The Expendables Trailer

Lionsgate has finally debut the first official trailer for Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables starring one hell of a badass cast: Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke and Danny Trejo, too. I do think that they spoiled the two or three big cameos in this, but there's no way this could be a hit without dropping the hint that this is Arnold's first big screen appearance since 2004. But that said, this does look totally awesome, exactly as I wanted, everything I expected. I've been excited for this from the beginning and have always been asked why? Well, this is why!

The story follows a team of mercenaries who head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.

The Expendables is both written and directed by legendary action actor and filmmaker Sylvester Stallone, who has also directed Paradise Alley, Rocky 2, 3, and 4, as well as the most recent Rambo movie. This is a Nu Image / Millennium Films production developed by Avi Lerner and Les Weldon. Lionsgate is bringing The Expendables to theaters starting on August 13th later this summer. We first featured a trailer for this back in October of last year but it got pulled, then the official trailer debuted back in March. Still excited?

    Love it! Man check out that cast! However... I really wish they didn't show the Arnold/Bruce cameo.
  • Xerxex
    S O L D!!!!!! Looks completely badass as #1 said.
  • birddog
    Looks like this is more brawns than brains...every action star known to man combined still won't make a good movie without a good story 1st.
  • TediusTed
    Looks like a great summer movie action flick!
  • Jaf
    I'm surprised my computer remained intact
  • cesking
    FUUUUCK!!!! jean claude fucked up big time with this movie! i dont get it WHY JEAN CLAUDE!? WHY?! WHY DID YOU DECLINE THE ROLL!?
  • D.
    Sorry 6# but pointless comment, look all this guys together in a movie so made for each of them. Man... every single one of them in on flick, perfect. only Better if it had Diesel. I'll watch this no matter what.
  • Quaked2023
    Wow... I know I'll watch this! Looks super badass!!!!
  • Nethanel
    @ 6 It doesn't look like it, IT IS. You are going to hate the film, that's all I got to say. Can't wait.
  • Trey M
    Yeah Vin Diesel should have been in this looks great
  • Quaked2023
    Wonder if this is what it'll feel like when The Avengers comes out?.... I so want to watch this!!!!
  • sickdoghats
    fuck yes!
  • Al
    This is what Predator was supposed to terms of cast. Can not wait.
  • ?
  • AC
    EPIC EPIC EPIC EPIC... i agree with #9, who in their right mind would ever turn down a roll in this movie!!
  • Carl
    What I don't get is Sly has wanted to to work with Jackie Chan for years ever since Demolition Man and this film would have been perfect if Jackie was in Jet's role. I've nothing against Jet Li he is a brilliant action star I just think it's a missed opportunity.
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Omg, this looks awesome! It's like all those action stars just came together to hang out and have fun in a ridiculous action movie. Amazing! I loved Arnold's little poke at Stallone's Rambo movies. xD
  • real talk
    all i can think of is: why?
  • Xerxex
    #21 why not?
  • chris
    saw this last month at a screening here in chatsworth ca. it was pretty badass. definitely going to see the final product this august
  • birddog
    @10 Learn to write comprehensive sentences so I can understand you. Pointless not really. Story always comes first.
  • Rick
    Looks amazing!
  • Cody w
    Still not sold because I havent seen a rating yet....if this is PG-13 ill wait for the DVD. This is a movie thats just gotta be R IMO.
  • Shouldn't Arnold be ruining California? Mercenaries are a bunch of tools who'll kill anyone for money, why should that be celebrated? Shootng unarmed civilians without consequence is funtimes...
  • Adam
    What song is playing at the end of this trailer!!!!!! This movie looks Redonk! So surprised the universe hasn't imploded!
  • Frightened Inmate #2
    ^^^ What a dope. It better be Rated R. I'm not much on Li or Austin, but I wanna see this regardless. Guess Chuck Norris was busy.
  • Diego
    @24 If story always comes first, why did Avatar made so much money? The story was complete garbage and a 6 year-old could have written something more creative. This film it's all about action and having a good time at the theater, enjoy it for what it is or just go watch something else 😉
  • tra la la la la di da
    UGH!!!! I shouldn't have watched it! I hate you Alex for not warning me better! I knew Arnold was in it, it's been mentioned long before but Willis!!!! SCORE!!!!!!! That was all it was missing, too bad he doesn't have a bigger part.
