The Expendables 3 leaked online three weeks before theatrical premiere

07.25.2014

With just under a month to go before it hits theaters, the cast and crew of THE EXPENDABLES 3 are having a great time at San Diego Comic Con, plugging their film and telling fans how much fun it is going to be. What isn't fun is the full length film has been leaked online which could damage the box office potential for the mega-cast action flick.

Variety is reporting that the film has already been downloaded over 189,000 times since it came online just over a day ago. If you do the math, that would be the equivalent of just under $2 million in box office. When an unfinished cut of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE leaked online, 20th Century Fox claimed massive damages. But, what it did more was show fans how bad the movie was which could have damaged box office even further.

We here at JoBlo.com do not condone movie piracy in any fashion and will not share any information on where and how you can download THE EXPENDABLES 3. Realize if you partake in viewing the apparant rip from a DVD screener of the film, you are likely contributing to the end of the franchise and could face legal action should the producers pursue that path. You could face hefty fines or incarceration, so just wait and see the movie in theaters.

It remains to be seen what impact the leak will have or where it originated, but I am sure we will hear some choice words from Sylvester Stallone in the near future. Until then we can all expect to see an authorized theatrical release of THE EXPENDABLES 3 on August 15th.

Had a buddy of mine come into work a week ago with a burnt DVD copy of this. Said he bought it out of the back of a guys car at Target for $10. Slapped it in the DVD player at work and scrolled through the whole movie. Did not watch it mostly because it is loud as hell in there and you can't hear anything. I really was not planning to watch this after the lackluster 2nd one, but it is sad that it happened.
Too bad this did not happen to Ironman 3, I could have just turned off the TV

queen bee, or moron as I see prefer to be called by your comment. I did not watch it at home because It was not mine, I did not buy it, my coworker did. And, yes I work at a job where we do have times of the day that we are not busy, it's called down time, you may have heard the term sometime when you not being a pretentious prick.

You don't have to respond, I will not check this thread thread again. I now know to not read your comments, I can take only so much stupid at a time.

Find the idiot who uploaded it and slam them in prison

I'm so sick of the attitude towards piracy these days. I used to sell TV's for a living and got so sick of people asking if a TV would play their downloaded movies. Even got a couple from time to time demanding a refund if the TV didn't play one of the files! I've downloaded stuff before but certainly don't act like it's my God given right to do it and I'm not one of these junkies who download every file they can friggin' find. The attitude needs to stop and people need to pay to see a movie. I

you do realize that you can pay for a downloaded movie right? I for one have stopped buying hard copies all together and go the pay for download route. Get with the times dummy

Getting with the times isn't illegally downloading movies from torrent sites. You can pay for a downloaded movie, I get that, but the people who were coming into my store were pretty blatant that they download theirs for free. Also I have no idea why you wouldn't want to own a hard copy of something. People will have massive "libraries" of movies, music and books that they don't own because it's linked to an account that could easily be closed and that's it, poof, no more. Look at an itunes

Not even worth downloading

Watched it last night(out of curiousity) and hated it. This isnt even a hard PG-13(a handful of "shit" and two F bombs). This franchise is dead.

Sounds like adolescent, angsty sentiments, expressed no doubt by an adult. God, I just don't know if I can go see it now. The only drop 2 F-bombs. Boo-hoo.

That's karma for you.

That's what the powers to be get for going the PG-13 route. Saying "We owe it to the next generation". Karma is a wonderful thing.

Actually this is WHY we are getting a PG-13 rated film. Look at the recent R-rated action movies. They bombed. Not because they were good but because of pirating mostly. People aren't going out and supporting these movies anymore. I guarantee if the second Expendables had made more money this wouldn't have happened.

But truely...neither film has been good. It's never been any better than the trailer for this one where you see these great old guys together and it makes you smile. It's almost like an SNL sketch. I'm surprised they haven't been able to come up with something more, all these guys, all their collective creative/management teams. I know there's got to be good quality directors and writers out there who grew up loving these guys stuff - I wonder why they haven't tried to help, or haven't

I thought the recent Arnie/Sly prison movie was more engaging than either of these. Make a call out to James Cameron or someone for a few ideas. Everybody who knows these actors wants these to be incredible.

I actually agree with you. That was biggest line of bullshit I heard in a long time. He owed it to the previous generations that lined his pocket with money

I love this site. Lets not bring anymore attention to something we don't agree with by doing a whole article on it. That way our thousands of readers will know where we stand, and totally not go searching on the internet for it.

Funny really. Even with all this online leaking and down loading record box office numbers continue to pour in. If a movies is good then all is good, it wil bring box office. Origins had a huge opening even though it leaked. so go figure.... When I lived in savannah every corner had bootleg dvd sellers and all the cops shopped them and bought dvds from them, in jail the inmates were shown bootleg dvds nightly. Bitch, moan... be a holy crusader if you like but this won't go away, this has

Yup. I lived in China for ab 6 months. This was ab ten years ago so maybe it's increased, but only like 10% of the population went to the movies. Why pay $10+ a person when you can pay sometimes less than a dollar and keep it?

Why state the obvious after already advertising that it has leaked out and is available for download?

Good point, telling us that it leaked online is pretty much the same thing as condoning it.

A study last year showed that those who download movies on the internet actually spend more money at the theater than those who don't. I expect a drop off over the previous film, but that will not have anything to do with this.

So why report a out it now? It's close to telling kids not to read this certain book or whatever. If you all really believed that, why would you draw attention to the fact it's available? Honestly?

While I agree to piracy being a big issue in certain instances, let's not act like The Expendables 2 shouldn't have been the main contributor to the end of the franchise in the first place.
