      Although the 1st Expendables was mediocre, how could you not love going to see something like this on the basis of star-power alone? Those movie posters are pretty cool too. I like how calm Chuck Norris is in his, haha, but as someone else said they accidentally gave him a gun. In reality, he'd just be standing there with his arms crossed and that'd be it. Also love the crazy look on Terry Crews's face! BTW, who's Hemsworth again?

      ^ I can see how they want to mix things up but I think it'd keep its cache if they stuck with the classics. I had to look up who Yu Nan was too. Not sure why they felt it necessary to throw in a female this time around.

      JCVD poster is my fav. The Norris poster along with a few others with fingers on triggers makes me sad.

      I'd rather they have cast Steven Segal instead of him. If they make an Expendables 3, they should skip on casting any action movie noobs.

      I can't wait to see this sequel.

      ....also, they've got some nice Panerai product placement in these posters. I recall a blatant "watch shot" towards the end of the first Expendables when they were checking on the timing of the big explosives, but I don't recall if it was a Panerai or not.

      This watch retails at around $10,000.

      AGREED. I totally appreciate the watch, but I would NEVER spend that much on a watch.

      Arnold just defied the laws of physics with the door as it mysteriously floats in the air for a few.

      Also ive read that chuck norris himself was the only reason this went from an r rating to a pg rating. Apparently he didnt want such expliciy language entering our fragile little minds.

      But then again, ive also heard that the only reason this movie was made was because chuck norris allowed it!

      Rumor. Sly said it would be definitively an R movie.

      I think I was the only one in the theater genuinely excited for this.
