If you’re looking forward to The Expendables 3, you’re about to be very happy. Not only did Lionsgate provide us with a new Expendables 3 image featuring Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Sylvester Stallone, director Patrick Hughes, Wesley Snipes, Randy Couture, and Jason Statham, tomorrow morning my set visit embargo lifts so you can expect more photos, my set visit wrote up, and great interviews with the cast. While I can’t say too much until tomorrow, just know that the movie looks like a very fun action flick and the new cast should add a lot to the picture. I also cannot wait to see Mel Gibson fighting Stallone.
Hit the jump to check out the new Expendables 3 image, and make sure to hit Collider tomorrow morning for more on the film.
Here’s the Expendables 3 synopsis followed by the image. If you missed the roll call from last week which showed a bit more footage from the film, click here to watch. You can also check out 16 character posters here.
In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
