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 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.
