The Box Office Proves To Be Expendable

ExpendablesA crush of new films — led by The Expendables 2 — opened on the softer side as the dog days of August gripped the North American box office. Expendables 2 easily topped the box office with $28.8 million, but came in $6 million behind The Expendables, which debuted to $34.8 million on the same weekend in 2010.

The sequel has even more star power, with the original team of Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews being joined by Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth to its lineup. Additionally, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cameo in the first film has been expanded in this one.
