Most of the staff is pretty psyched for The Expendables. As part of his Bad Ass Cinema 10 in ’10, Rob Sutton pegged it as the movie he’s most looking forward to this year.
Back in October 2009, a promo trailer was leaked online and many entertainment sites (including ours) had to remove it at the request of Lionsgate. That trailer was more or less a reel to sell the film to distributors overseas. But Lionsgate has finally released the first official trailer for The Expendables on Yahoo. The good news: the movie looks to have some stellar, old-school ’80s action. The bad news: we have to wait until August to see it.
Remember the baby boom that occurred once the men returned home after World War II? This movie WILL have the same effect. Like a Chuck Norris roundhouse kick to the face, women may not be able to walk right because of so much sexual healing after this movie comes out in theaters. In fact, theaters should just give out a free condom with every ticket purchased.
In The Expendables, a group of mercenaries is hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge — one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.
Written, directed and starring Sylvester Stallone, the action flick also stars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Steve Austin, and special appearances by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Lionsgate will drop this nuclear explosion of male testosterone in theaters on August 13, 2010.
