The Expendables – Trailer
Slyvester Stallone’s latest directorial effort The Expendables has had us excited for a little while now, I mean who isn’t excited about the chance to revisit an 80’s action movie that features the men that dominated the genre in the 80’s (Stallone, Lundgren, Rourke, Willis and Schwarzenegger) throw in a couple of the modern action stars (Statham and Li), a couple of wrestlers (Couture and Austin) and you’ve got The Expendables.
If already watched the trailer then you already know that story is taking a back seat to the action in this film and I’m perfectly fine with that, the press release attached to the trailer gives the following synopsis:
After years of corruption , murder of American hostages and betrayal of foreign policies, The US with the help of other Nations secretly put together a squad of its most trained military personal to finally over throw the dictator who has caused devastation in South America for over 20 years. The team sets out on its mission to complete the assassination but with little help from the nations as they try to keep the mission secret. After they realize that there will be no outside help they rely on their own sources to fight not only the dictator’s army but also the Governments that set them up.
Translations = Explosions, lots and lots of explosions. Just watching the trailer makes me feel like I’ve been transported back into the 80’s and really now I’m really excited to check the film out when it gets released on the 20th April next year making it a great way to kick off the summer movie season.
