Rocky’s brought back an old producer pal-o for his New Orleans hitman movie.
I’m not sure I’d want anything bursting out of my skull, but seeing a chrome-plated “2″ bursting out of a metal skull is pretty awesome.
"The Expendables" cast has quite the ensemble cast. Most are veteran actors, legends even, who starred in blockbuster action flicks during the 80s and early 90s. Joining these seasoned greats…
He just wants his kids back!
Totally tubular to the excellent.
Stallone “clashed creatively” with would-be director Wayne Kramer (‘Running Scared’), which I’m imagining means there was a story meeting where punches were thrown.
Let’s pray the cast lives long enough to see the movie.
Fans of explosions and arm-breakings may be upset that Sylvester Stallone will likely not be directing the sequel to his smash-hit brainchild, ‘The Expendables’.

With ‘The Expendables’, Sylvester Stallone paid homage to the gritty, bizarrely-cast, shoot ‘em up action flicks of the 1980′s. It looks like his next will pay homage to formulaic, generic cop action dramas.
Also up for auction were cars driven by Evel Knievel, Alice Cooper and Elvis. The theme of the auction must have been “Big In The 70s.”
If you’re a man of Sylvester Stallone’s stature, you enjoy the finest things that life has to offer. Fast cars, tall women, Ed Hardy clothing, arms so veiny they look like horse c*cks, and expensive ink pens as it turns out.
Born in the Hell’s Kitchen Neighborhood of New York City and raised in Philadelphia, Sylvester Stallone has led the charge on making a name for himself in the entertainment industry. Always the lead of the 80s action pack, Stallone has now found a 2nd career revitalizing his favorite Rocky and Rambo characters for a new generation.
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.
Sylvester Stallone choked out Julia Roberts over the weekend, and his movie also beat hers at the box office. Stallone's salute to gritty 80's action, The Expendables, easily took the top spot with $35 million. Audiences weren't as eager to see Julia Roberts get fat and f*ck. Eat, Pray, Love took the second spot with just under $24 million. Looks like the call to action worked, fellas.
Then there was Scott Pilgrim… well, Scott Pilgrim just kinda showed up, slumped its shoulders while gazing at its shoes before mumbling something about the new Arcade Fire album. Despite great reviews, producers just couldn't get fans of coin-op references and lesbian haircuts into the theater to see this one. But in all fairness, it was really sunny out in McCarren Park on Saturday. (Reuters)

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.

While Sylvester Stallone may have ruled out Rambo V, he certainly hasn't ruled out another film involving the iconic character. In an interview with Empire, Stallone left the door for a prequel wide open.
"I certainly think this is worth pondering," was his response. "It's intriguing to find the whys and wherefores of how peope have become what they are. The traumas, the loss and the tragedy of being in Vietnam would certainly be a great challenge for a young actor, and it would be ironic that Rambo directs younger Rambo having played it for twenty years plus…"
I, for one, would love to see Rambo's backstory developed into a feature-length film. But in order to get people interested, there has to be a twist. For example, what if Rambo's psychotic tendencies stemmed not from his service in Vietnam, but rather from an ill-fated childhood field-trip to J. Edger Hoovers' office?
I've got cinematography skillz.
While at Comic-Con, I attended a party for The Expendables where Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin presented an Action Hero Hall of Fame Award to Sylvester Stallone. He's the first recipient, so I'm not sure how prestigious it is. Guess it all depends on who receives it next year. If it's Luke Wilson for his work in Blue Streak then I'll know it's legit.
Check out the shakey, blurry video after the jump…
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.
Sylvester Stallone is reportedly looking to star in a film about the infamous NYC mobster, John Gotti, and is in talks with Gotti's son to develop the film. Stallone and "Junior" are rumored to be shopping around for a screenwriter who can bring the film to life.Possible titles for the Teflon Don's bio include Stop or My Don Will Shoot, Rocky VII: Rocky Goes Down in the 8th or We Kill His Kid, and Judge Dredd…Sentenced Me to Life In a Supermax Cause I'm a Murderous *sshole.

Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Crow.The Expendables has released its second theatrical trailer. And like any movie staring almost every living action star known to man, the film knows what the fans want to see: a crow sitting on top of the skull from Indy 4. The marketing guru's behind this ad should win a medal for their brave choice. After all, who needs to see "action" when you've got a nice looking bird to watch? Audubon Society 4 Ev-a, Dogg! (SlashFilm) Watch a bird sit on a skull and then fly away after the jump.
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.
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!!!!
Two posters for Stallone's The Expendables were presented at ShoWest and they've refortified my testicles after the damage they sustained from watching the Eat, Pray, Love trailer. The first shows a chrome skull adorned with gun/knife wings (and bullet poops?). It can only be accurately described as "visual Pantera." The second isn't as cool. It's an Ed Hardyized picture of what Stallone would look like as a back tatt. Sandra Bullock would be wise to lock it away before her husband tries to have sex with it. (Collider)
Back in September, Sylvester Stallone announced that he'd be going toe-to-toe with a were-beast super soldier hybrid in the fifth Rambo film. Fan reaction was not so good. In fact, Stallone wrote this impassioned letter in defense of this departure in creative direction. Well all that doesn't matter now because Stallone is taking the cheaper way out and hiring Mexican day laborers to play the heavies in the film.Addressing fans at StalloneZone, the actor said:"To all the loyal SZoners out there,I'm letting you know that Rambo has changed course and the story about hunting the man/beast will be done using another character in the lead. RAMBO himself will be heading over the border to a violent city where many young women have vanished.There will be blood.""There will be blood." Haha. I think it's cute when old people use the Internet. (StalloneZone)

Some new behind-the-scenes footage from The Expendables popped up on the film's official production blog. It gives us a cool glimpse at Sylvester Stallone as a director. Marvel as he waves a gun around during a scene's rehearsal, while key crew members cringe for fear of having their heads blown off by a (presumably) prop gun. There's some 1st A.D. looking fellow who literally drops to the floor at one point. This reminds me of that great story about Kubrick randomly shooting off a shotgun during the filming of The Shining to keep Shelley Duvall on edge so that it bled into her performance. That's an epic win for Kubrick. But that sort of thing is probably frowned upon by SAG these days. Way to go, unionized labor. *sarcastic celebratory firing of shotgun into the air* Watch the video, which also includes a nice moment in which Stallone refers to an airplane as "sex" incarnate, after the jump.
