Watch Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Expendables 2 trailer

Get a taste of the upcoming action blockbuster's set-pieces and one liners in this new trailer

Action fans can get their first look at The Expendables 2 in this newly-released trailer.


The teaser reintroduces us to the band of mercenaries led by Sylvester Stallone we first met in 2010 and showcases plenty of action set-pieces, breathtaking stunts and even some 80’s style one-liners (such as Jason Statham, dressed as a monk, intoning “I now pronounce you man and knife”.)

Starring a cast of action movie legends including Stallone, Statham, Arnie, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jet Li, The Expendables 2 looks set to be even more spectacular, gung-ho and over the top than its prequel.

The plot this time around sees Barney Ross and his team on a quest for revenge after one of their crew is killed on the job, unaware that their attempts to get even will bring them up against an unexpected – and possibly catastrophic – threat.

Directed by Simon West, the film will be released in UK cinemas on Friday 17 August.
