Escape Plan Trailer Starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger


Although The Expendables and The Expendables 2 marked the first time that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone had appeared together in a feature film, Arnold’s screen time was fairly limited and the line-up was already pretty crowded. Escape Plan (formerly known as The Tomb) is a slightly different beast in that it is the first time that these two icons will co-headline a film together without a self-aware army of aging action stars surrounding them. That’s not to say there isn’t a decent supporting cast here, however, as the movie also co-stars Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Amy Ryan, Vinnie Jones and 50 Cent.

Directed by Mikael Hafstrom (1408, The Rite), the movie finds Stallone playing a security expert who is set up and thrown behind bars in a high-tech prison of his own design. He must team up with another convict (Schwarzenegger) to try and escape and seek revenge on those who put him there. While the premise does sound appealing to me, the first trailer comes across as a bit of a mess. Thrillers like this usually require a semi-decent script and something tells me this doesn’t have one. Escape Plan hits theatres on Oct. 18th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    Schwarzenegger can’t pull off the stache.

    I think he can. I like that look on him. Obviously not as cool as the scruffy beard in Kindergarten Cop but hey.. Looks like a bit of fun, I liked the vegetarian joke.

  • Film Junk Fan 15

    ehhhhh, this looks kinda bad

  • Jr

    I bet they make it out. I wish Rutger Hauer was the warden.

  • Stinker

    You hit like a vegie… Thats a one liner. And also it looks like a B-Movie from the early 90s, but with more moxie. Why not, pop the beer and spread the potato chips.

  • I liked it, too. Wish their hair color was natural, though.

    Arnie’s age is showin when he’s firing the machine gun at the end.
