You really only need the one.
This weekend, The Expendables 2 arrives in theaters, directed by Con Air's Simon West. From what I've heard, the action in this movie doesn't look like it was shot on a trampoline in a dryer afflicted with Parkinson's. If true, that's a step up from the last film. But why plunk down cash to endure Sylvester Stallone's latest HGH-infused epic, as full of sweaty retirees and '80s action cliches as Stallone's syringe is full of hormones, botox, and ground beef? Just wait until January, when Jee-woon Kim, the director of South Korea's batshit action film The Good, The Bad, The Weird combines Luis Guzman, Peter Stormare, Johnny Knoxville, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as a small-town Southern sherriff.
Schwarzenegger as a down-home, good-old-boy, gettin'-too-old-for-this-shit Southern sherriff, and Johnny Knoxville as Rob Schneider. It's real. It's spectacular. It's coming to theaters in January, 2013.
