Box Office Betting: The Expendables to Gross Over $17.5 Mil 1St Weekend

The Expendables stands more than a 70 percent chance of grossing OVER $17.5M in its opening weekend this coming weekend according to Gambling911.com, the gambling news and odds authority. 

A film by Sylvester Stallone, tribute is paid to the blockbuster action films of the 1980s and early '90s, and stars an array of action veterans from those decades, including Stallone himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Jet Li, as well as more recent stars such as Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Steve Austin.

Though some might question the vitality of a cast largely made up of men well over 40 — a few in their mid-60's — Stallone said "The Expendables" was a return to authentic action characters in an era dominated by special effects.

"It's a rapport with the audience. It's just that you believe what you see and that guy is bigger than the show," the star said at Monday’s London premiere, adding "every generation has to create their own hero and that's why you have the superhero, it's evolved. But after "Avatar" it's like, 'Stop, let's go back to basics'."

In the film, Stallone leads a gang of mercenaries who get caught up in a plot to overthrow the murderous dictator of a fictitious nation.

Stallone had his neck broken twice during filming.
