We are just two days away from Independence Day here in the U.S. and the upcoming action ensemble "The Expendables 2" has sent Coming Soon a personalized "Happy Fourth" message.
Take a look at what the crew of hard nosed classic action heroes had to say.
As we celebrate our nation's independence this 4th of July, we thought you might want to take a moment, over a cigar, to contemplate what makes the perfect American summer movie.
Perhaps it's the presence of a true, classic American hero (or a dirty dozen of them). The Expendables 2 harkens back to a time when our heroes were flesh and blood - putting their lives on the line for a cause, taking on impossible odds, and relying on sheer guts, skill and a refusal to quit.
In theaters everywhere on August 17th, we hope you won't miss this red-blooded American classic.
The Expendables are back and this time it's personal...
Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.
That is done the Expendables way....
Simon West directs a cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"The Expendables 2" opens in AMC Theatres on August 17, 2012.
