It was a mild surprise when we learned Sylvester Stallone was going to star in an Escape Plan sequel. Mikael Håfström‘s light thriller underperformed in the States, making only around $25 million, but it made over $100 million overseas.

Stallone is in good company with the sequel, too, as he’s now being joined by Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy).
