Watch: New Trailer For 'Machete Kills' Shows Off Mel Gibson & Lady Gaga

Only one movie this year will feature boob guns, and an iPhone with a knife in it and yes, that movie is “Machete Kills.” The sequel to Robert Rodriguez‘s bawdy, grindhouse goof “Machete” hits theaters this fall, and while it won’t win Oscars, that’s cool because Machete don’t do awards season.

The plot, such as it is, finds Machete recruited by the President (played by Carlos Estevez, with jokes about his womanizing still apparently hilarious) to stop an evil madman (Mel Gibson, still trying to make a comeback) from launching a missile. And along the way he runs into a bevy of beauties—Lady Gaga (really), Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez (fish tacos) and Sofia Vergara (deadly breasts)—along the way. Pretty much this looks like exactly what you might have been expecting, for better or worse.

“Machete Kills” arrives on October 11th. Watch below.

A part of me is somewhat excited for this, another part of me is wondering when Robert Rodriguez became this kind of director. "Planet Terror" was to be a one-off type thing, but now he actually seems content in simply making well-produced, nicely budgeted Grindhouse films. Hopefully Sin City 2 will be a step in the right direction.

There was literally no point at all to seeing the first one if you'd seen the trailer.


This one looks fantastic !!! Machete's lines are kick-ass …
