If ever a movie epitomised what The All Action No Plot Movie Blog stood for, then 2010’s The Expendables was that movie!
Well, now it’s back, with the appropriately named The Expendables 2. Even the title harks back to those action flicks of the 80’s and 90’s.
Apart from the mindless action, gunfights and explosions the one thing that made the original stand out from the crowd was it’s cast. Well, believe it or not they’ve just made the cast list for the sequel even better…
The closing credits in the trailer say it all. “Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Norris, Crews, Couture, Hemsworth”. Then the next page continues with “also Van Damme, with Willis and Schwarzenegger”.
Yep, you did read that alright. And yes, that is Norris as in Chuck Norris.
Check out the scene with Schwarzenegger and Willis in the Smart car. Classic!
The Expendables 2 has a release date of the 17th August 2012 for Canada, the US and the UK, and a release date of the 30th August 2012 for Australia.
