UK Machete character poster for Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills

The character posters for Robert Rodriguez’ Machete sequel Machete Kills just keep on coming. Now the UK is in on the act with Empire debuting an incredibly red image of Machete himself. This has serious overtones of  Rodriguez’ Planet Terror poster, but that’s never a bad thing.

The film marks the second in a planned trilogy and follows the titular anti-hero on a mission to stop an arms dealer who is trying to start a global war.

Danny Trejo returns as Machete, with Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Alex Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror, and  Mel Gibson all featuring.

Machete Kills is out today, October 11th, in Ireland.

The U.S. government recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.