  • Daniel felts
    Stathams the best! Can't wait. JCVD should've, he could've, wish I could say he would've. Ima beseeing this one.
  • D.
    Birddog, Seems you got the point. Sorry about the sentence, no need for this part of the comment. But if you really looking for a good history try not to look at these actors.
  • Vold
    Looks awesome.
  • BoxOfficeZ
  • Felix
    This film will make all future games of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon a walk in the park.
  • Ezza
    I think it will be a predictable storyline. Lots of killing but in the end the good guys will prevail. No real twists. I think I'll wait until it comes to DVD.
  • ZzFDKzZ
    Damn bad ass!
  • Fred Schepsi
    Looks like kind of a version of The Magnificent Seven. Jason Statham as Yul Brenner! Lol. Still looks kick-ass though. I will waste $14 on this.
  • meatcarnage
    this looks awful.
  • Cody w
    Wow 27 wow...go to your political blog and gtfo seriously cant even believe you just said that, did you see them kill civilians no. If I saw it correctly they were actually trying to save them. Go away with your PCness and let us action moviegoers enjoy the awesomeness.
  • ImaginaryVisionary
    #27 Really? This isn't a PBS doc. Even if it was, it's got Stallone in it, what do you expect? He may be the only action star not to sell out and make kiddie movies. (ala The Rock and Vin Diesel.) Not that the world "needs" a good pointless action flick, but sure would be nice. I wasn't very old during Arnold, Van Damme, and Stallone's hay days, but I cant deny that I love me a good Jason Statham flick. I really wish JCVD would've been in this. It really would've put this over the top for me as something completely worth seeing just for nostalgic reasons...even if the movie sucked.
  • Cody, I'm not PC. I'm just saying that mercenaries answer to no-one and kill civilians. My friend was in the army and killed some civilians because in the first gulf war he was on acid in a tank, he had to answer for that, but a mercenary wouldn't. This film is like gay porn for action addicts. Not that I think your a homosexual Cody, I'm sure your all man.
  • Mr.Mr
    it stars randy couture twice?! say whhahhaaaaaa
  • beavis
    looks like a cliche-fest to me..........not to mention the plot/dialogue seems to be ripped straight out of a "B" action movie off of late-night cinemax. i guess if i've got nothing to do and it shows up on tv - i might watch it. sorry, but i just don't see this as anything remotely interesting.
  • WWF
    Looks as exciting as an old WWF cage match. (Which, btw, isn't exciting)
  • Mia
    Randy Couture is in it twice? Proofread! As for the movie it looks like it's going to be good for the demographic they're going after: those who want to see all these guys in a badass action movie and are willing to sacrifice good dialogue and plot.
  • David
  • Have Hope
    Guys, this is simply a guilty pleasure. Sick of women having their titanics, and twilights. Finally, something that guys can go and watch for the mere FUN and ENTERTAINMENT. I know what I am getting, and I hope I get TOO MUCH ACTION, GORE, BLOOD, VIOLENCE AND MASSIVE EGOS! 80'S ACTION MOVIES OWN LIVES! HH
  • mconner666
    Hell yeah! But why the fuck wasn't Terry Crews' name listed at the end, when a fuckin' fake wrestler and an MMA'er got there names listed. I originally thought it was going to be more over the top than what this trailer shows. Might actually see it in a theater.
  • Deckter
    @45 It stars Rambo, Terminator, Die Hard, The Transporter, Romeo Must Die, Universal Soldier and so on. What the fuck did u expect? A good drama? Maybe a sequel to A Beautiful Mind? An Oscar contender? Use common sense and start taking things for what they are. This is exactly what is expected from these guys....stupid dialogue, lot's of ass kicking and bullets flying. I don't wanna see 2 of my childhood heroes talking about the meaning of life...i wanna see them shootin' mofos. I didn't expect Titanic to be an action packed thriller, and i surely dind't complain about it.
  • Syphous
    So does anyone know the MPAA rating on this? I'm hoping for an R but am worried as all hell that it's PG-13.
  • Thirsty?
    Now THAT's sex!
  • Mega Jet Jaguar
    Did I read that right? Someone said that Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel are Sell-Outs because they starred in kiddie movies? Hello, McFly! These men are not real mercenaries or action heroes, they are ACTORS! That's what they do. LOL!
