Stallone confirms The Expendables 3 will be WHAT rating?!

May 19th, 2014 by Marc 1 Comment

Remember when The Expendables 2 was being made and Sylvester Stallone caused a bit of an uproar by saying it would be a PG-13? Well, guess what…

What happened in that case was they added some CGI blood and gore and it knocked the rating a bit higher – but it looks like, direct from Deadline at Cannes, Stallone has done the same thing again.

Stallone said: “We want to reach as many people as possible. It’s very close to an R, believe me, it’s right there. But I think we owe it to the next generation. We thought we’d join that club for a while.

“With the first one, I didn’t know which direction to go. It was experimental, more dramatic and heavier. In the second one, I think we went too far in the comedy and one-liners. (For the third film) I realized we should get back to being more dramatic. When men and women know each other, there’s a kind of human comedy, not jokes, but when the action starts I don’t like to do jokes. So, I believe we finally got it right on the third one. It’s kind of like marriage.”

Personally, I didn’t care for the first one at all but really loved the sequel… so it’ll be interesting to see what this one does.

But what do you guys think? A PG-13 rating… disaster, result or so what? Let us know in the usual ways

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
