The Expendables 3 Featurette: A Pile of Icons


Check out this featurette for The Expendables 3, the upcoming threequel starring the who’s who of the action film genre, including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford. This piece sees the cast talking about the new additions to The Expendables team, introducing us to Wesley Snipes, who isn’t shy about why he got locked away, and MMA fighter Ronda Rousey. We’re looking forward to some fun here, and are hoping that the decision to deliver a PG-13 (U.S.) rating doesn’t affect the overall tone. The first film was somewhat fun, but the second felt both forced and lazy, so fingers crossed third time’s a charm.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, and Glen Powell.

Official synopsis for The Expendables 3:

In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come 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.
