Even though The Expendables 2 won't hit theaters until August, that's not going to stop Barney Ross and his men from celebrating the 4th of July. ComingSoon.net received a package this morning from Lionsgate with a cigar wrapped in patriotic paper and the below message:
As we celebrate our nation's independence this 4th of July, we thought you might want to take a moment, over a cigar, to contemplate what makes the perfect American summer movie.
Perhaps it's the presence of a true, classic American hero (or a dirty dozen of them). The Expendables 2 harkens back to a time when our heroes were flesh and blood - putting their lives on the line for a cause, taking on impossible odds, and relying on sheer guts, skill and a refusal to quit.
In theaters everywhere on August 17th, we hope you won't miss this red-blooded American classic.
Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger , Scott Adkins and Yu Nan, The Expendables 2 will also be featured at Comic-Con next week, so back for updates they become available.
