The Expendables 3 Trailer (skip crop)
While the line between irony and earnest action franchise continues to blur with each successive entry, "The Expendables 3" is doing what all sequels must: getting bigger. The cast is larger, the stakes are probably relatively higher and we're sure the insurance premiums would make an actuary faint. All this to say: the first teaser trailer is here.

Who would've though that one day, the guy who was best known for playing the neurotic Dr. Frasier Crane on not one, but two long-running hit sitcom series would become a franchise regular? Well, it looks like that's the odd career path being taken by one Kelsey Grammer. Already lined up with a bad guy role in "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," now he's gonna be flexing his (newly found?) muscles with Sylvester Stallone and his band of beef jerky enthusiasts.

Probably in an attempt to get everyone to stop talking about his falling out with Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone has spilled the beans on a few more additions to his "Expendables 3." Officially joining Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Milla Jovovich and recent additions Harrison Ford and, uh, Kellan Lutz, are a pair of names who've been rumored for a while, in the shape of Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas. The still-somewhat-disgraced Gibson will play the adversary in the film (as he does in the upcoming "Machete Kills"), while there's no firm word if Banderas will be on the side of the angels or the devils. Shooting is apparently getting underway any day now, so expect to see this in theaters this time next year. [Coming Soon]

What's a million dollars between friends (or colleagues)? Apparently, a lot. As you might remember, the cinematic world did a collective HUH? when it was announced earlier this week that Harrison Ford was stepping into "The Expendables 3," while Bruce Willis was exiting. But the news was made all the more fascinating when in a tweet, Stallone called John McClane "greedy" and "lazy." Now it seems the story behind that animosity has surfaced.

At 71 years old Harrison Ford clearly isn't getting too old for this shit. Hell, we just learned he's game for getting out the whip and hat again to quip his way through "Indiana Jones 5," should it ever happen, and now he's ready to go down Nostalgia Lane some more, along with a host of other aging action icons.

Stallone. Rourke. Snipes. Chan. Jovovich. Gibson. Lutz!?!?! More like, "What the Lutz" amirite? It seems that in putting together the cast for his old-man-does-action franchise, Sylvester Stallone still thinks that "Twilight" beefcakes are going to be a draw. Did he not see "Abduction"?

Sylvester Stallone is rounding up his latest batch of actors for “The Expendables 3,” and that means a return to nostalgic casting, likely performed by spinning a circular rack of '80s VHS titles and headbutting a winner. Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, and Mickey Rourke were the latest names to join up, proving a victory after Chan hesitated before, and now another star discussed early on is getting some screen time as well.

So, you should know the story of Mel Gibson by now, and if not, there's always Wikipedia for all the ins and outs, but basically he went from being one of the biggest actor/writer/director/producer on the planet to a pariah. A nasty divorce fueled by tabloid leaks, and not helped by his own behaviour found him exiled in Hollywood thanks to his sexist remarks and perceived anti-Semitism. He's tried to quietly re-establish his name in the uneven dramedy "The Beaver" and the straight-to-VOD actioner "Get The Gringo," but audiences and critics resisted, and that's not to mention the near full cast revolt that happened when Todd Phillips cast the actor in "The Hangover Part II" (he was replaced by Nick Cassavetes). But could his career be back on track by embracing the fact that people generally aren't in love with him anymore?

It looks like the old dudes of "The Expendables" are going to get an energetic boost of estrogen to add to their ranks when they grease up their joints for yet another bland action outing. And it's someone who has more than her fair share of experience kicking ass.

“The Expendables” franchise seems like both a blessing and a bit of a curse for Sylvester Stallone and his team of aging action stars. While the franchise itself has proven to be a hit, it hasn’t exactly been a career re-launcher for guys like Stallone and Schwarzengger whose films “Bullet to the Head” and “The Last Stand” proved to be unsuccessful in the box office this year. Still, at least they all have a franchise to fall back on and it’s fun to see what kind of a cast Stallone can conjure up for the next “Expendables” film. Speaking of which, Stallone has recently taken to Twitter to tease us all about who might show up for “Expendables 3.”
