The Expendables 2 Full Trailer
Can you say “KABOOOOOM!!!”? Introduced by Sly himself (who seems to have some trouble getting the name of his movie right), it’s big it’s loud, it’s got massive explosions, it’s got more testosterone than you can waggle a bicep at, it’s got Jason Statham delivering some great one-liners (“I now pronounce...
