Lionsgate is preparing for the August 15th release of the action packed action-hero blockbuster movie ‘The Expandables 3’. We have a teaser trailer titled ‘Roll Calll’, and 16 fun character posters.
Expendables 3 will host more of our classic action heroes with new additions in Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes ,Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell and Kelsey Grammer. The rest of the insane cast includes the usual guys: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger. No Chuck Norris guys… sorry.
Here’s a brief plot summary:
Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
I can’t say whether this third installment will end up in regards to the first two. The first entry made $103 million domestic and $274m worldwide, while Expendables 2 made $88m domestic but $305m worldwide. The film has its usual mid-August release date, but has to deal with Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1st. But if Expendables 3 does end up being another solid hit, it will be for little reason other than the allure of who decided to play this time around.
