The Expendables are back and this time it is personal! The biggest action-adventure superstars from around the world reunite in the next chapter of The Expendables franchise, The Expendables 2, exploding into homes on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy plus UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy plus UV), Digital Download, On Demand and Pay-Per-View November 20 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.A sequel to the huge box office hit, co-screenwriter and star Sylvester Stallone, takes fans on another intense adventure with his rogue team of misfits. Reunited for what they think should be a quick, in-and-out mission, this tight-knit band of old-school mercenaries are about to find themselves at the brink of global disaster and are driven to make this mission personal.

 

In addition to Sylvester Stallone, The Expendables 2 features an all-star team of the most bad-ass classic action stars of all time including Jason Statham (Safe, The Transporter), Jet Li (Hero, Romeo Must Die), Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV, Universal Soldier), Terry Crews (Terminator Salvation, Gamer), Randy Couture (Setup) with Bruce Willis (Die Hard) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator, Total Recall) and newest cast members Chuck Norris (TV's "Walker, Texas Ranger," The Delta Force), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum) also Jean-Claude Van Damme (Double Impact, Timecop) and the first female Expendable Yu Nan (In Love We Trust). Based on characters created by David Callaham; story by Ken Kaufman & David Agosto and Richard Wenk; with a screenplay by Richard Wenk and Sylvester Stallone; directed by Simon West.

 

The action-packed Blu-ray Disc and DVD are filled with kick-ass bonus features including behind-the-scenes featurettes along with audio commentary with the director, a gag reel and deleted scenes.The Expendables 2 Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.

 

The Expendables are back in a sequel that Steve Weintraub of COLLIDER calls "bigger, badder and better than the first one!" The team signs on for a mission that looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries.   But things go wrong fast and one of their own is killed by a psychotic terrorist for hire.  Hell-bent on payback, they cut a swath of destruction through enemy territory and wreak havoc upon their opponents. In the midst of the mayhem, they must also shut down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - prevent five tons of weapons-grade plutonium from falling into the wrong hands.
