What Movie Poster Has the Most Guns On It?

A logical person might think that the movie poster for "2 Guns" would only feature a total of two guns. And that logical person would be correct. So let's move on.

Indeed, let's move on to those movie posters that outdo themselves in the gun department. To those posters who can ask us to "check out these guns" without making us want to vomit.

Posters with three guns or four guns or even six guns need not apply. This is the creme de la creme, folks.

The nine posters with the most guns. Let's lock and load! (Sorry. So, so sorry.)

9. 'Act of Valour' (2012) — 7 Guns

Act of Valour

Let's be serious: There was no way anyone appearing on the "Act of Valour" poster was going to be without a gun. They are all silhouettes, indistinguishable in anyone's eyes except that they are marines with machine guns. That's what the entire movie encompassed. Of course, I didn't see the movie, but it would have been a relative shock had it featured any character that didn't regularly carry around an assault rifle. In fact, had the previews showcased a diminutive guy with glasses who served as the agent for the seven marines and made pithy comments as they blew stuff up around him, I probably would have seen the movie. For shame, "Act of Valour." You missed out on my 12 dollars. Get More »

Questions and Answers with Dolph Lundgren

Dolph Lundgren has been the consummate action star since the 1980s, when he burst onto the film scene in the Bond flick, "A View to a Kill," before playing Rocky's Russian nemesis Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV" and He-Man in "Masters of the Universe."

He took on a different-than-usual challenge recently, playing the famous psychologist Dr. Sage Mennox in the ensemble comedy-drama, "Small Apartments."

Lundgren talked briefly with NextMovie about black hair dye, being honest with yourself, and which cast member of "The Expendables" would pose a threat to him in a fight. Get More »

10 Awesome Things You Didn't Know About Dolph Lundgren

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning Magnet Releasing

There have been a lot of cool stories to come out of Hollywood in the last couple of years, but for our money one of the coolest is the sudden and unexpected career resurgence of Dolph Lundgren, who came out of nowhere (aka Europe) to reclaim his action star title with his turn as the despicable Gunnar Jensen in 2010's "The Expendables."

Now, Lundgren is kicking it into even higher gear with "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning," which reunites him with his "Expendables 2" co-star Jean-Claude Van Damme for the sixth (!) installment of their long-running sci-fi series. Get More »

Q&A: Steven Seagal Talks 'The Expendables' With 'Maximum Conviction'

Getty Images

Steven Seagal is a man of many talents: International movie star, TV action hero, part-time law enforcer and full-time ass kicker. He even sings the blues and made the ponytail look manly.

In his newest action flick "Maximum Conviction" – coming to DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 6th – Seagal teams with "Stone Cold"' Steve Austin to battle a team of elite mercenaries after the transportation of two inmates goes awry. The movie is vintage Seagal, complete epic gun fights, explosions, witty puns and all the bone-crunching Aikido one can handle in 90 minutes.

Taking a pause from breaking necks and limbs, Steven took the time to sit down with us and discuss upcoming projects, his thoughts on "The Expendables" franchise (hint: he doesn't love it) and the odds that we'll ever refer to him as President Seagal. Get More »

'The Expendables 2' Shoots Down the Competition

The Expendables 2

"The Expendables 2" won the box office for the second weekend in a row with just $13.5 million, according to, thanks mostly to one of the weakest crop of new releases in recent memory.

Just how bad was it? Not one of the new releases managed to make even $7 million, allowing "The Bourne Legacy" to earn second spot with only $9.3 million. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Premium Rush," Kristen Bell's "Hit and Run" and Ashley Greene's "The Apparition" were among the new films that crashed and burned.

For a full run down of the weekend box office, including figures for returning films "ParaNorman" and "The Campaign," head to Get More »

Exclusive Poster: 'The EXXXpendables 3'

Ready For Action? And we mean that kind of "action."

Forget the all-female riff on "The Expendables" that's apparently now in development — it's the porn star version we really want to see! Well, maybe "see" is too strong a word ... it would be amusing to know that it at least exists, right?

Just think about it: Every, er, "action scene" in the movie ends with an explosion. Now this is just the kind of thing that's needed to shake up (or blow up, rather) the adult entertainment industry.

Check out the poster below, courtesy of our own adult film star, Old Red Jalopy. And let your imagination take you where it will.
