Look at that. Just look at it! If you have ever enjoyed a movie starring men known for grimaces, muscles, and explosions, then take a gander at the trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s newest film, The Expendables, which comes out in August.
I’ve been known to employ my fair share of hyperbole in the past and this film may end up being awful, but look at the lineup. In this flick, you get Sly, that other Handsome Rob, Jason Statham, the supposedly “retired” Jet Li, Mickey Rourke and a wealth of burly dudes with awesome facial hair-growing abilities, as well as a plot about overthrowing an over-the-top island dictator, played by Dexter’s David Zayas.
Plus, oh yes, the first ever on-screen meeting of the three ’80s action heroes: Stallone, Arnold, and Bruce Willis. That’s right. Rambo, the Terminator, and John McClane are in the same room. It’s just a cameo, but it’s so manly it makes me want to grill a steak and lift weights even more than I already do.
So, come August, I’ll be first in line to get my fill of brawn and bombs.
