Lady Gaga Debuts New Song In Latest Machete Kills Trailer

In the latest trailer for the grind house flick, Machete Kills, Lady Gaga teases her new song, “Aura.” The song will be featured on her new album, ARTPOP, which will be available November 11th. Not only that, but the new trailer is also very Gaga-centric, giving fans a closer look at her film debut. In Machete Kills, Gags plays La Camaleón, an assassin hired to take down Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo).


The sequel to Machete tells the story of legendary secret agent Cortez, who is recruited by the U.S. President to stop a crazed global terrorist from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins, including Lady Gaga. The film hits theaters on October 11th.

    Outside of the inspired bit where Machete catapults through a window using a dude’s intestines, the first film wasn’t very good, even within the “Grindhouse” conceit (which I don’t think Rodriguez even fully comprehends, wherein Tarantino’s much derided Death Proof half is startlingly accurate to the point of detriment – I think Death Proof is a fucking delight), this at least seems kind of fun, and I dig the hyperactive color palate that Rodriguez seems to be ripping off wholesale from Nicolas Winding Refn/Hobo with a Shotgun.

    Rodriguez not actually writing the screenplay can only be a step up in terms of quality as far a I’m concerned.

    @boring: You’re right. I liked Planet Terror and Machete, which is essentially an extension of that film, but something that he did then as he continues to do now is treat it like a parody made by a fanboy whereas Tarantino treats his material in Death Proof with a respect.

    Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Britney…all pretentious and/or fake. Nuff said.

    LOVE it! Can’t wait for ARTPOP and seeing if Gaga has any acting skills in this film. Just over a month left! :D

    @Red Meat: It has nothing to do with the comedic approach and has everything to do with Rodriguez misinterpreting what made a Grindhouse Movie a Grindhouse Movie – it’s all literally surface as he simply does what he does and throws a scratchy print filter on the end result, whereas Tarantino finely constructs – he doesn’t deconstruct mind you – he creates an exacting replica of those films.

    Simply put, Robert Rodriguez made a film you always hoped Grindhouse movies were going to be in your most wildest of dreams but never were, where Tarantino actually made the Grindhouse movie you always got.

    I take genre filmmaking VERY seriously.

    @Red Meat: Whoa! That’s not what I said at all! Calm down, dude.

    Maybe it’s not the greatest movie of all time ( cause it’s not) But it seems like a funny, interesting and absurdly entertainment. Gaga looks fierce :) love the song.

    I don’t know, to me Planet Terror seemed more straightforward, and Death Proof more self-referential with all the knowing dialogue. They were both good parodies of different types of films, but to each their own. I enjoyed Machete, heard MKills is not as political, which is disappointing. I’ll still be there.
