Exclusive: Check out four new character posters for The Expendables 3!

Apr. 2, 2014by: Paul Shirey

Hell yeah, who's ready for some more Expendables??

Today, we're debuting four new character posters from this summer's THE EXPENDABLES 3, the next entry in the classic action gods revivial franchise that tosses in all your favorite badasses from the last 30 years into one movie. Our poster roster includes Randy Couture as Toll Road, Dolph Lundgren as Gunnar Jensen, Kellan Lutz as Smilee, and Jason Statham as Lee Christmas. Taking a step away from your standard cool guy movie pose stereotypes, these "behind-the-scenes" style posters make for a cool, unconventional look at these old (and new) action stars.

Check 'em out!:

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.

Chock full of the old-school tropes of the genre, from creative kills, cheesy dialogue, awesome weaponry, and brutal fights, the franchise has been a lot of fun thus far and this new entry is bringing a whole lot more to the table. This time out they're bringing in action legends Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, and Wesley Snipes (as well as Kelsey Grammer and Robert Davi) who will join returning castmates Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture. In addition, there will be a new set of "young" Expendables in the mix, including Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, Victor Ortiz, and MMA fighter Ronda Rousey. This house is packed!

Tune in on Thursday for a special THE EXPENDABLES 3 roll call spot and come back in two weeks, on April 16th, for our set visit report from Bulgaria, where we'll discuss the footage we saw, the guns we played with, and what it's like to sit face-to-face with the majority of The Expendables (not nerve-wracking at all...) and director Patrick Hughes (RED HILL).

To see the rest of THE EXPENDABLES 3 posters that are dropping today, head to Collider for Harrison Ford/Terry Crews/Glen Powell/Jet Li, IGN for Sylvester Stallone/Mel Gibson/Victor Ortiz/Antonio Banderas, and ComingSoon for Arnold Schwarzenegger/Wesley Snipes/Ronda Rousey/Kelsey Grammer

THE EXPENDABLES 3 blasts into theaters on August 15, 2014.

I like how Ford seems to be dressed as a pilot, and Snipes has a lot of blades. Seems like a clever wink to the fans.

I don't know why, but Harrison Ford seems out of place. Looks like he's not having fun with this role. Maybe it's just my impression.

Gibson looks like he could take someone's head off with his gun.

Oh I know, I'm a huge Gibson fan and have been following Ex3 news since the beginning. I'm not surprised by his dedication.

I thought both films were terrible. I like action, but I want a good script to go with it. Here is hoping this one will be better.

Dun watch it then. IT'll waste your precious time, while it entertain us so much. You're a drunk to complain so much. Go home, have a sleep & whine to your mama.

'Dun watch it then' Errr yeh I won't be taking advise from you and if I was drunk I probably would have liked the two movies where the script had been written for a four year old. Oh sorry is that why you liked it.

I heard that it's going to be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in May. I'm not positive, but that's the rumor I keep hearing.

A bunch of handsome tough guys to be sure, but they're all smiling and vogueing as though this were a fashion magazine shoot. But Dolph, I swear that man doesn't age.

Or maybe we can give the guy a chance. He's built for action and attempting to break into the genre, let's see how he does before writing him off.

I met the guy on set and although I don't know him personally or in-depth enough to make a final call, he was the nicest of all the guys on set. Take that for what it's worth.

Paul Shirley - on the manlymovie.com website someone who met Statham on set of Ex 3 said he was kinda of an ass and a prima donna. What were your impressions, that is if you were able to meet him and care to share.

Interesting. I didn't get that impression of Statham, but I only met him briefly. He was friendly, cool, and answered all of our questions, so I couldn't have asked for much more. Sometimes it's just all about context and catching someone at a bad time, though. I've heard from multiple people who have met Statham that he was a good dude. Again, for what it's worth.

Agreed, it may have just been an exaggeration or maybe he was having a bad day. Any behind-the-scenes set pics I see with Statham he seems to be having a good time and happy so I never believed the story 100%.

Second one was shit

The first one was fun for a summer blockbuster. The second one though was just horrible and boring. What was with the awful CGI blood and the horribly boring plot? It took like 3 tries for me to finish the second movie, I kept falling asleep.

So Kellan Lutz is the new Liam Hemsworth in this flick?

I like the informal nature of these shots. These guys are so badass they don't need to glower at you. I liked EXPENDABLES 2 a lot more than 1, and it's good to see they're bringing in at least one ass-kicking female (I don't know: I just want to see a female kick Stallone's tail between his ears, I don't know why). Hopefully this is better than 2: it would be nice to have this series have an upwards trajectory.

Rousey is on the Expendables side so don't expect a fight with her and Stallone.
