Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren Talk The Expendables 3, Their Freedom to Blow Up Anything While Shooting, Deleted Scenes, and More

23 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now playing in theaters is director Patrick Hughes’ The Expendables 3.  Like I said on Twitter, The Expendables 3 is a lot of fun and my favorite of the series due in large part to Mel GibsonWesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas.  All three are awesome and Banderas steals every scene he’s in.  In addition to the new cast, The Expendables 3 has a crazy third act that’s easily the best action scene of the franchise. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Terry Crews  and Dolph Lundgren.  They talked about what they remember most about filming, making the movie in Bulgaria and how they could blow up anything, deleted scenes, Jason Statham's  on-set car accident, and more.  Hit the jump to watch. Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren: Brooklyn Nine-Nine. What do they remember most about making The Expendables 3. »

Since Dolph Lundgren was wasted in Expendables 3, I'm putting him front and center this week. I Come in Peace a.k.a. Dark Angel (1990) Director: Craig R. Baxley Stars: Dolph Lundgren, Brian Benben, Betsy Brantley Rule-breaking cop Jack Caine is already busy taking down a group of yuppie drug dealers when an evil alien heroin enthusiast pays a visit to Earth.

Box Office Democracy: “The Expendables 3″

18 August 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The first two Expendables films worked for me in the same way old-timers days work for me in baseball.  They take a career that scarcely has any use for people over the hill and gave them a place to look relevant in a limited space.  My biggest problem with The Expendables 3 is that it deviates too much from that idea by introducing a crop of young guns that expose the existing cast as being largely too old for this line of work while the presence of the established stars steals all the gravitas from the scenes shared with the newer actors.  There are great individual performances and a couple of surprising ones. Excellent choices, but ultimately the Expendables franchise seems to be on a downward trajectory and I don’t know how it will right itself.

Sylvester Stallone needs to learn that there’s a difference between actors who »

‘Expendables 3’ Illegally Downloaded 5 Million Times, But Still Isn’t Top Hit for Pirates

18 August 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pirates have voted on “The Expendables 3″ with their clicks — and it turns out the Sylvester Stallone-starrer hasn’t been astoundingly popular among digital thieves, relatively speaking.

As of Sunday, 5.12 million people worldwide had pirated “Expendables 3” since a high-quality copy hit torrent-sharing sites July 23, according to piracy-tracking firm Excipio.

That likely contributed to the action movie’s dismal box-office debut this weekend. But over the same July 23-Aug. 18 time period, the movie was No. 4 in downloads, after “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (7.31 million), “Divergent” (6.29 million) and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ (5.88 million). Moreover, that’s despite “Expendables 3″ becoming available more than three weeks prior to the film’s U.S. theatrical debut.

For the week ended Aug. 18, the movie was the fifth most popular title on piracy services, with 1.54 million downloads. That trailed “Captain America” (2.61 million downloads globally), “Spider-Man 2″ (1.70 million), “Noah” (1.62 million) and “Divergent” (1.55 million), per Excipio.

Film Review: As Title Implies, ‘The Expendables 3’ Totally Expendable

16 August 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The old man as macho action hero trend has finally calcified. If you haven’t seen either of the two previous “Expendables” pictures – this is definitely not the place to start. Sylvester Stallone’s creaky franchise hits rock bottom.

with this shoddy looking, poorly paced, indifferently acted and overlong exercise in excess on the cheap. It supposedly cost $90 million dollars to make, but what’s onscreen looks like it should have gone direct to video. Some explosions look like they were created with an iPhone.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

The poster promises a Cannon Films era wish list of stars – including new additions Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, and Harrison Ford – in an old school action picture where the body count goes sky high and the bullets never stop flying. But the finished film bears perhaps too many resemblances to the shoddy looking action pictures of the era – it’s an »

Second Opinion – The Expendables (2014)

16 August 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Expendables 3, 2014.

Directed by Patrick Hughes.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz, Kelsey Grammer, Glen Powell, Ronda Rousey and Victor Ortiz.

Synopsis:

Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.

