Ridiculously Explosive Full Trailer for The Expendables 2

Holy crap. Them’s lots of explosions going on there.

Check out the first full trailer for “The Expendables 2″, which actually reminds me of “Scream 2″, where those two movie nerds talk about sequels, and how they always have to be bigger, louder, and offer up a higher bodycount than the first movie. I think it’s safe to say that director Simon West and his “Expendables 2″ boys and gals have all three of those elements covered here. Hell, they even got Van Damme to do his trademark jump-in-the-air-back-kick thing on Sly. That’s kinda awesome.

The sequel finds all-purpose mercenary Barney Ross and his usual gang of tough guys (and a new gal) taking on more muscle (and guns) when they are tasked with stopping Jean-Claude Van Damme’s villain. Van Damme, it appears, wants to take over the world or some such. Look, he’s evil, he has tanks and an unlimited supply of faceless henchmen to be blown up and shot to pieces. Do you really need to know more than that? Of course not, don’t be an idiot. ACTION!

The mayhem brought to you by Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Nan Yu, Liam Hemsworth, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Scott Adkins.

    Dammit man! I can’t keep having to change my pants everytime you put something from E2 up! Seriously! That said, its too late! I can’t wait for this! Really a return to good old fashioned 80’s style action flicks. Yes it’s preposteruous. Yes it’s insane. Yes it’s over the top. And that’s exactly why it’s fun! So what are Billy the Kid and Maggie’s specialties?

    And the Van Dame Split kick! CLASSIC! We call the the “WEEI” (porunced WH-AY)kick amonsgt my friends cause thats the sound he used to make. LOL.

      OMFG me and my brothers all call JCVD’s split kick the “WEEI” lmmfao. I haven’t seen him do that move since the late 90’s!!! Every movie he’s been in I keep waiting for him to do it……but he doesn’t. This is shaping up to be my FAVORITE action movie of all time man. SOOOOOOO pumped!!!!

      Now, I’m bout to go down a lb. of beef jerky and a protein shake and hit the gym!!!!

    Stallone was right, this is more badass than the first! Caught a glimpse of Scott Adkins there as well.

    Too much awesomeness…head might explode…can’t wait to see this much longer…

    Ever since Van Damme’s heyday in the ’90s, I’ve believed that he would make a fantastic villain. Now I finally get to see if I’m right.
