Ever since Sylvester Stallone’s Expendables trilogy brought back some of our favorite 80′s heroes to the big screen, other “copycats” have – or will have – followed!
Copycats like Asylum’s Mercenaries; the soon-to-be released Showdown in Manilla; in-development projects like Avi Lerner’s The ExpendaBelles and Adi Shankar’s “other” all-female untitled film; Indonesia’s take, Garuda 7; then we have the uncertain B-Team and Blood Raid, headed by Don “The Dragon” Wilson. And let’s not forget about the possibility of a Chinese version of The Expendables, led by Donnie Yen.
Well, it’s time to add one more Expendables-esque film to the mix: Beyond the Game, the sequel to 2008’s Lost Warrior: Left Behind. You might want to grab a snack or something, because this film has one heck of a lineup:
Beyond the Game stars Olivier Gruner (Nemesis), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Skin Trade), Armand Assante (The World at Our Feet), Eric Roberts (The Expendables), Mark Dacascos (Drive), Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3), Kelly Hu (Crade 2 the Grave), Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Danny Trejo (Machete), Costas Mandylor (Fist of the North Star), Tony Todd (The Crow), Michael Madsen (Kill Bill Vol. 1), Kevin Sorbo (Kull the Conqueror) and Bai Ling (The Crow).
Also appearing in the film is Martin Kove (The Karate Kid), Steven Bauer (Scarface), Billy Zane (Titanic), Patrick Kilpatrick (Under Siege 2: Dark Territory), Ralf Moeller (Best of the Best II), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Aki Aleong (Pound of Flesh), Natalie Burn (The Expendables 3), Michael Jai White (Skin Trade), Matthias Hues (Raging Thunder), Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson (White Tiger), Cynthia Rothrock (Yes, Madam), George Cheung (Rambo: First Blood Part II), Richard Chaves (Predator), Silvio Simac (Man of Tai Chi) and Lorenzo Lamas (Snake Eater).
