Looking as if Sylvester Stallone took one look at the horrible theatrical poster for The Dark Knight Rises and said, “hey could we do that, but even crappier?,” the final theatrical poster for The Expendables 2 is a sight to behold. Featuring cartoonish flames, photoshopped heads floating on top of bodies, and actors with about 25 years sandblasted off of their faces, The Expendables 2 poster may be in the running for worst poster of the year. Check it out below.
The Expendables 2 concerns Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews—deep breath, hang on, there are a lot of damn names here—Liam Hemsworth, and Yu Nan teaming up to take a job handed to them by Bruce Willis. Of course, something goes wrong, someone dies, Stallone gets mad, and then Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, and Jean-Claude Van Damme show up to make things go boom a whole lot. That’s… that’s pretty much it.
The Expendables was a surprise hit two years ago, and, as is the case with all successful Stallone projects, it’s been given the sequel treatment. No word yet on whether or not the series will continue if the sequel is successful, but… oh, you know what? Insert your own The Expendables in the Nursing Home joke here. I’m still going cross-eyed from the poster.
What do you think of the newest Expendables 2 poster?
