The first trailer for the Stallone and Schwarzenegger starring action thriller, Escape Plan, has finally dropped. Coming off like an old school 80’s or 90’s action flick, while the trailer may be a bit naff and a bit cheesy, it does appear to be a lot of fun.
I am still upset at the bad response Arnie’s The Last Stand received, so hopefully seeing both Arnie and Stallone together with no other Expendables in sight, just might give them the final break they so deserve. Both actors have still got it in the action stakes, and they are legends for heaven’s sake, so I really truly hope this is a success for them.
Films can be so serious these days, so it is always nice to switch the old brain off and just have some fun, right?
The film is directed by Mikael Hafstrom, and has been written by Miles Chapman and Jason Keller. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger will be joined by Vincent D’Onofrio, Jim Caviezel, Vinnie Jones, Sam Niell, 50 Cent, Amy Ryan, Caitriona Balfe and Faran Tahir.
Escape Plan arrives in UK cinemas September 27th.
Escape Plan follows Ray Breslin (Stallone) who is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. He’s analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray’s ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he’s ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design.
Schwarzenegger, in the role of Church, plays a complex inmate with multiple shades of grey. He’s the guy who fights to keep the prisoners from losing their humanity in their darkest hour as they struggle together to stay alive.
