‘The Avengers’ have assembled, while Spidey and Batman are about to drop. But that doesn’t mean Summer 2012 will be ready to pack it in. Action junkies bummed by the departure of ‘G.I. Joe’ can still look forward to a new ‘Bourne’ movie, as well as Sly Stallone’s ‘Expendables 2', which is shifting its marketing campaign into high gear.
Having Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone in a movie together may have been more exciting before 'The Expendables' films, but let's face it - Arnold's roles were just cameos. 'The Tomb' is first time the duo will really be face to face, and though that might have been more exciting in 1987, it's still kind of cool.
Walter Hill's return to the big screen directing Sylvester Stallone in 'Bullet to the Head' was once scheduled for April 2012. Obviously, that didn't happen, but it may explain why it's move to February 1, 2013 sounds bad. The film was briefly set for November, though there are a couple of good reasons for the move.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone getting together again (after 'The Expendables' films) would seem like a dream team for a movie twenty years ago, but only now do we get the two in leading roles playing against each other in Mikael Hafstrom's 'The Tomb.' In what seems like a bid for the four quadrants, the film has added Amy Ryan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.
Action fans anxiously awaiting the return of biceps, BOTOX and bazookas for 'The Expendables 2' were a little worried when news hit a few weeks ago that Chuck Norris said the star-studded sequel to the 2010 hard 'R' action extravaganza would be toned down because of his involvement. But, as it turns out, there's no need to worry.
