The Expendables 2, starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jet-Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and others, is releasing worldwide on August 17. This film is directed by Simon West. It is produced by Avi Lerner and distributed by Lionsgate.
In this film, after taking a seemingly simple job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis), the Expendables find their plans going awry and one of their own is brutally murdered by rival mercenary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme). The Expendables set out into hostile territory – with their new members Bill the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) – to put a stop to a deadly weapon and gain their revenge against the people who killed their brother.
The Expendables, starring aging action heroes, described as an ensemble action film, was directed by Sylvester Stallone and released in 2010. It became a sleeper hit by collecting $275 million at the box office. Immediately, the sequel was planned.
