sly First Behind The Scenes Video Of The Expendables

Although we’ve had a few looks at Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming action flick The Expendables, it’s only been in pic form so far. As awesome as those images have looked, with a couple in particular being extra-awesome because of Stallone showing off that he’s still got it at age 62 (can you believe it?!), it’s always a little cooler to see things actually in action.

Today we have the first ever video footage of The Expendables, a behind-the-scenes look at Stallone directing what looks like a gun pointing and tough-guy dialogue sequence, along with the filming of an explosion involving Stone Cold Steve Austin, and a little of Stallone greeting some screaming fans. It’s not a heck of a lot, but as I said it’s always cool to see things in motion:

This may just be the avid movie fan in me speaking, but it’s always amazes me the difference between the look of a scene being shot, and the actual finished product within the movie itself. What they are able to do to make it all look extremely cool on film always amazes me.

But I digress…

The Expendables is a project that has me more and more excited every single time a new piece of info, image or whatever else drops about it. The casting front is where most of the news has focused, with more and more tough guys being added to the already huge cast. I have said it before but it bears repeating – I just wonder if this size of a cast is going to work, or if it will divert focus from some of the people we are most interested in, namely Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Jet Li and, of course, Stallone himself.

I’m sure a lot of the cast won’t have that much screen time, but something tells me they’ll be pivotal to the story nonetheless…

I’m sure this won’t be the last behind-the-scenes video that we’ll see, and Screen Rant will be sure to keep you up-to-date with anything else about The Expendables that gets released.

For now, what do you make of this behind-the-scenes look at this action-fest? Are you looking forward to the movie?

The Expendables is scheduled to be released on April 23rd, 2010.

  1. haha, Stone Cold still runs as if he is running down the ramp on RAW to give the stunner to McMahon!

  2. This’ll be fun. I actually can’t wait to see it. One thing is that Stallone gives me hope that I can still be buff when I’m his age….if I’m willing to go through the exercise part, but I have hope that it can be done.

  3. That looks so rad. I hope Jet Li has a decent part it in because he is, most definitely, my favorite name in the bunch. He cannot star in enough movies.

  4. Woah! That’s Sex!!!

    Interesting wording Sly, I can’t wait for this movie, this is definately going to be the must see movie when it comes out next year.

  5. Sly has some pretty bad posture and grip when it comes to shooting… :-P

    Hey, if Steve Austin does the Stunner to someone in the movie, that will be hilarious, I hope they do it. I also wonder what part Jet Li will have…
