Plenty of Jokes & Explosions in New TV Spot for 'The Expendables 2'
"You're terminated." Ah, yes, it's been awhile since we had some meta jokes referencing the previous films of Arnold Schwarzenegger from a film in which he himself is starring. There's like plenty more in store when The Expendables 2 hits theaters later this summer, but for now you're going to have to settle for a couple new ones in this one-minute TV spot with plenty of action, and a rundown of all the veteran action stars in this film (and a couple younger ones too) in case you forgot that Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Schwarzenegger were teaming up for the first time to take down Jean Claude Van Damme.
Watch the first TV spot for Simon West's The Expendables 2, via Deadline:
Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should've been an easy job, but when one of their men is murdered, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
The Expendables 2 is directed by British filmmaker Simon West, of movies like Con Air, The General's Daughter, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Purple Mountain and The Mechanic previously. The screenplay was written by Sylvester Stallone, who directed the first one but not this one. Lionsgate is releasing Expendables 2 from Millennium Films / Nu Image starting on August 17th later this summer. You in for this one!?
