New EXPENDABLES trailer is a visual energy drink

Warning to any viewer who watches the following trailer for THE EXPENDABLES: It's like drinking Red Bull mixed with Mountain Dew mixed with pure gasoline while simultaneously eating extreme nacho cheese Doritos whilst hang-gliding and getting a sweet tribal arm tat at the same time. In an Affliction t-shirt.

Yes, it is that testosterone-filled. Not to mention star-filled, as the film features more action heroes than you can shake a dumbbell at. See for yourself over at Ain't It Cool News.

I still can't put my finger on the pulse of this film. The more I see from it, the more intentionally goofy it looks. Obviously, there is a fair share of action, not to mention explosions galore and, in casting that many notable knuckleheads in one film, it has to be self-aware to a degree in what it is setting out to do. I just fear the bark will be bigger than the bite.

What is for sure after seeing this trailer however is that Mickey Rourke's dreadlocks are apparently now a style choice and not something he adopted for IRON MAN 2.
