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.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 Gets a Combustible Motion Poster and a New TV Spot

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.

Hit the jump to check out the new The Expendables 3 trailer.  The film opens August 15th, and also stars Harrison Ford Arnold SchwarzeneggerJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenRandy CoutureTerry CrewsKellan LutzRonda RouseyVictor Ortiz, and Glen Powell.

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.

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

the-expendables-3-set-visit-Sylvester Stallone

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.

Watch a Roll Call for THE EXPENDABLES 3 Starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a Bunch of Other Tough Guys

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.

Last year, when director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other online reporters.  While I’ve been able to visit a number of movie sets while running Collider, I’ve never been to a set with so many physically intimidating stars.  As most of you know, the next installment has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford joining the cast along with Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz.

With the film getting released on August 15th, Lionsgate is about to start ramping up the promotion by releasing a new roll call in the coming days and in two weeks they’re going to lift my set visit embargo, so you can expect some great interviews with the cast.  But until then, I’m really happy to be able to offer up four exclusive character posters featuring Harrison Ford, Terry Crews, Jet Li, and Glen Powell.  Hit the jump to check them out.

First Teaser Trailer for THE EXPENDABLES 3

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.

Hit the jump to watch the teaser trailer.  The film also stars 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 on August 15, 2014.

With director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3 due August 15, 2014, I’d imagine we’re getting close to seeing the first trailer/footage from the film.  As most of you know, the next installment has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford joining the all-star cast along with Kellan Lutz, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Glen Powell.  No matter what you think of The Expendables franchise, you have to admit it’s a hell of a cast, and one I can’t wait to see kicking ass next summer.

So while we wait for the first footage to hit, we were sent a promo poster which you can check out after the jump.  It’s got the tag line, “Never send a boy to do a man’s job.”

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

by     Posted 1 year, 97 days ago

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.

If action movies of the 80s and 90s are my religion, then The Expendables 2 just gave me my last rites.  Lionsgate is letting us premiere a new poster that features the entire kick-ass cast assembled along one of the most famous tables in artistic history.  While scholars have deciphered Da Vinci’s painting “The Last Supper” for centuries, the companion image from The Expendables 2 is more my style, complete with guns, skulls and plenty of booze.

Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Scott Adkins and Yu Nan star in the sequel to Stallone’s bone-breaking 2010 original film.  Directed by Simon West, The Expendables 2 opens August 17th.  Hit the jump to see the exclusive poster.

New Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for THE EXPENDABLES 2

by     Posted 2 years, 119 days ago

the-expendables-2-poster-banner-slice

Lionsgate has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for The Expendables 2.  The new film has Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and his gang of mercenaries out for revenge, and also having to deal with a baddie (Jean-Claude Van Damme) who wants some weapons-grade plutonium.  This featurette isn’t going to change anyone’s anticipation for the flick one way or the other, but I do like the emphasis on practical effects and trying to offer a break from CGI-heavy action (although you will also notice green screens in this featurette).

Hit the jump to check out the featurette.  The film also stars Jason Statham, Yu Nan, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold SchwarzeneggerThe Expendables 2 opens on August 17th.

We previously showed you Comic-Con exclusive posters for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Pacific Rim, and now The Expendables 2 is getting in on the action.  More precisely, they’re getting in on the 1980s action.  Since the film’s cast is populated mostly with 80s action stars, it only makes sense that there should a poster that carries an 80s vibe.  If you’re looking forward to the upcoming sequel and are going to be at Comic-Con, you’ll probably want to try and track this down (assuming they’ll be giving out copies).  My advice is to head to the Lionsgate booth (#4035) on the show floor.

Hit the jump to check out the poster.  The film stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, and Arnold SchwarzeneggerThe Expendables 2 opens August 17th.  The film’s Comic-Con panel will be this Thursday at 4:45pm in Hall H.

the-expendables-2-poster-banner-slice

A new poster banner for director Simon West’s actioner The Expendables 2 has arrived.  The photoshop-enhanced poster features the all-star cast of aging action heroes all lined up side-by-side, weapons in hand.  Jean-Claude Van Damme is clearly the villain because he’s the only one in the group wearing sunglasses, like an asshole.  The story finds Sylvester Stallone and his crew hell-bent on revenge following the death of one of their own, as they set out to stop Van Damme’s evil plot to blow lots of things up.

Hit the jump to take a gander at the poster, and check back on the site next week for our full recap of the film’s Comic-Con panel.  The film also stars Jason Statham, Yu Nan, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.  The Expendables 2 opens on August 17th.
