The manliness begins with a poster for Expendables 2 and a spoilery plot

05.11.2011

Are you all pretty psyched for EXPENDABLES 2?

Of course you are! You didn't want to see Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sly Stallone open a Planet Hollywood-- you wanted to have them kick ass together! It's one of your greatest dreams. While Willis and Schwarzenegger didn't do a whole lot of ass kicking in the first installment, maybe they'll surprise us in the second. Willis and Stallone have already confirmed their involvement, so we just need Arnie and some other action blood to jump on board.

First Showing found our first possible teaser poster for EXPENDABLES 2 while browsing the dailies. It's pretty manly. Also, the plot for the film has been revealed over at Nu Image's website.

The plot DOES CONTAIN SPOILERS! If you want to see it, then scroll below the poster. If not, check out the poster and call it a day.

-

"The Expendables are back and this time it's personal! After Tool (Mickey Rourke), the heart and soul of the Expendables, is brutally murdered on a mission, his comrades swear to avenge him. They're not the only ones who want blood. Tool’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, complicating matters when she is captured and ransomed by a ruthless dictator plotting to destroy a resistance movement. Now Barney and the Expendables must risk everything to save her and humanity."

Excellent. Now if only Sly could drop the shaky cam, and bring Arnold for the third and final Expendables (save the biggest showdown Arnold/Sly for last !)

When I think crazy . . .

. . . I think of Woody Harrelson. Not so much as an action star, but bat-shit crazy enough to do the bidding of the evil dictator. Show Woody some love!!

Glass Eye of the Tiger

I hope this doesn't take place in some imaginary South American country again. Take it to central Africa. Have Carl Weathers play a crazy, jacked up, glass-eyed Dictator that likes to cut off people's hands and feet, with Michael Clarke Duncan as his mute enforcer and Van Damme as some ex-Legionnaire type guy that works for him Stateside. Some shit like that.

Another dictator, another girl in danger? Plotwise this doesn´t sound all that exciting. Extra Tidbit: Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins or Donni Yen (He would kick Jet Li´s ass if they are able to get him out of Hong Kong for a movie).

Ah jeez, so yet again some useless

female tries to be a revolutionary and fails miserably; sound like a retread of the first film, fellas? Hey, Stallong: how about getting into the 21st Century? I'd want to see an ass-kicking female in The Expendables who can hold her own against the big boys. Somebody like Michelle Yeoh or Michelle Rodriguez.

You can't go wrong with this movie, just get a bunch of action stars and blow shit up. The guys everybody is saying would be great (Ahnold, JCVD, Segal) but for the villian I think they should get someone like Christoph Waltz to play the same character he has been playing since Basterds. A guy that is small in stature but could be the biggest bad ass in the entire movie. Of course Hugo Weaving could do the same I think they are pretty much interchangeable nowadays.

Please give Dolph a bigger Part and a better Mic

Sarah Michelle Gellar as Tool's daughter.

With JCVD a given, I'd fill out Bruce Willis or Arnie's team with Kurt Russell, the Rock, Demi Moore, and Forrest Whitaker. Special cameo: Clint Eastwood as the retired 'founding' Expendable.

Sounds interesting. I loved the original and thought it was an awesome throwback to old school tough guy films like The Magnificent Seven and The Dirty Dozen, so I'm very excited about the second one.

Regarding the Extra Tidbit: Although Thomas Jane is starring alongside Stallone in Headshot I would LOVE for him to be in The Expendables II. Mark Wahlberg would be a good choice too. I'm sure it's a stretch but a one-scene-cameo by Clint Eastwood would be killer.

Yeah, didn't care much for the first film. Besides the badass final action scene, it was remotely interesting. Even bringing together several of film's greatest badasses couldn't save it from just being a little too dull, even by action film standards. How about, this time around, we stop pretending that we're trying to play this as a dramatic and serious film and just get on with the action. Cause really, that's all anyone wants to see here. Also, killing off Rourke is a terrible idea.

Rourke's performance was the only cool thing about the first one

Along with the Arnie/Sly/Willis showdown, of course. But to kill off Rourke (presumably because he turned the role down? I know he only did the first flick as a favor to Stallone) is pretty lame. His little motivational speech to Stallone was the only well-acted and remotely convincing scene in the entire film.

Maybe they'll have more than two action scenes in this one? I mean, I know the guys are old now, but if you're going to make an action movie, you better have action in the action movie. Not closeups of Mickey Rourke drooling out of his crackpipe burnt teeth.

The plot made me sad though... btw I don't think it's really spoiler material, it's the basis of the whole movie - it's gonna be common knowledge when the trailers come out and such.

After Box (Mickey Rourke), the heart and soul (of which Rourke has neither) of the Expendables, is asking for too much money and is written out of the script, his comrades swear to avenge him! They're not the only ones who want blood. Box’s beautiful young and wild daughter Fiona embarks on her own revenge mission, fails miserably and is captured by a ruthless dictator who doesn't just kill her for some reason, probably because she's hot but there probably won't even be a nice titty shot, we'll probably just waterboard her or something... Now Barney and the Expendables must risk Arnold Schwarzenegger biological clock and Jason Statham's dwindling appeal to save her and her sweaty boobs.

for an awful franchise. that plot sucks, they have to rescue a girl who's being held captive by an evil dictator? I'm not sure part one even had a plot, but i think that was it.
