Box-Office Poison x 5 = Box Office Hit?
On the very rare occasion that you actually based a full-length movie on a trailer, I'd imagine it'd be a good idea to make a trailer for the actual movie as good as the trailer it was based on. This is the trailer for Danny Trejo's Machete, written and co-directed by Robert Rodriguez, alongside his editor Ethan Maniquis.
What's kind of funny about the trailer for Machete is that, save for Danny Trejo, you wouldn't watch a movie starring any of the other actors in this. They're box-office poison by themselves, but there is something appealing about an ensemble supporting cast that includes so much box office poison: Michelle Rodriguez (and after this trailer, I finally see what it is about her), Jessica Alba, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, Robert DeNiro, Cheech Marin, and Lindsey Lohan.
I kind of love how many cast members have spent time, or soon will spend time in prison, too. That's the thing about B-movies, though. You can get away with it. And I guess we know Mel Gibson's next career move, now.
