Earlier this week, it was announced that Robert Rodriguez’ sequel to Sin City got a new release date attached to it, and I think I jinxed Machete Kills when I mentioned it in the report. I wish I could retract the mention because, for unknown reasons, Open Road Films has now pushed back the release date for Machete Kills. I guess that makes me a believer in karma.
The film was originally scheduled for September. As of today, the new date is officially set for Friday, October 4, 2013. At least the change is only a few week’s difference rather than nearly a complete year like Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Machete Kills stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror, and Mel Gibson.
