Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger in San Diego to promote 'Escape Plan'

Hundreds in wait in line to meet stars

SAN DIEGO - Hundreds waited in line to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone at the screening of their upcoming film "Escape Plan" Thursday.

The way Stallone sees it, San Diego has become the movie kingdom.

The event was like a real deal Hollywood premiere, red carpet and all, in the middle of the Gaslamp."

"I think San Diego had slowly become the new Hollywood,” said Sylvester Stallone.

Fans waited in line for hours to meet the star-studded cast of "Escape Plan," starring Stallone and former-California Gov. Schwarzenegger, who waved to fans as he pulled up to the screening,and made it very clear, he was there only to talk about his movie.

"After all you've been through, coming back from governor, everything that's happened with Maria, how does someone like yourself bounce back from that and come back into this zone?" asked 10News reporter Preston Phillips:

“I just keep my eye on the ball and the "Escape Plan" and I'm just talking about the "Escape Plan" and promote that movie,” said Schwarzenegger.

In the high-intensity action film, Stallone plays the part of Ray Breslin, the world's foremost authority on structural security, who is tasked with breaking out of an ultra-secret, high tech prison called "The Tomb."

Schwarzenegger plays the part of an inmate Stallone recruits in the film to help him escape.

“No matter how many prison breakout movies you've seen, they didn't have Sly and Arnold in it, right, so that's what also makes it different,” said Schwarzenegger.

10News asked Stallone what working with Schwarzenegger is like.

“It's pretty boring. I don't know. I have to take No-Doz to stay awake. He talks so slow and I slur, so we don't understand each other," said Stallone. "We just stand there going what? What did you say?”

"Escape Plan" is out in theaters nationwide on Oct. 18.
