A new trailer has been released for Sylvester Stallone’s latest action flick, The Expendables and surprisingly it’s a lot shorter than the first one. It plays more like a teaser and shows barely any footage but what it lacks in story it makes up for in heavy handed marketing. The people behind this movie really want you to know that this is an action epic…
The Expendables stars Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Oscar nominee Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, oh yeah and The Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. The last two actors actually make cameo appearances in the film and don’t have real roles yet they get top billing in the trailer? It doesn’t make sense but we guess they’re trying to capitalize on the name and face recognition.
Another interesting promo tool they used are clips of cliched action dialogue and taglines. You have to see this movie because it has the “Greatest Action Stars of All Time!” Even though this is one of our must sees for the summer, this trailer is a disappointment. Come on guys, step it up.
The Expendables hits theaters on August 13, 2010.
