‘Escape Plan’ Trailer: Stallone and Schwarzenegger Break Out of Prison
The first ‘Escape Plan‘ trailer is here, and for fans of action icons Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, it’ll surely be the event of the year. But what about the rest of the world? Are regular people interested in watching these two aging titans attempt to break out of a maximum security prison?
‘Escape Plan’ tells the story of a famed prison architect (Stallone) who is framed for murder and sent to the world’s most secure prison — which he designed, of course. Naturally, he’s the one man in the world with a chance of escaping, but he’s going to need a little help from a few shady new friends, which is where Schwarzenegger comes in. In short, it doesn’t sound like a typical shoot ’em up from these guys.
The trailer is all about Stallone/Schwarzenegger, but ‘Escape Plan’ boasts a surprisingly robust supporting cast. Everyone’s favorite musclebound (and occasionally dialogue-challenged) stars will be backed up with the likes of Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Vinnie Jones, Sam Neil, Amy Ryan and even 50 Cent. It’s always a treat to watch Stallone and Schwarzenegger do their thing, but it’s even more of a treat when they’re surrounded by regular people who don’t blink an eye at being in the presence of these mumbling bodybuilders.
‘Escape Plan’ will break out of prison and into your local theater on October 18, 2013.
