Official Trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables Starring Jason Statham and Jet Li


Although an early promo reel has been floating around online since last year, we hadn’t seen an official trailer for Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables until today. Yahoo! just released the first full trailer and it looks exactly like you’d expect it to: dirty, sweaty, and full of muscled men. Stallone has assembled a pretty impressive cast of action stars for this flick including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, and Danny Trejo plus cameos from Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Although I don’t fully understand what the story is about (something about overthrowing a South American dictator) and I’m a little worried that it could over-complicate things slightly, the trailer still looks like a lot of fun and a definite return to the days when action movies had a lot of explosions, real stunts, and no CG or bullet time. What do you think, will Sly deliver the goods, or is this just a failed attempt to relive his glory days? The Expendables hits theatres on August 13th; check out the trailer after the jump.

  • 4 and a half muscled men.

  • All I need to see is the cast list to know that I will be there opening night.

  • This makes me remember back when action stars actually had personalities, I’m talking to you Tatum and Worthington. Here’s to Sly, bringing back real action instead of CGI bullshit.

  • that is macho overdose – I got chest hair from just watching the trailer!

  • Nate

    Dude, that scene between Sly, Arnold and Bruce is alone worth the price of admission.


  • TheNazgul

    Who needs oscar worthy acting/writing/directing!

    all you need is a movie that blows shit up and staring some of the toughest guys in hollywood!

    reminds me of the days of Cobra/Commando!

    I’ll be the first one in the cinema to watch this carnage.

  • Napalm

    Boner alert!


  • SirPrize

    The cast is a dream come true. Pitty Schwarzenegger and Willis only did cameos!

  • Matt

    I just got five boners.

  • Niklas


  • Chris

    That just gave me a stiffy….

  • Matt in Maine

    I’m thinking Statham will actually do a decent job at acting in this film. Anyways, I’m really excited to see it!

  • fatbologna

    My boner’s veins became so engorged that they turned into a whole bunch of sentient boners that proceeded to punch me in the face ultra fast like a speedbag.

    This looks real good.

  • Mike

    why is it ok that a bunch of buff guys gave all you guys boners?

  • cuz while watching this shit we imagine our selves on the big screen tattooed and muscular saving the world then shagging the hot Chick at the end? ,,Thus giving us a totally normal not Gay Bonner?

  • Mike

    The only normal not gay Bonner i know of.

    now when it comes to boners…ya that’s gay.

  • Henrik

    Holy shit it’s Arnold fucking Schwarzenegger

  • Primal

    Arnold, Bruce, and Sly together in a church no less. Praise the lord.

  • That whole trailer seemed like a mess.
    Although I am excited.

  • Little Tony

    I came bukkets.

  • Good God, this looks awesome. I cannot wait to see it.

  • drewsifer

    I got a gay boner from this trailer. I havn’t heard talks about a trailer giving people boners since the trailer for Toy Story 3 came out.

  • Nuno

    I wonder if Stallone’s a fan of Dexter or if it’s juts coincidence that the actress who plays Rita was in Rambo and the actor that plays Angel Baptista looks to be one of the South American baddies in this.

  • patrik

    Nuno- didn´t really think about it but yeah that seems strange. Good taste if that´s the case though. I wish Julie Benz was in this.. Anyway the more I watch it, the more I want a new Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie

  • Tomoo

    @ Nuno

    I’m not sure if I can see Julie Benz in a movie again after she was in Boondock Saints 2. My god that accent still haunts my dreams.

  • Derek

    This is gonna be a lotta fun!
    Feels like some kinda 80’s action star reunion.
    And with Sly directing…(after watching the latest Rambo) I’m fuckin there!

  • Nick Robertson

    See, it’s not that hard to make good movies is it? Why the fuck can’t they do it anymore? Everything has to be sold to 13 year old girls, young hot conan!? Cunts.

  • Ray

    total nostalgia fest, I love it
