Expendables 2 gets a testosterone-soaked poster

A new poster has arrived for Expendables 2 (looks like they've done away with the "The") and predictably, it's as macho as a pub brawl before a Millwall game.

The poster shows the bulk of the film’s grizzled stars firing their big guns in unison, including new additions Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris. Arnie is also on display, clinging to a massive firearm in the way a small child might hold a security blanket.

Sandwiched between all those rippling biceps is Chinese actress Nan Yu, who surprisingly gets the nod ahead of fellow newcomer Liam Hemsworth. Perhaps he wasn’t considered gruff enough to sell the film.

Expendables 2 arrives in UK screens on 17 August 2012. In the meantime, you can shout one-liners at the snarl-tastic poster below…
