AICN presents Sylvester Stallone hitting it hard for THE EXPENDABLES!

Hey folks, Harry here... On my way to the Texas Filmmaker's Hall of Fame today, I got a call from Stallone. He was giddy I tell ya. A real good mood. He's excited about Stone Cold Steve Austin being set as a baddie that's gonna beat the living hell out of Sly! He's also got John Herzfeld recording all the psychotic lunacy that's going into the making of this gargantuan monstrosity that's being spilled out of Stallone's noodle! While playing around with a bit of work out footage of Stallone hitting it real hard with weights - he decided that his buddies in Talkback deserved a look at how Stallone was getting chiseled. So, without further ado, here's the man sweating and glistening... WARNING...this a quicktime file. MicroSoft users will likely have problems if Quicktime is not installed.

    What the…?! Got the latest Flash Player, and it doesn't work. Got an alternate link? Thx.

    Thanks Harry, but

    is there any way to maybe get a YouTube version of this? Flash player isn't installed on my computer and the link to download it is a broken link. I'm only mentioning this because I don't think I'm the only one with the problem.....

    Note to Sly --

    by The-Warrior

    Lose the Get Carter-esque, ball-tickling goatee. Either go full on Nighthawks with the beard or 86 the thing altogether. Other than that, keep punching, champ. Oh yeah, and Rocky Balboa officially makes up for every douche-chill inducing moment of Rocky V. Well played, amigo. I remain, The Warrior. See you in Hell.

    This is B.S.

    by 2dope

    Does Sly know he is making EVERY other guy in the world look like a bunch of fuckin' chumps? That cat has got to be the hardest working SOB in the business. My hat's off to him. Now he needs to make an Apatow film with Jonah Hill and Paul Rudd. They could call it 'Two smart-asses who get the shit kicked out of them by a 62 year-old man.' I would pay to see that.

    Skipping at The Start...

    by CanYouFlySucka

    A little bit gay. other than that, this is hardcore shit, pretty intense for a guy his age. I SAID IT. My dad is the same age as Sly and has to get up four times a night to piss. Then again, my dad isn't roided out of his gourd.

    by TheRealMikeJames

    This is so not cool news!! Can someone please explain to me why this is cool...I love this site, I check it on a regular basis. Harry has really outdone himself this time. I guess we will get some real cool news when Sly stops doing squats on Harry's face.

    my computer is from 1936 and it played the clip fine. You guys are just lazy. Ironic considering you're probably a quarter of Stallone's age and can't be bothered click a button to download a program.

    The guy looks fackin' incredible! THE EXPENDABLES will rock. Can't wait.

    by Turd Furgeson

    You got some balls Sly, TB'ers are going to have a field day with this. keep the fun movies coming. We need them in this crazy world right now.

  • March 13, 2009, 11:28 a.m. CST

    I can't possibly love Sly anymore!!!

    by StraightToHell

    And I mean that in the geekest sense of the word. Sly, if you're reading this, you are one of my idols. Love your movies, love you life and what you made of it. Can't tell you how happy I was that you came back from the wilderness swinging with Rocky Balboa and Rambo. Both spectacular films, worhty of their respective history. I can't wait for your new one. Looks awesome. Death Race 2000, The Rocky and Rambo series, Nighthawks, Cobra (superb 80s action), Tango and Cash (another perfect 80s action flick), Oscar (screw the haters, this was hilarious), Cliffhanger, Demolition Man, Cop Land, are all classics. Even some of the lesser efforts are great just by the virtue of you being in them. Hell, Over the Top is grade A 80s cheese. You're still in unbelievable physical shape. Above all, inspire me with your drive and your eternal optimism in the face of all odds. AND, you give the best DVD commentaries. Just listened to the one for the first Rocky and damn near cried at the end. Just beautiful stuff. And funny as all hell too. You'll always have my devotion, love and the dollar at the box office and on DVDs. Best wishes!!!

    speaking of Nighthawks

    by StraightToHell

    Sly, what's up with the Special Edition of this movie? Where is the fucking DVD already? We get super duper special editions of movies nobody wanted in the first place, like Howard the Duck, and when it comes to Nighthawks all we have is a crap transfer DVD that's not even in widescreen format? Is there someone we can call about this? This is a classic. Sly with the facial hair, Billy Colt .45 Dee Williams and Rutger Hauer at his scariest best. NYC at it's seediest, just coming out of the 70s. Great suspense sequences, with one of the most shocking and unexpected endings ever. Can we at least get a commentary track from the three leads? All of you fuckers are still alive and (thank God) well. Is a documentary that much to ask for? We all know that the first director got fired, so it ain't like there aren't any cool stories to tell. Throw us a bone Sly. You know everyone on this site will be drop $$$ for the SE DVD. This is a win/win situation for everyone involded. Please, talk to somebody and make it happen.

    by BLEST

    He pays the DP to trash Bale's scene.<p>So Bale can be all, "da da da, and how was it!?!"<p>And then 62 year old Sly can slap him with his genitals, causing a concussion. <p>Now, THAT's professional.

