Robert Rodriguez unveils 'Machete' at Comic-Con

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Robert Rodriguez loves Comic-Con, but the San Diego Convention Center is just too limiting. So the filmmaker decided to unveil his new movie, "Machete," at a street-corner party instead.

Rodriguez showed about seven minutes of footage from the film at an outdoor party Thursday night that featured free tacos and margaritas, scantily clad dancers, a dozen tricked-out low-rider cars and a graffiti wall.

Stars Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez were on hand for the celebration. The film also stars Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Segal, Don Johnson and Lindsay Lohan.

The clip was sexy, bloody and action-packed, including a scene where Trejo's character slices open an opponent's stomach and rappels down a wall with his intestine.

"Machete" opens in September.
