‘The Expendables’ Fire Upon Blu-ray This Nov.!

One of my favorite moments at Comic-Con was undoubtedly when I got to see my childhood hero, Sylvester Stallone, promote his newest film, The Expendables, to the 6,000+ packed and captivated audience in Hall H (see here).  Well, it gives me great happiness in sharing the press release I received from Lionsgate in my inbox today.  Without further ado…your wait for The Expendables on Blu-ray is almost over.  The balls-to-the-wall title has been given a green light for a November 23rd Blu-ray release date. Check out the full press release below for more info and pre-order your Blu-ray today!

The only life they’ve known is war.  The only loyalty they have is to each other. This November, a powerhouse cast of action heroes comes together for the very first time as Lionsgate releases the action-thriller, The Expendables to Blu-ray Disc Combo Pack (three discs – including Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy). The film will also be available on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand.  Co-written and directed by Sylvester Stallone from a screenplay by David Callaham and Sylvester Stallone and story by David Callaham, The Expendables follows a team of hardened mercenaries – including Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke – who are sent on what becomes a suicide mission to overthrow a ruthless dictator.  The film had an explosive impact on the box office, making it the #1 film in America two weeks running, and bringing in over $100 million.

Both the Blu-ray Combo Pack and standard DVD come with compelling extras that pack a punch and bring the viewer into the action!  Each version includes newly produced supplements created in collaboration with director and star Sylvester Stallone and includes unprecedented making-of access as well as a deleted scene and gag reel, audio commentary with Sylvester Stallone and more!  Beyond the standard DVD, the Blu-ray Combo Pack includes three exclusive features – “Inferno,” a feature-length behind-the-scenes documentary that provides a unique perspective on the filmmaking process from Stallone’s distinctive point of view; “Comic Con 2010,” the entire Expendables panel, featuring Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Steve Austin, from their visit to this year’s San Diego Comic Con and “Ultimate Recon Mode” where Stallone and the other Expendables provide a multi-layered, all-access look at the making of the film as it runs.

They are the Expendables:  leader and mastermind Barney Ross (Stallone), former SAS blade expert Lee Christmas (Statham), hand-to-hand combat specialist Yin Yang (Li), long barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar (Crews), demolitions expert Toll Road (Couture) and precision sniper Gunner Jensen (Lundgren).  Living life in the fringes of the law, these hardened mercenaries take on what appears to be a routine assignment: a covert, CIA-funded operation to infiltrate the South American country of Vilena and overthrow its ruthless dictator General Garza (David Zayas).  But when their job is revealed to be a suicide mission, the men are faced with a deadly choice, one that might redeem their souls…or destroy their brotherhood forever.


ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).

    I’m on fence…Sly is currently working on the director’s cut, so I may wait for that one instead of double dipping. We’ll see.

    I’m with you Gerard. I got burned on Rambo so I may wait for the director’s cut too.

  3. Brian White

    I’m all over this! I will double dip when the time comes! I CANNOT wait! You guys are crazy!

    I bet the documentary on making this film will be more interesting than the movie.

    I don’t know If I’d want to watch a longer cut of this flick, unless it just got rid of the boring hour leading up to the final battle, and that battle was longer. Or if it would mean that there would be more Terry Crews.

  5. Gerard Iribe

    I then realized that if the special features were different, just like Rambo, it would be worth it.

    I’m back in.

    Glad to have you back!
