This is the kind of trailer that makes you high five the person next to you. Sylvester Stallone’s next film (as actor/writer/director) has him showcasing the manly manliness and ’80s excess of old school and current tough guys shooting and blowing stuff up. Look at that cast! It’s such an impressive line-up that the poster will just be a collection of surnames. Stallone. Lundgren. Rourke. Statham. Li. Willis. Schwarzenegger. And the character names are even better: Lee Christmas, Yin Yang, Hale Caesar, Paine and more. The Expendables unleashes its unapologetic over the top action in August.
