Ever since we first caught wind of THE EXPENDABLES, we’ve been readying ourselves for what is surely going to be the action-movie event of the year.  The cast list reads like a veritable who’s who of kicking ass and taking names.  Seriously, try to read off some of the following names without doing a jumping round-house kick of joy.  Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham, the list goes on and on.  Bonus points for Eric Roberts, Terry Crews, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and UFC three-time former heavyweight champion Randy Couture.  If that list doesn’t put hair on your chest, then you weren’t paying attention.

With those names attached and Stallone at the helm writing/directing, THE EXPENDABLES is definitely going to deliver on it’s promise of fast-paced action, bloody violence, and explosions a-plenty.  This is not the kind of movie that you can just step into willy-nilly; you’ve got to prepare first.  You wouldn’t run a marathon without stretching your hamstrings, right?  Don’t worry action-movie fans, The Alamo Drafthouse has you covered as we present THE EXPENDABLES All-Night Action Movie Cinemapocalypse!

Join us for a triple feature of killer action films featuring the stars of THE EXPENDABLES followed by a FREE advance screening of the new film.  We are rolling out some of our favorite movies for an all-night, take no prisoners, bacchanal of violence and revelry.  It all starts at 10pm and will continue until our lust for blood has been satiated.  This is not a night for the faint of heart.  If you’ve never effortlessly snapped the neck of a rival or walked away from an explosion in slow motion (without looking back of course), you better think real hard before committing to THE EXPENDABLES All-Night Action Movie Cinemapocalypse!!  Stay tuned for more details, including full lineup and advance ticketing info.

If you don't make it, Julia Roberts and the terrorists win.
