Robert Rodriguez’s "Machete Kills" will both open, and make its world premier at, the 2013 Fantastic Fest.
The sequel to Rodriguez’s controversial 2010 movie, starring Danny Trejo, Charlie Sheen, Michelle Rodriguez and Sophia Vergara, will make its world premiere Sept. 19, as the opening night film for the 2013 festival. There will be a red carpet and everything.
Fantastic Fest takes place largely, if not completely, at the new, 10-screen Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline location from Sept. 19 to 26.
Danny Trejo is once again the mysterious ex-Federale agent known as Machete, who, this time around, is recruited by the President of the United States for a seemingly impossible mission. It opens in theaters Oct. 4.
