'The Expendables 2' -- the sequel to superstar actioner 'The Expendables' -- is not so much the celebration of insane, red-blooded violence and testosterone that feeds the nostalgia of the golden age of action films as it is a sobering display of aging action stars struggling to maintain relevancy in the age of computer-generated effects and the influence of Michael Bay.
Ever since ‘With a Vengeance,’ the ‘Die Hard’ sequels have focused on whom John McClane (Bruce Willis) could be paired with as he attempted to take down the terrorist flavor-of-the-month. Samuel L. Jackson gave way to Justin Long and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, playing McClane’s grown-up daughter Lucy. And while the ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ plans to focus on McClane’s son John (Jai Courtney), new photos posted show Winstead back… in a limited role, at least.
Despite having Bruce Willis' name on top of the poster, 'Red' was something of a surprise hit back in 2010, mainly because it's not every day that a movie with a cast almost entirely comprised of senior citizens makes $186 million worldwide. With the sequel, appropriately titled 'Red 2,' set to being filming soon, another very cool actor is ready to join an already jam-packed cast: Neal McDonough, who you may remember as "Dum Dum" Dugan in 'Captain America: The First Avenger' and from the latest season of 'Justified.'
You've probably never heard of 'Fire With Fire,' and that's because we hadn't either, until just now when someone apparently pulled the mangled remains of a trailer out of some garbage can and said, "Here, internet, you take this. You take it and you cherish it." That person was most likely a hobo, but who's to say?
'Looper' is one of our most anticipated movies of 2012 simply because it marks the return of director Rian Johnson, who blew us away with his previous films, 'Brick' and 'The Brothers Bloom.' But a Rian Johnson film about time travel starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis? Oh, man. Let's get in line right now. Anyway, the film's pretty awesome new poster isn't going to make the wait any easier.
