Finally, the time has come for an official trailer to everyone's favorite cinematic mash-up of action heroes of yore and their latter-day counterparts. The end result? It would seem we can expect more of the same over-the-top action goodness and smile-inducing cameos that we've come to expect from The Expendables
franchise. Which can be a good or bad thing depending on which side of the action movie theater you choose to park your tank.
This first of (I'm sure) several trailers gives a solid rundown of the cast, though any story details and/or spoilers have been cleverly disguised amongst the clamor of gunfire and assault of biceps. The most surprising new name on the list? Probably Kelsey Grammer. Not to critique too harshly, but his strongest action movie credential is looking like Down Periscope
Astute readers of the KarateMart.com Martial Arts Blog will notice that we successfully predicted

So sit back, tune the speaker level to eleven, your brain-power to three, and let Mr. Billy Squire lead you through the lands of action movie fun. It's Friday.
