Michelle Rodriguez, Maggie Q join EW’s ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ Comic-Con panel

From this great EW piece: “One of Rodriguez’s costars challenged the script that called for her to drive a car off a cliff.

Rodriguez : “He was like, ‘A girl’s not gonna drive the car.’ I’m like, what, are you stupid? I’m looking at this cat like, do you want to race me, homie?” I’m betting that cat backed off pretty fast.
If they’d added Zoe Bell, it would have been cool. Gina Carano would have been pretty great, too. If they’d added Pam Grier, though, that might just have tipped me over to attending this year (or at least seriously looking into it). But with Ms. Rodriguez (who I have personally and shamelessly worshiped since seeing “Girlfight” back in the day), plus Ms. Sackhoff, and Ms. Guira…the ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ panel, the (last ever, sniffle) Breaking Bad panel, and the Godzilla Encounter make me regret my decision to not even try to attend due to monetary issues (AKA being WAY too broke to even consider it).

 

First Look: Machete Kills Amber Heard and Gets a Lapdance! (Dread Central)

Just to clarify,  Machete doesn’t actually kill Amber Heard. Even on the off-chance he does ending killing her character, we’re pretty sure her she doesn’t give him a lap dance AFTER she’s dead.* We thought we’d seen other stills from Machete Kills (behind-the-scenes ones and about 6 seconds of B-roll footage, featuring Trejo and Columbian sex bomb Sofia Vergaragentlemen, start your engines) but this must be the first official one.  Wow, Machete sure is popular with the ladies!

Bom-chicka-bom bommm…

We loved reading quotes Mr. Trejo gave during interviews promoting Machete (2010) talking about his female co-stars  (sure wish we could find the one we’re gonna repeat). He said Lindsey Lohan was a complete professional and never late (I’m not a huge fan of hers, but somehow it was sort of refreshing to hear someone who worked with her say positive things), knew her lines, etc. He spoke of Jessica Alba‘s stunning beauty but damn near waxed poetic when it came to Michelle Rodriguez (as “Shè) .. “Michelle …she is like a tear from God’s eye.”

Can't argue with Mr. Trejo on that one.

Machete Kills had a release date in July, but last we heard, it has been bumped back to September 13th due to that stupid fucking lawsuit. We’ll let you know if we hear different, though!

*Unless the plot descriptions we’ve read so far are wildly inaccurate, or we missed some BIG plot element that announced zombies would be involved.  She doesn’t look dead to us.

**of course, I think Lohan shot all her scenes over a few days since it was sort of an ensemble cast. Didn’t mind her in Machete, though!
