"The Expendables" are back and this time it's...bigger, we guess. More names, more budget, more insurance waivers...these old timers are back to aggravate their hernias in an effort to save the world or something.

Poster time. First up, it's "The Expendables 2," wherein Sylvester Stallone brings back his geriatric action team, including Jet Li, Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren, along with Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Claude Van Damme. We're generally against it, but thank god for Photoshop touchups, as this is a ghastly looking sausage party. The original film started out slow at the box office, but eventually crawled to a very respectable $274 million worldwide. Presumably the sequel can at least duplicate those numbers, otherwise, what’s the point? “The Expendables 2” is set for an August 17th release.

With joints creaking, insurers likely charging high premiums, and Bengay likely being brought on set by the boatload, Sylvester Stallone has rounded up his action hero old timers for "The Best Exotic Marigold Hail Of Bullets" aka "The Expendables 2." In short, it takes all your favorite action heros over the age of 50, who were never great actors to begin with, and puts them all in the same movie. Promising!

While a definitive release date has yet to be locked down, a poster and a collection of stills has debuted for the new Nicolas Cage thriller "Stolen" (formerly "Medallion," which made it sound like a negligible Jackie Chan movie), with the appropriately Nic Cage-y tagline: "12 hours. $10 million. 1 kidnapped daughter." We're not sure about the math, but we're certainly excited about the movie!

Break out the Ben Gay, because Sylvester Stallone is back with "The Expendables 2" and he's raided the action movie old folks home to dust off Arnold Schwarznegger and Chuck Norris and more to join his pals and young blood Liam Hemsworth in the last brawny flick.

Remember the days when a trailer was just a simple marketing tool for a movie? Now, you need a marketing tool for your marketing tool. Or, as Terry Crews says in this near pointless micro-teaser for "The Expendables 2," "You know that you've got to have a trailer for the trailer now, son."

Do you love the smell of napalm, old sausage fests, sulphur, Old Spice and Ultra Strength Bengay in the morning? If so, you probably can't wait for "The Expendables 2."

The summer movie season is only a few weeks away. Indeed, in some parts of the world, it's already underway. Due to the Euro 2012 football tournament, the rest of the world are getting several films, including "The Avengers" and "Prometheus" early, and many territories were unlucky enough to get "Battleship" in their multiplexes last week. But things kick off in the U.S. on May 4th with "The Avengers," with roughly one massive tentpole following every week after that.

On Second Thought, Leave The Kids At Home: 'The Expendables 2' To Be R-Rated, Says Stallone

Everyone, fanboys or no, appreciates the fact that Sylvester Stallone has his hand on the pulse of his audience. When working on the first installment of "The Expendables", he seemed to cast the picture based on what fans wanted to see, he fired 50 Cent when his casting was met with hostility, and he did heavy duty work in the editing room to make sure the PG-13 he was shooting for became a last-minute R rating. He also made a film that was a massive show of bland fan service, absent of the nuance or savagery that powered "Rocky Balboa" and "Rambo", even refusing to stay true to his title by keeping every single hero alive. Though Stallone's not in the director's chair this time, it looks like he's done it again, flip-flopping on the rating for a film that's already been shot despite previous comments to the contrary.
