There was a lot of griping from the fan base when it was revealed that The Expendables 3 would be rated PG-13, so you guys should take heart in the fact that the upcoming Blu-ray release of the film will indeed include an Unrated Cut that is five minutes longer than the theatrical version. Will the new cut contain all of the action and intensity you’d expect from a more mature rating? It’s too early to tell, but there’s at least a sliver of hope for the fans.
Hit the jump for more on The Expendables 3 Blu-ray. The film (along with the unrated cut) arrives in a Blu-ray combo pack (with Digital HD) on November 25th. 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 Powell all star.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
In the latest edition of the popular franchise, Barney (Stallone) faces off with an old enemy and must fight old blood with new blood, bringing in a new era of Expendables who are younger and faster. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise when The Expendables find themselves in their most personal battle yet.
The Expendables return tougher and faster than ever as old friends face off in the exclusive unrated edition of The Expendables 3, arriving on Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus Digital HD) and On Demand November 25 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The Blu-ray Combo Pack will include the never-before-seen unrated edition of the film – featuring more action, more explosions, more fights – and a higher body count – everything fans have come to love in the franchise! And now, with the immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack experience, audiences will feel like they’re at the center of the action. The Blu-ray Combo Pack will also feature the original theatrical movie. Full of “testosterone-fueled fun” (IGN), both versions of the film will be available two weeks earlier on Digital HD November 11. Also available November 25, The Expendables 3 DVD (plus Digital) will include only the original theatrical version of the film.
