I’m hoping, the sequel to the “Expendables” will be much better than the first one, like everyone else. I did like the first, “Expendables” movie, but I’ll admit that the first film did have some problems. Hopefully, the sequel will be an improvement. What I enjoy most about the “Expendables”, is the character of Dolph, he’s probably my favorite character out of the group. Dolph does the best acting out of the cast, in my opinion, I just want the movies to do more with him. Hopefully, the sequel will have more Dolph screen time.
The trailer is full of 80’s action stars I grew up watching over the years. Arnold made an announcement in the trailer saying, “I’m back”, which is what he means that he’s back in the movies. This is Arnold’s first big screen movie since after his governor run.
While I’m a huge fan of Sly, I don’t like his look in this movie though, the mustache kind of bothers me. I’m hoping this film will be good. I’m pretty excited about the film, but I’m more excited to see, “The Avengers”, and “The Dark Knight: Rises”.
“The Expendables 2” teaser is finally here. There’s nothing much on it for now, it’s just a teaser. It just shows all the cast members. The trailer shows Chuck Norris, and Van Damme. Best of all, it also shows Arnold holding a gun!!!! How cool is it to finally see Arnold with a gun for the big screen? After a 7 year long fucking wait of Arnold’s governor shit, he’s finally back to where he belongs. Action films on the big screen!!!
I did like the first “Expendables” movie, but only for the action & fight scenes. The action scenes for the first film was fine, it was just the writing that had lots of problems. Hopefully the plot will be an improvement for the sequel. I’ll be seeing the new film in theater for sure.
“The Expendables” Twitter page just announced that Jet Li finally arrived in Rio today in Brazil. The Twitter page also said, “is that a can of whup ass I just heard opening?” Keep in mind that catchphrase, “Can of whoop ass” is a comment that Stone Cold used to say in WWE. So it sounds like Jet Li may have a big fight scene with Stone Cold in the movie as well.
I’ll be on the lookout for pics of Jet Li in Brazil this weekend. They’ll be surfacing the web at some point.
Sly Stallone just announced he just hired Robert Earl to produce “The Expendables” with him. Robert Earl is the CEO of Planet Hollywood restaurants/musuems. Earl revealed that he will heavily promote “The Expendables” at all Planet Hollywood sites across the globe, including the one in New York City in Times Square. So if you go to any of the Planet Hollywoods expect to see movie posters and cardboard cutouts of characters of the film “The Expendables” all over the place.
This article also confirms that Dolph Lundgren is definitely in the movie too.
I wonder who the female lead will be for “The Expendables”? Will he get an actress we’ve never heard of before like he always does or will he get a big name actress? Who knows. I’m sure we’ll hear about a female lead soon.
Edit to add: For a female lead, I think Sly should just get Talia Shire from the Rocky movies. Talia can play a different character in “The Expendables”. I’d like to see Sly and Talia together again!!!
Sylvester Stallone is set to star the leading role and direct an action film titled “Expendables”. This is one of the two film deals Sly made with Nu Image/Millenium from last year. Sly wrote the script for the film. Jason Statham has signed on to co-star alongside Sly and Jet Li is in final negotiations to star in the film as well.
The story to “Expendables” centers around a team of mercernaries on a mission to overthrow the South American dictator. Filming of “Expendables” will begin in February in Costa Rica and Louisiana.
Jason Statham is an action movie star who starred in such films as “The Transporter” trilogy, “The Bank Job”, “Crank”, and his latest movie “Death Race”.
