The Expendables are blasting back into theaters soon, so it’s time to take a look back at the geriatric action film that started it all!
He’s going to get his ass beat spectacularly.
He’s like a British James Bond.
Watch one of the finest offerings of British cinema and open a window onto this mysterious land where mythical and often dangerous metric system holds sway and comedy runs rampant….
It’s surprisingly bereft of action.
That’s a lot of old man strength.
Guy Ritchie movies are well known for being fast-paced, action-packed roller coaster rides, chock full of colorful, off the wall characters and more twists than a Chubby Checker song. Mostly…
Will Jason Statham help the franchise garner critical success to match its commercial success? Nope.
If you like guns and watching things explode you should watch the 10 best French action movies. The films that made the list of the ten best French action movies…
It’s “Owen and Statham vs. De Niro,” or “Owen and De Niro vs. Statham,” or something.
Damn, I thought it was about parkour at first
Check out one of the best action stars with these Jason Statham movies. This former Olympic Diver and model got the audition which would turn into his big screen debut…
Well, it’s springtime. Which means along with the setting forward of clocks, comes the kicking of asses courtesy of Jason Statham.
Put on your rubber underwear because I have surprising news. Jason Statham is circling a movie about a fellow who needs to deliver an item from point A to point B.
I made this quiz as a sign of my undying love for the British action star. How much do I love him? Well, let’s just say that when I sit and daydream about having sex with beautiful women, I always picture myself as Jason Statham.
The characters take it all seriously, but the story just goes wildly over the top for the sake of creating awesome set pieces.
There’s a good chance you’re wavering on whether or not to go see The Mechanic. It’s just Jason Statham with a gun after all, a sight you’ve seen so many times now you’re beginning to wonder why he doesn’t just get a damn glock surgically affixed to his arm.
Unlike the lame trailer you already saw, this new red band version has f-bombs and nipples. And I’m not talking about guy nipples; I’m talking about the good kind.
The Expendables put together a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack jam packed with special features that offer more than enough insight into the action and on-set camaraderie.
Here we have a trailer for a film starring Jason Statham, Ray Winstone, Mickey Rourke, and 50 Cent. Surprisingly, it’s not titled Tough Guys Mumbling.
In the film, Statham plays a mechanic, but not the kind of mechanic that fixes cars and stuff. He’s the kind that fixes people’s heads…with bullets.
There is the right way, the wrong way, and the Jason Statham way to handle life's problems. To live by the Statham way means kicking as much possible ass with a cool British smokers accent and still not break a sweat. Statham, the former olympic swimming diver, turned mega action star shows that you should never mess with Union Jack in a dark alleyway or street fight. With The Expendables opening this week, Statham shows how a tough guy should act and still keep his cool, remember head butt first and ask questions later, mate.
Highly Debatable Best Role: Chev Chelios in Crank
Weird Fact: Made In The Name Of The King with Uwe Boll at the height of his popularity.

There was this large plastic bin that I had growing up filled with action figures and their various weapon accessories. From Duke Nuk'em to The Terminator, the original 90s Batman series, metal figure G.I Joes, Aliens, X-Men, Biker Mice from Mars, Ghostbusters, Toxic Crusaders and others that I have now forgot. They traveled with me wherever I moved during those years. They were my friends, enemies, and characters to create.

Man Challenge: Get your ass to the theater the weekend of August 13th to see The Expendables or else Eat, Pray, Love might take the number one spot at the box office. I'm not saying this because Lionsgate bought me the jacuzzi full of Voss that I'm currently working in, I'm saying it because if a movie specifically tailored for guys like us fails to bring in the dough, our future will be grim. So, so grim. In fact, make so much noise through your enthusiasm for The Expendables that the females in the Eat, Pray, Love theater next door turn to either side and disgustedly utter the word, "Men…" You're goddamned right "men." Check out the Call to Arms Expendables trailer after the jump.
On paper The Expendables is terrible. In execution it is the most fun I've had in a movie theater for quite some time. This movie almost has it all; explosions, gratuitous violence, badasses, unnecessary motorcycle-riding montages, bad guys getting their heads kicked off, and awkward stabs at banter delivered by foreign tongues. And this new one minute cutdown of the trailer highlights all those elements. Especially the banter. Somebody in Internet add a laugh-track to this movie immediately. Somebody not me.

One of these men has an enlarged prostate. No you're not looking at a pharmaceutical campaign, that's the new Legends Poster for The Expendables. It's about a bunch of men who do mercenary work in between trips to the bathroom for wee wee. I kid, I kid, don't stroke out. In fact, in the new sneak peak of the movie, the guys are bruising more ass than whippersnappers one-third their age. "The Boys Are Back in Town" by Thin Lizzy also helps with the playful tone of the footage. If they used Linkin' Park for the backing track, then we'd know shit is about to get real. Check out the sneak peak after the jump. The Expendables works its way into theaters August 13, 2010.
"COOKIE???!!!"Looks like Tony Scott will finally have the chance to make his passion project Potsdamer Platz after nattering on and on about it for the last decade. Sheesh, we get it. You like movies about trains.The film, about a New Jersey crime family expanding their business nationally, is expected to undergo a title and locale change as the latest script has the action moving from Germany to Puerto Rico. Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, and Javier Bardem are all rumored to be circling the project. Though if Bardem drops out, Scott can probably get Jeffrey Dean Morgan at a bargain rate. It's also being reported that the Crimson Tide director is trying to lure Gene Hackman out of retirement to take part in the film, but inside sources say that isn't happening. I could have told you that. Dude is way too into taking bong rips and playing Forza Motorsport 3 to waste his time making movies. (Deadline)
The trailer for the powerhouse action film The Expendables has hammer-punched its way on to the Internetz. It stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Governator himself. Until now I was unaware that celluloid could contain that much raw power. Add a theme song by the guy from Godsmack and the package is complete. I don't know about you, but I feel like wrestling a Minotaur! Check out the trailer below. The Expendables busts into theaters August 13, 2010. ROAAAAR!!!!
