Arnold and Sly wear matching prison garb in first image of ‘The Tomb’

Remember when Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger used to be in competing movies and not in the same one? Well those days are long gone. Not only are the two action movie stars teaming up in The Expendables 2, which releases this weekend, but they're also starring together in The Tomb.

In The Tomb, Stallone plays an engineer that designs prisons that are impossible to escape from. Then he gets framed for a crime he didn't commit. Now, he's challenged with breaking out of a prison he designed, with Arnold and 50 Cent as other inmates helping him. My first thought was why would a legal system put an inmate in a prison he designed? But whatever. It's compelling seeing these two actors share the screen together in something that isn't a typical action movie for them.

I'm not sure how I feel about the goatee on Arnold, but I'm not gonna be the one to tell him it doesn't look good. The Tomb is scheduled for a 2013 release, but with no specific date set.
