Expendables 2 has a new poster and movie trailer out that features Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. There is an unofficial poster being distributed on the Internet, so to not be confused, we posted the one straight from the movie studio. By the looks of the trailer, this film looks great, and I hope this isnt one of those videos that only contain the few best scenes.
The second “Expendables” installment will be released in 2012 with a group of veteran actors who know the genre better than anybody else. In other words, these are the real action movie icons, and the people behind this film want you to know that.
For the first time in the franchise, Stallone will only be an actor and not the co-writer or director. He’s taking a step back to in the sequel as those jobs are now being handled by a brilliant team. David Agosto, Ken Kaufman, and Simon West (Con Air, The Mechanic) are the screenwriters.
In addition, Shelly Johnson, who helped with the brilliant action sequences in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, has taken over the cinematography.
Here’s the official announcement that came with the The Expendables 2 trailer was also released. It’s obvious that they want this to become a summer blockbuster in 2012. There’s one part in the trailer that reminds me of the “Terminator” film when Schwarzenegger is shooting a big gun in some place that looks like a cafeteria.
This movie is backed by a good team and so far, there’s no official word yet on what the plot of Expendables 2 will entail. We also received word that some of the stars are doing their own action stunts. Schwarzenegger sent over a photo of him bleeding at the forehead after filming one of his stunts.
The Expendables 2 will hit U.S. theaters on August 17th, 2012.
