After the resounding success of "The Expendables" and "The Expendables 2" which brought back a great collection of the legendary action stars including Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jet Li and Jean-Claude Van Damme along side the likes of Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Mickey Rourke, Liam Hemsworth, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eric Roberts and Scott Adkins which have brought about an explosive franchise that is very enjoyable and one of Lionsgate's most bankable star vehicles they've ever produced.
"The Expendables 3" the third film in the franchise features Stallone's Barney Ross character and his motley crue of fun loving mercinaries battle a familiar face from his past in Mel Gibson's villainous Conrad Fairbanks, who himself was a former expendable turned major arms dealer who Ross thought was killed. After an explosive reaquintance, Ross reloads his band of mercinaries with some much needed help from his contact Bonaparte (Kelsey Grammer, "Fraser") with the return of Doc (Wesley Snipes, "Demolition Man"), one of the original expendables along with Galgo (Antonio Banderas, "Assassins") and a younger, tougher group of skilled of future expendables including Luna (Ronda Rousey), Smiliee (Kellan Lutz, "The Legend of Hercules 3D"), Wifi (Glen Powell) and Mars (Victor Ortiz) and two old friends of Barney's in Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Commando") and Drummer (Harrison Ford, "Air Force One") all happy to join Barney to take out the ultimate bad guy. The film was directed by Patrick Hughes, following in the footsteps of Simon West ("The Mechanic", "Con Air") and Stallone himself who co-wrote and directed the original film.
The kick ass action trailer has debuted today and it a full adrenaline rush that features what we got a very brief glimpse of in the teaser trailer. Plenty of action, excitement and great intros to these characters which they all look they had a great time working on the film and hopefully, we'll also have a great time with this most promising, ultimate chapter in the "Expendables" saga.
