Mel Gibson’s done it now. He’s not only taking on Sylvester Stallone, but apparently he thinks it’s cool to take on Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Harrison Ford, and Arnold Schwarzenegger all at the same time, too. Talk about biting off more than you can chew — or, er, shoot or try to blow up. Take a gander at a brand new trailer for Patrick Hughes’ “The Expendables 3,” along with a bunch of new images from the upcoming blow’em up.
I don’t know if there’ll be a fourth movie. All indications seem to be that this is the final charge for the boys (and girl), but you know Hollywood — nothing’s ever finished if it keeps making money.
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.
Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell, and Kelsey Grammer.
