Action-Packed Expendables Still Arrives
Arnie, Sly and Bruce break 'em off some

30 April 2012  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: The Void

In the first Expendables, you'll recall there was only a single scene shared by the holy trinity of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. It was entirely dialogue, contained Arnie's whole cameo role, and was framed in such a way that you might almost suspect the three were barely even in the studio together at the same time.

Today however, there's this...


That'll be Trent Mauser, Barney Rubble Ross and Mr Church, shooting something, in the same location, in a three-shot. And all is right with the world.

The Expendables 2, as if you needed telling, is directed by Simon "Con Air" West, and stars the aforementioned god-like action veterans, along with Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van-Damme, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Scott Adkins and Nan Yu. A collection of rather lovely posters arrived at the end of last week, and the film's out in the UK on August 17.

Looks good.
Are they like fighting in an abandoned mall or something? This will probably be a good flick. More

wahey!!
they do look like theyre having fun dont they?! the three angry republicans shooting at the words 'big government'! or maybe someone's set up some old Planet Hollywood menus... or maybe a runner said they preferred the original Get Carter, asked about Hudson Hawk and commented on the need for politicians to keep their Uzi 9mms in their pants! Either way, I'll be going to see this, just hope there's a bit more 'plot' than the first one and that Norris doesn't ruin it by being all... Norris-y More

Shame what Arnie's done to his face. He now constantly looks like he's just woken up. More
