I love the fat kid with the sunglasses in the back. That would have been me at that age. Except I was less Asian.
Spring, era jävlar!

From what I understand one or all of them is/are superstar(s) in Japan... Love the Japs but they can be so creepy sometimes!

Interesting:
Those tastes don’t always line up perfectly with American moviegoers’ preferences. Visually spectacular, effects-heavy action films based on globally recognized properties, such as superhero films or the Transformers franchise, tend to perform strongly in China, whereas films like Jack the Giant Slayer, Oz the Great and Powerful, and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which may be less culturally resonant with Chinese audiences, have fared less well. Sometimes, though, there are surprises that can be learned from, as in the case of The Expendables, which proved a sizable hit in China. “They marketed The Expendables as a family film there,” says Oblivion executive producer Jesse Berger. “You think, ‘A family film? That doesn’t make sense.’ But they did 15 different trailers that were targeted to different people: young and old, men and women. There was a kids’ version and a version for people who were Dolph Lundgren and Stallone fans.”

The best and funniest summary I've ever seen : http://www.vodkaster.com/Films/Expendab ... e-speciale

This is the story of an American, a black, a flanged, a British,a Swedish and a Chuck Norris who fuck a Belgian. Result: 2000 deaths.

I really expected EX2 to be a bigger hit for Dolph... but it almost feels like he's received zero boost from the film even though it did very well overseas... and had a comfortable gross here in the U.S. Hopefully the T.V. stuff he's working on gives him a much needed lift.

After Jason Statham, it's up to Dolph to get his SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE figure from ART FIGURES (not yet available)

The face does have great detail, but Gunnar's expression looks like he's constipated more than anything else!
