We haven’t seen all that much from The Expendables 2, outside of one very thin teaser trailer, a few photos, and that whole conversation over whether the film will be rated R or PG-13. (It will be R. Unless it isn’t.)

This movie being what it is, however, I don’t know how much we really need to see. Simon West directs the sequel to the biggest-ever collection of aged action heroes (and Liam Hemsworth), and anyone who sees the lineup pretty much knows what they’re in for. But maybe you want to see what guys like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis and everyone’s favorite Van Damme, Jean-Claude, looks like in the film. In that case, the twelve character posters below will do the trick. It’s like The Dirty Dozen, if they were The Avengers, or vice versa.

The Expendables 2 stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Yu Nan, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  It opens August 17th.

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….
