Imagine this… Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts all in one movie… wouldn’t that be a blast, don’t you think so? The action stars of the 80’s, 90’s and the 2000’s all combined to make one explosive movie.
And it will be coming to theaters this August 2010.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, The Expendables is the next big Action movie that features the “men in a mission” theme.
Here is the plot of the movie from IMDB.com (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1320253/):
“Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as removing those hard to get at stains. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.
Personally, I am excited and is looking forward to this movie. If the action is as good as is seen on the trailers, then this will be the best action movie for 2010.
As closing, I’ve included some trailers in my post, courtesy of youtube.com. Enjoy!
