Sometimes you need an engaging story, top quality performances and a soundtrack from the gods…and sometimes you need explosions, lots of explosions. Add in bullet-fire and a bunch of testosterone fuelled muscle men and you have a recipe for screen gratification and instant remorse. The Expendables fits the later criteria to a tee.

Filled with ageing action stars from Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis to Arnie and relative newboy Jason Statham this promises balls-to-the-wall action and no discernible plot to speak off. Fantastic! Basically they’re all part of a squad of highly trained military personnel tasked with overthrowing a dictator who has caused devastation in South America for over 20 years, but that’s not important…

What is important is that there’s a new trailer. The movie is released August 13th, but until then this will have to suffice.

      @Olive Everybody needs those turn-off-your-brain-at-the-door type movies once in a while. This should be a classic.
