Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. If you didn’t shit your pants already then something must be seriously wrong with you. The great collection of washed up 80’s stars mixed with today’s action heroes in one film. A film that is directed by Simon West (Con Air) and features enough guns and knives in the trailer promo to gut half of Burma (which is a war zone).
The first teaser trailer for The Expendables 2 is up and it doesn’t really do anything besides establishing how bad ass it will (hopefully) be. The first film relied heavily on this marketing tool and it somehow still managed to have too much story! Let’s hope Sly and the gang learn this time around that we want more action and less story. People don’t throw flaming spears at wild animals and line up in the cold for days to see these guys attempt to win Oscar’s for best performances. We just want to watch them kill some people!
The Expendables 2 opens in theaters on August 17th, 2012.
