Terry Crews Confirms Expendables 2 R Rating And Promises Better Sequel

The Expendables 2 is coming to theaters next month, which means they need to do a lot of publicity to wash that bad taste out of our mouths that was The Expendables. Sylvester Stallone‘s first action mega-film was a bust and the second go looks to be more of the same, with even more washed up stars making an appearance.

One positive coming from this sequel is the confirmed R rating, which includes “strong bloody violence throughout”.

Actor Terry Crews went on to say this about the film, via Screen Rant:

“I think the coolest part about [‘The Expendables 2’ is that we [the main cast] have a better rapport. You get to see a little more of what we are like together, even in the downtime. Whereas the first one was just action, action, action, I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised when they get a little more of our characters, because we didn’t have time for backstory in the first one. This one, you get to learn a little bit more about Dolph [Lundgren], Randy [Couture], myself and how we interact with Sly and Jason [Statham].”

And

“… It kind of opened things up for me in a lot of ways, took advantage of my comedic timing. I don’t look at myself as a badass. I’ve never done that. With comedies I’ve done, all the things, I can’t do that. But Sly knew how to work with all our gifts and I get a nice hefty load of some of the comedic stuff.”

Sounds like he’s simply telling us what we want to hear. We’ll be the judge of that come August 17th, 2012.
