A promo trailer for The Expendables has leaked. I’ve seen it, like Jay, with my eyes, and I like what I saw. A bit clunky here and there with the sound and coloring not quite in place, but that is understandable as it’s just a promo reel intended for distributors after all. All the finishing touches that will make it all smooth and awesome are yet to be done. But apart from that, the essence of it is awesome. The promo is filled to the rim with cheese – intended even – and it reeks of 1990, so it couldn’t be any better.
The promo shows just about all of the major cast, though I am disappointed with the little time that is spent with Dolph Lundgren, who is looking especially bad ass when finally seen. The only bad thing I have to say about the trailer is Jet Li, who just seems out of place. I hope Lundgren’s character ends up killing him. Even Batista from Dexter is looking good, which is the biggest surprise of all. In the end, I am satisfied, although not all that impressed (again, understandable at this stage), but my faith in the movie is growing. This is going to be b-movie madness on a triple A budget. Check out the trailer after the jump.