 

Watching The Expendables 3, one can’t help but see the irony. In 2010, Sylvester Stallone rounded up a group of fellow action stars to give audiences what they always wanted to see, even if it was two decades too late to have any real significance; 1980s action gods Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Stallone himself sharing the same screen (with a few other C-List names added to make up the numbers). The film was fun, »

‘Expendables 3′: Measuring The Sum Of Its Star Parts In Key Overseas Markets

16 August 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Expendables 3 is debuting this weekend in 40 territories including Russia, the UK, Mexico and Australia — and features a powerhouse ensemble that includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Kelsey Grammer and Kellan Lutz.

Together, the cast outweighs the sum of its parts, but the parts are actually quite interesting when looked at in terms of international box-office drawing power, especially in mega markets like China, Korea, Russia, Brazil, and parts of Western Europe. Below, I’ve broken out numbers for some of the individual stars across those markets with a nifty slideshow that covers their last three major titles outside the franchise in these key territories.* The first Expendables film did about $274M worldwide, with $171M from overseas. In an unusual turn of events for a sequel, the franchise’s second film saw its earnings drop in the U. »

Ranking 2014's summer blockbusters from worst to best

16 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The summer blockbuster season isn't what it used to be. We no longer have to wait until July for Hollywood's epic spectacles, with studios now lining up their tentpole releases as early as March - this year we saw the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before the calendar had ticked over to May.

With The Expendables 3 out in cinemas now and pretty much bringing the curtain down on the summer's biggest releases, Digital Spy has flicked back through the calendar to rank this summer's box office big guns from worst to best.

13. The Expendables 3

Despite an ever-expanding cast list that hoovered up Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone's third Expendables outing landed with more of a whimper than a bang. Franchise favourites like Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren were criminally underused, leaving us »

Sylvester Stallone says Rambo V will be his next film

16 August 2014 12:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been on the cards for a good few years now, but it finally looks like John J. Rambo is set for a return to the big screen, with Sylvester Stallone revealing to Vulture that Rambo V is likely to be his next film.

“I’m getting ready for that. I’m starting to work out. I’m going to be appropriately vicious and all that stuff, but intellectual. A killer with a heart. Smart, yet stupid. Tall, yet short. Broad, but thin. You know what I mean. We’re going to try to cover all the boundaries.”

Rambo V has went through a few different scripts over the years (including Rambo V: The Savage Hunt, which would have seen the former green beret tracking a vicious creature that had been genetically engineered), and back in June it was reported that Sly was working on a script that »

Who Would You Cast As the Science Fiction 'Expendables'?

15 August 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Earlier this week, I asked for casting ideas for a comedy equivalent of the Expendables franchise. Now let's try another genre. If there's any kind of movie that exploded in the '80s and '90s as significantly as action flicks, it's science fiction. Sure, there's some overlap with a number of titles, including a few titles each led by Expendables stars Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren and newcomer Harrison Ford.  But not all sci-fi movies have action, and also there are a good amount of subgenres to look at within the sci-fi group. There are outer space movies, alien-visitor movies, alien-invasion movies, time-travel movies and future-set movies to choose from. And there are definitely actors and actresses who are...

Movie Review: The Expendables 3

15 August 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Expendables 3 is the latest installment of the cheese-tastic, 1980s style, throwback action franchise. You may not think of this series of films as anything more than an exercise in geriatric yoga for the addled action stars of yore. But, the fact is The Expendables (2010) made $275M on an $80M budget and The Expendables 2 (2012) made $305M on a $100M budget. And that is serious worldwide box-office business.

