Escape Plan Trailer Busts Out
Sly and Arnie exit The Tomb...

28 June 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams

Previously known as The Tomb around these parts, the Stallone / Schwarzenegger prison break opus recently had a name change to Escape Plan. With that, here's the first full trailer, in which we learn that Arnold has gone grey, and that Sly "hits like a vegetarian".

As you'll just have gleaned, Escape Plan sees Stallone playing Ray Breslin, the world's greatest designer of utterly impregnable high-tec prisons, who has to beat an unbeatable system to escape after being framed for some reason or other. He's also menaced by a man with a tazer and a leather mask. Hate when that happens.

Schwarzenegger is kindly old lag Church, and Jim Caviezel is the prison's villainous warden. He should watch Lock Up and see how that turned out for Donald Sutherland. Elsewhere we've got Curtis "Fiddy" Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D'Onofrio as the prison's deputy director, and Amy Ryan as Sly's business partner on the outside, who gets to do the walking-away-from-explosion-without-looking thang.

Escape Plan is directed by Mikael Hafstrom, and washes up on these shores on September 27.

RE: Escape Plan Trailer Busts Out
Good god, I forgot Vinnie Jones was in this. I just hope his part is minuscule or maybe even cut altogether. More

bah
I was looking forward to this but then I see that 50 cent will be in it.. not so much anymore.. and they changed the great original title to a sloppy boring one! Also the plot/part of script was changed.. damn it More

Looks Solid
I'll watch this and a movie with Jim Caviezel/ Witt is always a good thing. More
