete Kills Again…In Space


Machete Kills didn’t exactly triumph at the box office. The film opened at #4 and was quickly beaten into submission by Gravity and roughly a dozen other films, eventually admitting defeat after recouping less than three quarters of its budget. A month after its release and the film has all but vanished from theaters. Conventional logic states that this is the end for dear old Machete (although for all we know, there may be endless direct-to-DVD sequels in his future). So as we marvel at how quickly the fake-Mexploitation-grindhouse craze has fizzled and died, take a look at what may be the single most enjoyable aspect of Machete Kills: the fake threequel trailer that ran before it.



Comic-Con regular Robert Rodriguez had an intimate Hall H presentation Thursday evening to talk about his newest venture, Quick Draw Productions. If you’re familiar with Hall H, you’re probably questioning my use of the word “intimate” as it’s a big venue, generally stuffed to the bathrooms with people and big events. Not so, this night, as Robert Rodriguez appeared on stage himself to start slowly unveiling three partnerships, but nothing was that ground shattering. If the ground had shattered, few people would have fallen in, as the voluminous Hall was only about a quarter full for the casual, talky presentation. Before launching into the what and the when of his new production company, Rodriguez ran down the list of things he’s always asked about – namely Machete, Sin City, and Spy Kids 4. To find out what he said about this, and his future in animation, keep readin’ on.
