Find Out If You Are Expendable

by Alex Gerage

The consensus among most moviegoers is that the summer season thus far has been a bit of a dud. Already halfway through June, few high profile films have caught and maintained the attention of the public. Studios are mobilizing their marketing campaigns around the remaining releases this summer in hopes it leads to a seasonal hit. One such film is the The Expendables, starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and almost every other action star over the age of fifty. To quench your desire to see old men running around and blowing things up, Lionsgate has launched a viral site to see if you too, are expendable. Hit to jump to learn more.


The “Are You Expendable?” viral page, which is an extension of the movie’s official site, requires you to take a psych evaluation to determine if you are “enough of a badass to be considered expendable.” What follows is a ten question personality test that finishes by offering you a nick name (I was Alex “Boom Boom” Gerage) and compares you to one of the expendables in the film. For me, it was Lee Christmas, played by Jason Statham.


Once you are part of the team, the site allows you to upload a picture of yourself from either Facebook or your computer, and add it to the lineup of faces in the latest poster for the film. You can try and pick me out from the crowd in the picture above.


The Expendables opens August 13th, and promises to be one of the last bastions of hope for an otherwise disappointing season of summer movies.
