It’s like bad trailer day or something. First it was the terrible Gulliver’s
Travels
trailer
and now there’s a rotten, lying trailer for style="font-style: italic;"> style="font-weight: bold;">The Expendables.

First
of all, this trailer is weird because it feels like a teaser – it has
no footage from the film. There was already a trailer with footage, so
where did it all go? Second, that whole crow and the skull motif make it
look like a very expensive ad for a SyFy Channel marathon of The Stand (there
was one this past weekend!).

But worst of all, it essentially
lies, pretending that Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger have roles
that are more than cameos. They’re billed second and third, which is crazy. Anyone watching this trailer
would be forgiven for thinking Bruce and Arnie team up with Sly Stallone
to shoot bad guys, and then would be really disappointed when it turns
out that Sly teams up with a bunch of direct to DVD types. And Jason
Statham.