    STALLONE in a class all by himself...Arnold should take hede...

    by ABking

    Stallone, you are one funny dude giving Harry a dance audition for Justin Timberlake's next video LOL...But for real, you are a class act all by yourself. You make 30 year olds look like pussies with how cut and gigantic you still are. Fuck, you make Schwarzenegger look plain right now! THE EXPENDABLES is going to gross an easy 100 million domestic and over 300 million worldwide. Maybe leaving you with a new franchise. Sly, get Schwarzenegger in tip top shape for CONAN and TRUE LIES 2. And do all us fans a HUGE favor...PLEASE for the love of god...get Arnold to chew a cigar, wear military fatigues and hold a huge gat gun (ala PREDATOR) for his cameo role in THE EXPENDABLES!!! Even if the oak's cameo is only 2 minutes on screen, the fans deserve an ICONIC cameo with this being you guys first team up action film (with a few more to come hopefully). Arnie recently said at THE ARNOLD CLASSICS that his cameo will be a "blink and you'll miss it" walk by in THE EXPENDABLES. That is the worst idea ever! An iconic cameo would work best. Even if it's like that arm wrestle scene at the beginning of PREDATOR with Carl Weathers. Come on, talk Arnie into it! We all know you two are best friends now! By the way, keep RAMBO in America for RAMBO V and make it like CASINO ROYAL meets TRUE LIES meets FIRST BLOOD!

    is NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!!!! Are you really Tom Arnold?? I would love the Oak to do another CONAN, but that's not going to happen either.

    Oh, for God's sake, he's casting wrestlers now?

    by JackPumpkinhead

    That neanderthal Statham was bad enough, but now THIS creature was asked to join, too? <p> <p> Kick out the damn wrestler(s) and concentrate on blackmailing Ahnold to do that presidential cameo.

    by logicalnoise01

    steve austin has about 15 years more acting experience than statham and he actually was pretty bad ass in that battle royale ripoff.

  • March 13, 2009, 12:15 p.m. CST


    by phoenixmagida5th

    As opposed the great casting QT has done by casting another director in a lead role. At least stalone picked someone with actual acting ability un like that no talent Roth

  • March 13, 2009, 12:15 p.m. CST


    by snicklefritz

    Nah, just kidding. Stallone is seriously my hero. Rocky Balboa and Rambo have made up for any possible shit movie made in the past. Is it too much to ask for a sequel to Stop or My Mom will Shoot!...I mean Tango and Cash.

  • March 13, 2009, 12:16 p.m. CST

    Sly is the man.

    by bigbaldpapa

    Hands down. Look at the man. Age is not a factor. He is kicking some serious ass. I would love to be on one of his sets to see how his ass-kickery gets done.

  • March 13, 2009, 12:21 p.m. CST

    He looks plastic

    by BillboeFett

    That early shot of his legs... I thought they were fakes or something at first. Is he wearing makeup also? Anyways... I'm comparing my workout to his... guess I should be grunting alot more!

  • March 13, 2009, 12:28 p.m. CST

    Nope, I ain't TOM ARNOLD...but TRUE LIES 2 will...

    by ABking

    ...get looked at again by Fox! I want a TRUE LIES 2 more than Tom Arnold LOL! Hey, never say never in Hollywood. SPEED 3 was talked about a few months ago and you never thought that was possible. Plus the TRUE LIES SPECIAL EDITION hasn't come out yet. And when it does come out, it will definetly have commentary by Cameron or Arnie and that could spark renewed interest like Harrison Ford wanting to work with Spielberg on something fun (ie INDY 4). Thats how I see it. Fox also loves to whore out possible money making films, and TRUE LIES 2 would make serious dough at the box-office. Even if Arnie and Jamie Lee Curtis are much older, the sequel is sure to be a 4 quadrum event action film. And Elisha Dushku is now older and hot for the younger audience. Lets put it this way, until I hear a recent comment from James Cameron himself saying there will never be a TRUE LIES 2...period...I'll never stop pumping the idea! Back to THE EXPENDABLES...this film is gonna own every action film next year:)

