Machete has a message for Arizona

Posted by LiveFor on May 5, 2010

Nothing like a minigun on a motorbike to get your point across.

Robert Rodriguez directs a great cast headlined by the mighty Danny Trejo. Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Cheech Marin, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Don Johnson, Jeff Fahey, and Steven Segal also star.

Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his “holy” brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.


Due out on the 5th September 2010.

UPDATED: Megan Fox as Red Sonja? Metal bikini ahoy!

Posted by LiveFor on April 5, 2010

It looks as if the Robert Rodriguez Red Sonja movie starring Rose McGowan is no more. He had been saying that they were going to wait and see how the new Conan movie was going to do. That may not be totally true.

According to Pajiba, the current incarnation of the Sonja has been scrapped.

Red Sonja was a comic book character created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith. She was part of the Conan the Barbarian universe and was a kick ass warrior who wore some skimpy chainmail armour. Brigitte Neilsin played her in a film version many moons ago.

However, the project is not dead as Millenium Films are after someone to rewrite the script by David N White and rumour has it that an offer has been made to a Megan Fox.

Before I go any further here is a pic of Red Sonja, so it is possible Fox would be wearing something similar.

You still with me?

Now we all know Fox hasn’t really done anything to show her acting chops so we don’t actually know what she is capable of. She can run, pout and pose in Transformers and Jennifer’s Body just failed and slunk away before anyone noticed. She is starring in the comic adaption of Jonah Hex, but no word on her performance yet.

Could this be the role that makes her? Is the rumour even true?

Do you think Fox is the right choice for Red Sonja? Will she suit the flaming red hair (anyone want to do a photoshop thingy that I can post)? Who would be a better choice for the role and who should direct it?

UPDATE: Thanks to Pat for knocking this one together using one of the Rose McGowan teaser posters from a while back (check out both of them here). Anybody got any more?

Predators – First sneak peak and a poster

Posted by LiveFor on March 13, 2010


A bold new chapter in the Predator universe, Predators was shot on location under Rodriguez’s creative auspices at the filmmaker’s Austin-based Troublemaker Studios, and is directed by Nimród Antal. The film stars Adrien Brody as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. In addition to Adrien Brody, the film stars Topher Grace, Alice Braga, and Laurence Fishburne. Co-starring are Walton Goggins, Danny Trejo, Oleg Taktarov and Mahershalalhashbaz Ali.

Check out the Predator Dog below via io9 and the poster from STYD.

The footage debuted at SXSW.

What do you reckon? Is this the film to bring the Predator back to the forefront of kick-ass monster action?
