Retour sur les carrières de Stallone et Schwarzenegger

La décennie 80 a vu en effet naître quelques perles que nous allons découvrir : La saga Rambo. The Expendables: Trailer. Countdown: In Theaters Today. Official website. Box-office US : démarrage musclé pour les "Expendables" ! Review. En plein revival 80′s, Stallone a rassemblé le plus gros casting de films d’action du cinéma.

Review

The Expendables aurait été sympatoche … si s’était effectivement tourné dans les années 80 ! Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Rourke et bien d’autre stars des vidéoclubs se sont donnés rendez-vous chez Stallone pour faire vibre notre fibre de fans de films d’action des 80′s. Côté casting, si il manque Van Damme (un scénario pas assez bien ?) , Chuck Norris (parce qu’il les aurait tous éclaté ?) Et Steven Seagle (plus préoccupé par jouer de la Machete), il y a donc de quoi prendre bien son pied avec des scènes de bastons que l’on attendait depuis un bout de temps pour savoir qui a la plus grosse … musculature. Inutile de chercher un scénario, on va juste mixer un peu ce qu’on faisait à l’époque. Bon, sur le papier, c’est sympa et on sait à quoi s’attendre, mais le problème, c’est qu’un film comme ça, c’était bien dans les années 80, avec la nostalgie qu’on aurait en le regardant aujourd’hui. Weekend Box Office: Expendables Explodes. Proving once again that films aimed at older audiences have theoretically stronger legs than those aimed at teens, The Expendables and Eat Pray Love both had strong weekend multipliers and both performed at or above realistic expectations.

Weekend Box Office: Expendables Explodes

With all the hub-bub regarding 'the guy movie vs. the chick flick', both films posted exceptional opening weekends and both respective marketing teams should be commended. As for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, its frontloaded and underwhelming debut proves that geek cultures is not mainstream culture, and that hardcore geek interest should not be mistaken for mainstream interest. With films like that, the only real victory should be the fact that it got made and released.

Anyway, here we go... The Expendables ended the weekend with $34.8 million, giving it a decent 2.6x weekend multiplier. The film also scored the best opening weekend for writer/director/star Sylvester Stallone, topping the $33.4 million debut of Spy Kids 3D: Game Over. 'The Expendables' Leads Monday's Box Office.

Why Seagal and Van Damme Snubbed Sly! Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme didn’t have enough of a sense of humor for The Expendables!

Why Seagal and Van Damme Snubbed Sly!

We were wondering what was up with Seagal and Van Damme. It didn’t make sense to us that they would pass up on a possibility to actually be in a theatrically released film. Seemed bizarre. Here’s what Sylvester Stallone has said on the subject: "I wanted to set Jean-Claude against Jet Li, but he didn't want to lose to Jet. Wahhh, we’re Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme and we don’t think it would be funny for us to lose in a fight on the big screen, wahhh. Was this really the reason you guys bailed on the movie? Steven: Keep up the wonderful work with that reality cop show. Jean-Claude: We’ll eagerly anticipate the next inevitable installment of the Universal Soldier franchise. Do U think Seagal and Van Damme should have done The Expendables?
