One Minute of ‘The Expendables’ Might Be All You’ll Need

Lionsgate has released a new 60-second trailer for Sly Stallone’s The Expendables. And despite its brief runtime, it may be the best trailer they’ve released for the name-heavy actioner yet. It accurately captures the promised tone of the film, one filled with bullets and bravado. A mountain of machismo. Oh, and they’ve improved their choice of music a bit — I can’t stand that metal song they used in the first full trailer.

That said, the movie is still resting its laurels on the names: Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, Statham, Li, Austin, Lundgren and more. And so it should. This may be the most impressive assembly of action stars in the history of cinema. That’s an accomplishment in itself. Though I will say this: it had better not be the movie’s only accomplishment. Should The Expendables turn out to be the big loud dud that some fear it might be, there will be a mutiny on the HMS Fanboy.

For now though, I would expect cheers and fist-pumping from the fanboy nation as you enjoy the following mini-trailer. The Expendables is in theaters August 13, 2010.
