Cool Videos: Retro bootleg trailer for The Expendables 2 is '80's nostalgia at its best

Aug. 17, 2012by: Paul Shirey

I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but we've been kind of celebrating the old-school action resurgence that's been bubbling up this week with the release of THE EXPENDABLES 2. With the movie hitting theaters today, we have a really cool video to toss into the mix, which is a re-cut trailer for the film, featuring footage from both THE EXPENDABLES and THE EXPENDABLES 2, set to some big hair rock, and done in true '80's fashion by one of our own freelancers, Andrew Hegele.

Whether you grew up watching these films or discovered them later in life, there's no prerequisite for enjoying this beautifully chopped trip down '80's action memory lane except the desire to soak up some cool nostalgia.

Insert tape. Rewind. Press Play:

THE EXPENDABLES 2 is currently blowing shit up and waxing poetic cheese at a theater near you.

The Protector with Jackie Chan. Just look at this thing. The music is what makes it.

Is this North Korean Blu-Ray? I love how Statham blew up when Stallone elbow-bumped him in the plane. Still better than most trailers today!

AWESOME! that should have been the official trailer!! Iove the poster by Justin Reed. I bought a couple on posters.com. Only problem is I tried to contact him to get a painting but he never contacts you back. :(

Only thing these movies are missing.

Is a dedicated eighties specific soundtrack.
I mean I guess the Director's Cut of the first movie had that Shinedown - Diamond Eyes track (referenced again in the sequel). But it didn't seem retro enough.
Bloody good fan trailer though.
