"The Expendables 2" : Big Enough, Ugly Enough

Sneak Peek the new poster showcasing the world's most popular, now aging and grizzled action stars as 'noble mercenaries' in the upcoming $100 million thriller "The Expendables 2", starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Liam Hemsworth, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Directed by Simon West and written by David Agosto and Ken Kaufman, the film is based on a story by Stallone :

" payback for taking out the corrupt CIA agent 'Monroe' (Eric Roberts) in the first 'Expendables' movie, 'Agent Church' (Willis) forces the 'Expendables' to do an 'easy mission' by retrieving a missing CIA package from 'Gazak', a civil war torn country in Eastern Europe. But the mission turns deadly when the Expendables are ambushed by a team of ruthless rival mercs, the 'Sangunaires', competing to get the same package. 'Tool' (Mickey Rourke), the heart and soul of the Expendables is murdered by 'Vilain', leader of the bloodthirsty guns for hire. Still, the Expendables manage to pull of the mission and return with the CIA package, but it's a hollow victory.

"As their thoughts turn from grief to revenge, Tool's beautiful young daughter 'Fiona' shows up. Cut from the same stone as her dad, she wants to join the Expendables when they hunt down Vilain and his men. 'Barney' (Stallone) promises her the Expendables will avenge Tool's death, but will not risk putting his best friend's daughter in harm's way.

But Fiona seeks revenge in her own way, complicating matters for Barney..."

From Nu Image and Millennium Films, Lionsgate will distribute "The Expendables 2" August 17, 2012.
