New Crank 2 Poster Online
Brace yourself for the Stath

10 February 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Yahoo Movies

submit to reddit

A few naysayers in the Empire forums have suggested that we not call Jason Statham "The Stath", and that our enthusiasm for the bonkers Crank: High Voltage might be misplaced. But seriously, folks, take a look at this new poster and think again: it's clearly going to be awesomely over the top.

This sequel of course sees the Stath's Chev Chelios wake up following his apparent death at the end of the first film to find his indestructible heart being removed by organ harvesters. They replace it with an electric model to keep him going while they cut out the rest of his superior innards. Unfortunately for them, Chelios has other ideas and goes hunting his heart - while giving himself regular electric shocks to keep his dicky replacement ticker running. Hence this poster. Ouch.

The film's out on April 17, which by our count is not nearly soon enough. Yes, we're looking forward to this nonsense. And if you're not, it could well be that you're dead inside.

RE: Halo14
Agreed, i bought Death Proof on DVD and wished i hadn't bothered, it was one of the worst films i have ever seen (and trust me, i've seen some total stinkers in my time). Crank 2 however looks like it will be amazing fun, Jason Statham movies are one of my favourite guilty pleasures. More

Death Proof vs Crank
Did anybody pay money money to watch Death Proof? Unfortunatley I did. But I'm not giving up on Statham. Bring on Crank 2!!! More

OMG!!!
This looks so awesome. And my anticipation just increased now I've found out that not only does this have the Staht, but Corey "I look like a 12 year old acloholic" Haim is in it too. Bring it on! ! ! ! More

That's gotta be one of the best posters ever. Ultra-twisted and very cool...just like the first film so it should fuckin' crazy! More

A blast
The first one ruled and I seriously hope this doesn't disappoint. For me the first one came out of nowhere and was fine entertainment, unlike other hyped over-the-top action such as Shoot Em Up, which was a bit dull. They don't have to be good, just entertaining. More
