We just received the new poster of ‘The Expendables 2’, the highly anticipated action movie that assembles the greatest 80’s action stars in one film: Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and Dolph Lundgren, amongst others.
The poster only has Stallone on it, but you can bet the others are going to want in. From our perspective, looks like a bomb went off outlining the number 2 on a concrete wall with Stallone looking on like a bad ass. This new poster looks much better than the original posters from last year.
Part 1 was #1 at the box office generating $266,159,621 worldwide. So why not come back and make some more cash! Stallone wrote this sequel, but he won’t be directing or producing. Sounds like he wants to take it easy on this one and concentrate on his “acting”.
If you have no clue of what’s going down in this second installment, The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason 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….
