There are a lot of muscles being flexed in this teaser trailer for director Patrick Hughes’s “The Expendables 3″, which is essentially a gathering of the film’s stars for a promo shoot. The biggest surprise for me is that Jet Li is back. He barely had anything to do with the last one, I thought he might have jumped ship on the franchise. Considering the movie is just adding more and more muscle, I’m guessing his role won’t get any bigger the third time ’round.
Anyways. Take a gander at the teaser trailer for “The Expendables 3″, killing bad guys led by Mel Gibson next year.
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, 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.
Returning stars include Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They are joined this time ’round by Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammar, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.
Blasting into theaters next year, August 15, 2014.
