Pop culture comes to life in St. Louis next month! It’s the Wizard World Comic Con May 22nd through the 24th at America’s Center downtown (701 Convention Plaza – St. Louis, Mo 63101), and boy oh boy, do they have an amazing line-up of guests!
Sure, you got the comic artists and cosplayers, wrestlers, a St. Louis Ram, a Power Ranger, and of course the ubiquitous Walking Dead stars, but what We Are Movie Geeks is most excited about are the celebrities from movies that will be on hand: Horror legend George Romero, Sharknado legend Tara Reid, horror hostess with the mostest (if you know what I mean) Elvira, Guardians Of The Galaxy tough guy Dave Bautista, Henry the serial killer himself Michael Rooker, Do The Right Thing’s ‘Buggin Out’ Giancarlo Esposito. Lord of the Rings Trilogy’s Pippin Billy Boyd, Captain America squeeze Hayley Atwell, and Silent Bob’s buddy Jay aka Jason Mewes. »

It looks like Machete is going to be the joke that just won't die. The first feature film debuted in 2010 after a faux trailer that came with Robert Rodriguez's half of the Grindhouse double feature sparked some interest among exploitation fans. And then the end of that first parody, there was a tease for a sequel, which inexplicably ended up in front of cameras and on the big screen in 2013 in the form of Machete Kills. It bombed at the box office hard, and while Mel Gibson was a fun addition to the cast, it started to feel like the joke had run its course. But hold on, because the teaser at the end of Machete Kills may become a movie too. If you've taken the time to check out Machete Kills, then you know at the end there was a tease for the next installment, Machete Kills Again. »

Evidently undeterred after Machete Kills got utterly slaughtered at the box office in the fall of 2013, taking in a measly $15 million at the box office and never recouping its slight $20 million budget, actor Danny Trejo confirmed recently that he and director Robert Rodriguez are still proceeding with their previously planned third installment, titled Machete Kills Again… In Space.
Speaking with Halloween Daily News at the Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina, last weekend, Trejo seemed gung-ho about the prospect of again playing the Mexican ex-federale in a third film, reporting that plans have been set in motion to make the exploitation flick later this year:
“Robert [Rodriguez] and I are going to start to do ‘Machete Kills in Space,’ so that’s going to be awesome. Absolutely. We’re going to be working on it this year.”
Machete is one of the more unlikely big screen protagonists in recent cinematic history. »

After putting together a fake "Machete" trailer for "Grindhouse," director Robert Rodriguez decided to turn "Machete" into a feature film. It was released in 2010 with plans of completing an entire trilogy. But the movie grossed only $44 million worldwide. Surprisingly, a sequel, called "Machete Kills," was greenlit. It was released in 2013 and ended up with a disappointing $15 million. But despite terrible results, "Machete" star Danny Trejo just revealed that there are already plans for the third film to go into production. "Robert and I are going to start to do 'Machete Kills in Space,' so that's going to be awesome," he confirmed. "We're going to be working on it this year." »
Machete and Machete Kills followed up on the joke trailer Robert Rodriguez created for the Grindhouse double-bill he and Quentin Tarantino put together in 2007. But there have been talks — or jokes, at least — about a third movie. Rodriguez even opened the second movie with another fake trailer, for Machete Kills Again… In […]

Just when you thought the legacy of Grindhouse was a memory comes the news that Machete will kill...again! After two insane outings courtesy of Robert Rodriguez and Troublemaker Studios, the Danny Trejo exploitation franchise will get a third entry as teased at the conclusion of Machete Kills. If you recall, the trailer took the Mexican vigilante off the planet and into space and that looks to be what the feature film will show. When asked by Halloween Daily News at the Mad Monster Days in »

If you saw Machete Kills in theaters, then you probably also saw that hilariously ridiculous trailer for something called Machete Kills Again…in Space. At the time, we thought that was all we were going to get of the supposed third installment of the Danny Trejo-led franchise, but the man himself has confirmed that this is in fact in the works. Yes, we will be seeing Machete going berserk…in space! Trejo told Halloween Daily News that he and Robert Rodriguez, his Machete director, will be filming Machete Kills in Space. (Apparently they thought the "Again…" part was unnecessary.) We won’t even have to wait too long for it, as he also said that they will be “working on it this year.” If Trejo can’t land a part in Star Wars: Episode 7, 8 and/or 9, he’ll »
It looks like Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo are set to round out their Machete trilogy, with Trejo revealing at the Mad Monster convention in Charlotte, Nc that he’s set to reprise the role of the ex-Federale for Machete Kills Again… In Space!.
Starting life as a faux trailer in Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse in 2007, the first Machete was released in 2010, and was followed by a sequel Machete Kills in 2013, which just so happened to end with a teaser for …in Space!; check it out here…
Are you excited for Machete Kills Again… In Space!? Let us know your thoughts…

Always planned as a trilogy, the Machete sequel Machete Kills bombed at the box office earning just $8 million in wide release, leaving the franchise's fate in question. But according to Danny Trejo there's no doubt that Machete Kills Again... in Space! will eventually happen. In fact, he claims it is set to shoot later this year.
Danny Trejo was hanging out at the Mad Monster convention in Charlotte, Nc this past weekend, where Halloween Daily News caught up with the cult icon and El Sereno legend. According to Danny Trejo, who can next be seen in the sequel Bad Asses on the Bayou, he has already started working on this second sequel to the 2010 hit with Robert Rodriguez. He says:
"Robert and I are going to start to do Machete Kills In Space, so that's going to be awesome. Absolutely. We're going to be working on it this year."

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.
“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.
“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

The long and fruitful friendship between Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez probably began with 1994’s “Four Rooms” (remember that one?). That film, an anthology comedy set in a Los Angeles hotel on New Year’s eve, could be described in a word as “unfortunate,” but it cemented what would become a strong working alliance between two very talented and different artists (for the record, Tarantino’s segment, “The Man from Hollywood” can at least be said to be an interesting failure while Rodriguez’s “The Misbehavers” just isn’t very good). The two young maverick movie geeks linked up next on Rodriguez’s hellacious vampire western “From Dusk ‘Till Dawn,” with Tarantino writing the script and playing the creepy second banana to then rising star leading man George Clooney (the reviews at the time weren’t kind to him, nor the movie itself). The friendship reached a fever pitch with »
