The Expendables 2 Poster

Ever since that fake pile-up-of-actors poster debuted a few months ago, I've been anxious to see what the actual poster for The Expendables 2 would look like. Ain't It Cool News has debuted, officially, the first official poster for Simon West's Expendables 2. There's only one actor on it, Sylvester Stallone of course, but I love the look and concept. It's a hole blown in the wall in front of him as a giant number 2, with some orange flame tinges. For all that we've seen in the meantime, this is honestly an impressive official debut, bravo Lionsgate, some great work here to follow-up that otherwise measly first trailer. Check it out below!

Here's the new Expendables 2 poster. To grab the high res version, head to AICN. I'm sure we'll see more.

The Expendables 2 Poster

Millennium Films / Nu Image now has Simon West (Con Air, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic) set to direct The Expendables 2, with Stallone returning along with Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Terry Crews and Jet Li. The cast now also includes Liam Hemsworth, Scott Adkins, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, along with rumors of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage (likely not in it, or only cameos). Shooting is underway in Bulgaria, despite the troubles they've run into. Lionsgate has set an official August 17th, 2012 release date next for Expendables 2 summer. We just debuted the first official trailer earlier in the week, but it didn't use too much footage in it. Thoughts?

    The 1st was totally the perfect fun movie. Not so great on a 2nd viewing but a goddamned blast the first time around. Stallone just makes me laugh and the action is so over-the-top, they're clearly having fun using new techniques to stay true to classic 80s action flicks. Oh, yeah, and the poster is totally awesome! Heh...."Barney"....even the stupid, non-threatening name makes me laugh
  • CFH
    Yeah, posters are cool.  Too bad they have nothing to do with how good movies are. 
  • Spider
    Now, THIS IS a freakin' movie poster! I have a feeling that this sequel is gonna ROCK!
  • Anoynmous
     apparently it this is supposed to be rated R. If so, this movie will be FUCKING MIND BLOWING lol.
    Sly is a BAMF. I'm in just to see how this circus pans out (I secretly hope that it will be awesome).
  • gonna lose my virginity twice this time around ekhekehskz
  • This is a MAN movie!
  • LW
    There's a big '2' in the wall because Chuck Norris wanted to look outside a 2nd time. 
  • Shadowman
    I couldn't help but notice the similarities between this poster and one AMRA Pictures Entertainment did more than a year ago for a movie titled "Body Count" that they are currently developing. You can check the poster on producer/director, Desi Singh's IMDb profile at the following link on the IMDb.  I think they approached Millenium Pictures with their project a few years ago, as they've been trying to get their movie made for some time now.

    Its cool its being filmed in Bulgaria. It should be a great movie with the cast. Looking forward to it.!!!
