One of the summer's most anticipated films is 'The Expendables 2.' Even if the first film was heavily flawed, this time they've added Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme into mix (along with others), and it offers extended roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Here's the first look at the film, with action from Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham.

This clip comes from Ain't it Cool News, who have a long-standing relationship with Stallone at this point, and it's likely they will have a question and answer session with the star before the film comes out August 17.

The footage shows Stallone and Statham in heat of action, and offers Liam Hemsworth stuck in the bush working as a sniper. Stallone gets to be the hero of the moment, and it's an okay action beat. Just okay, though.

Honestly, the first film was not very good, though it had the great idea of assembling some of the greatest badasses in modern cinema history. This time they've loaded the film with even more great butt-kickers, and that gets us interested. This footage excites us only so much, but we hope for great things from "Also Van Damme" as the villain fighting these guys.
