Stallone, Statham and Schwarzenegger Highlight Star-Studded Evening at The Expendables' Las Vegas Premiere
Red carpet notables included cast members Sylvester Stallone (with wife and daughters in tow), Jason Statham, Randy Couture, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Charisma Carpenter, Dolph Lundgren, Giselle Itie, and Governor Schwarzenegger himself, who bypassed the carpet, much to the dismay of the crowd. We're told he went straight to hotspot Koi for dinner, where he was later joined by Stallone. Additional appearances included Young MC (who, appropriately, emceed the screening), Peepshow's Holly Madison, Tommy "Tiny" Lister and Eclipse and New Moon's Daniel Cudmore.
The film, which opens nationwide today, features a hardened team of mercenaries on a mission to overthrow a corrupt dictator on a South American island. While the plot (shoot, fight, kill, blow things up, repeat) is thin to non-existent, the star-studded cast and exceptional special effects will surely draw a big crowd at the box office.
Inside the invite-only after party, select movie-goers and celebs mingled to the sounds of not one, but two, DJs (too much is never enough for this film of "more, more, more") while noshing on coconut shrimp, mini empanadas and lobster quesadillas while sipping drinks like the Expendables Motherf***er, an electric blue play on a Long Island Iced Tea.
