“What’s the plan?” asks Lee Christmas (Jason Statham).
“Track em, find em, kill em,” replies Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone).
The Expendables 2 hits theaters on August 17, and I’m counting down the days to a new list of unforgettable action-movie cliches.
“The Expendables bring back that old time Rock n Roll,” says Stallone in this behind-the-scenes video. The bts vid features a montage of explosions, guns, and over-the-hill action heroes from the 80s. However, that’s what makes it so damn cool for fanboys (raising hand).
The cast includes: Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sly calls the roster a “minor miracle,” which it is considering the careers these actors have had. It’s hard to think of an action movie from the 80s or 90s that did not feature one of these talents (Steven Seagal aside).
Here’s the bts video:
Which Expendables character are you looking forward to the most? Personally, I can’t wait to see Norris back on the big screen, with a few Walker, Texas Ranger jokes.
