Exclusive: Arnold & Sly's Crazy Competition
By DAVID WEINER
February 03, 2014
Who has the best muscle separation? Who has the leanest body weight? Who shoots with the biggest guns? Who has killed the most people onscreen with their bare hands? Action icons Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger both ruled the action genre in the '80s and '90s and kept up a stiff competition, but never worked together until Arnold's cameos in the first and second Expendables. What took so long? And how well did they get along? The two of 'em explain it all in this exclusive clip from the Escape Plan Blu-ray, out tomorrow and on Digital HD now, which marks the first full-length feature in which they co-starred together with top billing. Watch and share!
The high-tech prison thriller Escape Plan casts Sly as "the world's foremost authority on structural security" for high-security prisons who finds himself faced with escaping from a high-tech, master prison. Arnold plays "a complex inmate with multiple shades of grey" who fights to keep the prisoners from losing their humanity in their darkest hour as they struggle together to stay alive. With Sly double-crossed and a warden (Jim Caviezel) intent on keeping his inmates behind bars at all costs, can the two men work together to find a way out alive?
Directed by Mikael Håfström (1408), Escape Plan also stars Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D'Onofrio and Amy Ryan. Arriving on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD UltraViolet), DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on February 4, the Blu-ray bonus features include audio commentary from the director and writer, three informative featurettes about the film, and deleted scenes.
