If there’s an “Expendables 3”, that is. At this point, I’m not sure if that’s a guaranteed thing anymore. Although it took #1 at the box office over the weekend, “The Expendables 2” failed to reach the mark set by the first movie in 2010, opening lower than industry expectations. And the second one costs more to make, too, which is never a good thing. (Hey, those bullet squibs don’t come cheap, you know.)
But just in case there is a third “Expendables”, can we expect to see Chuck Norris back as Booker? According to the man himself, that’s a negative, with Norris telling Access Hollywood on the Red Carpet of “The Expendables 2” premiere that “this is the last one” for him. It certainly sounds as if Norris just came back to goof around with his buddies Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and not really as a means to a career resurgence as I might have hoped. Which I guess makes sense — the guy is in his ’70s, after all, though you wouldn’t know that by looking at him.
But if you do want the rest of the Expendables back for the third time ’round, go see the movie this weekend. It’s much better than the first film (though honestly, that’s not saying much), and a lot more fun to boot. Norris is also one of the film’s major highlights.
