The Expendables gets a poster and you get a boner

03.18.2010

UPDATE - Our man at ShoWest, Ryan, wrote in with a brief impression on the official trailer, which just premiered at the fest: There seems to be a lot of hype surrounding Sylvestor Stallone's action flick The Expendables, which, among other things, brings Dolph Lungron back to the big screen (a feat in and of itself). Earlier tonight, the ShoWest crowd was treated to a new trailer for the film, which greatly improves upon the earlier internet-exclusive teaser. There are plenty of explosions and one-liners throughout, and even cameos by Bruce Willis and Arnold himself. If the enthusiasm of the crowd is any indication, this movie is going to be a huge hit.

One of the films that we're most looking forward to this year is definitely THE EXPENDABLES, despite the fact that the folks behind the film, Lionsgate, ignores us like we're expendable ourselves (zing!). The film is slated to hit theaters on August 13th, but today we see what is most likely the film's teaser poster (at least I hope so) which didn't do much for me personally, especially since I've already seen that "skull figure" in a variety of its art so far. Mind you, I looooove the weapons and shit!

Look at the names at the top of the poster though: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Terry Crews and Mickey Rourke! Not to mention Eric Roberts, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo and fun cameos like Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis (oh, and hottie Charisma Carpenter). Seriously man, show me a list and let me sign up today! That said, here's hoping the next poster actually shows us some of these dudes, instead of just their last names. Or better yet: character posters!!! What think you guys?

Love the poster.

But I thought this was supposed to be August 20th, Basterds opening weekend. I don't know how Scott Pilgrim will hold up against this.

As far as posters go, this is probably as close as they come to instant classic.

This is one movie that's a must-see opening night or at midnight with as many enthusiastic fans as you, clapping and cheering at every glorious explosion and one liner.

Van Damme obviously had some good reason not to be a part of the film. He's almost always been about "character", even if he has slipped up a few times. In recent years, he's considered character more important than ever, and if Stallone offered him a poorly written or poorly explained character, I have no problem with him turning down a role. Despite how fucking badass it would be.

Almost, righteous poster.

Yaay 2010 the return of the ensemble actioner. The Expendables, The A-Team, Machete, Predators and The Losers. The Expendables is number 1 on my list this year though. I'm a child of the 80's actioner so this is heaven to me. Machete is out this year yeah??

Cool.

I also find it amusing that someone on the boards was critisised for labelling something boner worthy, and yet as soon as 'boss man' says the same thing everyone loves it...

Good poster! Sends the message without resorting photoshopped heads. Good to see Lundgren's name appear in the marketing. lol@emjoi!

Awesome poster. I'm a wrestling fan (yeah call it bullshit, call me naive, whatever...it's entertaining) so I'm really waiting to see what Austin does in this. The guy's badass in action movies, gotta' give him that. Plus this thing's just painted with adrenaline and testosterone and manpower and just plain ol' bloodthirsty guys (some of which used to be hooked onto steroids). Good times, good times. :)

Love the poster. Personally I would like to see a poster that features all the casts - not just their names, but their actual photos.

Wow, that poster looks better than the awful trailer that came out. Tis a shame. I still think it's awesome that Terry Crews can now officially just go by his last name. That's awesome. He's come a long way. He's also the funniest of the bunch.

I had no clue Charisma Carpenter was in this flick. I'm actually watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer as I type. My excitement-meter for this movie is officially redlining.
