My God they all look grumpy don’t they? I mean, seriously, imagine having to tell this lot they can’t bring their weapons on a plane, you’d rather die wouldn’t you? Anyway, after the rather cool and impressive black and white character posters, here is the new poster for The Expendables 2, a film which promises to be a much bigger, louder affair than its predecessor.
I must admit that while this new poster is lovely and colourful and all that, with some nice fire and scenes of utter chaos in the background, I can’t help but think they all look a little uncomfortable. Take a look at Jason Statham’s face, it looks like the fire in the image is real and is starting to really hurt, while the rest appear to have taken a deep breath and are holding it until told otherwise. Judging by the look on Dolph Lundgren’s face, I have a sneaky suspicion he may have just let one rip, and is laughing at the fact everyone is struggling to breathe! Whatever the reason’s, the poster aint bad, but could have been a whole lot better.
The sequel, directed by Simon West, has a massive list of names involved: Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Liam Hemsworth, Randy Couture, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Scott Adkins, Liam Hemsworth and Nan Yu. Expect to see The Expendables 2 in UK cinemas on 17th August.

“The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….”
