The Expendables - Win tickets to the premiere of the action movie starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Old-school action heroes are back in force on the big screen this summer!

Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the fray in The Expendables – which explodes on cinema screens on 19th August. And it’s as if the testosterone-fuelled heroics of the 1980s/early 90s heyday of the action movie had never gone away.

Sly, Bruce and Arnie join forces in The Expendables with fellow veterans Mickey Rourke, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren, and new recruit Jason Statham – and to celebrate their return we have joined forces with Lionsgate to give away two pairs of tickets to attend the film’s UK premiere on 9th August in London’s Leicester Square.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need do is choose your favourite action hero from the gallery below and send us the name.

Here’s our top 10 of 80s-style action heroes.

Now tell us which one’s your favourite.

We’ll draw the two winning entries at random – and we’ll let you know who is our readers’ favourite action star when we announce the winners.

Send the name of your favourite action hero in an email, clearly marked The Expendables Premiere Competition in the subject line, to movietalk@ipcmedia.com. The closing date for entries is midday on Thursday 5th August 2010.