  • March 13, 2009, 12:30 p.m. CST

    I might actually do him now...

    tattoo popularity

    by BillboeFett

    will soon be figured out for what it is, and become boring and dated, and no longer "cool" or "controversial" or "cutting edge" or whatever people getting them think they are. Guys getting them think it makes them more macho/masculine/tougher, whereas girls getting them think it makes them more sexual/edgy/aggressive. So many people have them now, its like when everyone was wearing the dark black leather jackets, it gets old. When you see a mid to late 30s soccer mom wearing a leather jacket, its time to hang up yours.

    by ABking

    Sly didn't even bother to write out the ending to this BABY...he said THE EXPENDABLES will have ACTION THAT HAS NEVER BEEN PUT ON FILM. If that doesn't get you excited I don't know what will. After this we get RAMBO V. HOLY FUCK Sly is on a roll. ARNOLD needs to make T5, TRUE LIES 2 and KING CONAN just to compete...:)

    Sly - don't film Austin running

    by Movietool

    Just watched The Condemned and it was distracting how much Stone Cold looks like a toddler when he runs. Not Austin's fault - he has no knees left, clearly. <p> Otherwise, I think this is a great casting choice. Austin's Mack-truck physique is a great foil for the sort of "Rocky 4" look you're going for. Plus, Austin's a capable actor and plays a great heavy. Good get!

  • March 13, 2009, 1:26 p.m. CST

    I love Sly but it makes me wonder about HGH

    by heyscot

    He said something about how HGH was grossly misunderstood, I believe, awhile ago when he had to go through that legal problem with it for Rambo, and while I certainly respect Sly as an actor, I wonder what the way he talks about HGH and treats it as something that is okay to do--I wonder how that affects kids and how they view their bodies and what's okay and not okay to do to themselves.

  • March 13, 2009, 1:30 p.m. CST

    So Harry's written his review for this movie already huh?

    by SomaShine

    How do you do it Harry..Do you have Sly's cock in one hand and JJ Abaram's in the other? DOn't you ever get tired? Remember when this site actually said shit..and didn't sit on the floor waiting for Directors table scraps. I love backing this D list piece of shit is pretty much going to end this site.

    Sly needs to look up Eddie Guerrero ...I'm worried

    by Hollis_Mason

    I've love Sly since I was a kid, and have greatly enjoyed his comeback, but I'm scared to death for him. He needs to look up guys like Eddie Guerrero - I don't want to see Sly die of an enlarged heart and other organs.

  • March 13, 2009, 1:41 p.m. CST


    by heyscot

    The thing is, Sly's a gazillionaire. He can afford the best in health care. Your average person can't. So it could conceivably give him a leg up with using HGH. I mean yeah, he looks great. Who really knows how healthy he is? Plus Sly has been working out since he was young, so it's a way of life to him. At the same time, what message does he send to people who want to be strong like him and find out he's using HGH to help him get there?

  • March 13, 2009, 1:46 p.m. CST

    by VXXXJesterXXXV

    You're actually calling Sly a D lister? Either you missed Rambo and Rocky Balboa or you are not the type of person this site is for. I am fairly sure that most people here are looking forward to this movie and think it's going to kick much ass. Is this video a bit overboard? Sure, but Sly sent it to Harry so why the hell not post it. Hell I think it's cool that Sly actually goes out of his way to provide something like this, no matter how goofy, to AICN just because.

    Do a *little* research - you will get worried too. That stuff enlarges your internal organs, which is why it is illegal without prescription. However, there are tons of starstruck mark doctors out there who will prescribe wrestlers and celebs whatever they want. I just don't want Sly risking his health over the movies. You should also ask Vickie Guererro how much fun life is with the love of your life gone and having three kids who no longer have a dad.

    Sly, God Bless ya brother for being so great to Harry!

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    I've known Harry for about 10 years, and he's been very good to me and my friends who moved from Louisville to Austin. Harry is the real deal in the world of film fandom. I've had a tough year and got very depressed recently and Harry wrote me a very nice letter that really cheered me up. He told me he was in the middle of taking care of some problems in his own life when he got "interupted" by a call from you about "The Expendables." I just think it's amazingly cool that you're reaching out to the fans through Harry, who kind of represents all of us at our most passionate when it comes to loving film. I see the hard work is paying off and I hope the movie rocks! Bless ya!

