Despite the fact that The Expendables 3 won’t be seeing a release until August 15, 2014, and the film itself just completed shooting this summer, we’ve already got a teaser trailer for a movie that is now still nine months away. While it doesn’t showcase much action, it does show off the fact that the film stars just about every ‘80s action movie star ever (minus Bruce Willis).
The Expendables has always been a fairly ridiculous franchise, but one that is aware of its own ridiculousness. That tone is full-on in the new teaser, which features the cast—Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammar, Wesley Snipers, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Antonio Banderas, and Jason Statham—whistling while they work. Check it out:
Ridiculous, but fun.
The film finds the Expendables confronting Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), the man who co-founded the Expendables but has now become a villainous arms trader. The Expendables then recruit a bunch of new blood to go after Stonebanks, and a lot of punching and jokes about getting old are likely to ensue.
What do you think of the teaser?
