Size Matters To Stallone!

| Filed under: Film FlickersSylvester Stallone

alg_expendables_poster.jpg

Alright, so look at this movie poster for The Expendables. If you live in any kind of metropolitan area, you've surely seen this picture on a billboard or two.

Now, anything you notice that is kind of… odd? C'mon, look closer. Borrow your Dad's reading glasses if you think that will help. (It won't.)

Give up? Well, let us just tell you then - Mr. Sly Stallone is over-compensating…his height.

Notice how the Italian Stallion seems to be standing on an equal playing field with the rest of the boys? Well, in real life, Bruce Willis stands about 3 inches taller than Sly and Dolph Lundgren lurches over everyone at 6 feet, 4-and-a-quarter inches up in the air!

Because he is a sad, strange little midget of a man (and because he wrote, directed, & starred in the damn thing), Sly insisted that the image be change so that everyone looked relatively the same height.

You should be proud with what you've got, bb! (Even if at times it is riddled with steroids!)

    mmmm….dolph lundgren is in that?!

    *giggle*

    Oh my god, Perez! You've exposed Hollywood's biggest secret…that in 'real life' actors and actresses aren't always the same that they are on screen! Next thing you'll tell us is that sometimes actors stand on apple crates to change their on screen height.

    As for calling Sly a 'sad little midget of a man?' Do you know him personally? When did you create one of the most memorable and beloved characters that the movie world has ever seen?

    Grow up.

    Actually YOU are the sad, strange little midget of a man. And you're still a blob of a human being. You should really not be throwing any stones fatty.



  5. 5

    So sad. What did he ever do to you, Mario? This is Hollywood. Tom Cruise is only 5 foot 4. Hollywood stars do that sort of thing. Justin Bieber is really a 24-year old lesbian.

    Are you dumb? Its the perspective. They are standing in a triangle formation, of course the person at the front looks bigger.



  7. 7

    Well Dolph actually does look taller than the rest of the cast and it looks like Sly is in the front and everyone goes back at an angle and if you aren't stupid you can see that in fact Bruce does look like he would be taller than Sly. I do not believe this story.

    It's shocking that Jason Statham agreed to appear on this travesty. BTW, there's been no dictators in Latin America in a long time (and they were all backed by the CIA, except for Fidel Castro). Sly is an aging, puke-inducing douche.



  9. 9

    Duh… Stallone doesn't need steroids. He trains a lot, that's all. You are so damn jealous about anyone who succeeds.



  10. 10

    what the fuck? your dissing Sly? its a fucking promotional poster, and Sly is a legend and all of his fans including me are grateful for this movie you fat fucking douchebag

    He has to be one of the ugliest human beings on the planet.



  12. 12

    Big Deal! They do that kinda shit all the time for movie posters.
    DON'T FUCK WITH ROCKY, YOU A-HOLE!!!

    I might agree if he is made to be equally tall in the film, but if not, this is just half Hollywood and other half common sense - the poster would look quite uneven if everyone was different height and Dolph would tower them all.



  14. 14

    Actually, he also does this alot in his films. I was watching John Rambo on tv this weekend (not by choice) and he constantly walked and seemed to tower over everyone but he always used small chinese men…..



  15. 15

    I don't think it was altered at all. The picture shows some people forward, and some people farther back. He's in the very front, giving him some extra height, where Willis is towards the back, taking away from his height.

    I lost respect for the man ever since a personal assistant of his auditioned for a part in a movie that Sylvester was going to do and had such a great audition that the producers gave him the part right away. Sylvester then f*$&$ed up the guy's big break by whining to the producers by insisting that he not be given the park saying "you know how hard it is to find somebody who is good at washing my car". What an a&%hole!

    It's called closer objects looking bigger and farther objects looking smaller. Did you even go to school?? This movie looks like it should be fun! So many manly men in one movie!

    You Dumbass Twink!

    It's called in the art world…"perspective".

    *

    Take it you never took art class. Look at their feet, moron. Notice something?

    *

    Notice Stallone's up front and the others are staggered back?

    *

    Goddamn! Some mothers' dumbass, fame whoring, celeb-wannabe fairies.

    …its an optical illusion, the reason Stallone is bigger then the rest is because they are father back, also he is the leader of the group so subconsciously you recognize him first in the poster.

    Time to pass the 4th grade, Mario

    Are you fucking serious Perez? If you weren't such a retard you would know that this happens ALL THE TIME.

    HAve you seriously never heard of force perspective? Due to the fact that everyone is standing in a V formation the people at the end are going to look smaller than the people in the middle since they are standing further back from the camera.
    You really are dumb.



  22. 22

    It's no wonder why Will I Am pounded on you. In fact your pretty lucky that it hasn't happened more to you. Not everybody appreciates the hate and negativity that spews from the hole you call a mouth.

    Sly Stallone is one of the sexiest guys ever. Its a poster!!! It's Hollywood!!!! I have met him in person and he can give the average tall, 25 year old guy a run for his money. His body is smoking and his charisma is larger than life. He is also a genius to boot. Write about something even close to being true. Kat



  24. 24

    Well Sly is in the foreground and Willis is standing a little further back so the height difference between them could be because of that.



  25. 25

    it's called perspective!! t



  26. 26

    your new writer really sucks



  27. 27

    i know for a fact that the "men" in this poster are not that… they are body doubles. my friend is one of them.

    so hollywood is just as fake as we all think and say it is! :)



  28. 28

    Perez, you dare diss Sly? You deserve a Rocky-style beat down, you douchebag!
