'Machete Kills' Trailer Will Slay You, Son

Robert Rodriguez is clearly one sick and twisted film-making individual, but hey, it works.

The first trailer for his "Machete" follow-up titled "Machete Kills" is in, and it basically operates as a virtual Who's Who of the most oddball cats in Tinseltown.

Joining Danny Trejo for movie two of the "Grindhouse" spin-off series — which, let that seep in for just a second — are a bevy of randoms from across the entertainment biz spectrum, including Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Mel Gibson, Vanessa Hudgens, Demian Bichir, Sofia Vergara, Antonio Banderas, Alexa Vega, Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Cuba Gooding Jr. and, reprising her resident hot chick role, Jessica Alba. That's, uh, quite the spread he's got for this bloody display.

And, naturally, there are some pretty awesome little highlights to parse through here. First, we were particularly amused by this bit with Carlos Estevez Charlie Sheen as one take-no-names POTUS instructing someone off screen, "Let's go kick some a**" while ditching his nerdy specs ...

... and we really got a kick outta whatever was happening with Sofia Vergara's gun bosoms in this frame ...

... also, there was this bit with Lady Gaga, ever the flamboyant femme fatale, hailing down a trucker in stilettos and fur for some reason ...

... but most of all, we were totally owned once they showed us Mel Gibson doing machete stuff because c'mon.

You know what they say: go big or go home! (Or just go to the theaters on Sept. 13 to catch this bad boy on opening day.)

What do you get when you pair one ridiculously good looking person with another ridiculously good looking person? "Paranoia." Wait. What?!

Major she-hottie Amber Heard will become the on-screen love interest of "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth in Robert Luketic's new thriller "Paranoia," Variety now reports.

In the flick, adapted by Jason Dean Hall and Barry Levy from the Joseph Finder novel of the same name, Hemsworth stars as Adam Cassidy, a corporate peon who finds himself transformed into the pawn in a company spy game. Hemsworth's character tries to climb the corporate ladder by way of some illegal and unfortunate maneuvering and then is suckered into spying on a rival biz to avoid punishment by his boss. He has a one-night-stand with Heard's character but later finds her instrumental in his forced espionage scheming.

Sounds dangerous ... and sexy! Get More »

Amber Heard Revs Her Engines In 'Motor City'

Earlier this year she took a spin with Nicolas Cage in "Drive Angry," but now Amber Heard's peeling out and heading towards the "Motor City."

Deadline reports that the ultra-hottie beat out several other young hopefuls for the chance to burn rubber alongside "The Devil's Double" star Dominic Cooper in the gettin' outta jail and takin' revenge flick. "Motor City" became a priority project at Warner Bros. when Albert Hughes ("The Book of Eli") signed on to direct the script by Chad St. John, which originally contained no dialogue.

Whether this will still be a "silent movie" (presumably still with audible gunshots and blood splatters) remains to be seen, as the writer suggested to Scriptshadow that he was asked to write a version containing dialogue for Dark Castle producer Joel Silver. Get More »
