At the dawn of the full trailer for the action ensemble sequel, The Expendables 2
, here’s 30-second ass-kickin’ teaser excitedly introduced by Terry Crews
You know you’ve got to have a trailer for a trailer now, son,
Crews yells, before announcing that a full trailer will be issued today at 10 a.m.
Teaser trailers appear to be becoming a more popular promotion method for films, with movies like The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, and The Dark Knight Rises; now it’s The Expendables 2 turn.
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time – six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.
If you had fun watching the first movie, this sequel should be even better. Simon West-directed actioner opens in theaters on August 17th, 2012.
