The Expendables 2 has enjoyed being the number one movie in America during its opening week August 17-23, 2012! The Simon West directed thriller, starring Sylvester Stallone and a star-studded cast of action heroes, earned another $3.8 million in its 8th day of release for a gross of $42.6 million so far. We’d like to thank all of the fans that have supported the movie and booked tickets at theatres, returning time and again to enjoy this old school action extravaganza.
Sylvester Stallone attended the premiere for The Expendables 2 at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 in Los Angeles. He is pictured here with actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and below with Jean-Claude Van Damme, who also stars in the film.

Barney Ross, Lee Christmas, Yin Yang, Gunnar Jensen,Toll Road and Hale Caesar — with newest members Billy the Kid and Maggie aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time – six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world.
