I’m still hoping Sly and the gang blow the roof off with The Expendables 2. It all goes down August 17, as Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, and the rest of them hit theater screens. Not getting a huge amount of buzz so far is one of the newest members of the team – and the first female – Yu Nan (who co-starred with fellow Expendable Dolph Lundgren in 2007’s Diamond Dogs). It will be interesting to see how the 33-year-old Chinese actress is utilized.
In this brief “behind the scenes” featurette, Sylvester Stallone explains that The Expendables 2 isn’t “highly technical” as many modern action films are, promising to bring back some of “that old time rock and roll.”
In unrelated news, a trailer has been released for the upcoming Silent Hill: Revelation 3D – set to arrive in theaters October 26. This is the long-awaited part two in the Silent Hill film series, following the modest hit original from 2006, but it’s based on the video game Silent Hill 3. The movie was shot for 3D and stars Adelaide Clemens.