    Stallone is no dummy

    by ABking

    HGH or not, Sly is not dumb and would not risk his health for films. You guys talk like you are in the mans brain and know what he knows. If it doesn't worry Sly, be silent. With the way Sly is working out for THE EXPENDABLES, I wonder if his ROCKY 4 look is going to be seen throughout the film. He didn't want Rambo shirtless in part 4 so will he do it for this film. I hope so because that is alot of hard gym work not to capture on film. Arnie needs to get monstrous like Sly if and when he plays CONAN again.

    Mack Bolan and Able Team/Phoenix Force

    by Omar B

    The more I hear about this movie the more excited I get. Plus it's got this really strong Mack "Exectutioner" Bolan and Phoenix Force vibe developing. Maybe it's because I've just read 7 of those books in a row (I'm obsessed now) or maybe it's because Sly actually had the movie rights to the character a while back. Anybody get that vibe?

    by ABking

    I can't believe after ROCKY BALBOA and RAMBO, Sly career is so red hot and now he has THE EXPENDABLES. If there is one movie star everyone should strive to be, it's CLINT EASTWOOD. The man directs all of his stuff and the best part is that his films are amazing and they make MILLIONS at the box-office. Who does that??? Now Stallone can follow those footprints left by fellow action man Clint. I tell you, Arnie was quoted as saying if it wasn't governor of CA, he would be directing his films. Fuck ya governor...come back as a filmmaker and direct CRUSADE yourself. Fuck Paul Verhoeven (though he is amazing)! Arnie should direct that medevil epic. Leave KING CONAN to Milius but maybe Arnie should direct TRUE LIES 2 as well and leave Cameron to do BATTLE ANGEL after AVATAR. Bring on RAMBO V as well Mr. Stallone...and bring John J. to American soil fighting a Hans Gruber style baddie with Mickey Rourke!

    Your wish seems limited by Arnold's physique these days. Stallone doesn't just make him look normal; anyone with a modicum of physical fitness makes Arnold look normal these days. Did you see that recent shot of his belly? Not that there's anything wrong with that - Arnold has been busy governing.

    SomaShine, DarthCorleone, Aquanetta...ABking SAY'S!

    by ABking

    SomaShine, do you really have one million dollars to give Harry Knowles? Because Harry isn't as bought as you may think. Just because Harry has a friendly relationship with Sly, Cameron, JJ and numerous other celebs, doesn't mean he'll praise everything to death they ever make in the future. By my count, these guys have all made solid work for their last couple of films, so if Harry did give their work 5/5 stars and glowing reviews, good for him. Soma, are you sure you're not a jealous website guy from CHUD.COM or someplace hating on Knowles because his site is a huge Hollywood powerhouse for stuido's and moviestars? Maybe you need some pussy juice! To DarthCorleone, can you friggin read or are you really that glib!!! I already admitted in a message above that Stallone will make Arnie want to hit the gym harder these days by the way Sly is cut and built like a crazy ape. Remember, this is coming from a devoted Schwarzenegger fan...myself. I can admit things like this, but don't count Arnie out because if he does eventually make KING CONAN, you bet your ass he'll pump up bigger than he was in TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES! His muscle memory is nuts! Oh...and Aquanetta, many fans still want TRUE LIES 2 to happen. So does Tom Arnold, go ask him! I can already tell all you talkbackers that THE EXPENDABLES is going to get 10/10 stars and fuck up any film that dares open on it in 2010. Even SPIDER-MAN 4 and IRON MAN 2 would be afraid to open on THE EXPENDABLES...J/K:)

    by ABking

    RAMBO 4 was extremely VIOLENT because it was a realistic war film. You have to show the horrors of war especially in a place like Burma. With that said, when Sly makes RAMBO 5, it doesn't need to go so extreme since it will be a regular style action film ala DIE HARD, CLIFFHANGER, ERASER etc...I'm hoping Sly brings Rambo to the USA and makes a different kind of Rambo film. Imagine if Rambo gets caught up in a cat and mouse game with Mickey Rourke playing some smart yet tough Hans Gruber type baddie. Rambo blowing up cars, buildings, helicopters etc in a city would be great. It would be hard R violence but not the crazy war violence of part 4. This leads to THE EXPENDABLES...with the all star cast of tough guys, Sly wrote himself into a corner with stating before that this film would be PG-13. It has to be hard R with these many tough guys. Plus, it will be a military film. G.I. JOE is a military film but it's more cartoon sci-fi where THE EXPENDABLES is fictional war. Still, the body count has to be huge in Sly's film. In the end, Sly has brought the action genre back single handedly.

