The Expendables 3 leaks online just weeks before release

22 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This morning, the internet is a-buzz with word that a high-quality blockbuster action sequel, The Expendables 3, has somehow been leaked online. While we here at Flickering Myth condone piracy or illegal downloading, it is still something that is very much in the public domain, and this is perhaps the most high profile leak to happen over recent years.

With Comic-Con in full swing in the Us, the news that a major film, which is being represented at the festival, has leaked online before its world bow will be a massive blow to distributors Lionsgate, who were hoping this would be a decent moneymaker for them. Whether it affects the film’s cinema release and its box office taking remains to be seen.

There hasn’t been this high-profile a film leak since X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, when a work-print of the film, which was finished bar some missing CGI, »

Luc Besson Puts His EuropaCorp to the Test With ‘Lucy’

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The son of scuba-diving instructors, Luc Besson came of age exploring the depths of the ocean floor and inventing stories out of the debris he would find along the shore. Some 50 years later, he is still playing with rocks in the sand — only now his shoreline is the river Seine and his castle a 667,000-square-foot film studio called Cite du Cinema (literally Cinema City). Built from the shell of a 1930s thermal power plant in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis, the sprawling complex — which includes nine soundstages, a 500-seat auditorium and a full-service restaurant — is headquarters for Besson’s prolific production and distribution outfit, EuropaCorp, plus a host of affiliated vendors and two film schools.

On a recent Friday afternoon, despite a bank-holiday weekend in France, Cite du Cinema was a hive of activity as editors, sound mixers and visual effects artists readied two new EuropaCorp productions for their »

Can Luc Besson score another French-import blockbuster with 'Lucy'? (Updated)

21 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.

Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

Jason Statham Made Quite the Splash As a Competitive Diver —Take a Look!

23 July 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Who knew The Transporter was also quite the diver? New footage released from the BBC Wednesday shows actor Jason Statham participating in the 1990 Commonwealth Games in England as, you guessed it, a competitive diver. Wearing only a speedo (as any professional male diver does), Statham competes in the one-meter and three-meter springboard. He also challenges himself to the extra tall 10-meter platform. So how did he fare in the competition? Unfortunately, he made quiet the splash for all the wrong reasons. After one jump, Statham practically face-planted into the pool. The judges took note and placed him in eighth place, his best score from all three events. With much thought and »

Behind-The-Scenes Featurette Released For ‘The Expendables 3′

23 July 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We only brought you the new, colourful character posters yesterday, but we can’t help serving up more Expendables goodness, today in the form of a behind-the-scenes featurette.

Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham return as Barney and Christmas, who just happen to run into Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), former co-founder of The Expendables. However, Stonebanks and Barney didn’t end their friendship on ‘good terms’, with the pair now looking to end each other through any possible means. The endless list of co-stars includes Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Wesley Snipes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford, Antonio Banderas, Kellan Lutz, Victor Ortiz, Ronda Rousey, Kelsey Grammer and Glen Powell – now that’s one hell of a cast!

Interspersed with clips from the film, this featurette gives us a quick glimpse into what it’s like on set. By the looks of things there’s a lot of laughs and practical jokes, »

These Guys Are Nuts: 'The Expendables 3' Gets a Fun New Featurette

23 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following the colorful pop art posters featuring the whole cast of The Expendables 3, we get to see them in action and on the set of the action sequel. There's some cool new footage, including a great joke from Wesley Snipes, and also some brief talking heads from the likes of Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone and more. Some of these bits should actually be in the trailers, showing that the film is very self-aware, especially with jokes about how kicking down the door with guns blazing would be cool if it was 1995 (which is what you could say about this whole series). If this is the end for Expendables, hopefully it's a big blast. Here's the featurette for Patrick Hughes' The Expendables 3 from Lionsgate: The Expendables 3 is directed by Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) and written by Sylvester Stallone and Olympus Has Fallen scribes Creighton Rothenberger & Katrin Benedikt. »

10 Presents Celebrities Might Be Getting Prince George For His Birthday

22 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Blue Ivy Carter has a solid gold rocking horse. North West has a wardrobe any adult woman would envy. That’s the life of a celebrity baby — a King’s ransom worth of expensive gifts come birthday time. Sitting in the lap of luxury, these tiny tots have it all. So as we wish a very happy first birthday to little Prince George of Cambridge, we’re speculating the treasure troves of gifts he might be receiving from his high-flying celebrity pals to celebrate his first year on planet Earth.

