Lionsgate is proud to announce the upcoming Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand release of The Expendables arriving on November 23rd.

The Expendables

The only life they've known is war.  The only loyalty they have is to each other.  This November, a powerhouse cast of action heroes comes together for the very first time as Lionsgate releases the action-thriller, The Expendables to Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack (three discs - including Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy). The film will also be available on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand.  Co-written and directed by Sylvester Stallone from a screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone and story by David Callaham, The Expendables follows a team of hardened mercenaries - including Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke - who are sent on what becomes a suicide mission to overthrow a ruthless dictator.  The film had an explosive impact on the box office, making it the #1 film in America two weeks running, and bringing in over $100 million.

Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and standard DVD come with compelling extras that pack a punch and bring the viewer into the action!  Each version includes newly produced supplements created in collaboration with director and star Sylvester Stallone and includes unprecedented making-of access as well as a deleted scene and gag reel, audio commentary with Sylvester Stallone and more!  Beyond the standard DVD, the Blu-ray Combo Pack includes three exclusive features - "Inferno," a feature-length behind-the-scenes documentary that provides a unique perspective on the filmmaking process from Stallone's distinctive point of view; "Comic Con 2010," the entire Expendables panel, featuring Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Steve Austin, from their visit to this year's San Diego Comic Con and "Ultimate Recon Mode" where Stallone and the other Expendables provide a multi-layered, all-access look at the making of the film as it runs. 

They are the Expendables:  leader and mastermind Barney Ross (Stallone), former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Couture) and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Lundgren).  Living life in the fringes of the law, these hardened mercenaries take on what appears to be a routine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to infiltrate the South American country of Vilena and overthrow its ruthless dictator General Garza (David Zayas).  But when their job is revealed to be a suicide mission, the men are faced with a deadly choice, one that might redeem their souls...or destroy their brotherhood forever.

Pricing: Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack $39.99

I'll grab this since I want that "Inferno" documentary, but I'm saddened we don't get the Directors cut that Stallone has been Tweeting about.  Posted Image

I know! I remember the guy who was in charge of the Rambo Extended Cut said that unlike Rambo, the Director's Cut of the Expendables would be released at the same time. I'm going to hold out till something concrete comes in.

Call me cynical but the director's cut sounds like a great way for Lion's Gate to make fans rebuy the movie when The Expendables 2 comes out.

No Director's Cut = No Sale.

I hate how I have to check this type of stuff before every blu-ray purchase.
