Why am I excited about The Expendables 2? Clue: It has nothing to do with Stallone, Willis, Schwarzenegger, Norris or any of the other "big" action stars. Nope. I've got news for you, folks: there's one name missing from the new Expendables 2 poster. I refer, of course, to Novak Djokovic.
That's right. Novak Djokovic is in The Expendables 2. Playing himself. And somehow this has been completely omitted from all marketing materials thus far. No wonder the new poster looks so boring.
For those who don't think Novak is badass enough to be in The Expendables, here's a reality check for you:
1. He's the world's greatest tennis player.
2. He's a robot (probably).
3. He's NOVAK DJOKOVIC.
4. The guy has a 10-foot statue of himself as a terracotta warrior in his restaurant (called "Novak's") in Belgrade. It looks like this. (Yes, really.)
Does Bruce Willis have a statue of himself dressed as a terracotta warrior in his own Bruce Willis-themed restaurant? I DON'T THINK SO.
Which means The Expendables 2 poster is in need of some big changes. So I've gone ahead and made them for you...
That's better. (Note to Lionsgate: There's a non-animated version here. Get on it.)
N.B. For those who think that Novak Djokovic is not blending in seamlessly enough with the manly male men on the rest of the poster, here's another version that makes a bit more sense:
Well, of COURSE he's eating the fucking plane.
Novak Djokovic smashes his way into cinemas on Friday 17th August.
