Now that we’re past that whole messy ‘Chuck Norris doesn’t do swearing’ controversy which threatened to transform Sly Stallone‘s “The Expendables 2″ from a proudly retro, manic action slugfest into a polite and socially acceptable family fun farrago – it’s still R-rated in the States and will probably again be 18-rated in the UK – we can get back to the important business of looking at pictures of elderly gentlemen shooting randomly at things.
In a break with tradition, you’ll notice in the MTV Movies Blog still above that our Chuck is rocking the Indigo-lensed sunglasses with his absurdly over-sized rifle – a bold fashion statement which contrasts nicely with his urban combat wear and charming baseball cap. It’s a look, non?
And – ooh, what a beauty of a picture. Sly, Arnold and Bruce together again and shooting at things in the middle distance with a bunch of recently smashed glass strewn around them – it’s like old times, friends.
“The Expendables 2” kicks down your door, interrogates your cat and makes a general mess of your carpet on August 17th in the US and UK.
