The new full trailer for "The Expendables 2" has arrived and it features about everything an action fanatic would want: explosions, gun fights, and the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Oh yeah, and there's Jean-Claude Van Damme and he's playing a terrorist who wants to change the balance of the world by stealing 5 tons of plutonium. Destined to sweep at the next Spike's Guys Choice Awards, the film has Sylvester Stallone returning as Barney Ross, the leader of the infamous crew of mercenaries. It turns out, Ross and company have gotten themselves in a dicey mission where they will require the help of some new blood (Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan) and some old blood as well (Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis). Look for the film to explode in theaters starting August 17th.
The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck 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. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....