  • last son
    #9, He was too busy making that timeless classic "Universal Soldier 3". I totally agree with you. It was a bad move.
  • Stallone was a voice in Antz No sell out, no compromise. the $20million a film and well maybe a Planet Hollywood here or there "80'S ACTION MOVIES OWN LIVES!" Is the best quote ever. I think I might napalm some motherfuckers tonight and fire a bazooka with one hand whilst being shot at by the whole of Vietnam and then when the bullets run out I'll go in a toolshed and then rake the bastards to death then obviously I'll free all the POWs and get to that Chopppaaaaaaaaaaaaa and fly back to the base and be on some hero shit, just like it happens in real life. Obviously the lone kidnapped chick will be on my jock just in time for a kiss before the end credits and the emaciated POW's will laugh and pat me on the back. Cue soft rock... Roll credits.
  • Spider
    Holy crap! This is gonna kick major ass!! :)
  • Mark Drennan
    This. Looks. Awesome. I forgive Van Damme for being excluded, because at least Steven Segal is NOT included :)
  • kitano0
    Looks good, but not as good as I was hoping. Hate to be a wet blanket, but it really doesn't look that special. Definitely looking forward to it, though. Great cast, for sure. (Besides having all those bad-asses in there, Charisma Carpenter has a role, too!)
  • Jacob Crim
    A legit mindless action film! There hasnt been one of these in forever. I can not wait. I hope Jet Li does some serious hand to hand shit. My one problem is I hope the girl does not make some big stupid love story that is more important than explosions.
  • Rops
    MY GOVERNOR IS IN THIS MOVIE WOOOOO! That's all that matters.
  • True Blue Spider-man Fan
    Well go watch Brokeback Mountain #6 , and kiss my ass !!! This movie looks fucking awesome to anyone that grew up in the 80's and on 80's Action movies , All the non-queers will appreciate the hell outta this movie !!! NUFF SAID
  • Roderick
    YEA!!! Rambo and Friends!
  • movie mike
    sure the plot for this looks week.....but WHO THE HELL CARES! I didnt know that this much ass could be kicked in one sitting!
  • Kevin
    Stallone, Willis, and Schwarzenegger in one room... I think I died and went to the 80s. Actually, this looks awful... too bad.
  • Chris H.
    There must be a sequel. Arnold needs to get out of office and go back to acting full time so he can join the cast for real instead of just making a cameo appearance. It also looks like Bruce Willis will only be in briefly as well. The sequel must have the additional cast of some or all of the following: Chuck Norris Arnold Schwarzeneggar (full time) Bruce Willis (full time) Robert DeNiro Hulk Hogan (like him or not, he's still a classic hero character) Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino, 'nuff said) Mr. T (he's gotta be good for something other than World of Warcraft commercials) Harrison Ford Jean Claude Van Dam (he's gotta see te light sometime) Samuel L. Jackson Heck, I'd even accept Tom Cruise. He did Top Gun, The Outsiders, Days of Thunder, Mission Impossible (which is apparently getting another sequel), Valkyrie, Last Samurai, ... after his performance in Tropic Thunder I don't mind his scientology stuff so much anymore.
  • Superchyle
    # 66 what about Wesley Snipes? and they even could include Steven Segal as long as he dies early in the movie lol
  • cesar
  • var2apo
    It looks like old fashioned "Rambo" style fun.
  • Colt
    some of you need to stfu and enjoy action movies for what they are...ACTION MOVIES..... I really wish Kurt Russell had joined this!
  • Duir
    Was that some footage of Charisma in the trailer?! Sweet bastard!
  • Jimmy Love
    Looks like i might have to "stick around" to see this!
  • POS71
    Was there no room left for CHUCK NORRIS???
  • jojoe
    love the trailer who needs a story?above you all talked enough...
  • Nate
    I really hope this is as awesome as the action movies from the 80s :]
  • Donza
    Holy SHIT!!!! I think i just died and gone to heaven LOL... Wot a cast, Wot a fuckin great 80s action flick cant wait. WHY Vanne damme why didnt u take the god damme roll?
