The release of the testosterone charged sequel to The Expendables is just around the corner, and, as a result, publicity for the action packed geriatric shit show is gearing up to inescapable levels.
The cast for the film reads as a veritable roll call for virtually every 80′s action movie icon ever, and while Dolph Lundgren was previously (and awesomely) given his very own poster showcasing his ability to aggressively scowl while looking badass, he’s kind of getting the shaft in the most recent one.
I wouldn’t cut in front of this guy in line at the grocery store.
Poor old Dolph really is getting hosed in the latest poster — the guy stole the show and was the best part in the original The Expendables movie yet in the latest advert he gets squished into the back row with half his face covered in a shadow cast by a big ass knife?
Come on! Dolph is only 2 inches taller than Jean-Claude Van Damme in that poster despite being a 6’5 inch giant who towers over “The Muscles From Brussels” (who in reality clocks in at a measly 5’8 inches).
Are Lundgren fans really supposed to be okay with their cinematic hero getting short-changed in such an obvious and unfair manner? I think not.
