Is it 1985? No! It’s The Expendables!

Stallone is bringing it like it’s 1985 with his new homage to 80′s action flicks, The Expendables.  Here’s the awesomely ridiculous extended trailer of machismo.

Watch it. Love it. I’m going to do me some sit ups.

The Expendables is currently slated to hit theaters on August 20, 2010.

New Badass Expendables Pictures Appear!

More badass photos from Stallone’s The Expendables makes me want to immediately start doing crunches in my cubicle.  Can I fit a weight set in there?

The Expendables is pretty close to wrapping principle photography and the images we’ve been getting have been awesome.  80′s macho heavy weights like Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren team up with a handful of other machismo actors like Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham and Eric Roberts.  Van Damme, what did you turn a role down in this?!?!?! There are even rumors of Schwarzenegger making an appearance.

Here are the pics.  The Expendables is scheduled to hit theatres on April 23rd, 2010.

Awesome New Photo From Stallone’s Expendables

Sylvester Stallone is plugging away at his action opus The Expendables with a smorgasbord of B-list action stars (“Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Dolph Lungren, Eric Roberts, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke just to name a handful).  I’m really looking forward to a resurgence of dumb fun action, and The Expendables looks really promising (sans the PG-13 rating).

Here’s a new photo of Sly Stallone attempting to board a sea plane.

Gasp! Cardiologist Says Crank 2 Is Unrealistic.

crank2

In todays “No Shit” segment, a Cardiologist has ruled Crank 2 as unrealistic.

For the uninitiated, here’s the plot synopsis:

Chev Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working.

Stallone Talks Expendables and First Look at Set Pics

I’m a big fan of dumb 80s action flicks.  Sylvester Stallone has just began filming The Expendables he’s touting it as “…a 1980s movie with today’s technology.” I’m really looking forward to this flick (even though it’s going to be a PG-13 action flick).  The Expendables is starring, written, directed and produced by Sly himself.

The other actors involved are: Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Giselle Itié, Charisma Carpenter, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Eric Roberts, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and Jet Li.

Collider was able to make it to a Press Conference, head over there to read what Sly has to say about the flick.  Also, Spoilertv has pictures from the first day of shooting.  You can see a few of them above.  Stallone is one ripped old dude.  Makes me want to head to the gym.

Movie Review: Death Race

Death Race

Rating: ★★★★☆ 


Directed By: Paul W.S. Anderson

Starring: Jason Statham, Tyrese Gibson and Joan Allen

Plot Synopsis:

Jason Statham leads the cast of an action-thriller set in the post-industrial wasteland of tomorrow, with the world’s most brutal sporting event as its backdrop. A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the Death Race.

Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames (Statham) is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn’t commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein — a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill — Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s warden (Joan Allen): suit up or rot away in a cell.

His face hidden by a metallic mask, one convict will be put through an insane three-day challenge. Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals in the country’s toughest prison to claim the prize of freedom. Driving a monster car outfitted with machine guns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers, one desperate man will destroy anything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth

Review:

Based on the 1975 Roger Corman Classic Death Race 2000 starring David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone, Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Death Race is a brainless action flick involving cars, guns and gratuitous violence. Not a bad way to spend an hour and a half!
