'The Expendables 2' Gets a Grindhouse-Inspired Comic-Con Poster
Well, most of the posters for The Expendables 2 have been mostly underwhelming, even though everyone in the cast got their own poster, but the good stuff is being unleashed at Comic-Con this week. A new poster is getting released at Comic-Con and it seems to take a cue from Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse, especially with that font and the faux creases and wear. Lionsgate will be handing out this poster at Comic-Con while supplies last. The original is an oil on canvas piece, which was used to create the poster as well as 250 limited-edition prints on specialty canvas paper to be signed by the cast. Look below!
Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should've been an easy job, but when one of their men is murdered, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
The Expendables 2 is directed by British filmmaker Simon West, of movies like Con Air, The General's Daughter, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Purple Mountain and The Mechanic previously. The screenplay was written by Sylvester Stallone, who directed the first one but not this one. Lionsgate is releasing Expendables 2 from Millennium Films / Nu Image starting on August 17th later this summer. You in for this one!?

That isn't actually that terrible. I quite like it.

I'm surprised that Chuck Norris isn't in Jason Statham's spot and vice versa.

probably since he wasnt in the first one

Li was, and had some great scenes/lines. Unless that's him on that apc/tank he isn't even on the damn poster. FAIL

For real, how can they leave Li out? Is that stallone in the bottom middle?
Marc Callado on Jul 9, 2012
The synopsis says that one of their men is murdered. I think that's Li. That is a crap move right there. Kill him (which is nothing more than justifiable speculation btw) and not even put him on the poster. That's a darn shame.

I can guarantee that Mr. Norris has a small part (anywhere from cameo to minor team member), while Statham is Stallone's 2nd in command.

Chuck Norris is just.....WTF!! He can't act, he also said in an interview that he is a professional and Bruce Lee is not......the dude can't even fight, don't know how he got famous. Chuck does Karate, Bruce Lee does Wing Chun mixed with his own (Jeet Kune Do) and he is trying to say that he is better/professional than Bruce is, he was dedicated to what he was doing. i mean even Karate is like WTF aswell (i did it, got yellow belt, thought it was shit and then that was it for me) Karate is nothing really compared to other martial arts out there. Only if Bruce was alive man....

I would love to see (among this extreme super actors) some bad-ass classic actors too. Like Peter O'Toole or Clint Eastwood.

Is this rated PG-13?

Poor Jean Claude VanDamme! How many can he fight ?

I feel like they're going to underuse Jet Li again... He's not even in the poster... Seriously, Thor's brother is in the poster but not Jet Li?
