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.

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.

Ten new images have been released from Robert Rodriguez’ Machete Kills.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.   Judging by what we’ve seen so far, it looks like more of the same, so if you liked the original Machete, then Machete Kills should be right up your alley of violence and mayhem.  The movie is set to screen this evening as the opener of Fantastic Fest 2013, so expect some reactions to start hitting the Internet later tonight.

Mel Gibson Has an Army of Super Soldiers and a Cape in New MACHETE KILLS Red-Band Trailer

A new red-band trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming sequel Machete Kills has been released online, and it’s just the right amount of silly.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  The trailer shows off plenty of unbridled carnage at the hands of Trejo’s Machete, but we also get to see more of Mel Gibson’s villainous character, who describes himself as a “fucker-people-upper.”  It remains to be seen whether the film will be fun and absurd rather than just absurd, but it looks like we’ll get to see one hell of a Mel Gibson performance regardless.

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

by     Posted 247 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.

The cast for The Expendables 3 continues to take shape.  A few days ago, Sylvester Stallone revealed that Bruce Willis was out of the film, but that Harrison Ford had now joined the cast.  Today, The Wrap reports that Mel Gibson has been confirmed to play the baddie in the pic and Antonio Banderas has signed on to join the action ensemble.  Gibson was previously rumored to play the film’s antagonist after Stallone initially reached out to him about possibly directing, and now it appears that the deal has been closed.  There’s no firm word on who Banderas will be playing, but one assumes it’ll be a middle-aged character proficient in badassery.

Red Hill director Patrick Hughes is taking the helm this time around, and other cast members include Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Kellan Lutz, and Milla JovovoichThe Expendables 3 opens in theaters on August 15, 2014.

A new trailer has been released for Robert Rodriguez’ Machete Kills.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  This new trailer provides more of a “plot” synopsis, but mostly gives us a look at the supporting cast, which includes Lady Gaga, Cuba Gooding Jr., Antonio Banderas, and Mel Gibson as the villain.  Judging by this new trailer, Rodriguez has run out of ways to make Machete fun and interesting, and is now just making a really long Funny or Die video where celebrities briefly take on ridiculous roles.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Alex Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, William Sadler, and Marko ZarorMachete Kills will open Fantastic Fest 2013, and opens in wide release on October 11th.

Sylvester Stallone Hints at Mel Gibson Appearance in THE EXPENDABLES 3

by     Posted 282 days ago

expendables-sylvester-stallone-slice

We heard last month that Mel Gibson was eying the villain role in The Expendables 3.  The intersection between Expendables fans and those who somehow remain in Gibson’s corner will find Sylvester Stallone‘s latest tweet interesting: “Mad Max vs Barney Ross……”  Although the Lethal Weapon series is more in line with the Expendables approach to life, Stallone’s wording is slightly catchier than “Martin Riggs vs Barney Ross……” Notice that Stallone did not tweet “Mel Gibson has officially signed on to play the villain in The Expendables 3……,” so this is far from official.  Stallone knows more than we do, but we will wait for more information on the nature and size of Gibson’s role, if he’s in the sequel at all.

Starring Stallone, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, and Milla JovovichThe Expendables 3 opens August 15, 2014.

Will Mel Gibson Be the Villain in THE EXPENDABLES 3?

by     Posted 320 days ago

mel-gibson-expendables-slice

As The Expendables 3 puts together its requisite cast of 80s and 90s action stars, it was probably only a matter of time before Mel Gibson joined the party.  According to Showbiz411, sources are saying that Mel Gibson might play the villain in the third installment of the action franchise.  Back in April, Sylvester Stallone tweeted/joked that Gibson should direct “EXPENDABLES FIVE”, but it wouldn’t surprise me if there was a place in the franchise for the rage-filled, anti-Semitic former movie star.  He’s already playing his first villain role in Robert RodriguezMachete Kills, and these supporting baddies may be the only parts Gibson can get for the foreseeable future.  Could anyone buy him as a hero again, and would any studio take the risk to find out?  Considering that his last movie, the surprisingly entertaining Get the Gringo, went straight to VOD/DVD, probably not (and even in that movie, he played an anti-hero).

The Expendables 3 will star Stallone, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jackie Chan, Nicolas Cage, Wesley Snipes, and Milla Jovovich.  The movie opens August 15, 2014.

First Trailer for MACHETE KILLS [Updated]

Open Road Films has released the first trailer for director Robert Rodriguez’s sequel Machete Kills.  The film centers on Machete’s (Danny Trejo) quest to stop an eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has plans to spread war and anarchy across the planet.  This trailer was released on Yahoo!’s Spanish-language site, but the dialogue is in English.  It looks like fun, but so did Machete, which made Trejo a supporting character in his own movie.  A large cast is fun, but Rodriguez always seems to have trouble finding the right balance (he had the same problem with Once Upon a Time in Mexico).  Hopefully, Machete Kills will be an improvement on the first film. [Update: We've added the English-language version, which is the same except now English-language speakers can understand the narration]
