In the intro to the The second Expendables' first theatrical trailer, Sylvester Stallone says the sequel is even harder than the original.

Considering Expendables 1 was a two-hour infomercial for blowing shit up, it was difficult to imagine what Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Norris, Crews, Van Damme, Hemsworth, Couture, Willis, and Schwarzenegger could possibly do to make number two testosteronier.

Then I passed out while watching this trailer and woke up with my fist through the wall of a burning strip club full of angry black bears wearing suicide vests armed to explode at the sight of chest hair and patriotism.

In theaters August 17.
