Machete

(2010)

"Machete" is based on the "fake" trailer in Robert Rodriguez's 2007 "Grindhouse," featuring Danny Trejo and Jeff Fahey reprising their original roles.

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 (Steven Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Cheech Marin) his "holy" brother, and April (Lindsay Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Jessica Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.

Machete Visits ‘The Brady Bunch’ in Super Bowl Commercial

We've already broken down all of the movies that will be premiering new trailers during Super Bowl XLIX this weekend, but, of course, movie trailers only represent a fraction of the new ads that will arrive during the big game. With a number of commercials debuting early online, Snickers has released their Super Bowl commercial, which presents the most bizarre mash-ups in history: Machete and The Brady Bunch.

Over the past few years, Snickers has released numerous ads that showcase how "different" people are when they're hungry. Using the same general premise, Snickers' latest ad brings Machete himself, Danny Trejo, into The Brady Bunch household as Marsha, complaining about how Peter hit "her" in the nose with a football. Before Machete goes on a violent revenge rampage, Mike Brady (Robert Reed) and Carol Brady (Florence Henderson) gives "Marsha" a Snickers, which naturally brings her back to her normal self.

‘Machete’ Cuts Up Blu-ray and DVD Sales Charts

The Paramount comedy Dinner for Schmucks had a solid debut as well, taking second place in DVD sales and first place in DVD rentals. Unlike many studios, Paramount does not impose a 28-day waiting period for new releases on Netflix and Redbox, which paved the way for Dinner for Schmucks' win on the rental charts.

The SUNDAY FUNNIES: Insane ‘Twilight’ Back Tattoo and Hailee Steinfeld's KMart Ad

It seems like they try to make the show a lot sexier than it really is too, with the butt close-up at the beginning and more sultry looks of Tina Fey. If that's what they were really trying to do, then why didn't they include more of the luscious Jane Krakowski? Crazy.

I wonder if she'll get little shots of Edward and Bella on her face as well. That would even make Mike Tyson's face tattoo seem normal...
