'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!?
