The Expendables II teaser arrives

ExpendablesII.jpgJust in time for Christmas there's a present for all the fans of The Expendables out there, and that does include me even if I think the film itself was sub-par, it's the line-up of stars that did all the hard work and attracted so many people to the film, and that's what's happening with the sequel, The Expendables II.

For me the addition of Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme to the existing roll call is great, but it's the fact that Sylvester Stallone is getting Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger into more action than the previous film that has me excited the most, and this teaser plays on that.

The plot for the film has arrived too, and we're hearing what the slightly altered team are going to be facing in The Expendables II, and it sounds good. Here's the blurb.

The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time -- six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way.

Now here's the teaser for The Expendables II which is over at Apple Trailers and is embedded here through TrailerAddict:

It does the job rather well I'd say, and the appearance of the two big names at the end is something we've been waiting for. I'm just hoping this is way more of an appearance than last time and isn't still an over extended cameo for the two stars. I want Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting side by side, or against each other I don't mind, in their full action hero splendor.
