It's a big movie weekend....The Tom Hanks Somali Pirates Movie is Up Against "Machete Kills"
Just so you don't waste your hard earned dollars, here are previews of both!
1. Danny Trejo IS Machete. In the sequel, he's asked by the President to go to Mexico and stop a terrorist from starting a nuclear war. Mel Gibson plays the main villain, and Charlie Sheen is the president.
This movie includes a few firsts. It's the first time in Charlie's career that he's been credited under his TRUE name, Carlos Estevez . . . it's the first time Mel Gibson has been cast as the villain . . .
2. Tom Hanks plays Captain Richard Phillips, the guy whose ship was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. It's based on the true story about the military standoff that ensued as they held him hostage while the crew stayed locked in the engine room.
The taking of his freighter, the Maersk Alabama, was the first time an American cargo ship had been hijacked in nearly two hundred years.
