    Robert Rodriguez just took to the Hall H stage to reveal that Machete is set to return to theaters with two sequels (as have been teased since the very first Grindhouse faux-trailer).

    "Both 'Machete' sequels have been greenlit," says Rodriguez, though added that the first one is currently the only one guaranteed to have a full-length film involved. The third will exist (for the time being) only in trailer form.

    To be titled Machete Kills, the sequel will include fake footage for the third film, now titled Machete Kills Again... In Space!. Rodriguez promises that it will include space babes and a lightsaber style weapon.

    No further details are currently available, but Danny Trejo is certain to return to the title role.

    The third film with Machete in space sounds great! :lol:

    Machete in space will be second only to Jason X.

    I was very disappointed in, but did note hate, the first; so I'm not terribly excited but more than willing to give it another try nonetheless.

    I enjoyed the first film so I'll definitely check out the second. As for the third one taking place in space, that just sounds lame.

    I feel the same way, and I desperately wanted to love it. I have even put the Blu back on the shelf at 2 closing blockbusters because I felt $8.99 was too much for me to pay for it.

    I was hoping for more from Machete as well but liked it enough to buy the blu ray. I'll certainly see the next films as well.

    just watched Marked for Death for the first time last weekend, and at the beginning Danny Trejo has a small part as a mexican thug being chased by Seagal. Interesting how things come full circle, with Seagal having a cameo in Trejo's film.

    anyway, i'm very happy to see more Machete.

    Yeah the first one wasn't great, but I'll give these sequels a chance. I personally think out of all the homage to exploitation films, Hobo with a Shotgun was the best, where's my sequel to that film!

    The first one was fun, and Jason X is my favorite of the F13 films, so I'm actually looking forward to Machete in Space :lol:

    That is interesting.

    Marked for Death is hands down one of best drug cop films of the early 90s era and Seagal's best film, probabley best non under siege success for him.

    Interesting how films that aren't all that good get sequels.

    I had a lot of fun with Machete, definitely my favorite of the Grindhouse films. Don't know how much longer they can stretch out the joke though. And going to space? Sounds terrrrrible.

    yep :)

    That, the original Elm Street, Bride of Chucky, and occasionally the original Halloween are my favorites of those respective series. It was never my favorite subgenre, and while I do enjoy many of the other movies, they don't rank up there for me.

    Leprechaun in Space was also damn amusing in a I-can't-believe-the-filmmakers-did-this-to-try-to-make-money kind of way :)

    i've been catching up on 80s and 90s action films that i missed earlier in my life. films id see in video stores but had no interest in at the time. chuck norris, steven seagal. made it through seagal's first 4. obviously he peaked with his 5th, under siege, but i enjoyed hard to kill and marked for death. above the law was kind of boring, and out for justice was so ridiculous it was funny. with norris, on the other hand, its much harder to trace a career trajectory. he made c-grade martial arts and war films in the 70's and 80's, then family friendly b-grade tripe in the 90's before hitting walker texas ranger. that was obviously his commercial peak, but in terms of film, i'd say code of silence has been the best so far.

    My favourite Seagal movie has always been Hard to Kill. I love the whole revenge story and the training scenes. And the hot woman doesn't hurt either. "And you can take that to the bank, (Bad ass music comes in) the blood bank!"
