Escape Plan, formerly known as The Tomb, released its first trailer today. No doubt that 20 years ago the release of this trailer would’ve been the biggest news on the internet, had anyone been ON the internet that is. However, now in their 60s, Stallone and Schwarzenegger don’t have the same pull they once did, but that doesn’t mean this won’t be worth watching. Even if their last 2 movies (Bullet to the Head, Last Stand) weren’t.
About three years ago, I was watching the trailer for this movie and my initial reaction was “whatever”. Then the title of the movie was flashed on the screen – The Midnight Meat Train – it became a must see for me. Although the trailer itself seemed bland, I figured with a title like this, what would it be that would make this movie seem terrible. Oh, but when I actually watched it; there was nothing terrible about it at all.
