After a fake trailer, a real trailer, and then an actual movie, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Robert Rodriguez's "Machete" franchise. There are lots of guns, violence to go along, and beautiful women, who will also have big guns.
So when we hear something like, "Oh, hey, Sofia Vergara is going to be in 'Machete Kills,'" a thought that quickly follows that news is, "Oh, that's pretty cool. She'll probably have guns coming out of her breasts or something." Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.
A new character poster for the "Grindhouse" spin-off sequel has debuted online (via Dread Central), and your first thought about her character is also the correct one.

In addition to lucking out in scoring some new "Sin City" intel from Robert Rodriguez recently for our "A Dame To Kill For" preview, we also had the opportunity to check in on his other buzzworthy, star-studded 2013 release, "Machete Kills" and what may or may not lead a third Machete film to be set in space.
Rodriguez admitted that he's finishing editing on "Kills" in the midst of his directing duties on "A Dame To Kill For," and that we should expect some teasers soon.
"That's a really fun, really cool movie and another incredible amazing cast," he said. "I'm having a grand time, that was a fun production. I think we'll be trying to tease out images very soon."
This year's Sundance Film Festival marks the 20th anniversary of the Park City debut of Robert Rodriguez's breakout indie "El Mariachi." To mark the occasion, the director hosted a screening of the film that led to two sequels, "Desperado" and "Once Upon a Time In Mexico," and he also stopped by MTV News to share the story of his first Sundance and talk about a potential future for the series.
Rodriguez and the second man to play the Mariachi, Antonio Banderas, recently reteamed for the first time since 2011. The actor filmed a brief cameo in Rodriguez's "Grindhouse" spin-off sequel "Machete Kills." The two had so much fun, talk once again turned to returning to the character that made them.
"We forgot about how much fun we've had together," Rodriguez said. "We decided we have to do something. We want to do another 'El Mariachi' movie at some point. We always said we would, but [we'd shoot it] much later when he's older and rounder."
Two films whose futures remained unclear, especially considering that they didn't have a release date, have just landed fall premieres.
According to Box Office Mojo, "Gravity," Alfonso Cuarón's long-delayed sci-fi epic, and "Machete Kills," the follow-up to Robert Rodriguez's "Grindhouse" spin-off, will finally hit theaters this October and September, respectively.
Cuarón's first feature film in seven years stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts who get stranded in space when their shuttle is destroyed. "Gravity" was originally expected to premiere this past fall, but a delay in May pushed it to an indefinite 2013 date. When it does finally bow on October 4, you'll be able to catch "Gravity" in IMAX.

Robert Rodriguez gave Alexa Vega her breakout role in "Spy Kids" when the actress was 12 years-old, and now that she's 24, the director is giving her the opportunity to show off her more—umm—adult side.
Vega tweeted out a picture from "Machete Kills," Rodriguez's follow-up to his "Grindhouse" spin off, and let's just say that her costume isn't exactly "Spy Kids" appropriate.

Update: Well, that didn't take long. Ben Stiller spoke out on Twitter to kill this rumor.
Rumor has it that not only does Ben Stiller want Lady Gaga to join the cast of "Zoolander 2," but he's also offered her $4.8 million for the role.
We should preface this by saying that this news is about as far from confirmed as a story can be. But we've heard in the past that Stiller and co. were interested in getting Lady Gaga on board for the project, and a new story from The Sun seems to confirm that news. The British paper claims that Gaga has been asked to play a major role in the movie: the "love interest for the former model rivals," played by Stiller and Owen Wilson.
The outlet also claims that Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are all potential candidates should Gaga say no. We don't see why she would, though, as Lady Gaga has already filmed her Hollywood debut in "Machete Kills."
Machete is officially set to kill in 2013. The former Mexican federale will return next year in "Machete Kills," Robert Rodriguez's follow-up to the original, which was based on a fake trailer he made for "Grindhouse."
Open Road Films just picked up the North American distribution rights to the sequel, and the first image from the movie hit the web shortly after the announcement to celebrate.

"Scary Movie 5" seems to have gathered together every celebrity we never expected to see in one movie together.
The latest to join the cast of the long-running comedy franchise are Mike Tyson, Audrina Patridge and Kendra Wilkinson. Blackfilm.com reports that the trio will join the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Ashley Tisdale, Molly Shannon, Terry Crews, Heather Locklear and Kate Walsh in the horror film spoof. Like we said, this isn't a cast that you see every day.
Bryan Cranston is directing an episode of "The Office" next season, but we wish this photo was from the long-awaited "Office"-"Breaking Bad" crossover event.

Did you think you were excited about this Friday's release of "The Expendables 2"? Well just wait until you hear who plans to join the cast of "The Expendables 3."
In a conversation with Total Film, producer Avi Lerner let slip that Nicolas Cage is already on board for a role in the third "Expendables" movie. In addition, Lerner is in talks with Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford about joining the film, is considering bringing Mickey Rourke back for more and plans to start discussions with Wesley Snipes about coming on board a future film once he is released from prison next summer. If even one of those prospective stars joins in addition to Cage, we're looking at some serious star power being added to number three. Our minds will melt if we try to imagine all four of them joining in addition to Cage.
Since we're on the topic of listing off every awesome action star who should join the crew of these films, we've decided to compile five other actors who deserve spots alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.
