Dolph Lundgren has been the consummate action star since the 1980s, when he burst onto the film scene in the Bond flick, "A View to a Kill," before playing Rocky's Russian nemesis Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV" and He-Man in "Masters of the Universe."
He took on a different-than-usual challenge recently, playing the famous psychologist Dr. Sage Mennox in the ensemble comedy-drama, "Small Apartments."
Lundgren talked briefly with NextMovie about black hair dye, being honest with yourself, and which cast member of "The Expendables" would pose a threat to him in a fight. Get More »
There have been a lot of cool stories to come out of Hollywood in the last couple of years, but for our money one of the coolest is the sudden and unexpected career resurgence of Dolph Lundgren, who came out of nowhere (aka Europe) to reclaim his action star title with his turn as the despicable Gunnar Jensen in 2010's "The Expendables."
Now, Lundgren is kicking it into even higher gear with "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning," which reunites him with his "Expendables 2" co-star Jean-Claude Van Damme for the sixth (!) installment of their long-running sci-fi series. Get More »
This week: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and more aging action heroes are back to blow things up in the explosive "The Expendables 2."
Also new this week is a collection of Quentin Tarantino movies handpicked by the filmmaker himself, the Blu-ray debut of 1975's "Zorro" starring Alain Delon and a Criterion Collection edition of the formerly maligned/recently praised 1980 Western "Heaven's Gate." Get More »
Steven Seagal is a man of many talents: International movie star, TV action hero, part-time law enforcer and full-time ass kicker. He even sings the blues and made the ponytail look manly.
In his newest action flick "Maximum Conviction" – coming to DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 6th – Seagal teams with "Stone Cold"' Steve Austin to battle a team of elite mercenaries after the transportation of two inmates goes awry. The movie is vintage Seagal, complete epic gun fights, explosions, witty puns and all the bone-crunching Aikido one can handle in 90 minutes.
Taking a pause from breaking necks and limbs, Steven took the time to sit down with us and discuss upcoming projects, his thoughts on "The Expendables" franchise (hint: he doesn't love it) and the odds that we'll ever refer to him as President Seagal. Get More »
"The Expendables 2" won the box office for the second weekend in a row with just $13.5 million, according to Film.com, thanks mostly to one of the weakest crop of new releases in recent memory.
Just how bad was it? Not one of the new releases managed to make even $7 million, allowing "The Bourne Legacy" to earn second spot with only $9.3 million. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Premium Rush," Kristen Bell's "Hit and Run" and Ashley Greene's "The Apparition" were among the new films that crashed and burned.

Ready For Action? And we mean that kind of "action."
Forget the all-female riff on "The Expendables" that's apparently now in development — it's the porn star version we really want to see! Well, maybe "see" is too strong a word ... it would be amusing to know that it at least exists, right?
Just think about it: Every, er, "action scene" in the movie ends with an explosion. Now this is just the kind of thing that's needed to shake up (or blow up, rather) the adult entertainment industry.

You know that old game, anything you can do, I can do better? Well, that playground mentality is about to be crossed with another grade school standard — girls against the boys — as according to Variety, "The Grey" producer Adi Shankar is putting together an all-female version of "The Expendables."

"The Expendables 2" took no prisoners this weekend as according to Film.com, the oldest gang of ass-kickers ever assembled brought in $28.8 million to earn the top spot at the box office.
Of course, the other big new release of the weekend was the musical "Sparkle," which features the final performance from the late Whitney Houston. And the film did her legacy proud, earning $12 million for fifth on the chart. That was just two million less than "Sparkle's" entire production budget, meaning the film has almost broken even after just three days of release.

Yeah, it might be time for this summer movie season to be over.
"The Expendables 2" has now had a memorable opening day for all the wrong reasons as police were sent to investigate a series of bomb threats at theaters showing the action sequel, according to Deadline. Get More »
