The voluptuous Colombian actress is often seen gallivanting in from-fitting, very low-cut dresses on the Emmy-winning sitcom "Modern Family" but nothing about her explosive character poster for Robert Rodriquez's Machete sequel is all-ages.
Machete Kills finds the always-awesome Danny Trejo reprising his role as the vengeful ex-Federale, who evaded death last time around and is now working with the U.S. government in Mexico to battle an arms dealer. Though he's made a deal with The Man, we doubt this has made Machete soft and along for the ride are even more gun-baring babes including Sofia Vergara as Madame Desdemona, Alexa Vega as KillJoy, Vanessa Hudgens as Cereza, Amber Heard as Miss San Antonio, Lady Gaga as La Chameleón with Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez returning for the sequel. Rodriguez has also decided to round out his cast with a few headscratchers in the form of Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, as the U.S. President no less, Cuba Gooding Jr., Antonio Banderas and Demián Bichir.

Reitman ended up pulling together a star-studded ensemble, led by Seth Rogen, Jack Black and Rainn Wilson. Rogen played Peter Venkman (originally by Bill Murray), Black as Ray Stantz (originally by Dan Aykroyd) and Wilson as Egon Spengler (originally by Harold Ramis). Other cast members of the live read included Kristen Bell, Phil LaMarr, Kevin Pollak, Mae Whitman, Paul Rust and Paul Scheer.Read the Ghostbusters tweets, plus see the stars' reactions to the Golden Globe nominations and the Man of Steel trailer debut beyond the cut!
By evening’s end, it was social media that stood out among all other communication platforms, with Twitter providing an outlet for candidate messages, reporter analyses and public debates. According to Twitter spokeswoman Rachael Horwitz, the site experienced over 31 million election-related tweets, making the night “the most tweeted about event in U.S. political history.” Tons of film industry icons were part of the frenzy on Twitter in the moments following Obama’s victory, from director Spike Lee to actress Jessica Alba. Some tweets were funny, some were serious, but above all, the messages were a testament to the first “Twitter Election.” (Make sure to take note of Ben Stiller’s ability to comically “get to the point”).

Robert Rodriguez deliberately tried to make his latest Spy Kids adventure a bit of a stinker.
Rodriguez, who helped usher in the new age of 3-D movies with the franchise's third installment in 2003, is billing Spy Kids: All the Time in the World as a 4-D flick, adding scent cards so audiences can follow along on the action with their noses.
Here's how it works: Viewers are given scratch-and-sniff cards with circles numbered 1 to 8. When a number appears on screen, they rub the corresponding circle on their cards, which give off a whiff matching what the characters are smelling.
Rodriguez calls his gimmick "Aroma-Scope." He tried it out at test screenings and found that children and parents had a good time with it.
"When it came time to do Spy Kids 4, I couldn't just go back and do 3-D like everybody else is now. I had to bring something extra," Rodriguez said. "Just watching my own kids with interactive gaming, you ask them to watch a movie, it just feels so passive to them. I thought, this helps bridge the gap. It's an interactive thing, almost like playing a game while you're watching the movie."
It sounds like some sort of time-management voodoo. With a toddler in tow, Jessica Alba claims to have maximized her quality time while doing more movies than ever — four this year alone. The secret: small, but eye-catching parts in lieu of starring roles. In her latest, Robert Rodriguez’s gritty, campy Grindhouse spin-off Machete, she even plays twins, doubling the payoff.
“It was cool, it was crazy, it was fun,” Alba says of Machete during a recent L.A. interview. The film stars craggy-faced Danny Trejo as the title character, a Chicano hired gun who’s double-crossed when he’s assigned to assassinate an immigrant-hating U.S. politician (Robert De Niro), and is based on a fake movie trailer Rodriguez produced as filler between his movie and Quentin Tarantino’s in the B-movie double-bill Grindhouse. Machete’s tagline: “They just fu--ed with the wrong Mexican!”
