Whether you're on Team Gale or Team Peeta, one thing is totally non-negotiable: Liam Hemsworth is hot.
The Australian actor is one-third of the love triangle in "The Hunger Games" as Gale Hawthorne. He's Katniss' best friend and the object of affection of most of her schoolmates. Strangely, she doesn't seem to notice his bulging biceps and piercing blue eyes, which we'll get to see even more of with Liam's spot in the merry band of mercenaries in "The Expendables 2."
But we most certainly have noticed. And we've deemed them more than worthy of a Hot People Looking Hot gallery.
Worry not — we won't make anyone pick a side. You can also see Peeta Josh Hutcherson's gallery here.
This weekend I'm getting a sixpack of antifreeze and duffel bag filled with raw ground beef and going to see "The Expendables 2."
I'm certain I enjoyed the first one (it's a bit of a haze) and if my crumpling into manly tears at the mere sight of the new one's outdoor ads is any indication, I'll have a blast yet again. One thing we must ask, however. Whither the chicks?
I say with full respect and courtesy to the fairer sex, why have you not been included in this battle royale of badassery? Yes, there are some women in the film - Yu Nan will play an agent named Maggie, Charisma Carpenter is back as Statham's g.f. and someone named Amanda Ooms is on hand to give the film some oomph - but where are the female equivalents of the Expendables? Where are the Expendablettes?
If I were in charge of everything (as I will be, eventually) here's who I'd add to the team for "The Expendables 3." Get More »
Being a villain is hardly new territory for Jean-Claude Van Damme: He started his career as the bad guy in "No Retreat, No Surrender" and "Black Eagle." Then, good fortune came his way and he was cast in a little movie called, "Bloodsport." The rest is history.
A few days ago, we went round-for-round with the Muscles from Brussels himself, JCVD, to discuss his role as the rogue in Sylvester Stallone's new male pattern badness adventure, "The Expendables 2."
Not only does JCVD talk about the upcoming "Bloodsport" remake, "Double Impact 2," and the signature roundhouse kicks he performs in "The Expendables 2," he gets up, moves furniture and shows with passionate detail how his kicks are done and why they work. Nothing ever prepares you for moments like this. Get More »
Dear lord, how did L.A. not collapse under the weight of all this testosterone?
It was manly men galore as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme and other towers of power walked the red carpet in Hollywood in celebration of "The Expendables 2," the rough and tumble tale of dudes with guns, knives, bazookas and attitude.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and get ready for the bullet-ridden extravaganza that is "The Expendables 2," in theaters on Aug. 17.
What happens when you put the greatest action heroes of all time into one movie? You get the epic explosion of badassery that is "The Expendables 2."
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jean-Claude Van Damme lead this sequel to the successful 2010 action film about a band of hired mercenaries. Although they're one cohesive unit, with so much testosterone gathered in one movie, we couldn't help but pit these actors against each other to see who can really be considered the most badass, based on their fighting style, muscle mass, studliness, weapons expertise and one-liners from their entire filmographies.
Whether they're a martial arts master, a skilled sniper or a bodacious bodybuilder, read on to see who's really the least expendable of "The Expendables 2" cast. Get More »
Manly men like action movies. And steak. And watching oiled-up gym rats wrestle until one is pinned down and submits to the other's brawny powers. (We'd say that men "love" these things, but manly men find that word too submissive.)
So, when Sylvester Stallone gathered some of the biggest names (and biceps) of the action star pantheon together for an epic ensemble piece entitled "The Expendables" back in 2010, he forged the manliest merger since the X chromosome collided with the Y. And on the heels of that triumph, "The Expendables 2" will be flooding theaters with testosterone yet again on Aug. 17. Get More »
Fans of 1980s action cinema are eagerly awaiting this week's release of "The Expendables 2" thanks to its all star cast, which includes Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and Jean-Claude Van Damme. So what could they possibly do to top that for "The Expendables 3?"
How about giving fans of '70s action cinema a blast from the past with Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford?
Looks like punks aren't the only ones feeling lucky today. Get More »
An action-packed summer movie season deserves an epic grand finale. Luckily, "The Expendables 2" is here to help make this summer go out with a bang.
Everyone's favorite band of merry mercenaries is back in this sequel to 2010's "The Expendables." This time, they're out for revenge as they lose one of their own during a job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis). The explosions are bigger, the stunts are crazier and the cast gets even more star-studded, with Liam Hemsworth, Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger joining original Expendables Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li.
So, needless to say, we have a giveaway that's back and better than ever to go along with it. Get More »
"Double Impact" is arguably one of action legend Jean-Claude Van Damme's best films, for two reasons: It's got double the Van Dammage and another face-off against the great Bolo Yeung (who played his "Bloodsport" nemesis).
When we met JCVD last week, we took the opportunity to ask him about the "Double Impact" days -- and Van Damme began to gush about the possibility of a sequel.
"I wrote the script with a friend of mine Sheldon - He [co-wrote] "Bloodsport" and "Double Impact" with me," he told us. "Hopefully, somebody smart enough, like an agent or a producer, can put that back together...I'm excited about it, you know?" Get More »
Unless you've been stranded on an island somewhere remote, you already know the Mussels from Brussels, Jean-Claude Van Damme, is set to make a comeback as an action star. In just a few weeks, you'll be able to see him on the big screen — for the first time since his very first role in 1986, it'll be (again) as the villain — in "The Expendables 2."
We recently spoke with JCVD during his "Expendables" press tour, and before we worked through his feelings on being immortalized as a villain, we got a chance to discuss the "Bloodsport" remake. Internet rumors that Van Damme has the blues over the movie are true, it turns out.
"I want to be in the film as a trainer and I don't think the writer wants [me] to ... he knows that 'Bloodsport' is a big film so he wants to get credit with all of that — you know what I'm saying?" Get More »
