Machete Killed at the Box Office

14 October 2013 11:35 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It just figures. Up front... most of us here at Dread Central were not fans of the original Machete. Yet, its sequel, Machete Kills, made huge strides in getting things right, and of course nobody went to see it. In fact, it had an historically bad opening.

According to Box Office Mojo, Machete Kills opened to $3.8M, which is the 8th worst opening in history for a movie in over 2,500 theaters. It joins flicks like Firehouse Dog and Rainn Wilson's The Rocker on the list of shame. Aye carumba! Machete don't draw. This poor showing without question puts the future of the franchise in trouble unless it heads direct to video with little to no star power.

Exclusive: Alexa Vega Talks Machete Kills and More!

11 October 2013 9:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Rarely has a woman looked so unbelievably hot in a movie than Alexa Vega does in Machete Kills. The outfits she wears throughout the film are practically non-existent, and something comparable to them isn’t found easily...

But if you’re a fan of Robert Rodriguez, you probably won’t have to look much further than the girls of Sin City. Vega initially wanted to don fishnets and a revolver in that film, but instead she appears as the fiery hooker KillJoy in Machete Kills. Don’t worry, though; you might just be seeing her in A Dame To Kill For if she gets her way - and she probably will.

DC: I know this has been kind of taxing with all the press, but at least you’re at the end of the roller coaster since the movie’s about to come out.

Av: It’s so awesome though; I’m really excited. »

Exclusive: Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo Talk Machete Kills

10 October 2013 12:58 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

From Desperado to the Spy Kids franchise and beyond, Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo have largely become household names due mostly to the work they’ve done together.

With the sequel to Machete about to hit theaters, Machete Kills expands on their body of work and might remind audiences just why they fell in love with the indie spirit of Rodriguez and the stoic badassery of Trejo in the first place. Shortly before the premiere of Machete Kills at this year’s Fantastic Fest down in Austin, TX, Rodriguez and Trejo sat down with Dread Central for a few minutes before they were rushed out to meet the fans on the red carpet.

Interview: Robert Rodriguez, Alexa Vega Know ‘Machete Kills’

8 October 2013 6:02 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Director Robert Rodriguez continues his “grindhouse” cinematic ways with his latest film, “Machete Kills.” This sequel to 2010’s “Machete,” the film is a gleeful celebration of 1970s exploitation films, villains played by familiar celebrities and the indestructible hero named Machete, portrayed by Danny Trejo.

Director Robert Rodriguez is a venerable do-it-yourself filmmaker. He broke through twenty years ago with his 16mm film classic, “El Mariachi,” and has followed that debut with a series of stylish comic book films like “Desperado” (1995), “From Dusk Till Dawn” (1996) “Sin City” (2005) and the four “Spy Kids” movies. The character of Machete first appeared as a fake 1970s-style trailer in “Grindhouse” (2007), which also featured Rodriguez’s film “Planet Terror.” Another Sin City movie is scheduled for 2014, subtitled “A Dame to Kill For.”

Looks Can Kill in New Machete Kills Featurette

Machete Kills review: justice is bloody (hilarious)

6 October 2013 2:49 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Forget about the socially conscious core that fueled the exploitation engine of the first film. This one is flat-out, no-message action comedy, outrageous and hilarious. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It started with a trailer: a fake movie ad “left over” from the 1970s for a Mexploitation flick dropped into Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse… which Robert Rodriguez later expanded into the very funny and pointedly satirical full-length Machete. Now, the sequel, Machete Kills, opens with a new fake 1970s relic trailer, for, heh, Machete Kills Again in Space. It hints at a completely ridiculous expansion of the Machete legend into Star Wars-era space opera, and it’s as many degrees of insanity beyond where Machete Kills will take you as Kills is beyond the first flick.
