Fantastic Fest Announces Opening Night Film: 'Machete Kills'


Fantastic Fest has chosen their opening night film: Machete Kills. This will be the world premiere of the Robert Rodriguez film, a follow-up to 2010's Machete. Rodriguez, along with stars Danny Trejo and Alexa Vega are expected to walk the blood-red carpet, with more talent to be announced soon.

In Machete Kills, Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man - he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.

Fantastic Fest runs in Austin, Texas from September 19th (which is when Machete Kills will premiere) through September 26th. Machete Kills opens theatrically October 4th. For more details, visit
