Empire - The Expendables

We usually feature the occasional Empire magazine cover because they often score some awesome exclusive photos for their covers, but they haven't had anything great in a while (until today!). Empire has debuted two brand new covers for their newest issue - one is for The A-Team, the other is for The Expendables, as part of their "Ultimate Action Special." Damnit, why don't I have a subscription to this magazine yet? (Oh right, because they're from the UK, and it costs a lot!) We've already seen trailers for both The A-Team and The Expendables, so we already know what to expect for both, but these are still cool to see. Check ’em out!

"So you're going to have to choose: do you prefer your rock-hard warriors to be disgraced soldiers or the world's best mercenaries? Should they be on the run from the authorities or set up by a dodgy employer? Should they be firing on planes from a mid-air tank or firing at tanks from a mid-air plane?" I'm actually really loving the competitiveness of all the big action team-up movies this year, it's fun to see them fighting for attention. Empire has a preview of both issues online, which contain a lot of great content that isn't even online yet, so check ’em out! Which of these two movies are you looking forward to seeing more?

    Two things: what the hell kinda gun is Jet Li holding? It's like a swiss army machinegun Also, group leaders always seem to be signified by cigars (although I can't remember if Franklin Clay likes em)

    Fuck the A-team.

    Expendables. It's an original idea!

    Yeah as long as Expendables is R, Im totally there over A-team.
  • Xerxex
    The Losers left a bad taste in my mouth, and the A-Team dosen't seem like its gonna wo me, so The Expendables is where I'm gonna be.

    Expendables kicks the A-Teams ass any day.

    Expendables: Nostalgic Starpower... A-Team: Iconic, Nostalgic Franchise. My edge goes to the A-team simply because you could cast & plug anybody perfectly into those updated roles and I'd still see it for nostaligia's sake. Expendables, to me is a little more of a tongue-in-cheek throw back to ALLLLLL of those 80's icons that we love. ...and frankly I wouldnt see the expendables without them. And no, I'm not expecting the Dark Knight and I look forward to BOTH. So Dream team or NBA, take your pick 😀 (Kinda iffy about the late summer/ fall release tho. Those dont really signify a lot of studio confidence)

    Just the fact that the trailer starts out with a meeting with the HOLY TRINITY OF WHUPASS...AHNOLD,BRUCE,SLY has me eager to pray in the church of pain. Expendables baby!!

    Stallone knows how to do 'R,' just think RAMBO. Bloodiest movie ever.
  • I think the expendables would kill them, while the A-Team would just shoot at the ground around them. 😀
  • last son
    The Expendables wins hands down! The A-Team has no chance here.
