Hollywood Copies Itself Again: THE EXPENDABLES vs THE A-TEAM vs THE LOSERS

I've been studying the summer movie releases coming up in 2010 and I've noticed that a lot of Hollywood releases are, well, copies of one another. We've seen it time and again. For every original movie, there are a host of copycats. Sometimes, however, we have to put up with more than a few copied scenes and cliche lines. Remember Finding Nemo and Shark Tale? Deep Impact and Armageddon? Hollywood is known to produce formulaic, unoriginal movies, but....come on guys? Did we really need Volcano and Dante's Peak

THE EXPENDABLES trailer is packed full of 80s action

We've been hearing about Sylvester Stallone's big 80s action return for a while, but now the trailer is finally here. The Expendables stars Stallone and a huge cast of action stars including Jet Li, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, and the immortal Dolph Lundgren. Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger also make short appearances in the film.

Watching the trailer, I can't help but feel nostalgic. Like the recently released Ninja Assassin, The Expendables seems to take pride in its ludicrous nature. Its villains are 80s stereotypes, its explosions are huge, and its premise is entirely unwarranted. It hits theaters August 13. Thanks to my friends at Filmonic for the link.
