Ronda Rousey and Wesley Snipes Talk EXPENDABLES 3, the PG-13 Rating, the Action Scenes and Designing the Fight Sequences, Future Projects, and More

     August 15, 2014


Now playing in theaters is director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3.  Like I said on TwitterThe Expendables 3 is a lot of fun and my favorite of the series due in large part to Mel GibsonWesley 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.

The other day I landed an exclusive video interview with Ronda Rousey and Wesley Snipes.  They talked about the specific challenges of the action scenes, designing the fight sequences with the stunt coordinator, the camaraderie on set among the large cast, being able to get a PG-13 rating, filming in Bulgaria, future projects, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.
