The first trailer of explosive autumn action movie Escape Plan was released this week. The futuristic prison break out 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 he’s thrown into one of the prisons he has helped create, and he’s going to need some help getting out. Enter Schearzenegger, looking in physically good shape (they both are for that matter given their ages), and sporting a rather unsavoury goatee, teams up with Stallone to aid the breakout.
As you can see, the trailer looks great. Lots of exciting action sequences, and of course the recent mandatory quips about age, recognition and general tough guy-ness that The Expendables movies have thrusted upon us. 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, 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!
