The Expendables 2 finally gets its "official" rating; wanna guess what it is?

Last week, we brought you word from EXPENDABLES 2 director Simon West that the action-packed sequel would be rated R. As Lionsgate didn't like the fact that we posted that portion from our interview with West, we had to take down his exact quote... but what he told us left little doubt that the notion of a PG-13 version was nothing more than a bad dream/joke.

So it goes that today it has become official: THE EXPENDABLES 2 has been rated R for strong violence, language and brief sexuality. Ohh, wonder who's bringing the sexuality. Is it Crews? I bet it's Crews.

In The Expendables 2, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.

THE EXPENDABLES 2 will savagely blow your balls off on AUGUST 17th.
