First trailer for The Expendables 2

The boys are back in town

 

Lionsgate has released the first official teaser trailer for The Expendables 2, and every member of its musclebound cast gets a look in, if only for a second.

Clocking in at exactly one minute, the new trailer isn’t overburdened with either action or exposition, but what it does show is Bruce Willis’s character calling in a long-standing favour with old pal Sly Stallone.

Take a look at the new trailer here…



As well as the trailer, Lionsgate have also released an official synopsis which sheds a little more light on what we can expect this time around.

“[The team] are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job,” explains the press blurb. “The task looks like an easy paycheque 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.”

To be honest, we just find exciting to see Arnold Schwarzenegger firing a big old gun again! One strange thing though… why “Also Van Damme”? It might just be the first time we’ve ever seen that credit! The Expendables 2 opens in the US on 17 August 2012.


Will this be a bigger, better slice of Expendables action? Tell us, below.

      So much testosterone... My flatmate and I used to joke about a movie like this back in the early nineties, now it's here (again). Stoked to see Norris, but sad to see Li die (I suspect it's him that will bite the dust, seeing as he's the only one not in fighting gear). Bring in Donnie Yen in the next movie!

      I miss the 90's, so many childhood memories of watching Rocky, Bloodsport and Commando.
