Today we have the trailer for the upcoming "The Expendables 3," starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Jet Li, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kellan Lutz, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Kelsey Grammer. Check it out below and check out the film in theaters on August 15th.
Plot: 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.
FYI Capt. America 2 is pretty good. Not perfect but it excels where a lot of Superhero movies fail. It's heavy on hand to hand combat and gunfights and doesn't soften the action for a younger audience. It's actually more of an adult subject matter, Big Brother politics with a little Bond villain world domination at its heart. More of a SHIELD movie than a superhero flick. Capt. America is a human wrecking ball which is showcased more in this film than ever before, but so is his moral code which is actually rare in they post Dark Knight era. He's not dark or driven by revenge, he's just a good soldier who always tries to do the right thing. It's definitely worth a look. 7/10
@canon: i'm a big believer in supporting a movie I deem progressive (meaning an advancement over the status quo) in the theaters. This is one of them. It's the type of movement in the genre I want to see, less comic relief/more maturity and story. You should drop a few bucks and see it in the theater if you like the same. Only way Hwood will listen.
Btw if you haven't seen The Wolf of Wall Street yet do so immediately. I've completely changed my initial opinion of it after watching it a few more time. Might be movie of the year (after several more viewings of Gravity it's a toss up). Haven't laughed so much in a movie in a long time.
