CATEGORIES Movie NewsYour favorite action stars of yesteryear have arrived in a gun-toting, plotless teaser for 'The Expendables 2.' Plotless, because there are approximately 20 seconds of footage in this, most of it dedicated to Bruce Willis' character, Mr. Church, speaking in a growly voice to Sylvester Stallone's Barney Ross. There are also several cutaways to the cast shooting assault rifles (including Arnold Schwarzenegger, who hasn't fired a gun onscreen since 2003's 'Terminator 3'). That said, it's not like this film is aiming for Oscar glory -- this is supposed to be a shoot-em-up, badass blockbuster. From the looks of it, it will easily exceed those expectations.
'The Expendables 2,' which stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme (or, as the trailer states, "also Van Damme"), Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, and tennis star Novak Djokovic (seriously), explodes into theaters Aug. 17, 2012.
You can check out the teaser below. Head to Apple to see the HD version.
