Get ready Expendable fans because Sly and company are coming back with more guns a blazing action, only this time they're bring in even more vintage actions stars back into the star studded fold.
Lionsgate just released a new teaser trailer for The Expendables 3 and the only thing bigger than the explosions are the new stars coming along for the ride. The trailer doesn’t offer any action but does show the all new cast line up with additions Harrison Ford, Kellsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes all looking ready for action in their military gear. Much of the original cast, including Stallone, Lundgren, Couture, Crews, Li, and Statham are back as well. Throw in Mel Gibson as the movie’s villain and I’d say you have a movie few action junkie will miss.
The plot revolves around a ruthless arms dealer Stallone’s character thought he had killed years ago who has returned with one goal: destroy the Expendables. Of course the old crew have some other ideas about being murdered and start recruiting the next generation of mercenaries to wage a high tech battle against their old nemesis.
Stallone, who wrote and directed the first film of the franchise seems to have proven not only can he put together an top shelf action movie, but also attract the type of cast that most filmmakers would drool over. Certainly this film represent a passing of the torch if you will from the old guard of the ’80s to the new jack soldiers of the now.
With the first two Expendables movies grossing over $600 million world wide its clear that appetite for these kind of action films and their aging stars has not abated one bit. The new movie is set to be released summer of 2014.
