“Machete” will have midnight world premiere at Venice Film Fest


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re not ready to put Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete” into the Oscar race of 2010. But the upcoming “Grindhouse” spinoff is getting a nice launch at a proper festival known for kick-starting many an award’s campaign.

“Machete,” which began life as a teaser trailer for the Rodriguez-Tarantino “Grindhouse” mash up, will have its world premiere as part of the midnight film series for the Venive Film Festival. It will screen at midnight on Opening Night, following the already announced festival launcher “Black Swan,” by Darren Aronofsky.

Clearly, “Machete” isn’t counting on Oscar buzz. But its presence at Venice demonstrates the festival’s desire to satisfy all tastes, and not just cater to uppercrust film fans.

The full lineup for the 67th edition of the Venice Film Festival will be announced Thursday, and we’ll be curious to see if the programming leans more toward the prestige of “Black Swan” or the giddy, gory entertainment of “Machete.” The festival runs Sept. 1-11.
