‘The Expendables 3’ First Teaser Trailer Gives Us a First Look at the Cast

It is almost time again for The Expendables to hit the big screen. Today, the people at Lionsgate gave us our first look at the cast of The Expendables 3 with the release for the first teaser trailer for the film.

Unfortunately, the purpose of a teaser trailer is nothing more than to entice you to want more. That is exactly what this does. It gives you a look at the entire cast, but doesn’t give you any specific details about the story or how all these people interact with each other.

Thankfully, we’ve got the lowdown for you.

In the third installment of the action/adventure series, we see all of our favorite Expendable return for another round of epic explosions, gun battles, hand-to-hand battles, and of course Lee Christmas’ knife wielding.

Barney, who is played by Sylvester Stallone, and the rest of the Expendables team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson, someone who they believed to be dead.

Stonebanks is one of the founding members of The Expendables, along with Barney. When Stonebanks decided that he wanted to become a ruthless arms trader, Barney soon realized that he would have to put an end to him; and he thought he had.

Now that he has overcome death, Stonebanks is on a mission to see to the destruction of The Expendables. Barney, on the other hand, is not about to let this happen.

He decides that in order to be successful here, he has to bring some new blood into the mix. So he begins to recruit a group of younger, faster, and more tech-savvy members.

What this is going to boil down to is a battle between old school style and high-tech expertise.

The cast is a veritable who’s who of action stars. Jason Statham is returning as Lee Christmas. The film also stars Jet Li as Yin Yang, Antonio Banderas as Rapido, Wesley Snipes as Surgeon, Dolph Lundgren as Gunnar Jensen, Harrison Ford as Max Drummer, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Trench, Terry Crews as Hale Caesar, Kelsey Grammer as Bonaparte, and Randy Couture as Toll Road.

Also joining the cast is UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey.

Here is a look at the teaser trailer for the film The Expendables 3.


The Expendables 3 is scheduled to be released on August 15, 2014.
