Action extravaganza Expendables 2 unveiled their latest one-sheet today, showcasing the cast in all their glory.

A follow-up to the original box-office smash, the sequel will see the familiar faces joined by the likes of Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth.

I must admit I enjoyed the idea the first time around, although not as much as I had hoped.

But with more Arnie and Bruce promised, this sequel really could deliver.

With the storyline this time round featuring six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium, expect more bonecrunching thrills and spills as the action heavyweights jostle for supremacy.

The Expendables 2 crashes into cinemas in the UK on August 16.

We have it ticked in the box labelled ‘interesting’.
