Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Machete’ gets a red band trailer
By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Sorry for all the trailer stuff, it IS Comic Con this weekend after all. Anyway, I still don’t get why Fox and/or Rodriguez is insisting on hiding Lindsey Lohan’s appearance in this thing.
It’s not like her tabloid troubles of late are going to besmirch the reputation of this Oscar bait costume drama. We’re talking about an exploitation action picture that’s being sold as a throwback to the 1970s grindhouse era. I still think Robert De Niro is all wrong for this kind of comedy, and he’s too big of a star to genuinely find himself in such a piece of schlock. It’s a shame that Don Johnson doesn’t get his ‘introducing’ credit this time around.
