Robert Rodriguez is back, y’all. After goofing off for a couple of years doing Planet Terror and Sin City. Rodriguez is finally returning to what made him a box-office success. Sure, From Dusk til Dawn and Desperado were cool, but those aren’t the films that made Rodriguez the A-list director he is today. No sir. Kids’ films are what pays the bills. With just three movies — a single trilogy — Rodriguez made more money than all of his other films combined.

Of course, we’re talking about Spy Kids. And Rodriguez knows where his bread is buttered, which is why he’s returning to the genre that has served him so well.

Here’s the trailer for Shorts. It’s a kids’ movie. I should also mention it looks like a big bowl of ass on a crooked stick. Congrats, Robert: You’ve made another movie that 11-year-olds on a Twizzler bender may not mind sitting through. Way to set the bar, dude.
