Add one more angry man to this poster and you’ll have a Jack Lemmon classic. The forthcoming amalgamation of Hollywood’s most outstanding vessels of testosterone, The Expendables 2, has released one final poster (courtesy of Yahoo), featuring each of its human punches standing tall and proud amidst a scene of fire and exploding fighter planes. Center stage is the film’s star, Sylvester Stallone, equipped with a pair of guns, a drooping beret (the badass kind, not the artsy kind), and a belt buckle you could see from space… or at least the altitude of an exploding fighter plane.
Surrounding Stallone are costars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, and just about every other conceivable name in the contemporary field of making beta males shudder. Expendable-in-training, young Liam Hemsworth, is resigned to the back row… even if the Hunger Games audience isn’t exactly The Expendables 2’s target demographic, but it’s still surprising to see such a prominent rising star so out of focus in the promotional material of an upcoming blockbuster-to-be.
If you’re in the mood for some action this summer, The Expendables 2 is sure to deliver. Peruse the poster, do a couple of pushups, and then check out the film, in theaters August 17.
