Machete Kills, 2013.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez.
Starring Danny Trejo, Alexa Vega, Mel Gibson, Carlos Estevez, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Lady Gaga, Michelle Rodriguez, Cuba Gooding Jr., Demián Bichir, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos, William Sadler, Antonio Banderas, Tom Savini, and Walton Goggins.
Machete is recruited by the U.S. President to take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.
While the original Machete trailer was one of the highlights of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's 2007 double feature Grindhouse, containing more entertainment value in its two minutes than the entirety of Death Proof, the 2010 feature version failed to live up to the promise of the faux trailer.

Warning: contains a major spoiler for Skins series four.
Luke Pasqualino arrived on our screens in 2009 as Freddie McClair, beautiful stoner teen and doomed paramour of Kaya Scodelario's Effy Stonem in E4's Skins. Since then, he's dipped into his Italian heritage in The Borgias, played a young Bill Adama in now-defunct Battlestar Galactica prequel Blood and Chrome, and can currently be seen on BBC One on Sunday nights as impetuous young swordsman D'Artagnan in adventure series, The Musketeers.
We chatted to Pasqualino about his role in the new BBC series, his forthcoming part in the much-anticipated Snowpiercer from director Joon Ho Bong, and how one sets about measuring up to Edward James Olmos. What's more, we made it through the entire interview »
Please note, the absence of titles like Spring Breakers, Paradise: Faith, Frances Ha, No, and The Place Beyond the Pines is due to the fact that I saw these in 2012 and considered them as some of the best ‘unreleased’ films of that year. The following ten selections are the best films I saw this year that also made it to theatrical release also this year. Without further ado, here are my Top Ten Films for 2013 commencing with my number 10 pick…:
The only directorial debut on my list, Ryan Coogler, took home the top audience and critic’s prize at Sundance, for his emotional, well played reenactment of the last days in the life of a young man whose life is cut short. Featuring stellar performances from Michael B. Jordan, Octavia Spencer, and Melonie Diaz, Coogler’s debut is an engaging and important cinematic achievement, »