  • hell yeaahhhhhhh its been 76 comments already and almost all of you guys are excited for this one 😀 so the majority rule rules over "the need for a solid story in an action flick" 😀 (and i dont even understand why everything needs to have a story behind it, why cant anything just 'be' because it needs to 'be') i really dont understand those in need of "a story" as if everything in their lives has a story, has a reason has a meaning as if nothing is random and by chance or pointless this is AN ACTION FLICK and seems to deserve its place as a MILESTONE in all the ACTION FLICKS (sorry for the THIS IS SPARTAAAAAA-ish style 😛 the juices started to boil already :D) just imagine all those actors are taking even screen time blowing buildings out, gunning down bad guys, kicking the living sh!t out of them, poking eyes, pulling hair and at th end of all those lighting a cigar and drinking beer at their regular corner bar 😀 i will own this in blu-ray PS: i too have to point out my only concern, pls pls DONT KILL SUCH PROMISING TWO HOURS worth of time by releasing this PG-13.....children shouldnt watch violence anyway so please make this RATED R or even RATED RRR or else RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR we gotta let the berserkers in all us, fans, out... cheers
  • Jacob Crim
    I agree with #77 I am an avid movie watcher and the action genre really isnt my genre because it has sucked since the 80s. I love great stories and great acting, but when I go into a film like The Expendables I am not looking for a damn Oscar winner, I am looking for balls to the wall testosterone overload!
  • Jack Package
    I will see this no matter what, but i agree that it better be rated R...Stallone knows how to make a badass movie!
  • king
    cant fuckin wait til it comes out
  • Duane
    #49 Amen.... #50 A- to the motha-luvin Men....
  • Nada Nuff
    This looks great.
  • Jamie
    My computer moniter has started leaking testosterone after watching that.
  • too bad The A-Team Looks Way better.
  • Dan the Man
    As an avid 80 s' movies fan - this looks really terrible like they did back in the day - BUT I WOULD NOT HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY!!!!! Count me in! Cameos = Brialliant! - never realised how much I missed the governator! Bruce Willis is in this - nice! SS really have a vision and he will undoubtedly have a cult following - I dont expect Avatar-type figures, but I do hope and expect it will show decently!
  • ryderup
    The trailer bored me out. But It's a cool idea and hopefully I will have a blast in the theatre. Feels more like remake of Inglorious Basterds than QT film :) I dig Stallone and trust him!
  • dRailer
    They should go for a more family-friendly title. The Lunchables?
  • Robbie
    Omg, this cast is PERFECT! Terry Crews is an awesome actor, and errr everyone in this movie is lol.
  • jomba joose
    Looks like a GREAT popcorn flick... (nothing more nothing less). Cant wait to lose my mind for 90mins on this one. Perfect looking Homage to all those horribly great actions movies of the 80's most of these guys starred in!
  • lalo
    @66. I heard Van Damme turned down Stratham's part in this movie.
  • LifeLiquid
    @ #9 He wanted to be part of a movie with a good story bro, not everyone in Hollywood is in acting for the money I can assure you that this will suck, but I'd still check it out
  • Nick S.
  • Jacob Crim
    @#92 Yeah because after he did JCVD he thinks he is a legit actor LOL
  • Colt
    #92, oh really? you can assure me, that you know everyone's opinion and that everyone will think this sucks? Because surely you don't think the world is going to wait solely on your opinion? you can't be that ignorant.
  • Totally agree with #77 and #78 .. ITS AN ACTION MOVIE GUYS ..CMON..story not neccesary if you have all your childhood actions heros on the screen.. God damn it.. this will be the MOVIE!!! Juts want to see some great action sequences and acid jokes..thats all
  • JudasBarron
    In a word: AWESOME :) I must watch this movie! Too bad there's no Kurt Russell in it. Wouldn't mind seeing a Tango & Cash reunion (of sorts). Forest Whitaker and Van Damme (was supposed to be in it anyway) would be cool too.
  • Guy
    This looks amazing
  • Haley
    My stepdad dragged me to every Stallone, Arnold, Willis, Segal, etc. etc. movie that ever came out in the 80s and 90s. My mom never wanted to go with be brought me his daughter. It was our father/daughter bonding activities. When I saw the trailer for this movie I quickly sent him a link and told him about it. Needless to say I think this movie will be great. Plot? who cares. Its all about good old fashion old school good guys kick the bad guys @$$ movie. Gotta Love it. as for JCVD and Segal not being in the movie..who really needs them?
