Bootleg: First Look at The Expendables

The Expendables

It would certainly appear that The Expendables is going to be everyone’s guilty pleasure next year. I mean, how could it not be? It has every action hero you have ever loved, especially if you were born in the 1980, and could potentially be a nostalgia machine. I also don’t need to express the awesomeness that is Dolph Lundgren. So far, we have had plenty of pictures and cast news come from the movie to wet our collective palette, but we have yet to have any actual video. Now that changes. Read the rest of this entry »

Bruce Willis is Expendable

Willis - Expendables

(Photoshop!)

After a few months of rumor, it appears that The Expendables, which already features Sylvester Stalone, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham et. al., will be adding yet another action superstar to its already impressive roster: Bruce Willis. From MTV:

The Die Hard star confirmed to MTV News that he is leaving time open on his schedule to shoot a cameo for The Expendables, the ultra-violent, star-studded action flick written/directed by and starring Sylvester Stallone. Sly is currently putting the finishing touches on the movie…Willis said that the he will soon join Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger to shoot a very special scene for the flick.

“Not yet, I haven’t united with them,” said Willis. “I’m waiting for a call from Sly about when we’re going to try and make that happen.”

Frankly, I don’t know why Willis wasn’t attached to the project from the beginning. Like Schwarzenegger and Stalone, Willis is an action hero emeritus, bringing us one of the most memorable characters in cinema history as John McClaine, but it is understandable that he would have scheduling conflicts with Kevin Smith’s A Couple of Dicks. This is one of my biggest hopes for next year and hopefully it will have a brain unlike this summer’s list of blockbusters.





Photo Dump: Dolph Lundgren in The Expendables

(This is not from The Expendables, but it helps enforce a point)

Dolph “I Will Break You” Lundgren is one of my favorite people of all time.

You may now be asking yourself, what is so great about Dolph Lundgren? He is just a Swedish B-movie actor who was in Rocky IV. Who cares? The problem with this thought, though, is that you are totally underselling a guy who is simply one of the most interesting people on the planet.

The Expendables

If action films are a drug, than the cast of the upcoming film The Expendables should make for a peyote trip through the desert followed up by three hits of extasy. For those that are unaware, the film, written, directed and starring Sly Stallone, boasts Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Micky Rourke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Eric Roberts, Terry Crewes, Steve Austin and Randy Couture. I’ll let that soak in for a moment…

Okay, hopefully we have regained consciousness and can now continue. Six new photos have popped up showing everyone what action stars to best: shoot, plan, threaten, drive, plan some more and…get tattoos from Mickey Rourke. Check them out after the jump.
