Testesterone Trio

Darkhorizons has the following news of cinema awesomeness:

"The most talked about scene for Sylvester Stallone's upcoming "The Expendables" film finally got filmed this past Saturday morning in Los Angeles.

Ethelmae's Blog reports that Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger all showed up at the Hollywood Presbyterian Church to shoot 'a pivotal scene that sets up the whole movie' according to publicist Maria Lascala, a scene that has the three action stars playing off of each other.

The scene was shot in an empty church without extras and minimal set decorations while the tone was a blend of "tension and humor". Lascala added that things went super smoothly - 'we got through the scene quickly without compromise. In 6 hours we did wide shots, close-ups, turned around ... the whole nine yards'"

That last quote was a little awkward, given Willis' penchant for lower-than-average comedies. Still, The Expendables has me giddy with excitement. This film will probably be the first real action movie to come out of Hollywood since Executive Decision (although Live Free and Die Hard came pretty damn close).
