Bomb of the Week, MACHETE KILLS Implodes at the Box Office
According to Deadline.com, Machete Kills is expected to hit less than $4 million over the weekend. The film's marketing highlighted its overly campy nature, which can be a tough sell. Not helping the film were reviews which said it was far worse than the original Machete. With the first Machete having grossed just $26 million at the domestic box office, Machete Kills had modest expectations. Yet, a $4 million opening weekend can still be filed as a disappointment.
The action thriller, starring Danny Trejo and Sofia Vergara hit theaters on October 11th and co-stars Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Carlos Estevez, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.
Trejo once again takes on the role of ex-Federale agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man - he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet.
