The third in Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo's planned Machete trilogy.
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.
Machete started as a faux trailer for Grindhouse, after the character was first introduced in the Spy Kids series. While the first film was a hit, pulling in a respectable $26 million from a $10.5 million budget, it seemed audiences didn't want another movie when Machete Kills hit theaters. It has slowly, but surely, found an audience on VOD and home video, which is where Machete Kills Again... in Space! may wind up, forgoing a theatrical release.Read More
First attached to prints of Machete Kills in theaters, the trailer for the next potential sequel in this franchise has finally arrived online! Machete Kills Again... in Space! finds Danny Trejo returning along with several of his Machete Kills co-stars including Michelle Rodriguez, Lady Gaga and Alexa Vega. Leonardo DiCaprio makes his entrance as the evil Man in the Silver Mask (*actor subject to change), and we're introduced to a malfunctioning robotic Justin Bieber. Will this be the next installment in Robert Rodriguez's action-packed Grindhouse spin-off series? Since Machete Kills has only taken in $14 million worldwide so far, it's tough to say if another sequel will ever happen, but feast your eyes on this action-packed tease, which finds Machete trading in his trademark weapon for a costume lightsaber.
Machete Kills Again... in Space! comes to theaters in 2017.Read More
The end credits of Machete promise that Danny Trejo's popular character will return in a sequel titled Machete Kills. Though, we've never been told when we can expect to see this hard-hitting follow up. Bloody Disgusting learned that a script is actually completed for the movie, and it might be coming sooner than we think.
Machete is a planned trilogy, with Machete Kills followed by Machete Kills Again. There are no story details at this time.Read More
