Comic-Con: Stallone and Schwarzenegger target Hall H
And Terry Crews and Randy Couture. And Dolph Lundgren. And Jean-Claude Van Damme.
You can almost smell the cordite, can’t you? That’s the announced panel for “The Expendables 2”; it will convene late Thursday afternoon at Comic-Con International. The panelists will be sitting on the dais in Hall H but, really, shouldn’t this collective gather in a Texas steel cage? Or a bunker with a bare-bones weight room and an oak and brass cigar bar?
At right is the first look at the collectors poster that Lionsgate will be handing out (while supplies last) at the San Diego pop culture expo. The original is an oil on canvas piece, which was used to create the poster as well as 250 limited-edition prints on specialty canvas paper, to be distributed at Comic Con and signed by the cast.
The movie is a sequel to the 2010 action film that made $274 million worldwide with its brass-knuckle attitude and camouflage soul. The sequel arrives Aug. 17 with (in addition to the previously named silver-screen commandos) Jason Statham, Jet Li, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth and Bruce Willis.
I’m moderating the panel on Thursday and would love to to hear your suggestions for questions. If I do use one your questions I’ll mention your name from the stage.
