Sneak Peek at The Expendables
The boys are back in town indeed! Thanks to Ain’t It Cool, we have an awesome sneak peek of the upcoming TV spot for the Sylvester Stallone flick, The Expendables, which is about to explode into theatres on August 13th!
The badassery that is going on in The Expendables is pretty ridiculous. Just the cast is enough to make anyone who loves action films perk up and take notice. Let me just rattle off a few names for you: Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Steve Austin and Mickey Rourke. And did we forget to mention that the clip has Arnold Schwarzenegger in it? Oh, because it does. I cannot make this crap up, my friends.
If you are into watching shit get blown up, you’re going to love this movie. I personally have no use for the meat-head action flicks. I enjoy the comic book movies and the supernatural action flicks a lot more than I actually like this macho “Me man, me have gun!” type stuff. But my boyfriend keeps insisting that Stallone is worth watching. I will say this – I wish the clip from The A-Team was half as bad-ass as this clip is, because the dudes in it are at least ten times hotter. And yes, this is absolutely where my priorities lie. I am a chick, after all.
IMDb provides a pretty lengthy synopsis (MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!), which I am going to post below, but first check out The Expendables trailer and some really cool photos and stills from the movie.
Film Synopsis: Expendable: capable of being sacrificed in order to accomplish a military objective.
The Expendables is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren’t quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge – one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.
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.
When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza (David Zayas), the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra (Giselle Itie), a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe (Eric Roberts) and his henchman Paine (Steve Austin). When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own.
