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!

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!

A new trailer has arrived for the sequel to the first film, and the words nuance and subtlety don't apply. The highlight is a joke about "The Terminator" and the lowlight is a joke about a Smart car. Those are basically the two ends of the very narrow spectrum within which this film is working, so can you probably park your brain cells at the door for this one. That said, it does look bigger and more expensive than the last movie, which means the explosions should be more explosion-y.

Anyway, watch this below. "The Expendables 2" opens up in retirement homes everywhere on August 17th.
