The Teaser trailer for The Expendables 3 whistles while it works its action magic

Dec. 19, 2013by:

The action gods of the '80's are back at it again and this time they're bringing in some new "old" favorites into the mix. Sylvester Stallone's gaggle of badasses return in THE EXPENDABLES 3 next summer and now we have a teaser to whet our appetite for some more cheesy, over-the-top, asskicking action from the guys who pretty much shaped and molded our cinematic childhood. It's a short, sweet, and catchy teaser, which is nice to see and more than enough to get me jazzed for the sequel.

Check it out:

Here's the synopsis:

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.

I had the pleasure of visiting the set for THE EXPENDABLES 3 earlier this year and look forward to sharing those exploits with you. In the meantime, I can say that I'm very much looking forward to this one, particularly with the inclusion of director Patrick Hughes (RED HILL) at the helm, who I think will breathe some fresh energy into the franchise. Toss in Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and a pumped up Mel Gibson as the villain and you've got a killer line-up of stars kicking ass and blowing shit up. I'm stoked.

THE EXPENDABLES 3, starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Glen Powell, and Victor Ortiz, hits theaters on August 15, 2014.

Epic...

...although I really would have preferred Davi's name up there instead of Grammer. Davi has a handful of action movies under his belt, Grammer sucks.

Yeah, that was fun. Sure.

Question: who are the two guys in the right? And the guy between Ford and Rousey? I'm pretty sure none of 'em is Kelsey Grammer...

Maybe Expendables 4 would need a wider Panorama shot, hehe. Love that teaser though and I can't wait to watch all my favorite actors (except for Lutz) in one movie.

That was a really fun teaser. Here's what Jackie Chan had to say about not being in this movie:

First off, its a big cast. Stallone told me you can do whatever you like but thats not possible because everyone in the cast is a big name and there wont be any room for me to be in it. He recounted a terrible experience he shared with Stallone, appearing in what is regarded as one of the worst films of all time. I shot a cameo for An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn with

I shot a cameo for An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn with Stallone, I shot one scene. The promotional materials declared that it was starring Jackie Chan and Stallone! and that became a lie because I was in it for two minutes. So the same thing would happen when The Expendables 3 gets promoted in Asia, itll be starring Jackie Chan and Stallone! I asked him if I could make a movie just starring the two of us and he agreed with what I said, so thats why Im not a part of The Expendables 3.

funny he says that about the film companies promoting him as being a star in the film, when he's not. I hate it when film companies do that. I have actually started to watch a Jackie Chan movie once because the box cover states that he is the star, but it turned out he was not! He wasn't even in it but for a few minutes! The same thing happened with a Morgan Freeman movie too.

Expendables 3 is my most anticipated movie of 2014. I loved the other two movies a ton, and can't wait to see what Ford, Banderas, and Snipes get to do in this one.

Also, Jet Li better be in this one.

I will not accept his absence again, it wasn't even like he was busy. Also, I thought Jackie Chan was going to be in this one as well? What happened to that?

I heard that his stunt double DIED during the opening shots of Expendables 2, dude.. just lighten up... the crew was all shaken up over the loss of his stunt double... you cannot just replace a stunt man.... it happens but apparently there was no time to re-hire another look-a-like for Jet li

First one was cool, second was utter horse crap.

Second movie was so boring, had the worst special effects (youtube video makers do better CG blood shots)

This is being rated R from the start right? Or is it another shitty PG-13 entry?

Dialog goes a little something like this

Stallone: Here, take my Gun!
Snipes: Nah, I like BLADES

zing!
