The Expendables 2

This makes us so, so happy.

Over on IGN today, the full trailer for The Expendables 2 has landed with a bang - and for any fans of pure action cinema, it looks absolutely brilliant.

There are so many moments in this promo that have us ridiculously excited, not least that glorious moment when Arnie announces his return. It's good to see you again, big fella. In all seriousness, this film looks like a ludicrous amount of fun, and we absolutely cannot wait for this one.

Helmed by Con Air director Simon West, the sequel to the action ensemble stars Stallone, Arnie and Willis, as well as Jean Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Liam Hemsworth, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and the mighty Jason Statham. We can't wait to see if Sly and friends get it right this time, and we would imagine that with that cast list there might be a few action scenes to keep us interested.

The Expendables 2 is released on August the 17th.