  • McQueen85
    *conscious again after passing out from my 80's induced adrenaline I thought were gone forever* Fucking WOW!!!!.....I mean......WOAH!!! I just hope for a sequel we'll get: Arnold Schwarzeneggar 😀 Bruce Willis 😛 Jean Claude Van Damme 😛 Jackie Chan 😛 Kurt Russell 😛 ....all as MAIN characters, not some mini guest role!
  • McQueen85
    Oh, and I shouldn't forget Wesley Snipes. He can play the villain who wants money, power & respect... He won't survive, ultimately bags of money falls out of a helicopter and he jumps out trying to save it all...
  • Go Dee
    My eyes just grew some pubes from watching this.
  • predanator
    SOLD!!!! I can't wait. here's a thought. Maybe Jackie, Chuck, The Rock, and Snipes is on Arnolds mercenary team and that's why they don't get along. After all, Arnolds team is a just a rescue team.
  • this is the third time i watched this trailer today and it made me comment once more 😀 this trailer is so sweet, it made my teeth ache 😀 cant waittttttt for the whole pack :)
  • Fisherr
    Action packed movie with action packed heroes to the bones.
  • arjones
    I take offense 49 because i hated Titanic AND Twilight. Twilight especially because i read the books and they equally suck along with the movie. this movie looks like a good time to be had by all.
  • Chris
    After seeing this trailer, I ran outside an kicked the Sh** out of 5 guys!! This is movie is going to rip down the theaters!! Woo, love the cast. Jet Li rules!
  • eye_of_the_storm
    HANDS DOWN i think i might've seen about all top action stars, i gotta say that i was outdone when i saw jet Li the top martial arts star n bruce willis the star of the die hard hard franchise i agree wit 1 of u guys who said that this has 2 be a rated r flick n another 1 said , if this movie gonna suck than the director needs 2 be FIRED no excuses wit all these stars im tellin u this movie better have me on the edge of my seat cuz im goin 2 the show when it hits the big screen just hopin it has a cold ass storyline
  • lando
    wow, looks like some old school violent fun!!! im in.
  • jilos
    My eyes just grew some pubes from watching this. :))
  • Chase
    Awesome, I was expecting a cheesefest with all the known actors, but this trailer definetly turned me, the movie looks good. Way better than that b-grade A team commercial, but hey thats just me. I'll defenitely be seeing this.
  • Ostilad
    I need me an 80's R-rated style type of action movie at least once a year. I need to see explosions. No amicable solutions to differences. I need guns to become characters in movies again like Rambo and Terminator. I need cheesy dialogue. I need Stallone to put up a movie studio that bring adult action to the screens on the regular. Enough with this PG-13 crap. Thank you Stallone. May you have many more years.
  • McQueen85
    @Ostilad, that's easily the best comment I've heard so far!
  • Cody M
    This trailer makes me want to start a bar fight in a biker bar. Pure awesomeness. My testosterone alone might get my wife pregnant again.
  • Johnny B
    Its missing (as far as I know) Mr. T., Kurt Russel, Russel Crowe, and of course, the best action man of all, Bolo Yeung. With these people, Bolo in particualr, it would be a 5 star movie
  • An incredible cast, even Jean-Claude Van Damme was offered a role, but he turned it down. Wesley Snipes was offered the role of Hale Ceasar, he couldn't accept it because he wasn't allowed to leave the United States due to tax issues. Also Steven Seagal, Ben Kingsley and even Sandra Bullock were rumored to have been offered roles in the film.
  • Billy Jack
    Where the fuck is Chuck ???????
  • Billy Jack
    With out Chuck Norris this is not Expendable
  • U.G.T.F.O.
    it's for fact that it will be released rated-R !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Middo
    Really looking forward to this nostalgia trip. What a shame they all couldn't agree to make it 15-20 years ago when Stallone/Willis/Schwarzenegger were all in their prime. Guess the egos have softened a little.
  • Pointer
    "What's wrong with this picture?" "Everything," says Jason Statham If the editor felt that was necessary, I ain't looking forward to much
  • porn-m
    hehehe rambo :) saw this last month at a screening here in chatsworth ca. it was pretty badass. definitely going to see the final product this august
  • Annie
    Incredible!!!!! This looks amazing and Stallone is a genius. Great cast, sure to be a great movie!
  • tony2001
    An action party's not a party without: 1) Jean Claude Van Dam 2) The Rock 3) Steven Segal 4) Kurt Russell 5) Wesley Snipes 6) Jesse 'The Body' Ventura That's all i can think of right now...
