Although they differ in style and tone in every way imaginable, 'The Expendables 2' and 'The Bourne Legacy' are both action movies and they share the same audience (people who like watching people beat up other people). The slick, modern 'The Bourne Legacy' was last week's box office champion, so everyone was wondering if its success would cut into the opening of the brawny, '80s throwback that is 'The Expendables 2.' Or vice versa. Well, the numbers are in...

Though 'The Expendables 3' isn't a given yet, virtually every action star from our collective youth shows up in ‘The Expendables 2.’ Planet Hollywood partners Stallone, Willis and Schwarzenegger are present. Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme get in on the fun this time around. They join contemporary butt-kickers Jet Li and Jason Statham. If they were to move ahead with 'The Expendables 3' we have a short list of action icons we’d hope to see on screen alongside this cavalcade of macho talent – and from what we hear, four such grizzled veterans might be ready for their glorified cameos.
