The all-star cast ensemble movie is alive and well (well maybe not “well”) thanks to The Expendables franchise. It’s a forum for action film stars of the past to tell everyone they think they still have what it takes, whether they really do or not. You can whistle along to the Colonel Bogey March as you check out the teaser for the third installment due out this summer, The Expendables 3. We included it as one of our entries on our 2014 “movies to watch” list, with Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Dolph Lundgren back, along with Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, and Kelsey Grammer–and Mel Gibson as the show’s villain. Wait a second… once of these guys doesn’t fit the action hero mold so much. Then there is The Expendables newbie Harrison Ford. What? Is Ford taking every gig that comes along these days?
Along with plenty of extra-long action sequences you can usually find a few fun scenes between these personalities in these films.
With Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude van Damme, Mickey Rourke, and Chuck Norris in the prior outings, we’re still left wondering one question: Where the heck is Steven Seagal?
Here’s the short teaser for The Expendables 3:
At a minimum, it should help you plenty when playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The Expendables 3 has a release date of August 15, 2014.
