There is no rational explanation for my love of The Expendables. I tend to hate action films but The Expendables is just good, mindless entertainment. And so I love it. A lot.

This brings me to The Expendables 2, which hits theaters on August 17. I’m excited. It’s going to great. The latest trailer for The Expendables 2 is a glorious wonder filled with explosions, machine guns, and ridiculous dialogue. (What’s that Sly? A lucky ring? I hope it isn’t like Alaric’s ring on The Vampire Diaries because that wouldn’t be good.) Liam Hemsworth joins the cast, though I don’t know if he adds to anything to movie. But I don’t really care because every other star (Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van-Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger) will probably overshadow his presence.

Anyways, I have made a list of 15 (awesome) things about The Expendables 2 we should take away from this latest trailer. Enjoy.

1. There is hand gliding.

2. Sylvester Stallone’s plastic surgery has held up.

3. Liam Hemsworth wears a hat and it should not be confused with any hats he may wear in Catching Fire or Mockingjay.

4. Arnold is back and doing what he does best, saying that he’s back while casually smoking a cigar. Glad he was let out of the home for this one.

5. There are small explosions.

6. There is a woman. She is not be confused with Jet Li.

7. They borrow Captain America’s airplane and wear stylish coats.

8. There are big explosions.

9. Liam Hemsworth wears a sweater that he borrowed from Miley.

10. Arnold and Bruce actually get to do something.

11. And that is support the green initiative by driving electric cars while firing machine guns.

12. There is a manly forearm bump.

13. There are these guys.

14. And these guys.

15. Plus there are (I think) tanks with names that double as clever advertising.

And that’s all we really need to know about The Expendables 2. August 17 is going to be a fantastic day.
