Movie blog sites First Showing and Screen Rant have posted the first look at "The Expendables 2" poster released at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, as well as the official synopsis of the testosterone driven sequel that has Sylvester Stallone and his rag-tag team of mercenaries back on the job! Be warned, the plot contains major SPOILERS for those who want to shy away from the story of the sequel, so best turn your eyes away now!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
"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."
There you have it! Looks like things are going to turn up a notch action-wise for the sequel, so even if Sly isn't directing, he'll be back in full force as Barney Ross, leading the team built for guns, blaze, and glory! Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are coming back as well, and rumor has it that Jean-Claude Van Damme and other action stars may be joining in too. We'll just have to wait and see how things turn out. For more info, visit the source posts at First Showing and Screen Rant!
The Expendables 2 is set to be released on August 17, 2012!
