The Expendables 2, 2012 Comic Con Poster

the expendables 2 Comic Con PosterBack for War. The Expendables 2  released a new poster ahead of the film’s panel at Comic-Con this week, and there’s a whiff of B-movie about it’s design.

Showing the primary cast of gun-toting hardmen against a backdrop of explosion-based mayhem, it looks like the kind of poster you’d see outside a scuzzy grindhouse cinema as part of an OTT action double-bill. Which kind of makes sense, given that the film is basically a very glossy B-movie.

 

Boasting pretty much everything but the incredibly masculine kitchen sink, it show Jean-Claude Van Damme’s leg exploding, Jason Statham’s Lee Christmas going clay pigeon shooting with an anti-aircraft gun and more choppers than Arnie could ever dream of shouting about, ever.

 

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….

 

From Lionsgate and Millennium Films, THE EXPENDABLES 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the summer 2010 worldwide box-office success ($274 million worldwide). The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, with Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with newest cast members Liam Hemsworth, martial arts legends Chuck Norris and Jean Claude Van Damme, and Chinese actress Yu Nan as the first female EXPENDABLE. The film is directed by Simon West, written by Sylvester Stallone and based on characters created by David Callaham, and produced by Avi Lerner, Danny Lerner, Les Weldon, and Kevin King Templeton.
