Sly and Arnie star in first poster for Escape Plan

Escape Plan , the upcoming action flick formerly known as The Tomb , has released a first official poster online, featuring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger banged up in a futuristic prison.

As is appropriate for a film starring two such grizzled heroes, everything about the new poster screams retro action movie, from the metallic title font to the surname-only cast credits!

The new film will see Stallone play an expert on structural security, who finds himself forced to break out of a prison of his own design after being framed for a crime he didn't commit.

Schwarzenegger plays one of the joint's old lags, a prickly character Stallone will have to buddy up with if he wants to make it out unscathed. Mismatched partnership ahoy!

Directed by Mikael Håfström and co-starring Jim Caviezel, Sam Neill and Vincent D'Onofrio, Escape Plan will open in the US on 18 October 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.
