This is the official movie trailer of The Expendables starring Sylvester Stallone,
Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. An all-star action movie cast officially releasing on August 13, 2010.


The Expendables is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things arent quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as removing those hard to get at stains. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Jet Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture), a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.

Movie Critics preview: - The famed trio is probably together for only one scene, but even in 2010 there's something exciting about watching Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and current California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on screen together. Part 80s nostalgia, part curiosity over why Willis and Schwarzenegger agreed, it's also a huge opportunity for Lionsgate to create some buzz about Stallone's upcoming old school action flick "The Expendables." Smart move.

If you don't like your action heros over 50, Stallone hasn't made the picture just for the geriatric set. Younger movie fans (like, guys in their 20s) should get off on seeing Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin along for the ride too. As for everyone else? Well, there's always Dolph Lundgren and Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke. There also appears to be some sort of plot involving South America, beautiful women and possibly the drug trade, but does it really matter when Sly and his crew are kickin' butt? No, we didn't think so either. Check out the new trailer for "The Expendables" below and judge for your self.
