The first trailer has been released for the action film, Escape Plan. Formerly titled “The Tomb“, Sylvester Stallone stars as Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security. Breslin is framed and incarcerated in a prison of his own master design, and must escape in order to find out who framed him and why. Stallone is joined by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays a fellow inmate and accomplice in the jail break. The trailer makes the flick look like an old-school action flick, and one that could be a whole lot of fun. Schwarzenegger and Stallone could have played these roles twenty years ago, but they don’t seem too old to play them now.
