Why Fans of Lost, Cinco de Mayo, and Lindsay Lohan May Want to Check Out Machete

Uh, wow. Robert Rodriguez's Mexploitation-inspired Machete might seem, at first glance, to have a limited audience. It's about a Mexican man who kills his enemies with, yes, machetes, and is an offshoot from Grindhouse, the Rodriguez-Quentin Tarantino collaboration that did only slightly better box office than the cult classics that inspired it. But the Machete trailer Rodriguez cheekily released to coincide with Cinco de Mayo suggests his film may have something for almost everyone. To wit:

Losties: Show veterans Michelle Rodriguez and Jeff Fahey have key roles.

Lindsay Lohan fans: Lohan looks good as a pistol-packing nun, or at least a woman dressed as one. Between this and Linda Lovelace, give her credit for taking on interesting roles.