The Expendables 3 involves some unfinished business. As it turns out, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), had a partner who co-founded the group with him (a new background detail sheds some light on the team’s bloody history), Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who is out to wipe out the entire team – especially Barney. The film is directed by Patrick Hughes, a young filmmaker with only two prior films to his credit. (No you never heard of either of them.) The writing team is led by Sylvester Stallone, »

Review - 'The Expendables 3'

15 August 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The ostensibly great thing about The Expendables franchise is that it gives itself a free pass to be as outrageous and nonsensical as possible because its intentionally overblown fundamentals are meant to be an homage to the quasi-intentionally overblown action classics of yesteryear. The trouble is that such a thing should be fun to watch, and so far The Expendables movies haven’t lived up to that end of the bargain. Instead of reveling in the outrageousness and nods to the classics, the first two Expendables movies treated them as points to simply check off the list for brief moments of buzz while they moved on to stressing their own leaden plots. Thankfully, The Expendables 3 learns how to properly weave the fun and hopelessly cheesy yet endearing cameos together with all the explosions to make for a pretty good action movie.

New Expendables 3 Movie Received Mostly Negative Reviews From Major Critics

15 August 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Lionsgate released their new, hardcore action flick, "The Expendables 3," into theaters yesterday, August 14th, and the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that it didn't quite sit well with a lot of them, getting only an overall 35 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews over at the metacritic.com site. The film stars: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell and Kelsey Grammer. We've posted blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75 grade, saying: "So let me just say that this latest rah-rah red-meat installment is the biggest and best surprise of the series. It has its flaws, but it's mostly a big, dumb, gruntingly monosyllabic hoot." Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, »

The Expendables 3

15 August 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If you've seen Sylvester Stallone and his over-the-hill gang in 2010's The Expendables, paid up for the 2012 followup, and can't wait to see The Expendables 3, then you're a glutton for movie punishment and I can't help you. Stallone and his Aarp, er CIA, mercenaries, including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, are back for more lame-ass mayhem, this time PG-13 instead of R-rated to bring in younger strays. Their mission? To stage a prison break for one of their founding members, Doctor Death (Wesley Snipes). Say what? »

'The Expendables 3' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Macho Sequel

15 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ah, "The Expendables" franchise. Much like the actors who star in the movie -- it just won't die. Every couple of years we're #blessed with one of these movies, which feature a bunch of past-their-prime action stars, many of whom were vastly more popular 30 years ago, embroiled in some kind of scenario where they have to fire round after round of high powered weapon while cracking wise and acknowledging, at least to a certain degree, that they've all gotten very old.

If the trailers are any indication, "The Expendables 3" is the last film in the franchise (the words "One Last Ride" keep being thrown around). So they've rounded up all the old folks (among them: Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Robert Davi, Wesley Snipes and Kelsey Grammer) and placed all kinds of guns in their hands and sent them about their business.

The Expendables 3 Makes the First 2 Movies Look Like Seven Samurai

15 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

For those of us Demolition Man fans, the best part of The Expendables 3 comes early, as Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes trade brief sneers of recognition when the former, with some help from Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren, breaks the latter from a high-tech prison train in the film's opening scene. The pleasures of this series have always been incidental — occasional in-jokes, random bits of extended banter, a surreally nasty kill or two. But as movies, the first two films barely held together. Just jamming a bunch action clichés together doesn’t really amount to much if you don’t do anything interesting with them. But those first two movies look like Seven Samurai next to The Expendables 3, a sad, bad, parade of uninspired cameos and listless violence.Almost everything in The Expendables 3 seems to revolve around the dispersal of recognizable faces.

‘The Expendables 3′ lands more punches than it misses

15 August 2014 12:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Expendables 3

Directed by Patrick Hughes

Written by Sylvester Stallone, Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt

 

Family themes are getting a good workout in action movies lately.  From the ragtag team of outlaws in Guardians of the Galaxy to the Pizza Hut dream-team in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, filmmakers need us to know that blood is thicker than water when the shit hits the fan.  That trend continues with Stallone’s latest testosterone booster shot, The Expendables 3.  The old dudes deliver the goods, but the new crew of young, demographically-balanced knuckleheads is utterly forgettable.  Luckily, terrific stunt work and a couple of surprising performances make this a worthwhile mission for fans of ‘80s action shtick.

Things open promisingly enough, with two fantastic action set pieces.  The first involves the remaining Expendables (Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture) busting their buddy (Wesley Snipes) out of a maximum-security train.  Fists, »
