is one of those men you take one look at and understand, without a doubt, you should never cross. Ever. Perhaps this is a byproduct of his being a real-life, former convict (San Quentin, no less), a boxing champion, having a physique that implies he could - and probably will - stab you at any given point, or being nicknamed simply "The Mayor", but in any case, Danny Trejo ain't nuttin' to f*** with. That he's also once of the nicest and hardest-working character actors in Hollywood only serves to emphasize his all-around badassery (totally a word).

We next get to see him slicing and dicing his way through a rapidly increasing body count in Machete Kills, 's follow-up sequel to 2010's original Machete. While we don't know much about the plot, it's shaping up to be another over-the-top splatterfest:

The U.S. government recruits Machete to battle his way through Mexico in order to take down an arms dealer who looks to launch a weapon into space.

So all of that sounds ridiculous and amazing and about what you'd expect from the Machete franchise. To celebrate, here are a few new stills from the flick that emphasize the two things the franchise does best: Moustaches worthy of 70s-era pornstars, and violence:
