‘The Expendables 3’ Motion Poster Shows Off Insane Cast, Explosions, PG-13 Rating
Get ready for another outing with Sylvester and the boys who are back in town and getting the hang of this newfangled motion postering business!
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Randy Couture (poor Randy Couture) are back in The Expendables 3 and, as has quickly become franchise tradition, they have some new friends in tow. Wesley Snipes, Kelsey Grammer, Antonio Banderas and Harrison Ford join as new allies.
Together they must join forces against Expendables co-founder Conrad Stonebanks, played by none other than Mel Gibson. After a deadly dispute, Sly's Barney Ross left Stonebanks for dead. Big mistake, as it turns out! Besides all the aforementioned golden oldies, Barney also recruits young bloods Ronda Rousey, Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell and Victor Ortiz. I guess someone's gotta take care of that #Expendables hashtag! All this and bonus Robert Davi content? What more could you want?
How bout a nice little motion poster? There has been some internet grumbling about this entry being rated PG-13 whereas the previous two were R, but as someone who has followed the productions of these movies fairly closely, let me tell you that the first two were shot as PG-13s as well, with some CGI blood added in later to make it R. I guess Sly assumes the brand is big enough that they don't need to market it to just the die-hards anymore, huh?
For my part, I'm just excited to see Wesley Snipes on screen again!
