The Expendables 2 Trailer

Just in time to provide a crotchety-old-men counter to this week's barrage of colorful costumed superheroes, comes the first feature-length trailer for Expendables 2 that features an intro by the Sly one himself as he promises the second go-around will kick even more ass than the first.

Though the trailer doesn't reveal much more about the storyline, it does promise some very spectacular explosions, intricate set pieces, and of course, plenty of burly men blowing shit up. Stallone has turned the reigns of the franchise over to Simon West who plied his craft to the previous action pieces, Con Air and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. There's no question he knows where to put the camera for maximum effect, so if the story is any good, this one should be a worthy follow-up to the first film in the franchise that grossed over $100 million back in 2010.

The trailer debuted over at IGN but you can check it out below in hi-def. Returning from the first film are Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. New to the scene this time around are Liam Hemsworth, and action stalwarts Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Chuck Norris,
