Machete premieres on Friday and the stars have been working the talk show circuit. Jessica Alba was on Letterman (swapping parenting tips). She told Jay Leno about buying his father the farm Don was born on. Don Johnson is doing the Craig Ferguson show.
I couldn’t find Danny Trejo or Robert Rodriguez listed as guests on anything. Nor could I find Michelle Rodriguez or DeNiro. I guess they’re going for a somewhat soft launch.
And speaking of launch, the world premiere of the flick takes place this Thursday at Austin’s Paramount Theatre.
The sold out screening starts at 8 p.m. with red carpet arrivals at 7:30pm. According to the Austin Film Society website, tickets to the after party at the Austin Studios are still available.
No word on who will be walking the red carpet, and considering the film screens on the opening night of the Venice Film Festival Wednesday, I fear the big names will be no shows.
