That Sylvester Stallone-produced “The ExpendaBelles” (aka the officially sanctioned female version of “The Expendables”), with the likes of Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff in the cast, is still in the works, but leave it to the Asylum to beat it to the big screen with “Mercenaries,” their very own assemblage of hot kick-ass females. Of course, these days the only name from the cast you’re likely to even know is former “Terminator” star Kristanna Loken, though you more DVD-minded kids will recognize Zoe Bell.
Anyways, check out the trailer for “Mercenaries.” It doesn’t look too bad if you know what you’re getting into. It is, after all, from the Asylum. Need I say more?
A diplomatic official is captured and imprisoned while touring a war zone, so a team of elite female commandos is assembled to infiltrate a women’s prison for a daring rescue.
Starring Zöe Bell, Kristanna Loken, Vivica A. Fox, Brigitte Nielsen, Nicole Bilderback, and Cynthia Rothrock.
Hitting DVD/VOD this August 5th, though it apparently had a showing at Comic Con over the weekend.
