Schwarzenegger & Stallone in Prison on First Poster for 'Escape Plan'
Late last summer, we got our first look at the new prison escape thriller titled The Tomb starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. Well, since then, the film from director Mikael Håfström (1408, The Rite) has been retitled Escape Plan, and now the fall release is gearing up the hype machine with the first poster. That usually means the first trailer isn't too far behind, likely arriving sometime next week, but until then this poster is pretty cool. It features Sly and Arnold back-to-back in what the tagline touts as "the most secure prison ever built," so this will probably be an impressive, heist-style escape. Look!
Here's the first poster for Mikael Håfström's Escape Plan from Yahoo:
Escape Plan is directed by Mikael Håfström and written by Miles Chapman. Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), the world's foremost authority on structural security, agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called 'The Tomb.' But when he is wrongly imprisoned, he must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built. Jim Caviezel, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D'Onofrio & Amy Ryan also star in the film which Summit releases on October 18th.

Nice! Looking forward to this. Though I think I preferred the original title. Maybe they thought it was misleading?

The Tomb is a much better title, but I'm excited for this. These two, plus Vinnie Jones and D'Onofrio? Yes please!

The Tomb was 100 times better than this new title, Escape Plan sounds so generic. Well If it worked for Prison Break why not. I'm I also the only one who was reminded of the movie "The Cube" when I saw the poster. Man I am just hoping for some crazy death traps in there somewhere.

Could care less about title, just the fact that these 2 are in a poster together is fun enough for me
