Today we have a batch of new images from Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming muscle-man-packed action flick, The Expendables. For most action fans, the film had them at the casting of Jason Statham, Jet Li and Stallone – and then the cast was expanded to include the likes of Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Eric Roberts (even Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to make a cameo appearance) to ramp up the awesomeness even more.

Don’t worry, ladies, the XX chromosome is being represented too, in the form of Charisma Carpenter and Brittany Murphy.

What do you mean, “This is a guy’s movie”? I find that offensive and sexist…


The new Expendables images come to us by way of a site called Ethelmae’s Blog, via a tip from a Joblo reader called “Jorgen.” Some of the images are behind the scenes (i.e. not straight stills) and only a couple of images show the action the film promises (funnily enough those ones don’t involve Stallone or Statham). Nonetheless, it’s awesome to see this gang of actors together. The first image in particular is pretty exciting, check them out below:


The Expendables are about to shoot a scene

"Aim for that window over there..."

Sly's done this so much now it just tickles...

"How's this look, Sly?"

Jet Li looking madder than ever

Eric Roberts look badass


With the amount of muscle power The Expendables has, it’s no wonder it’s on most action movie fan’s most anticipated list. Not only does what we’ve seen so far promise some serious kick-ass action, but the cast that’s been brought together is insane: We have the likes of Stallone, Rourke and Lundgren for those fans of action from 20-30 years ago, and the likes of Statham and Li to appease the modern action moviegoer.

(And Thank goodness Terry Crews was also brought in to replace Curtist “50 Cent” Jackson…)

The above pics are cool (particularly the one of Rourke giving Stallone a tattoo), but the movie already has my money. I’m gonna’ be eagerly in line for The Expendables when it gets released in theaters. How about you?

What do you think about these latest pics from The Expandables, are you looking forward to the movie? Either way let us know below.

The Expendables is scheduled to hit theatres on April 23rd, 2010.
