Lionsgate has finally unveiled its ensemble one-sheet for “Expendables 2.” The iconic tough guys of the big screen are on display here (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Bruce Willis), along with familiar players like Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jet Li, and Dolph Lundgren—plus, new additions Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, and Liam Hemsworth.
Here is a studio-sanctioned plot summary for “Expendables 2,” followed by the final poster (via Yahoo! Movies):
Mr. Church (Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney (Stallone) 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 (Van Damme) who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way…
Just like the “Expendables 2” trailers and TV spots, the final poster is full to the brim with muscular men, guns, knives, weaponry, fire, and explosions; in other words, everything this testosterone-fest promises to deliver in boatloads (with some enjoyably cheesy one-liners and bro-centric drama to boot). This new poster doesn’t unite all of the movie’s manly stars in the most stylish configuration imaginable–but it gets the job done.
P.S. If you read this headline and thought, “holy shit, Liam Hemsworth, a.k.a. the future Mr. Miley Cyrus, is in the ‘Expendables 2’? How did I not hear about this?” you’re in good company, because it looks like the same thought went through the poster designer’s mind about five minutes before his deadline: “Liam who? Aw, crap. Whatever, I’ll just stick him in the back next to the explosions.”
