Movie news: Batista with Stallone, Orton plays an insightful party bro with Seth Green

A couple of movie trailers have recently been released featuring Evolution mates Dave Batista and Randy Orton.

Let’s start with Batista. His 2019 movie schedule is continuing by sharing the screen with action icon Sylvester Stallone in Escape Plan: The Extractors.

After security expert Ray Breslin is hired to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Hong Kong tech mogul from a formidable Latvian prison, Breslin’s girlfriend is also captured.

That will be the third film in the Escape Plan series. Yes, you read that right. The 2013 original starring Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger breaking out of a super secret prison has two sequels. I didn’t realize Escape Plan 2 existed. Batista reprises his role as Trent DeRosa from the second film.

Here is the trailer for Escape Plan: The Extractors.

It doesn’t show that much of Batista. He appears to be on the losing end of a fight. However, Batista does get the last line. “I may be late, but I make a big impression.” He then proceeds to blast a gun.

None of that matters though. If you tell me Stallone and Batista are in a film together, I’ll automatically be excited. Just look at the badass poster.


Escape Plan: The Extractors is scheduled for direct-to-video US release on July 2, 2019.

As for the other half of the Evolution youngsters, Randy Orton will be sharing the screen in a limited role with Seth Green for Changeland. Green’s directorial debut also stars Breckin Meyer and Macaulay Culkin.

While visiting Thailand, two estranged friends realize there’s no rule book for finding purpose and meaning in life.

The start of the trailer was promising as perhaps a sort of imitation Hangover. When I clicked play, I wasn’t planning on the surprise of Randy Orton appearing. But, there he was ringing a bell saying, “Shots for everybody. Tonight is going to be the greatest night of our lives.”

The trailer went downhill shortly after that as it turned into a mopey angst indie flick. Orton did return for a second line. “You’re here to solve something. All these people from different worlds, all together, wanting the same things; to feel safe, to feel love. We all share that.”

The only thing that could sway me into watching would be footage of an RKO out of nowhere on Seth Green.

Changeland is scheduled for release on June 7, 2019.

Are you interested in seeing either of these movies? Do you think Randy Orton has a future as an actor? What should the plot and title be of a movie starring both Batista and Orton?
