New Expendables 2 Poster Is Here
Back for war...

17 June 2012  |  Written by James White

Fire. Explosions. Guns. A plane. Knives. The primarily older cast looking like they’d tear your spine out if you so much as glance at them in the wrong way. Blimey, the posters for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 have gotten a bit violent, haven’t they? Rest easy Twi-hards! It’s the new promo image for The Expendables 2, which you can see below.

Yes, it’s pretty much standard operating procedure for the Expendables franchise.

You’ll know the plot by now: Sly’s Barney Ross and his assembled band of mercenaries are recruited by Willis’ Church to go on what should be an easy mission. But it’s a job that leaves one of their number dead and the rest growling for revenge. So with a new, younger member (Liam Hemsworth’s Bill “The Kid” Timmons) and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Trench along for the ride, they decide to exact violent justice while also trying to save the world from nutcase terrorist type Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme, playing a bad guy with less of a name and more of a wink).

With Simon West marshalling the troops this time, The Expendables 2 will shoot into cinemas on August 17. Check out the latest trailer right here…

At 23 seconds into the trailer
Is that an *invisible* gun? Or am I missing something? Other than that, loving the nods and winks. Killing a helicopter with a bike, the armoured truck with Knock Knock written on it. Genius. Looking forward to it. More
