The new trailer for Lionsgate Films’s The Expendables 3 has just been released. Up until now, we’d only had two teasers that showed off the cast in the film, but now, we have a story trailer, and it’s looking very good. The film follows Barney Ross (Stallone) as he’s faced with his past coming back to haunt him, in the vein of Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), the man who helped form the Expendables team, and is now a maniacal arms dealer. The trailer features a lot of great action, some good humor, and a very impressive cast. Check it out below.
The trailer hits all the right beats, and it sure seems like this could be the strongest film in the series. It seems to have found the balance that the first two films, as fun as they are, couldn’t seem to strike. They just don’t make action movies like this anymore, so I certainly can’t wait to see this one.
The film features an all star cast of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Kellen Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, and Wesley Snipes. Directed by Patrick Hughes, the film will be released August 15, 2014.
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.
