The third trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming action thriller Machete Kills is the charm for Lady Gaga fans, as it features a preview of new song “Aura” as well as scenes from the Mother Monster’s first foray into acting.
In the trailer, Gaga is sent strolling the desert in a bright yellow bathing suit, what is surely a fake fur stole and a massive handgun as she waves down a passing 18-wheeler, sporting a matching yellow wig reminiscent of her look in the 2009 music video for “Telephone” with Beyonce.
Gaga is featured prominently at the 1:30 mark of the trailer, with a stylized cloudy sky passing behind her as she points the gun at an unseen victim on the ground and delivering what sounds like her character El Cameleon’s tagline, “straight up or with some flair.”
Machete Kills features a cavalcade of A-list stars alongside Lady Gaga, including Sofia Vergara, Antonio Banderas, Vaness Hudgens and Charlie Sheen (going by his birth name, Carlos Estevez).
Gaga’s Little Monsters will get to hear “Aura” in its entirety when a special Machete Kills-themed lyric video for the song is released next Tuesday, October 8.
ARTPOP, Gaga’s anticipated new album that features “Aura” (as well as current single, “Applause”) is scheduled to drop on November 11.
