The writers at Cinemart have a penchant for 1980s action movies and we’re pretty darn excited about the August release of The Expendables 2. The first one was no great shakes but watched with an audience (rather than at home on DVD) it’s goofy charms were much more apparent. Simon ‘Con Air’ West is helming this sequel and the whole gang is back (bar Mickey Rourke) with some new characters thrown into the lively mix. Arnie and Bruce Willis will also reprise their roles as Howser and Mr. Church. Did you not see the recent trailer in which Arnie rips the door off a Smart car? Genius.
Cinemart is also a great fan of the man we like to call The Stath and sometimes Jay Stay. Will that one stick? Who knows… anyway, a new clip has appeared as if by magic online and features Stath and Sly flying down a zip wire whilst shooting heavy artillery (insane).
The Expendables 2 is released in the UK and USA on 17th August. Please be a superior sequel, please be a superior sequel …
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason 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….
UK Release Date: 17th August
