"They'll Die When They're Dead."
Lionsgate has released a new red-band trailer for Expendables 4, aka Expend4bles, along with a series of posters spotlighting the returning characters and a few new faces.
The footage begins with voice-over man having a field day, as he explains that this fourth movie will finally give the fans what they've been asking for by making the action R-rated (were the previous entries PG-13?).
This would appear to be setting-up plenty of on-screen carnage, but what follows is a relatively tame teaser, with some CGI blood spurts, a couple of F-bombs, and one final shot of Megan Fox's character in her underwear.
Not exactly going to have the MPAA up in arms, but we're sure fans will appreciate the effort.
Check out the new trailer and posters below.
Stuntman-turned-director Scott Waugh (Need for Speed) will helm the project from a script by Spenser Cohen, Max Adams and John Joseph Connolly.
“It’s so much fun to bring these stars together for a no-holds-barred action film,” said Jason Constantine, president of acquisitions and co-productions for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group back when the movie was first announced. “The new film will raise the stakes and be the biggest, most badass adventure yet. Popcorn entertainment is guaranteed,” added Millennium president, Jeffrey Greenstein.
A new generation of stars join the world’s top action stars for an adrenaline-fueled adventure in Expend4bles. Reuniting as the team of elite mercenaries, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Sylvester Stallone are joined for the first time by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Megan Fox, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Jacob Scipio, Levy Tran, and Andy Garcia. Armed with every weapon they can get their hands on and the skills to use them, The Expendables are the world’s last line of defense and the team that gets called when all other options are off the table. But new team members with new styles and tactics are going to give “new blood” a whole new meaning.
Expendables 4 hits theaters on September 22.
