Despite the recent news that The Expendables 3 will have a PG-13 rating, this latest trailer still makes the movie look like it's going to be a ton of fun. Of course, I'm one of those people that enjoys over-the-top ridiculous action movies like this. Sometimes you just have to turn your brain off and enjoy the ride.
I still can't believe the actors they've been able to pull into this franchise over the years. This final film includes 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. The fact that they got Ford and Gibson involved is pretty damn awesome. Here's the synopsis:
"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."
The movie hits theaters on August 15th.
