Arnold Schwarzenegger & Sylvester Stallone Plot Their 'Escape Plan' In New Movie [Trailer]

Who would have thought that in 2013 the two biggest action movie names would still be Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger? With the veterans of the big screen still putting out new movies that are generally well-received by audiences, the legends of the action genre are joining forces to co-star next to each other for the first time (bar The Expendables movies, in which Arnie was arguably a feature rather than a star) to date in the new movie Escape Plan.

As we can tell from the trailer, Stallone is the main character of the film, but it is Arnold who looks like the real star here. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, a master prison escape artist and a man with a vast array of survival skills that he has developed to make him nearly incarceration-proof. When he is framed and thrown behind bars in the escape-proof prison he designed himself, he must escape (with the help of the prison's most authoritative inmate - Schwarzenegger) and find the person who set him up.

Swedish director Mikael Håfström served behind the camera for the film and featuring a cast that also includes Jim Caviezel, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan, Vincent D'Onofrio and 50 Cent, the film could secure Arnie and Sly's place as bankable movie stars for another few movies at least. Escape Plan will tunnel its way on to the big screen on October 18 across the US, reaching cinemas in the UK on 27 September.
