Lionsgate has debuted the first full trailer for The Expendables 3, featuring some new action packed footage from the upcoming sequel.
In The Expendables 3, Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Christmas (Jason Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables – but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
Returning for the Patrick Hughes directed sequel are Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with new additions Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, Kelsey Grammer, MMA star Ronda Rousey, welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Mel Gibson.
The Expendables 3 explodes into theaters on August 15th, 2014.
