The second trailer for "Machete Kills" was released just last week and provided further, stunning insight into Ms. Gaga's role as La Chameleón.
It seems the film centers around The President of the United States (Charlie Sheen - er, Carlos Estevez) being threatened by the requisite Mexican megalomaniac (Mel Gibson) aiming a missile at the White House. Thus, The President of the United States summons Machete (Danny Trejo).
This is how we come to find the requisite Mexican megalomaniac declaring "You can't beat my army of super soldiers." And as he says this the trailer accentuates the line with this shot...
So it would seem Lady Gaga is one of Mel Gibson's super soldiers. Which seems a little odd when you consider Lady Gaga is a fairly staunch advocate of gay rights and Mel Gibson is.....uh.....never mind.
There are other super soldiers, such as Cuba Gooding Jr. who, as you might remember from our previous "Machete Kills" trailer breakdown, more or less shared the same character name as Lady Gaga. (El Camaleon.) Why, we wondered? Well, in trailer #2 he declares: "Now you've seen my face."
Which leads to this shot (by the way, who needs a refreshing Pepsi all of a sudden?)...
Which leads to this shot...
Which leads to us to the inescapable conclusion that La Chameleón & El Camaleon are one in the same!
Does this mean Lady Gaga is part-(ex)owner of that Supporting Actor Oscar that Cuba Gooding Jr. was forced to return to the Academy post-"Snow Dogs"?
Until October 11th.
