Two new images from The Expendables 2 have landed online. The images feature star Sylvester Stallone and franchise newcomer Yu Nan. Nan will makes sure the new movie isn’t a total sausage fest because, believe it or not, women can kill armies of faceless bad guys as well. Guns aren’t sexist. I have no idea what’s happening in these scenes, but I’m crossing my fingers I like the sequel more than the original. I desperately wanted to be a fan of the first movie, but it felt soulless and artificial. It’s not enough to simply see your favorite action stars sharing the screen.
Hit the jump to check out the new images. The film also stars Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Expendables 2 opens August 17th.
Here’s the official synopsis for 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….
