The first trailer of explosive autumn action movie Escape Plan was released this week. The futuristic prison break film stars legends of the action genre Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the latter of whom has only just returned to cinema screens after a period in politics as governor of California.
Stallone plays Ray Breslin, a man who helps design maximum security prisons, making them escape proof. Unfortunately, and perhaps ironically, he has ended up incarcerated inside one of his own prisons; trapped by his own creation! It goes without saying he’s got great chances of escaping, but not without a little help from his friends. Enter Schwarzenegger, looking in great physical shape (the same goes for Stallone for that matter) and sporting a rather unsavoury goatee. The action duo team up to pull together the ultimate breakout.
As you can see, the trailer looks great. Lots of exciting action sequences, and of course the mandatory quips about age, recognition, and general tough guy-ness that have been a recent staple of The Expendables movies. Escape Plan co-stars Jim Caviezel, Vinnie Jones, and 50 Cent, and will mark Stallone and Schwarzenegger’s first film together where both play a main character. This one is set to be a historic moment for all action movie fans.
Be sure to check out the trailer above and see what all the well deserved hype is about!
