The Expendables 3

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier arriving this week, it feels like the blockbuster summer season is starting early. But May is really when the tentpoles come into full swing. However, one of the big action flicks of the year won't arrive until later in the summer, and that is The Expendables 3. There's some sort of new "Roll Call" video or trailer arriving tomorrow, but in the meantime, we have a huge pile of character posters that have arrived featuring the enormous action ensemble cast. The bad news is they all look like yearbook portraits that their mother made them get while they were shopping at Sears. See posters below!

The character posters for The Expendables 3 from IGN, ComingSoon, JoBlo & Collider (via IMP Awards):

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. The film is released on August 15th.

    I gotta say I disagree, these are great! These movies don't take themselves too seriously, they're having fun. I think these posters reflect that tone perfectly! Can't wait for this one!

    I would have liked the Harrison Ford poster to be a parody/homenage to Han Solo haha, but that's just me

    It's an absolute *travesty* that Kevin Bacon wasn't asked to be in this movie.
    • Brian Sleider
      Can't have him in a movie like this, It would absolutely break 6 degrees of Keven Bacon.

    Looks like they didn't need extrass on the set...

    just fun posters like the movies. And I must say they are doing a fine job with it. I will certainly see part 3 because 2 was very good for an actioner...

    Fraiser?

    I can't wait to see Snipes back in the saddle.

    At first glance I thought Rousey was an amputee, missing most of her arm.
  • JBrotsis
    I couldn't stop laughing at Crews expression and pose!
  • txJM

  • grimjob
    Oh, I can't wait for this!

    Good to see Jet Li's back. He literally disappeared in the second movie, jumps out of a plane and he's never seen/mentioned again. Talk about bad editing.

    Ethan, do you really not get the message / mood / vibe that these posters are trying to create? Or are you feigning ignorance for comedy? Not quite sure, but as someone who I'd assume to be intelligent in these things, it's pretty easy to pick up that these posters were made in jest to poke fun at the lightheartedness of the film, in knowing that it's an action flick and just all around good times with the old gang. I hope your comment of "The bad news is they all look like yearbook portraits that their mother made them get while they were shopping at Sears." is to be reconsidered, because it makes you look a bit presumptuous/douchey for no apparent reason other than possible personal bias.
