THE NEWS BUNDLE: Final Poster for 'The Expendables 2' Packs Everyone Together in the Heat of War

With a couple of action movies out of the gate already, summer has been off to a blockbuster start with plenty of adrenaline so far. But, it seems like Lionsgate is saving the more muscle for last as they pack some of the biggest action stars of the planet into one singular movie for the second time as The Expendables 2 still has yet to be released. While their hands are busy setting up the next installment in The Hunger Games, we've seen plenty of clips so far that have shown the badass men kicking ass (without any real signs of story). Now, they're all getting back together in the final poster that has more special effects than a Michael Bay movie.

After taking a seemingly simple job for Mr. Church (Bruce Willis), the Expendables find their plans going awry and one of their own is brutally murdered by rival mercenary Jean Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme). The Expendables set out into hostile territory — with their new members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) — to put a stop to a deadly weapon and gain their revenge against the villain who killed their brother.

The Expendables 2, directed by Simon West, and starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and more, will open on August 17th.
