The trailer for the new Expendables 3 film is here, and it is packed with action. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, the franchise started with The Expendables in 2010, and came out with the sequel in 2012.
The films feature a cast of action stars that many people would probably argue are way past their prime as they have been in many films leading up the franchise.
As a result, some people have refused to see the films. In any case, the films boast a cast of some of the best actors from action films of all time.
Despite the fact that certain fans have chosen not to see the films, they have been highly successful at the box office, and the first film was able to bring in $270 million worldwide, while the sequel made $300 million.
The Expendables 3 brings in stars such as Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson, joining a cast that is already jam packed with actors such as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jet Li, among others.
Bruce Willis was originally a part of the cast, but has since been cut from the franchise.
Fans are now able to get a look at at what the latest from the franchise will bring with the new trailer, and a host of well-known actors that action fans have come to love over the years. It is hard to find a film with such a large cast, although it is hard to know if the big cast and big names are able to make the next installment in the series a success.
The plot is said to find Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team cominh face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, is making it his mission to end The Expendables, although Barney has other plans. It will be a clash between old school fighting and new high-tech weapons.
The film is directed by Patrick Hughes, and production began earlier this year in August. The Expendables 3 is set to be released on August 15, 2014.
