Smartly realizing the huge amount of coin Captain America: The Winter Soldier is going to make this weekend, Lionsgate is taking advantage by attaching their 'roll call' for The Expendables 3 before the newest Marvel Studios film.
Though certainly not considered a 'trailer', it seems Lionsgate figured they could bring some new fans to the table by showing off a cool, action-packed preview of their August 15th release.
I have to say, the budget looks way bigger for this film compared to previous two and it looks like they actually got someone who knows how to direct an action film this time (Patrick Hughes). However, I'm not sure how much Kelsey Grammer has done action-wise to fit in here along this Glen Powell guy who I'm pretty sure no one has ever heard of.
Watch the 'roll call' below along with the film's officialy synopsis:
Opening in theaters on August 15, the action 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.
In The Expendables 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (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.
