LOS ANGELES: Hollywood

Hollywood Boulevard lived up to its name this week.  Mega acting stars showed up for the premiere and after party in Los Angeles.  The all star roster who showed?  – Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas and more.  It was everything a person would expect a premiere to be like in Los Angeles.  Tons of fans, a full red carpet of A-List celebrities (legends in fact), power agents, power producers, power talent managers, beautiful supermodels to fill in the gaps and an army of security to keep it all in order.  From La Brea to Highland the street was barricaded as a swarm of black vehicles waited for their top celebrity passengers.  Screams of thousands of fans echoing around the entrance of the red carpet premiere hoping to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrity or better yet, a selfie with them.

“The mercenary group, the Expendables, led by Barney Ross, leads a mission to rescue a former Expendable, Doctor Death, from a heavily guarded military convoy.  Later on, the team is then assigned to take down a warlord, in which they come face to face with the team’s co-founder Conrad Stonebanks.  In the past, Ross was forced to kill Stonebanks after he became a ruthless arms trader, but Stonebanks survived and has now made it his mission to destroy the Expendables.  After one of the team’s members is seriously wounded, Ross disbands his old team and resorts to recruiting a new and younger generation of Expendables with the help of Bonaparte to help the team overcome his old adversary.  However, at one point the mission becomes a failure, in which the older and the younger generations now have to put their rivalry behind them and work together to overcome Stonebanks and his ruthless army.”