It’s obviously only the best Kate and William’s son. Perhaps he’ll receive a mini James Bond suit from Daniel Craig, or a diamond encrusted pacifier from Kate Moss? Considering his family’s connections, Elton John could write him a song, or maybe he’ll get one of those mini electric cars for kids — a Beamer or a Merc, »

20 Craziest Stunts In Movie History

21 July 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

Stunt performers – the men and women who put their lives on the line to bring some of the most exciting action sequences we’ve ever seen to the big screen. They’re the unsung heroes of cinema; performers whose bravery causes us to gasp in amazement as they fall through the air, leap across vast chasms and generally risk life and limb all for the sake our entertainment.

Many of us don’t even know their names, and while – as we’ll see – there are a handful of famous actors more than prepared to step into their shoes and do their own stunts, for the most part the stunt performer is something of a mystery. Little wonder that Jason Statham – an actor who insists on performing his own stunts – has campaigned to give them their own fully deserved Oscar category.

The following list covers 20 of the craziest stunts ever »

The Expendables 3 Character Posters Get Colorful

21 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Lionsgate has unveiled a collection of The Expendables 3 characters posters, and they’re a bit, um, different.  Instead of the grit and grime of all the other marketing for the action franchise, these new posters go the opposite route and paint Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, and Co. in some bright primary colors.  I’m not sure these posters are “good” necessarily, but it’s certainly a welcome change from the bland marketing thus far.  If only the actual films were this lively. Hit the jump to take a look at the Expendables 3 character posters.  The film also stars Mel Gibson, Wesley SnipesArnold SchwarzeneggerKelsey GrammerAntonio BanderasJason StathamJet LiDolph LundgrenRandy CoutureTerry CrewsKellan LutzRonda RouseyVictor Ortiz, and Glen PowellThe Expendables 3 opens August 15th. Here’s the official synopsis for The Expendables 3: In The Expendables 3, »

Do not adjust your screens! The Day-glo colour of these character posters for The Expendables 3 might lead you to believe that something has gone horribly wrong with your screen, but they really are meant to look this way. Let's call it a tribute to Andy Warhol, or possibly to soup.The film of course sees Sylvester Stallone's Barney Ross and his team once again being enormously tough and testosterone-fuelled when faced with a new threat. This time, the bad guy is the presumed-dead co-founder of the Expendables, Mel Gibson's Conrad Stonebanks, who is back from the dead and out for revenge. To fight back, Ross recruits a whole new generation of ridiculously named tough mercenaries.The cast this time therefore includes returnees Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Jet Li and Arnold Schwarzenegger, but they're now joined by Wesley Snipes, Kelsey Grammer, Harrison Ford, Ronda Rousey, »

Comic Con Posters for The Expendables 3 Shoots Online

21 July 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Comic Con is about ready to get going over at San Diego later this week, but you won’t have to wait that long to get the Comic Con exclusive goodies. Here are some posters for “The Expendables 3″ that have shown up on the interwebs today. The plot for the third go-round finds Barney (Sylvester Stallone) and his musclebound team coming “into conflict with ruthless arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables’ co-founder, who is determined to destroy the team.” Mel Gibson plays Stonebanks. The kabooms start this August 15th. Check out the first 4 for the upcoming flick (via Empire), which features Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Wesley Snipes, and a very grandpa-next-door looking Kelsey Grammer. I suspect the rest of the gang (how many characters are in this thing, 50?) will show up later this week. »

Check Out Four New Colorful, Ass-Kicking 'Expendables 3' Comic-Con Posters (Photos)

21 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Every time an "Expendables" movie comes out, my heart gets flooded with bone-crunching glee. As a fan of '80s action movies, and the stars who anchored those movies using little more than raw muscle, some well placed sneers, and an itchy trigger finger, "The Expendables" franchise is the gift that keeps on giving. Each new installment seemingly resurrects the career of some bygone superstar, while offering plenty in the way of brand new thrills. And "Expendables 3," which has maybe the most exciting behind-the-scenes team, is no different. So we are thrilled to debut four new posters from the upcoming sequel (below). These are so hot they might as well be doused in kerosene and attached to stick of dynamite!

The four Warhol-esque character posters, rendered in bright eye-catching colors (just like a festive incendiary device), feature some of the sequel's new characters -- there's Mel Gibson as the evil »
