The Expendables 2 – 2012 Movie Trailer

(Also check out the 12 character movie posters for The Expendables 2.)

Last year’s film The Expendables was a fun action ensemble film. Stallone compared the film to Ocean’s Eleven, but with weathered action stars. I thought it was impressive to see some of our generation’s biggest action stars working together on a film. But as far as the plot and action sequences, etc, The Expendables was maybe above average. The film however, did make some money, so it wasn’t too surprising that a sequel was announced.

The Expendables 2  exists as a passion project for Sylvester Stallone. Out of his sheer will he’s made the film happen. He’s massaged egos, worked around schedules and recruited talent for the film. This time Stallone has also sacrificed the directorial reigns for the film, so that he could focus on acting, as well as the script.  Stallone has also amped up the action quota by bringing in action film veterans Jean Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris. Not only that,  he’s promised significantly bigger roles for action film legends Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. So will bigger mean better? That’s left to be seen. But just the fact that he’s assembled such an impressive cast makes the film one of the biggest and most anticipated films of 2012.

The Expendables 2 stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film is directed by Simon West and the screenplay is written by Sylvester Stallone. The Expendables 2 is scheduled for release August 17, 2012.

Official Synopsis:

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….
