Expendables 3 Teaser Trailer Arrives
They're back. And here are their backs...

What do you want when you settle down to watch an Expendables film? Is it lots of Sly and his aging action pack (plus one or two youngsters) blasting bad guys, cracking sort-of wise and bonding over difficult missions? If the answer is yes, you might be excited to watch the teaser trailer for the latest outing, Expendables 3

You will likely be disappointed, however, since the teaser is simply a shot of Sly and co walking away from the camera in a hanger, before turning, catwalk model-style to face us as their names appear. It’s not exactly the most exciting first look at the gang, but compared to yesterday’s fake trailer, at least this one represents the film.

Stallone this time is joined by veterans Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger plus new (well, to the franchise) faces Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammar, Mel Gibson, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey and Harrison Ford. The Expendables 3 is set to explode on to screens on August 15. Take cover…

RE: Trilogy
I honestly love the Expendables. The movies are not the greatest, but they are some of the most amusing pictures in their genre. The overkill of actors/characters is what makes it awesome, to me. More

Trilogy

Okay, I'll give it a chance
If that cast had been in a movie 25 years ago, it would've been the highest-grossing movie of all time. Big names but far too many characters, nobody will get enough screen time to make you care. It'll be just forgettable, throwaway dialogue like the first two. These films were okay when they should have been great. More

Expectations
I understand that everyone has there own view of the "expendables" but i have to say...this is no surprise. I thought "expendables 2" was the end of this film series but i was proven wrong. I see that these actors like to be in a film together and good friends but for this to continue im not sure if its going to make its cut. Most fans will see there favourite actor or character and that would be honestly it, if we are lucky will get a good story out of it. This time someone More
