Fans of classic ’80s action films know the masters of over-the-top movie machismo are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. It’s been a dream for years to see the two stars team up. Sure, they were both featured in the recent Expendables films, but those were ensemble films at their heart. There were rumors a few years back about the two starring in a movie called The Tomb, and it turns out they were true — only now the film is named Escape Plan.
In the trailer above, Stallone is an expert escape artist who gets paid to break out of prisons. But he bites off more than he can chew with his next job, which is at a fortress of a prison. It’s completely off the grid and filled with mysterious masked guards. He encounters Schwarzenegger’s character — who’s sporting a sweet beard — and the two form an alliance in order to break out. It’s great to see the two legends trading one-liners and causing explosions together, and I can’t wait to see this movie when it comes to theaters on October 18th.
By the way, it should be mentioned that the film co-stars Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent. Will Arnold and Sly find him in the club? Will there be blood on the sand by the end of the movie? I just hope he doesn’t take them to the candy shop! I’ll be here all week, folks.
