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 »

Is Mel Gibson the latest smoldering gent to land a role in Sylvester Stallone's upcoming blow-em-up flick "The Expendables 3?"

Maybe so ... if you can believe the wonderful world of celebrities on Twitter.

The famed "Rocky" actor and all around wiiise guy tweeted this not-so-cryptic message to his account earlier this week, declaring "Max Max vs Barney Ross....."

Infographic: The Jason Statham Ass-Kick Count

254: The number of combined victims of "Redemption" star Jason Statham ass-kickings over his film career, as we've tallied and created visual representation for exclusively here on NextMovie.


What constitutes an 'ass-kicking'? Glad you asked. It ranges from as harmless as "incapacitating a bad guy to question him" to as devastating as "stabbing a bad guy in the neck." (Stabbings were deemed allowable because Statham is usually doing something cool with his knives, like throwing them or spinning them in his hand for no reason.)

Do guns count? Of course not.

The 20 Most Phallic Movie Images Ever

Penis imagery: Like love, it's all around us.

Really, though, in movies, it's everywhere. And most likely, depending on the director, it's completely intentional. Yes, most of the directors you casually enjoy are actually perverted creep shows. Like Bruce Hornsby once so eloquently put it, that's just the way it is, folks. You had to learn sometime.

Don't believe us? Here are 20 not-so-subtle examples of phallic movie stills that will have you saying to yourself, "Wow, I didn't realize that Jean-Claude Van Damme with a Jheri curl could get any creepier."

50 Upcoming Movie Sequels (Yep, 50)

Army of Darkness Universal

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »

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 »

'SNL' Takes On 'Taken 2'


What exactly would you get if you took the intensity of "Taken 2" and merged it with the all-out action of "The Expendables 2?" Mayhem? Slaughter? A death toll bigger the the population of many European nations?

All of those seem like reasonable guesses, but thanks to "Saturday Night Live," we now know the real answer: Complete and utter hilarity. Get More »

Gina Carano Crushes Her Way Into All-Female 'Expendables'

Gina Carano is the first to take the leap.

Producer Adi Shankar seems serious about making what would be a dream come true for every action fan on the planet, and he's taken the first step toward making the proposed all-female riff on "The Expendables" a reality: He's gotten the former MMA champion to star in it, according to Variety.

Carano (who was known as 'Crush' on "American Gladiators") is the first of hopefully many "action-oriented actresses" to officially sign on to the project. For Shenkar, having the "Haywire" star involved was a no-brainer. Get More »
