We guarantee you that this new trailer for The Expendables 2 will leave you exhausted, sweating, and in need of a fine cigar. It's that good. See, the first Expendables movie promised a lot of things, but it failed to deliver. The story, the action, and acting were all a let down considering the muscle-bound talent attached to the project. Now, though, it looks like Sylvester Stallone and his crew of skull-cracking gym rats have discovered the error of their ways, which is why The Expendables 2 looks so damn fierce. 

Featuring Stallone, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Jason StathamTerry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, this movie easily has one of the best ensembles ever assembled on the screen. Between all of their combined careers, they have snapped countless necks, fired more ammunition than we used during the Invasion of Grenada, and spilled more Hollywood blood than a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. 

This trailer simply scratches us right where we itch. There are plenty of explosions and one-liners that remind us why these men are the heart and soul of every action movie that has come out over the past three decades. But the real highlight of the trailer comes from the quick glimpse of Schwarzenegger, fresh off of the greatest acting stint of his career: Governor of California. With two simple words, he elevates this trailer from fun to legendary. We won't spoil it here, just watch it for yourself. 

The Expendables 2 hits theaters on August 17.
