The Expendables 2

Holy mountain of action movie stars! Our friends at JoBlo have revealed the first unofficial poster for The Expendables 2, which features a total of nine kick ass action stars all stacked/packed onto one one-sheet. Of course, Sylvester Stallone is up front and center, flanked by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. The Expendables has had some embarrassing production woes recently, including the tragic death of a stuntman and fines for damaging a protected habitat while filming, that I'm sure Lionsgate/Millennium wants everyone to forget. So here's a poster packed with stars, including Chuck Norris, in the meantime.

Click below or head to JoBlo for the high res. Looks like it was unofficial poster anyway!

Poster has been removed at the request of Millennium Films. Sorry!

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. This is an awesome stack of action stars, there's no denying that. I'm sure we'll see more for this soon. Excited?

That looks like a goof poster from the future, right out of Back to the Future 2. Let it go guys, let it go...

We children of the 80's can't. Its like telling 13 year old girls and unhappy grown women to give up the Twilight films.

Oh my fucking GOD!!! You two have made me laugh straight for 10 minutes... I nearly passed out! No lie... "Let it go guys, let it go..." & "Its like telling 13 year old girls and unhappy grown women to give up the Twilight films" made me cry with laughter. So much tears...

... Looks to be as badass as the first. Bring your popcorn! ...

When did Jet Li get a sex change?

Nathan on Nov 18, 2011


Other than Statham, this could be a promo poster for a retirement home. Holy crap they look old.

Who is the random asian woman in the poster? Otherwise I like it alot. This movie is going to rock some shiyit!

Josh Taylor on Nov 18, 2011


I totally love President Herbert Montain Dew Camacho in that poster. BRING IT ON, B#$%&!

Manuel on Nov 18, 2011


Where's Jet Li..... Unless Jet Li became a girl... That's not Jet Li.

Good Lord ,look at the Testosterone levels of this photo, my manliness isn't worthy

Why is there gibberish written at the bottom of the poster? I'm sure that a press release is imminent with an official announcement for the cast, plot, etc. Van Damme, Norris, Atkins and Hemsworth can't be the only new additions to the cast.

McGregor on Nov 18, 2011


What are you talking about? Look at the credits on the poster, the line along the top, that's everyone who is in the film - and that matches up with everyone we mentioned, mixing returning actors and all the new ones. I doubt there's more cameos, but I mentioned Cage/Travolta anyway. What's wrong with all of that?

Alex Billington on Nov 18, 2011


My list below alex are of actors that could have made this even better so ya know after that first star studded flick it feels lame by just adding two or 3

Chip_Tha_Ripper on Nov 18, 2011


First off, this poster looks good, but I don't know where you guys been but Jet Li isn't in this, from what I heard he and Mickey Rourke dropped out..oh btw, Chuck Norris looks very gay on this poster!lol!! If I was Randy Couture, I'd be mad as hell if I was in the first one and wasn't on this poster! What a shame!

jah p on Nov 18, 2011


So Li is out then? Someone should have told the bloke who put the poster together as he seems to have left his name on there. *cough*

Chris on Nov 18, 2011


Then why is "Li" one of the names credited along the top...? I'm pretty sure Jet Li is in this.

Alex Billington on Nov 18, 2011


They said this awhile ago,that he wasn't in this Alex, they were actually looking for his replacement months ago...they were even looking at Donnie Yen, but his schedule was full.

jah p on Nov 18, 2011


Maybe that was temporary, he's definitely listed, if this is an official poster (I believe it is) then I trust what it says.

Alex Billington on Nov 18, 2011


Which means this poster is a FAKE

Gfgdfgdfg on Nov 18, 2011


So is Jet Li really in this at ALL or not? Have they found a replacement? He's still listed on IMDb... does anyone know the real story?

Alex Billington on Nov 19, 2011


Rourke is in it because the whole plot was supposed to be about his character doing a,lone mission in bulgeria and dying.

Chip_Tha_Ripper on Nov 18, 2011


What a mess... so it'll be perfect for this film. What's with the awkward looking 'also/with/and'?

Chris on Nov 18, 2011


EX2: Expendables United

Yahzee on Nov 18, 2011


... and by the way, this is not and officially released poster. If you look a the credits (bottom of the image) you'll notice it.

Yahzee on Nov 18, 2011


Yea the credits definitely do seem weird... Is this a fan-made poster or something? Do we have any idea or confirmation?

Alex Billington on Nov 18, 2011


Maybe something has changed since, but here's the link that Jet Li isn't in this..

jah p on Nov 18, 2011


Who is Liam Hemsworth and why is he even in this movie?

Josh Taylor on Nov 18, 2011


Related to the guy who played thor(who I wanted in this movie) pretty much has done no action movies at all either..

Chip_Tha_Ripper on Nov 18, 2011


Fake or not, it's still a funny poster 🙂

David Banner on Nov 18, 2011


Chuck Norris looks awesome on this poster!

Condy on Nov 18, 2011


That poster is the saddest, most awesome thing I have ever seen.

Anonymous on Nov 18, 2011


Wishing it had the rock, vin diseal, CHRIS hemsworth, ferrigno, the guy that played debo in the friday movies, samuel l jackson, clint eastwood, harrison ford, wesley snipes or sean connery. Oh well, theres always EX3

Chip_Tha_Ripper on Nov 18, 2011


Now I'll have to get around to watching the rest of the first movie.

Though it is a tragedy for both the stuntmen injuring or becoming fatal in the process of the movie being made, the reason why that may have not been mentioned is cuz that's not what this site is about. This site is here to aid fans in the information for upcoming movies delivering posters, trailers, commentaries, and release dates with the occasional writers giving their two sense about movies having come out and say their heh's or nah's/their opinions to the movie. If this site told every little incident in every movie (such as the accident not ever mentioned in the making of Transformers 3) fans would have to painstakingly search through unnecessary info to read what their hearts desire. Don't reap on the Firstshowing crew for information you've undoubtedly already read about elsewhere on the internet. You've found the info already, had your brief moment for being sorry, and now move doesn't effect you or us in any way.
