“Machete Kills” stars a crazy cast including Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Carlos Estevez (aka Charlie Sheen), Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson. Also starring in this film is Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga.

This film will be Lady Gaga’s acting debut, so I believe everyone’s excited to see how she’s going to be. While it’ll be a moment until the film is released, we can see some of what Lady Gaga has done in the new trailer for the film (embedded below). The trailer features a sneak peek of Lady Gaga’s never-before-released song “Aura,” from her upcoming album “ARTPOP” (available Nov. 11). To celebrate the song, “Machete Kills” has created a special lyric video featuring the entire song that will launch Tuesday, Oct. 8. If you want to be notified of the lyric video’s release, follow @MacheteKills.

Here’s the synopsis of “Machete Kills”:

“MACHETE KILLS is an action-packed thrill ride about the adventures of legendary secret agent Machete Cortez (Danny Trejo). In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President (Carlos Estevez) to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) from starting a nuclear war. With a bounty on his head, Machete faces death at every turn from an all-star cast of deadly assassins. Breaking all the rules, visionary director Robert Rodriguez leads this star-studded ensemble on one of the wildest adventures to save the world ever captured on film!”

“Machete Kills” will be in theaters Oct. 11.
