Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables 2 gets a release date
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
THE EXPENDABLES 2, which is the sequel to the hugely successful film from last year, now has a release date. Even though we’re not exactly sure who will reprise their roles or who else will be added, at least we know when we’ll see them. Right now the release date Lionsgate has given THE EXPENDABLES 2 is August 17, 2012. Of course this is always subject to change, but right now the film has no competition and it’s right before the kids go back to school so it’s actually a good slot and roughly around the same time the first was released last year and we all know how well that worked out for them (as in almost $275 million at the worldwide box office). So stay tuned for production news and casting confirmations.
If any of you have been following us for awhile then I’m sure you know my stance on the first go of THE EXPENDABLES, so you also know I don’t care about the second at all, which still makes me sad. Why? It’s because I thought the first one could have been so much better. Oh well, maybe they’ll make some tweaks to this one and it will be much improved.
