Now playing in theaters is director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3. Like I said on Twitter, The Expendables 3 is a lot of fun and my favorite of the series due in large part to Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas. All three are awesome and Banderas steals every scene he’s in. In addition to the new cast, The Expendables 3 has a crazy third act that’s easily the best action scene of the franchise. I think the team kills over a thousand people. It shows once again how the MPAA doesn’t care about violence when giving out ratings. Only in America can a film like this get a PG-13.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Kelsey Grammer and Randy Couture. They talked about what they remember most about filming, making the movie in Bulgaria, deleted scenes, how unrated or director cuts can radically change a movie, future projects, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
