I really wish these two would have been making movies together 25 years ago instead of opening restaurants. Just think of the possibilities of an in their prime Arny and Sly battle royal… I’ll wait while you ponder that…. Take your time.

What an amazing prospect, right? The new movies these two have been pumping out the last couple years are some of the better action films in the recent past. Mr. Stallone’s ‘Bullet to the Head’ and Mr. Schwarzenegger’s ‘The Last Stand’ are great bits of action. And I am a fan of the Expendable series. I really enjoyed seeing them shoot it out at the end of the sequel. It was a lifelong fantasy come true.

Now that fantasy has been turned up to eleven. The official movie synopsis reads like this: “One of the world’s foremost authorities on structural security agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called “The Tomb.” Deceived and wrongly imprisoned, Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built.”

This trailer makes me very happy. It’s what I wanted to see in the 80’s. Granted they are a bit older (Arnold will be 66 next month and Sly turns 67 in a few days) but they still are in better shape than men a third their age and they just have that certain movie star gravitas. They are men of action. They are awesome and I can’t wait to see this on the big screen in October.
