We finally get a teaser trailer, a confirmed cast list & a synopsis.
The cast is huge! As we expect from an Expendables film now. The cast includes:
Sylvester Stallone, with Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Ronda Rousey, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, and Kellan Lutz
Lionsgate also gave a short synopsis:
Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes 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.
The Expendables is like cotton candy movie watching. You enjoy the experience but after it is done, it is just a mess, and you feel a little sick from all the sugar. Mostly this film will make your inner action geek freak out. It is interesting that Mel Gibson will be playing the villain in this, so we will get to see full on crazy Gibson. Which is always exciting. Also excited to see how they work Kelsey Grammer & Wesley Snipes into the plot. My only problem with the teaser, does Harrison Ford look wicked out of place to anyone else? Everyone is decked out in guns & gear, He is just standing there with a pilot’s jumpsuit on.
