The first ever teaser trailer for "The Expendables" has leaked out. Destroy This Movie has recently brought forth a bootleg version of the film's sneak peek shown at 2009 Venice International Film Festival. It features many of action sequences and explosions from the movie as well as a look at the star-studded line-up.
At the 66th annual festival, star/director/writer Sylvester Stallone has talked to the press about teaming up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. "Arnold, Bruce and I will be working together for the first time, maybe in two weeks, so I had to grow back my beard and get ready to film it in Los Angeles," he said.
As for the movie, he explained, "I wanted to do a film that was more about men and just doing things that we did back in the '80s and '90s with films that were a little bit more men on men, and actual physical stunts and also a story that isn't super-gigantic." He added, "And the thing was to find certain personalities that never would ever work together normally and put them altogether. It's like a dream team."
A hard-hitting action/thriller, "The Expendables" centers on a group of mercenaries hired to infiltrate a South American country and overthrow its ruthless dictator. Beside Sylvester Stallone, the movie has Steve Austin, Dolph Lundgren, Brittany Murphy, Charisma Carpenter, Randy Couture and Mickey Rourke among the cast ensemble. August 20, 2010 is eyed for this film's U.S. release.
