The Expendables2 SR Pick [Video]: The Expendables: Call To Arms Trailer

Those that were mercilessly forced against their will into seeing Eclipse – or those lured to see it under the pretense that it was an action-packed vampire vs. werewolf romp and not, well, just another Twilight movie – will have the chance to get their revenge when The Expendables arrives this August.

Between stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Mickey Rourke, and Steve Austin, The Expendables will be crammed full with more brawny ego and steroid-enhanced muscle than your average Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding Contest.

Add several tons of practical FX and a Bruce Willis/Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo – along with more one-liners than either of those two could handle on their own – and you have what many moviegoers hope will be the end-all of action movie throwback flicks.

But will that be enough to get the explosion-loving fanboys off their laptops and into their local multiplex?  Could the Oprah-approved Eat, Pray, Love dominate The Expendables during its opening weekend?  Could no-holds-barred action blockbusters become a thing of the past?

Well, apparently some bloke with a Youtube account is worried that might be the case, so he assembled a “Call to Arms” trailer for The Expendables (which you can check out below) as a means of uniting the action-adoring masses in the face of financially successful chick flicks.

(NOTE: There is a bit of NSFW text at the end of this video so be careful who’s standing over your shoulder when you watch it).

All jokes aside, this is a surprisingly entertaining trailer remix.  The rocking music soundtrack is fitting and the clip as a whole is well edited and put together; it even strikes the right kind of humorous tone to remind those who are watching not to take it too seriously – or seriously at all, for that matter.

Besides, how many of you ever thought you would see Jason Statham riding a jet and Kristen Stewart pouting out in the woods in the same video? icon wink SR Pick [Video]: The Expendables: Call To Arms Trailer

The Expendables will explode into regular theaters in the U.S. on August 13th, 2010.

  1. can hardly wait

  2. I like the bigger message in the movie. What happened to GUYS/MEN in movies? It’s all rom coms. Vin Diesel goes from Pitch Black to Pacifier. Gerald Butler goes from 300 to The Bounty Hunter. The Rock goes from Rundown to a Disney flick, the name of which escapes me. We saw this in the 80′s, but it was not as frequent and not as degrading (Jingle All The Way wasn’t that bad :))

    But we have Predators and Expandables coming out so hopefully us men can get some of our dignity back.

  3. It would be Li not Jet….. :D Yeah I concur Ogb at least Arnold waited until he was comfortable doing both…. ;)

  4. after watching the featurette which showed a guy getting ripped in half then flown acr5oss a room, i’m sold :)
    fingers crossed this makes a boat load, so they make a sequel which will hopefully have arnie as the bad guy (seeing as how he’s almost up, it would suit perfectly – he has a yr or so to get back into shape)

  5. i’m close to finishing a mash up of the expendables posters, i’ll see if i can post it up when its 100% complete.

  6. Ogb I think jingle all the way was a poor example for you Arnold has been in far worse and far more degrading of films. Twins ? Or how about the one where he is pregnant ? Do we remember that god awful film. I’m by no means an Arnold fan but those films make the rest of his stuff look great. In fact those to were so bad that they don’t deserve to be called films.

    I say bring on the expendables. Stallone has been hitting the mark with action packed films with substance for a long time now I have faith. Stallone has always delivered more substance in his movies than Arnold. Plus Ill go see it just for the Bruce Willia cameo. Wish he could of got a bigger part and It would of been nice to see JCVD make the movie he really impressed me with his self titled film it was brilliant and the opening fight scene was amazing all in one take one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    • jcvd is kicking himself for saying no to sly i bet, he doesnt realize the fun he’d have had filming with all these guys. i hope that when the blu-ray/dv d comes out, it has some cool stuff on it showing all that too.

      • JCVD is suck an idiot, i mean he had no reason to say no, cause either way he would have gotten paid, and his name would still be alive.
        that being said he isn’t as talented as he once was (and he’s at least 10yrs younger then sly. not to mention he had insane fighting skills and a mad body) just watch universal solider 3 and you’ll know what i’m talking about.

        that being said it would be cool if he and seagal showed up in a sequel :D

        • im over van-damnaged. segal would mop him up without breaking a sweat lol

          • anthony…just no

            Van Damme is actually fighting in a real Muay Thai fight (except no elbows) against a Thai Olympic boxer (1996 I believe) later this year. He’s obviously keeping in shape.

            Same can’t be said about Seagal.

            • ob, just yes, my opinion stands, as does urs im sure. thanks

              • Okay, be stubborn. The evidence is there to show otherwise. But okay, if your so set on being right, then sure, your opinion “stands”.

                • hey daniel, another bad example of an anrie movie is Hercules in New York……

  7. I was searching for this video on YouTube and came across a hilarious video with the expendables trailers sound synced up with a bunch of cartoons. It made it appear as if the cartoons were the expendables… Hilarious

    featured Shrek, Toy Story, Despicable me and others.

    I recomend you watch it. Gets better as it goes on especially when they are doing the big action scenes to the hard rock music lol.

    • next time, if thier is a next time, stallone should give an invite to jeff speakman

      • Is he still alive? Haven’t heard that name since I ate Count Chocula cereal.

  8. Yea that was bad Anthony but I think we were mostly talking about his non big action films because it was about guys doing big action movies and switching to family stuff or rom coms.
