Check out the new images along with their related synopses below (via USA Today).

Let’s kick this off with The Expendables 2:

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….

Sticking with sequels, here’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation:

A follow-up to the 2009 release of G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA, which grossed over $300M worldwide, Paramount Pictures, MGM and Skydance Productions, in association with HASBRO and di Bonaventura Pictures, commences production on G.I. JOE: RETALIATION. In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. The film stars D.J. Cotrona, Byung-hun Lee, Ray Park, Adrianne Palicki, Jonathan Pryce, RZA, Ray Stevenson, Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson. Directed by Jon M. Chu, and produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Brian Goldner, from a screenplay by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick based on Hasbro’s G.I. Joe(R) characters, the film is scheduled to be released on June 29,2012.


Finally, here’s another images from The Amazing Spider-Man:

Like most teenagers his age, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today.  In his journey to put the pieces of his past together he uncovers a secret his father held…a secret that will ultimately shape his destiny as Spider-Man.  This is the first in a series of movies that tells a different side of the Peter Parker story.  On July 3rd, 2012, the untold story begins.

    This is where the cameo of Stan Lee happens. He’s a librarian with earphones and is oblivious of the fight between Spidey and the Lizard happening behind him.

  • dpramroop

    am i the only one thinking the gi joe pic is photoshopped.

    • phee34

      No you’re not. I thought that too. Especially in the centre from their heads, down and around Dwayne Johnson’s left arm and Bruce Willis’ right arm. The lighting doesn’t look right and the edges are very harsh. Maybe green screen?

      • brandon

        If you loo closely in the trailer, a lot of the scenes that feature Bruce Willis, or take place in rural U.S. are green-screened.

  • Haha

    Hahah that Gi joe pic is REALLY fake and REALLY bad

    “Look its Rock and Willis in a movie scene together!!! Buy a ticket!!”

    Its so bad its insulting. Tsk tsk marketing dept, just show us cool action stills
    of the different Joes characters, not just these two.
    I thought there were other characters in this movie.

    And get a new photoshop guy : /
