In the age of Batman, Spider-Man, Iron Man and just about every _____-Man movie imaginable, The Expendables 2 is a throwback. There’s no superpowers in this movie, just average joes armed with every type of military weapon imaginable. And boy oh boy, are these weapons on display in the film’s first TV spot. Like the first Expendables, this features just about every action star that’s ever lived, plus some relative newcomers like Randy Couture and Liam Hemsworth. We’d share the plot with you, but really, who cares? Just enjoy the spot and watch a lot of stuff blow up in the most epically awesome way possible.
. The Expendables 2 opens August 17th, 2012. .
Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time – six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….
