Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of The Expendables 3 characters posters, and they’re a bit, um, different.  Instead of the grit and grime of all the other marketing for the action franchise, these new posters go the opposite route and paint Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Co. in some bright primary colors.  I’m not sure these posters are “good” necessarily, but it’s certainly a welcome change from the bland marketing thus far.  If only the actual films were this lively.

Confession time.  I’ve never seen an Expendables movie.  But since I’m fairly certain I’ll be covering director Patrick Hughes‘ The Expendables 3 in some capacity this summer, maybe I’ll grab a few beers and make time for the first two installments sometime soon.  How can I not prepare myself fully for a film where Mel Gibson plays a character named Conrad Stonebanks?  To that effect, we’ve got a new motion poster for the film that features some fancy cigar action and a hell of a billing block.

Opening August 15th, the film stars Sylvester StalloneHarrison FordWesley SnipesArnold SchwarzeneggerKelsey Grammer, Antonio BanderasJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenRandy CoutureTerry CrewsKellan LutzRonda RouseyVictor Ortiz, and Glen Powell. Hit the jump for the new Expendables 3 motion poster along with a new TV spot. [Warning: Motion poster autoplays with sound, so adjust your speakers accordingly.]

New THE EXPENDABLES 3 Trailer and Banner Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, and Many More

Lionsgate has released a new The Expendables 3 trailer and banner.  The follow-up finds Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  This trailer is exactly what we’ve come to expect from an Expendables movie at this point.  You’re either in or you’re out, and there’s no changing the formula, only the cast members.  This new trailer gives more attention to new additions such as Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer, and Gibson, but not too much since we also have to see lots of explosions and shooting lest we fear those elements may not be part of the film.  At this point, “Explosions” and “Shooting” should get their own character posters, top billing, and a chance to walk the red carpet.

Last year, when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters.  Usually during a break in filming I’ll do interviews with the cast.  But due to how much was going on that day, interviews were tough to come by.  Thankfully, Lionsgate recently got me on the phone with Antonio Banderas for an exclusive interview.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, not wanting to play a villain, his character’s backstory, the weapons, if it was a competitive set, director Patrick Hughes, and more.  He also talked about working with Terrence Malick and the director’s unique way of working, Puss in Boots 2, and if he’ll be directing again.  Hit the jump for what he had to say.

New images have been released from The Expendables 3.  The follow-up finds Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  One of these images is presumably a promo photo with most of the cast members looking directly into the camera.  And yet, if this were an actual shot from the movie, I wouldn’t be totally surprised.

Antonio Banderas Talks Terrence Malick’s Process; Says He Thinks He Made the Cut and Reveals All the Footage Edited Together Could Be a Week Long

Terrence Malick might just be the most elusive filmmaker working today.  He hasn’t given a proper interview in years, and hasn’t been officially photographed in even longer.  Despite all of this, though, he’s become impossibly prolific.  There was a 20-year gap between Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, but in the past decade he has shot five full features.  After completing production on 2012’s To the Wonder, Malick began back-to-back shoots on two upcoming films—one untitled, and one called Knight of Cups.  A massive amount of actors shot scenes for both movies, but since Malick’s process involves filming days of footage and then shaping the film in the editing room, there’s no telling which actors will make the final cut.

One such actor who worked on Malick’s Knight of Cups is Antonio Banderas, and when we recently spoke with Banderas in anticipation of the action sequel The Expendables 3, he provided some fascinating insight into Malick’s filming process, going on to reveal that he thinks he’s made the final cut of Knight of Cups.  Hit the jump to read on.

Antonio Banderas Says He Just Started Work on PUSS IN BOOTS 2

While some animation studios take a very calculated, conservative approach to its films, DreamWorks Animation is known for churning out as many as three feature films in the span of a year; the studio has become a well-oiled animation machine.  Though the Shrek franchise came to a close (maybe) with 2010’s Shrek Forever After, DreamWorks Animation kept the spirit of the series alive with the 2011 spinoff feature Puss in Boots.  The pic focused on the adorably feisty titular kitty, voiced by Antonio Banderas, and grossed $554.9 million worldwide.  We’ve known that the studio was developing a sequel to the fairy tale film, but extensive information on the follow-up has thus far failed to materialize.

However, when we recently spoke with Banderas in anticipation of the action sequel The Expendables 3, the actor revealed that he actually started work on Puss in Boots 2 a few days ago.  Hit the jump to read on.

35 Things to Know about THE EXPENDABLES 3 from Our Set Visit

Sylvester Stallone, Randy Couture, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham are walking through an abandoned building.  The hallways are torn apart.  Debris is everywhere.  The building looks like it’s in the middle of a war zone.  As the Expendables, clad in black clothing and carrying massive automatic weapons, take in their surroundings, they slowly make their way down a long hallway and carefully try to see what’s ahead.  As they reach a closed door they stop.  Stallone motions with his head to open the door and in an instant Couture kicks it open and they all rush in.

Last September, when director Patrick Hughes was filming The Expendables 3 in Sofia, Bulgaria, I was invited to visit the set with a few other reporters.  As a fan of The Expendables movies and especially the cast, I was excited to see them in action, and what I saw and learned on set made me think the third installment is going to be the best of the bunch.  Hit the jump for more.

Lionsgate has released a roll call/teaser trailer for The Expendables 3.  While this footage bills this outing as the “last” time, I have trouble believing that.  But that’s a concern for the future.  Right now, this teaser provides the first footage from the movie (explosions!), and mostly provides a roll call of the many, many tough guys (and gal) populating the movie.  But that’s fine since The Expendables movies are more about a stacked cast than anything else.

Hit the jump to check out the The Expendables 3 teaser trailer, and click here to see some of the character posters/glamour shots.  The film stars (deep breath) 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 PowellThe Expendables 3 opens August 15th.

Lionsgate has released a teaser trailer for director Patrick Hughes’ action sequel The Expendables 3.  The follow-up finds Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  There’s no hint of that story in this first teaser trailer as the cast is simply too large to give everyone screentime in the time allotted.  Taking that into account, everyone and their mother is wheeled out to strike an action pose in what’s essentially a cast introduction.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 Begins Filming; Synopsis Released; Cage, Chan, Rourke, and Jovovich Absent from Cast List

by     Posted 338 days ago

expendables-sylvester-stallone-slice

Lionsgate and Millennium Films have announced that principal photography on The Expendables 3 has begun in Bulgaria and at Nu Boyana Studios in Sofia.  The upcoming film pits Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his team against his old partner Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson).  Stonebanks is out for revenge, and so Barney must round-up a gang of younger team members to join the Expendables.  This is an odd synopsis considering that the high-profile new names are veterans Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford.  The younger additions consist of Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, MMA fighter Ronda Rousey, and boxing champion Victor Ortiz.  The most notable aspect of the press release is the omissions.  Deadline had previously reported that Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, and Milla Jovovich were on board, but they’re not mentioned in this press release.  Additionally, Stallone had said that Mickey Rourke would return, but he’s also absent.  Perhaps their roles were…dispensable.

Hit the jump for the press release.  The Expendables 3 is due out August 15, 2014.
