I’ve been waiting to see something from The Expendables 3 that was going to get me excited. The first two trailers were good, but offered nothing of the plot other then the movie will be filled with a lot of actors who had heydays in the 80s. This newest spot doesn’t help matters, as it’s more of the same, except there’s a building that also crumbles. This is really for you people who like these sorta things. Bring me The Escape Plan 2. THAT movie deserves a franchise.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Expendables 3:
[box_light]In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come 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.[/box_light]
