The first full-length trailer for The Expendables 2 is introduced by its star Sylvester Stallone. Released May 3, the footage offers a look at non-stop action in this follow-up adventure.

Opening with a dream team of action heroes ziplining into the jungle for a showdown with the enemy, the trailer sees nonstop explosions, gunfire and one-liners ensue.

This sequel returns with an even bigger cast assembled of action icons Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, as well as up-and-comer Jason Stratham and, new to the second installment, Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games).

Prepare to reload with quotable one-liners, like "Track ‘em, find ‘em, kill ‘em" from Stallone and "I'm back" and "My shoe is bigger than this car" by Schwarzenegger.

Van Damme plays the villain, who gets his hands on five tons of plutonium and hatches a plan to "change the balance of the world" 6- if he can get through the wall of muscle that is Stallone.

The Expendables 2 opens August 16-17 in North America, Russia and other markets, followed by August 22-24 in the UK and France, and worldwide through September.
