Things Go Ka-Boom in 'The Expendables 2' Teaser

Any teaser that opens with Sylvester Stallone hanging his head in shame whilst Bruce Willis calmly berates him has definitely fulfilled its "tease" obligation.

We're still not quite sure who liked "The Expendables" enough to justify a sequel (oh, yeah -- Mr. Box Office kind of dug it), but for better or worse, "The Expendables 2" exists and is coming at you -- and we really hope it's going to be the movie we wanted the first "Expendables" to be.

And it looks like it might be. It's not much, but the first look at the new mission of Sylvester Stallone and friends gives a taste of many explosions to come, as well as a glimpse of new team members Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth and Jean-Claude Van Damme in action. Speaking of JCVD, you have to love that "Also" credit he gets.

For some reason, Mickey Rourke opted not to return for another adventure. We're sure he has his Mickey Rourke reasons.
