If there is one quality to attribute to Robert Rodrigeuz, it wouldn’t be subtlety. The Texas-based filmmaker has had a busy last few months, wrapping up production on Machete Kills and jumping right to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and now we’ve got a new character poster for the former film, one that puts all of his interests on display.
Featuring a bullet-spewing Sofia Vergara, we’ve Rodriguez’s ideal mix of sex and violence. Don’t be too quick to judge, however, as the filmaker told EW, “to lay the problems of gun violence on movies diminishes the importance of the real issues.” Led by Danny Trejo, the cast for the actioner includes Lady Gaga, Vanessa Hudgens, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Zoe Saldana, Edward James Olmos, William Sadler, Mark Zaror, Demián Bichir, and Mel Gibson as the villain. Check out the official synopsis below, followed by the poster.

Machete Kills arrives on September 13th.
