The New Orleans local news did a story on the “Expendables” being filmed in their city. They describe this movie “Rambo X’s 10”. Meaning that the “Expendables” will be more violent than the Rambo movies.
See it here:
Reading the “Expendables” blog, it looks like the violence could be much worse than Rambo. They’re doing all real stunts, and sounds like they are doing real fighting. Real punching and real kicking with real injuries, and everything. Of course, the only thing that’s not real is the gun shooting. They are using real explosions and all that.
I don’t understand why Sly has to release this in the Spring of 2010, when a movie like this will be a perfect, Christmas release.
Sly is almost done with the movie. They’re almost done filming in New Orleans, then they shoot in Los Angeles for the Sly, Arny, and Church scenes last.
After Sly’s finished filming the movie, he’ll have to edit it and put it all together. Keeping the scenes that are right and taking out the scenes that aren’t. Adding sounds effects, musical scores, regular songs by artists/bands for the film soundtrack and whatever last finishing touches they do before release date.
Look like this film is aiming for a 2 hour running length since they aren’t filming for that long. It could be even a little less, maybe an hour and 40 minutes, or worse, a 90 minute film again.
I’m usually never that excited for movies that I’m interested in seeing but like I said before, “The Expendables” is one film that I’m pretty psyched to see. Yeah, I do get a little excited for some movies coming out that I like, but not that excited, but this one I’m very excited and pumped to be seeing.
I’m sure Sly will NOT dissapoint. A film like this is an action movie fan’s dream come true. I’m sure this film will get all action movie fans satisfied, since his last “Rambo” movie got mixed reviews. Sly just wants to make the best action movie possible and he is trying, I think he will do it with this one. This isn’t the biggest movie Sly has ever done, but it certainly is the biggest action movie ever.
