Rodríguez was just as effusive. “I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!” he wrote. He included a photo of the singer as “La Chameleón” her scantily clad character, holding a gun.
Gaga is pictured topless, but covers her private parts with a wolf draped over her shoulder. She holds a golden pistol with a smoking silencer. She’s wearing a Marilyn Monroe-style wig and thigh-high stockings.
“Machete Kills” is the second installment to the “Machete” trilogy. Danny Trejo stared in the first film as the title character, along with Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Don Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez and Steven Seagal Lindsay Lohan had a cameo role.
The films are a homage to action exploitation films. “Machete” was featured as a fictional movie in Rodriguez’s and Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 exploition film “Grindhouse.” Rodriguez capitalized on its popularity to create a real film series.
“Machete” grossed more than $44 million worldwide against a budget of $10.5 million, which makes it a solid success, according to boxofficemojo. The film also scored among critics with a respectable 73 percent rating on rottentomatoes.
