You are hereSylvester Stallone
An aspiring boxer runs out of his home and onto the streets of Philadelphia for his morning run. A fantastic fanfare plays as children and adults follow him through the city, cheering his name all along the way. After seventy-two steps up the Philadelphia Museum of Art, he raises his fists into the air in celebration as the crowd surrounds him and continues to chant his name. Now with millions of fans around the world, this iconic scene can only come from one series, Rocky.
Sylvester Stallone is aiming for big stars to participate in the next Expendables installment and has indicated via Twitter a possible addition to the cast - Wesley Snipes. After tweeting that Snipes "is BACK!!!! ... ...with US," rumors started circulating that Snipes would be joining in on the fun, but confirmation of the news is still pending. The Twitter posting was soon deleted.
The upcoming Rambo video game, developed by Teyon, the company behind the Heavy Fire series, will feature the movie voice tracks of Stallone as John Rambo and Richard Crenna as Col. Samuel Trautman.
When Sly Stallone was looking for actors to star in the Expendables 2, one of the people he asked was Jackie Chan. Regretably, Chan turned down the offer because of his commitment to CZ12, a personal project that had him directing, writing, and starring in the film. But this time around he has no such obligations.
I still can't get over the fact that Sylvester Stallone is 66 years old. How is this guy still going? I get winded rolling out of bed in the morning. Expendables 2 proved he has no intention of slowing down either. His next cinematic ass-kicking session comes in the form of Bullet to the Head. We got a taste of the film a few months ago with an initial trailer, now we can see a little more with the theatrical version. Check it out below.
The Italian Stallion vs. Raging Bull? Two iconic movie boxers meeting face to face in the ring on the silver screen? I'm just as confused as you are. Warner Bros. studios has greenlit Grudge Match, a comedy where two over the hill boxers, played by Sylvestor Stallone and Robert De Niro, Rocky Balboa and Jake LaMotta respectively, stake a comeback and square off for one last hurrah.
The trailer for Schwarzenegger's new film went live today, so it's only fair that another member of The Expendables gets some spotlight as well. The debut trailer for Bullet to the Head just hit the interwebs, and while it looks a lot less over-the-top than The Last Stand, it was directed by the guy who did The Warriors, so that's pretty cool.
I'm not going to lie, the first Expendables was a huge guilty pleasure for me, and if this trailer is any indication, the second one is going to be approximately ten jillion times more insane. I don't know whether it's the ridiculous cast, the huge set pieces, the over-the-top choreography, or the fact that they're running over everything in tanks, but something's working here for me. Check it out below and let me know what you think. The Expendables 2 is set to hit theaters on August 17.
Explosions, guns, piles of dead bad guys, and more explosions seem to sum up most action movies. Granted, scriptwriters usually manage to weave a decent story in between the explosions and gunfights, but some manage to do it better than others. When a movie opens with some notable success, talks of a sequel began to make their way to the rumor mill.
