Following yesterday’s rockin’ poster, the first trailer for Expend4bles, or better yet The Expendables 4, has finally arrived. The film finds Sylvester Stallone back as team leader Barney Ross for one final mission, with Jason Statham returning as Lee Christmas, Randy Couture as demolitions expert Toll Road, and Dolph Lundgren as knife expert Gunner Jensen. We also get a look at new addition Megan Fox, who looks to be a violent and sexy love interest.
Also in the cast are 50 Cent, Jacob Scipio, Levy Tran, Sheila Shah, Andy Garcia, and of the greatest interest to action fans, Ong-Bak‘s Tony Jaa and The Raid star Iko Uwais. It’s Uwais who plays the chief villain, setting up a potentially awesome showdown with Statham. The film is directed by Scott Waugh, best known for directing the military thriller Acts of Valor.
Stallone revealed a couple of years ago that this would be his final ride in The Expendables franchise, with Statham set to take over. You can get a sense of that in this trailer, with Statham pushing the action.
Here is the synopsis: A new generation of stars join the world’s top action stars for an adrenaline-fueled adventure in Expend4bles. Reuniting as the team of elite mercenaries, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone are joined for the first time by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Jacob Scipio, Levy Tran, and Andy Garcia. Armed with every weapon they can get their hands on and the skills to use them, The Expendables are the world’s last line of defense and the team that gets called when all other options are off the table. But new team members with new styles and tactics are going to give “new blood” a whole new meaning.
Expend4bles hits theaters on September 22nd!