    Re: Nobody's Waiting For True Lies 2

    by Acquanetta

    Abking, I don't mean that fans wouldn't still welcome it. But there's a big difference between that and actually expecting it to happen. Arnold loves his political career, and doesn't view it as a sideline from movies. He's not just biding his time until he can come back and make sequels to films from 20 or 30 years ago. I would personally love to see him make Conan the King, but that ship unfortunately sailed when he won his re-election. He's more likely to run for Senate in 2010 than jump into pre-production on a sequel to a movie from 1994.

    I know ARNOLD is all about his political career now, but he still has the hollywod bug and when he sees friends like CLINT, SLY, CAMERON and BRUCE making all sorts of awesome movies rest assured he will want back in on the game. He would have been away from films for almost a decade. TRUE LIES 2 is a perfect sequel to make in my book.

    by ABking

    Sylvester Stallone should be given a medal for bringing some light to the BURMA situation. By realistic I mean that he didn't shy away from rape and child killings along with how the poeple are treated. I didn't mean Rambo being able to out-run a nuke like blast and survive or killing over 200 people single handedly etc. ;) ALL the Rambo's had something to say...VIETNAM, AFGANISTAN and how vets were treated coming back from WAR in FIRST BLOOD.

    THE EXPENDABLES - Arnie says "But to talk about Sly's movie you know Sly and I we became very good friends over the last 10, 15 years, especially since the Planet Hollywood days. And we've traveled all around the world. and we've had a terrific time and so he was very helpful to me when I ran for governor. Or with any of the initiatives that were on ballot, he came to fundraising in different places and he was always there to pump up the people and all that. So I... naturally when he asked me if I would do a cameo, which will just be something quick, like I walk out of a hotel or out of a office building and he will walk up and we will bump into each other and there will be some mumbling and then we will walk off (crowd laughs). So it will be something very simple, that will be again, just a cameo, so that's what we're going to do. I promised him I'd do that and I'm looking forward to that".......TRUE LIES 2 - January 20, 2009, Tom Arnold was asked "Will there ever be a "True Lies" sequel"? "If all goes as planned, the day Arnold (Schwarzenegger) leaves office we will again team with Jim Cameron and do a comedy. Jim says it might not be called "True Lies II," but it will be fun.".........KING CONAN - November 12, 2008, When I asked Avi Lerner who he was hoping to get to play Conan, he said, "To be honest, we're looking for a younger Arnold Schwarzenegger, someone we could sign to a three- or four-picture deal, because I see this as a real long-term franchise." Did he ever approach the governor about the part? "I saw Arnold in Las Vegas at the premiere of 'Rambo,' " Lerner says. "He said, 'Wait two years for me--I'll be coming back.' But I can't wait that long." Lerner says he offered Schwarzenegger $1 million just to do a one-day cameo in the picture. "I told him we could even shoot the scene in Sacramento," Lerner recalls. "He was smiling, but he didn't say yes. Maybe he can't take the money while he's still governor. That's OK, if he can't take the money, I'd donate it to a charity or give it to a school that needs the money." Lerner laughs. "Don't worry--I'll approach him again. I don't give up that easily."

    ABKing, ok now I see

    by Muki

    what you mean. And I agree that one of the great things about the Rambo movies is that despite the ultra-violence, they all had something to say. That’s what’s missing from action movies today – they’re just guns and explosions but with no bigger picture, no context and so ultimately they come off as vapid, meaningless and instantly forgettable (Vin Diesel and Jason Statham I’m looking at you). And I agree that it was an admirable effort by Sly to try and bring some attention in the west to the ongoing situation in Burma (officially the Union of Myanmar) Feels like we should be doing something about that doesn’t it otherwise Sly’s efforts have been for nothing. Have you ever been to Burma?

  • March 14, 2009, 12:35 p.m. CST

    Never been to BURMA...

    by ABking

    ...but by the way it looks, it would be life and death to try to go over there...for now. I like that Sly delivers messages in the RAMBO films without beating you over the head. I remember watching that Steven Seagal oil action film in the 90's and it kept beating the message over audiences heads by the end. Arnie could make a great action film and message movie with CRUSADE.

    I thought when the Commando SE came out, it would have had tons of deleated scenes fleshing out the entire story. The director should have also cut the fake dummies exploding next to the building at the end and pull a George Lucas and erase the wire mistakes. Over all, Commando is a kick ass 80's action film. Too bad Arnie didn't make a sequel in the 90's.
