In a mock trailer for Machete Kills Again... in Space, the title character looks as he always has — except this time, Machete dons a spacesuit and wields a lightsaber.

Finally, a space movie Neil deGrasse Tyson can get behind.
Here's the trailer that ran in front of Machete Kills when it premiered last month. Now, director Robert Rodriguez has already signed on to direct a third Machete movie, but whether it would actually be "In Space!" or something slightly more reasonable remains to be seen. I sincerely hope it's this, though. Read more...
There’s no polite way to put this, sometimes filmmakers crawl up their own butt and don’t leave. Many of the indie auteurs who were thought to grow and develop into something more eventually reveal a shallow bag of tricks and keep going to the same well for diminishing returns. Example: Robert Rodriguez. Machete Kills bombed, [...]
