The Expendables trailer is finally here, and I gotta say, it looks much better than the promo trailer that leaked onto the Internet a few months back.
This new trailer delivers exactly what The Expendables has promised: a bunch of action stars doing what they do best. There's even a very special scene featuring three of the genre's greatest together onscreen for the very first time. Classic stuff.
As for the the film itself? The Expendables never claimed to be the greatest movie ever - just one kick ass action movie on steroids. And it looks like that's exactly what we'll be getting.
If you don't know what the film is about:
THE EXPENDABLES is a hard-hitting action/thriller about a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Once the mission begins, the men realize things aren't quite as they appear, finding themselves caught in a dangerous web of deceit and betrayal. With their mission thwarted and an innocent life in danger, the men struggle with an even tougher challenge - one that threatens to destroy this band of brothers.
Here's The Expendables trailer, see if you can spot all the action stars:

I guess it's no secret (at least around these parts) that Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have cameos in The Expendables, but still, I almost wish they'd left that scene out.
I also think this trailer tried too hard to get deep into "the story" of the film, at the expense of showing us more detailed clips of each action star in the ensemble. They really could've just shown us a clip of each tough guy with their name in big red letters and been just as (if not more) effective at getting us excited.
To be honest though, I'm still really looking forward to this film - it looks like a pretty fun way to end the Summer 2010 blockbuster season.
The Expendables will be in theaters on August 13, 2010. If you couldn't keep count, the movie features Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Steve Austin, David Zayas and Mickey Rourke.
