After a violent shakedown from a notorious drug lord nearly kills him, Machete, a renegade Mexican Federale and tough-as-nails vigilante for justice, roams the streets of Texas, working as a day laborer. When Machete is hired by a crooked US Senator to execute a covert hit, Machete is double-crossed and forced to run from the cops and an endless stream of assassins. But what they don't know is that Machete is looking for them so he can settle the score.

I’m pretty sure a couple of wishing wells and a fleet of warlocks will need to get involved in order for Machete Kills Again…In Space to ever see the light of day, but at least we have the above trailer for an explosive glimpse at what might have been had the sequel not tanked at the box office. The trailer was aired during the movie, so you may not have seen it yet.

At some point or another, you’ve been mean mugged before. Whether by some bitch who is intimidated by your hotness, by some asshole who wants to step outside and throw down because he saw you making a different kind of eye at his girlfriend or maybe by your wife because you took a nap instead of going to the grocery store, you’ve been victimized by someone who has attempted to punch you in the face with their eyes.

Gravity’s Friday Box Office Should Propel It To Another Record Weekend Gravity’s Friday Box Office Should Propel It To Another Record Weekend
Last weekend, Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity exploded out of the gate en route to a $55 million weekend for the record books. By Sunday evening, the film had carded the largest opening in Sandra Bullock’s career, the largest opening in George Clooney’s career and more importantly, the largest opening in the history of October. It now seems poised to break even more records this weekend.

One of the most surprising news items of this week was that Robert Rodriguez had secured financing for Machete Kills, his sequel to the summer 2010 grindhouse feature Machete. According to the report, Rodriguez has teamed up with producer Alexander Rodnyansky and production is currently scheduled to begin in April. But if things aren't moving fast enough for you already, wait until you have a gander at this.

Machete Sequel Gets Financing, Will Start Production In April Machete Sequel Gets Financing, Will Start Production In April
At the end of Machete, the Grindhouse follow-up from director Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker made a pretty lofty promise. The credits sequence told audiences that they could expect two sequels to the film called Machete Kills and Machete Kills Again. The reason I call it a lofty promise is because Grindhouse was fairly notorious for underperforming at the box office, as people didn't seem super excited to bring back the format.
