In 2010, a new generation of audiences were introduced to the past stars of the 1980’s and 90’s as Sylvester Stallone wrote, directed, and starred in The Expendables. Two years later, Stallone and his team returned with more stars that have reached cult status in this generation in the action-packed sequel The Expendables 2.
This summer, the boys are back and ready for action in The Expendables 3.
This time, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his Expendables team must face the merciless arms deal Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), the co-founder of the Expendables with Ross. In order to combat this personal threat, Ross must recruit younger pieces to add to his team. From the trailer, this film will go into the history of the Expendables and how they formed. Apparently, Stonebanks and Ross had a falling out that put them on opposite sides. What this falling out is, we’ll find them out among the explosions, gunfire, and fistfights.
Continuing the trend of The Expendables movie trilogy, this film boasts an all-star cast of returning favorites Jason Statham, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. It also introduces new heroes to the fight: Kellan Lutz (The Twilight Saga, I know…), MMA figher Ronda Rousey, Antonio Banderas (The Legend of Zorro), Kelsey Grammar (Frasier), and Harrison Ford (Star Wars, Indiana Jones). Audiences are also re-introduced as Wesley Snipes (Blade) makes his return to Hollywood in his first big film since being released from prison for tax evasion.
Get ready for the ultimate summer action fix on August 15.
