Finally High Res Real Poster Art for The Expendables

This may not be the very first time you've seen this poster - and that's because Lionsgate has been sending around some fake photos of banners on display at Cannes. The photos show an entire hotel covered with posters for The Expendables, but it's all a bunch of BS. There is not a single actual Expendables banner anywhere on the Croisette, I know that for sure because I'm there. But the poster below is real, and the character posters below that are also real (as far as I know). We've been posting a lot of Expendables content recently, so I'm trying to keep it short this time. I will say this looks pretty good, for now, so check it out.
The Expendables is about a team of mercenaries who head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator. It stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews, and Charisma Carpenter. Stallone both wrote and is directing the film. The film is still in the middle of shooting. You can follow updates on its progress over on the official blog. We'll let you know when we see more from The Expendables, whether it be new photos, new footage, or a new poster (perhaps?) sometime soon. Either way, this should be an exciting production to follow all the way to its finish.
