Action blitzkrieg The Expendables will hit screens at the Alamo Drafthouse on August 13. We are already gearing up our celebration for this event. Our thought: an all night adrenaline cocktail of the best of the best action movies from the stars of the Expendables: Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis (we can also take from Eric Roberts, Steve Austin and Mickey Rourke I suppose). Of course, before each feature we would offer a robust selection of action trailers from the American Genre Film Archive collection.
I know people have strong opinions on this subject, I certainly do. We want your input. If you were tasked with programming a quadruple feature of action movies that would nitro-boost your excitement levels the weekend before The Expendables, what would it be? Would you limit to the 80s? Would you slip CRANK 2: HIGH VOLTAGE in there? Would you sample from Hong Kong and if so, would you delve into Jet Li's kung fu repertoire? Let us know this week. In your comment, please list your hometown and your choices. If we choose your exact lineup for the show, you will get a four-pack of tickets to the event and a $20 Alamo Gift Card.
To get you in the mood, enjoy this compilation of the top 160 one-liners from Arnold Schwarzenegger.
