Following last week's extended TV spot for The Expendables 3, two more have popped up showing off some of the new team members, and the new mission that Sylvester Stallone has to embark on to save them with even more geriatric action heroes. Basically, some of the new young bucks like Ronda Rousey and Kellan Lutz get captured by a former ally and co-founder of The Expendables (Mel Gibson), and it's up to the old crew, with some new faces like Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford, to get them back. It's been teased as one final ride for this team, so let's hope this one goes out with a big bang, even if it's PG-13.
The Expendables 3 is directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) and written by Sylvester Stallone and Olympus Has Fallen scribes Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel 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 with a new era of Expendables team members, younger, faster and more tech-savvy. Expendables 3 arrives on August 15th.
